Superhero Fantasy

Where does the fantasy story start and the comic book end? As with many of these sub-genres, this category has more than its share of grey area. The Superhero Fantasy has, at its heart, characters with super powers and/ or unusual abilities. The heroes and villains act out many of the same roles as you’d find in a comic book story line, only in a fantasy setting. George R.R. Martin‘s Wildcards Series is a good example of this sub-genre.
