"My name is Dylan Taylor, human incarnation of the burning dumpster gif, and this is my life"
I always wanted to be an X-Man. Except people and me never got along, and apparently you need social skills to run a successful team.
Cue Emma Hall's party. One slightly awkward kiss, and now I can talk to objects like my pillow (who's far too invested in my love life) and my baseball bat (who was a pacifist before I got hold of him). And there's a whole group of us with strange abilities, including super hot ice queen Dani Kim who doesn't approve of how reckless I can be. The bigger problem is there's a mysterious mutant causing unnatural disasters, and we're the ones who have to stop him. But things blow up in my face, and the team's on the edge of falling apart. I've always been a disaster. How am I supposed to be a hero?

"Cute Mutants is a wild electric joyride from start to finish. The superhero genre at its best, with thrilling, vivid fight scenes, voice-y high school angst, and queer found family that grabs you by the throat. This series is a rainbow-glitter explosion of subverted tropes and fast-paced action that leaps from the page straight into your heart."

"An irreverent, ultra-nerdy, and unapologetically queer exploration of found family, self-discovery, and smashing the patriarchy-all unfolding via a sharp character voice."
- Claire Winn, author of City of Shattered Light
"Gloriously flawed characters going hard in all their messy, big-hearted queer teen glory, as they navigate a wild ride of newfound powers, responsibility to themselves and others, and shifting relationships in a fantastically screwball world of unlikely superpowers. Deeply loveable in its relatability, I'm burning through this series a supersonic speeds."
- Ash van Otterloo, author of A Touch of Ruckus
