2107 AD: A generation ago, Earth and the cislunar colonies banned genetic and cybernetic modifications. But out in the Asteroid Belt, anything goes. Dozens of flourishing space habitats are spawning exotic new societies and strange new varieties of humans. It's a volatile situation that threatens the peace and stability of the entire solar system.

Emerald Blair is a Troubleshooter. Inspired by the classic superhero comics of the twentieth century, she's joined with other mods to try to police the unruly Asteroid Belt. But her loyalties are tested when she finds herself torn between rival factions of superhumans with very different agendas. Emerald wants to put her special abilities to good use, but what do you do when you can't tell the heroes from the villains?

Great Performances but an ok story by Gab (Posted on 7/15/2018)
I loved the cast and production, but the story wasn't what I expected. Too many sex scenes, the female cast felt oversexualised and the pace was a bit slow. But it was an enjoyable listen. Good job GraphicAudio
Only Superhuman by Chris (Posted on 5/5/2017)
This story was good, but not great. It's an interesting piece of sci-fi, with an equally interesting tie to "superhero prose". The protagonist is a genetically and bionically enhanced "Troubleshooter", inspired by the comic books of our era. Her organization of "Troubleshooters" are influenced--and say as much--by the costumed superheroes of comic books. However, their talent sets are all original--I didn't come away from it thinking any character was a rip-off of someone from a comic book.

The pacing of the story was kind of slow in the beginning but picked up well as the storyline progressed. I found the protagonist to be more than a little unsympathetic. Through most of the story, she's being manipulated--either by others, or by her own self-serving needs for acceptance, purpose, and intimacy.

It's was ok
Great! by john (Posted on 9/16/2016)
Just like the Marvel and DC stories Only Super Human was great! I couldn’t stop listening and would love to hear a follow up to this amazing story!
Only Superhuman by Dave (Posted on 10/15/2015)

Only Superhuman by Anthony (Posted on 9/7/2015)
This was enjoyable to listen to because of GA and story could be better.
Thumbs up by Victor (Posted on 7/31/2015)
Some interesting concepts. Overall a well writen and told tale. Enjoyed it once. If I saw a sequel whould I buy it? Most likely not.
While the sex scenes are not graphic, there are a LOT of them.
ONLY SUPERHUMAN is anything but ordinary by EliSamuel (Posted on 7/1/2015)
I was only a fan of the main stream comics from Marvel and DC and hesitantly purchased this audiobook. I'm glad I did. It had action, drama, super powers, sex, and espionage. Hopefully, it becomes a major motion picture as well. I recommend this title.
Not a kiddie comic book heroine by Mary Jo (Posted on 2/17/2015)
Didn't know what to expect about with this production. Listened to it with an open mind. I was surprised at how well I enjoyed it. This story has a lot of twists and expected turns. The turns were slightly unexpected in content. I enjoyed how the character voices fit the story well. Emerald's childhood voice was great. I enjoyed how our heroine tries to deal with justice, right, wrong and shades of grey. There were moments when story would start to drag. Then the story would pick up its pace again. I recommend this production emphasis that due to some content it is not for the younger audiences.
Superheros and Sex by Thomas (Posted on 1/23/2015)
Man it's been a while since I listened to this one! It's a bit more adult than your average comic book story, so it might not be for everyone. The story was good, but seemed to go off track a bit in some spots, which is why I'm giving it a four.
A title that saves itself from itself by Traypaniel (Posted on 11/21/2014)
It's a nice take on superheroes, and the story focus on one particular character. The whole of the story is on this character's shoulders and at times it teeters because you start to wonder if this is even a character you should really like or even consider finishing the CD set. But, she (the character) feels real in a way that makes a person really doubt the path she paved with her life. I know the biggest question a lot of viewers will have is: is all the sex really necessary? While I can't answer that, I would recommend this title to someone that wants to try something a little different. Though...I don't think this will have a sequel.
Honestly wanted to like it by damien (Posted on 11/5/2014)
It's not terrible, it certainly has its moments but there are some major issues. The story bounces around quite a bit, particularly with flashbacks and does not always make a lot of sense at first.

Some people complain about the sex scenes, but although it's a major plot element, it's mostly inferred, however it is a bit overdone.

The story itself doesn't really go much of anywhere and there is not a strong feeling of catharsis when the story is done. It meanders a bit from here and there and is FAR too melodramatic for my tastes.

There are a few fun scenes, and I have heard worse GA titles, but I was pretty disappointed. However if you want a superhero space soap opera, this may be a perfect pick for you.
only superhuman by Linda (Posted on 8/7/2014)
like the avenger they keep you on the edge of you seat
Only Superhuman by Arlon (Posted on 8/2/2014)
Really good storyline. Though she comes to terms with who she is at the end, I would really like a series to continue.
Almost... by Michael (Posted on 7/16/2014)
The story is good , the voice acting is fantastic. This has amazing potential for a series. I'd just like to see a little more substance and less sexuality
I'm with Timothy by Andrew (Posted on 6/27/2014)
My ratings is completely based on the plot of the story, and should not deter you from checking out any other GraphicAudio production because honestly this will make you want you money back.
Absolutely great! by Jory (Posted on 5/1/2014)
The story had me listening on my business trip to the point where I didn't want to get out of the car. The characters were very animated and colorful. Some of the situations are hard to relate to because of the books environment and language. But overall, a great book.
it's ok by Lee (Posted on 4/11/2014)
took me a min to get into it but yeah it's good
Not bad by Donald (Posted on 4/4/2014)
very different take on superheroes. Hoping there's a followup to these characters
oversexed drivil by Timothy (Posted on 3/8/2014)
The pros:
-Once again, the acting is great, and sound effects are spot on.
-At time, the ideas in the plot have potential.

-way too much (and at time underage) sex.
-Often the main characters are unlikable, and show they have very little value in human life. This is fine if you are the villain of the tale, but this is from the hero.
-The author uses sex a character growth and power,
Intriguing Experience by Luke (Posted on 2/18/2014)
This book is overall excellent and further improved by the work of everyone involved at Graphic Audio! The action, themes, story, voice acting (especially for Emerald and Psyche, but the others did very well too), music, and sound effects were handled extremely well. The social commentary and especially the philosophical discussions were conveyed in a solid manner, but with awkward timing (not GA's fault by any means).

If I may be so bold, even the portrayals of sex (i.e., the women voice acting the grunts) managed to be superb and... extraordinarily refreshing. I hope that Graphic Audio would consider more books with these kinds of scenes, and portraying them as was done with Only Superhuman.

Verdict: VERY enjoyable listening experience and looking forward to more!
Review by Alexandre (Posted on 9/6/2013)
Great story and great performances. Enough twists to keep interested. The character development is interesting to follow. Hoping for a sequel...
Review by Barney McCasland (Posted on 5/23/2013)
While Only Superhuman is not one of my personal GA favorites, it is an excellent, emotionally intense, action-packed science fiction novel with strong superheroic elements... I would definitely buy a sequel...
Review by Johnny Tai (Posted on 5/23/2013)
Fantastically done and nicely paced- this is a one-shot book at a world similar to Elizabeth Moon's Vata's War series, with more sex, more light-hearted humor, yet with a serious undercurrent that will keep you interested.

The last part where the TSC got taken back onto the right track seemed strangely rushed...I was really looking forward to a big showdown with Tai, and then it got covered over in like one paragraph- not sure if it was written that way or was the result of abridgement.

The performances were fantastic as usual, especially on the part of Emerald and Psychi.

Some parts of this book can come across as a bit crude, especially with the casual way sexuality is flaunted- but that too is part of its charm in a way.

What I think is the most impressive performancewise is when Emerald tries to go into a speech of right and wrong and she comes across as awkward yet definitely sincere.

The work on Emerald's childhood voice is also noteworthy- some times children voices can come across as kinda fake, but this one is very convincing.
Review by Eric Butler (Posted on 5/23/2013)
I have mixed feelings about this particular title. Honestly, I thought that it would be a bit more tongue in cheek with a more humorous side. It is a good story with many twists and turns and contains a lot of tortured soul type of drama. I thought it got a bit bogged down in the drama department. Nevertheless, I did enjoy it.
