The Wonderboy Serials : Season 1

“Who will save us from Wonderboy?”

A lone man with extraordinary powers is responsible for the longest sustained global peace in modern history. Though worshiped for toppling brutal regimes, wiping out crime, and cleaning up financial institutions, dark realizations about Wonderboy threaten to unravel his hold on the public imagination.

A modern reinvention of the serialized dime store novel, the “Wonderboy” series examines the real-world implications of an all-powerful superhero from many perspectives such as a brilliant supervillian wasting away in a maximum security prison and a feminist blogger determined to expose the truth about Wonderboy to an adoring public...

Eggs

24 pages of achingly bittersweet awesome from everyone’s favorite bassist from psychedelic rock band, The Gentle Art of Floating. This book is rated Mature Eyes Only.

The Good
This is a neat little compilation of honest stories, and you may just find yourself relating to one. Even if you can’t, they are tales about life that you can get a laugh from.  With sections involving everything from working at a sex shop, to the woes of school, the stories are certainly meant to entertain.  The newspaper comic style you don’t usually see in a book suits the approach to storytelling.

The Bad
Although some of the stories you may be able to relate to, not everyone will be able to appreciate all of the topics discussed...

These stories mix and match monsters in new milieus that bring out new and interesting twists on the monsters and their victims.

Cricket, Agent of U.N.I.C.O.R.N

“Cricket jumps out of the pages of Critter as she takes on a Russian terrorist cell as well as tackling her own internal conflicts. Cricket has choices to make like any other super powered person, but has her life of crime and her desire to see the heroes of the world punished for her father’s death been worth the struggle?

Villain or hero is a decision she has to make on her own – or with some careful nudging from Paradox.”

Sometimes, in life, you just drop the ball. That’s what I did with this review.
