Format: Paperback
As seen in the last volume Abby And Mark are expecting a baby. Of course with Mark being the most powerful superhero on Earth there are issues that need to be handled. Every scenario a scifi writer could come up with for a superhero baby is dealt with ( a superkick from a fetus for example) and on we go to the drama. How to prepare for the baby, How they will handle Mark's superhero career and finding the right doctor. On top of that The bookstore isn't doing well and women love telling Abby horror stories about their pregnancies. And worst of all for Abby, she cant have coffee while pregnant.

Of course darkblade has problems as well. Moving in With his girlfriend provides problems in their relationship leading him to take a sidekick ( or as he calls them, an intern) and Amazonia has problems with her family back home.

What makes this comic great is how human the superheroes are and how the issues are dealt with. The characters are likeable, relatable and best of all, funny. My mother doesn't like comic books but she has come to like Love and Capes and a sitcom with superheroes that makes us all smile. We come to love these characters and are drawn in to their stories. Love and capes is a story that works on many levels and would have made a better movie than My super Ex girlfriend.

I have to give high recommendations to this book.

I hope that this isn't the last volume of the series (despite Zahler giving out every indication that it is), but if it is then we're left on a rather positive note as a whole. Most of the big issues (not that this series had many) are all wrapped up in rather neat bow of sorts, so if Zahler does decide to take a big hiatus or just stop here, you won't be shaking your fist for more closure.

As you can expect, this volume is about Abby's pregnancy and all of what that might entail. It's actually interesting that Zahler decided to include the idea of the baby potentially having superpowers while in the womb, something I didn't initially think about when I read the baby cliffhanger in the previous volume. I suppose that this is partially because the comic never really addressed the whole "man of steel, woman of tissue paper" issue, but it's a reasonable worry for any expectant mother.

There are of course interesting side notes, including one Aha! moment that I slightly caught on to while reading the final chapter of the book- but not for the reasons that Darkblade caught on. All I will say is that a certain child-like Shazam! based superhero was talking like a far older person than he did in previous volumes.

All in all, this was a nice ending to the series- but I hold out hope for a future one-shot or more issues. It's a great series and a nice sendoff for a cast I've really grown to love.

It a shame the IDW dropped this series when they have almost half a dozen Transformers and Joe titles As sad as it is to see the title to go this is a worth read.

Learning that Abby is expecting is the start of a new adventure that goes through this book as the two turn to a super hero doctor to handle the coming baby and the joys of the soon to be grandparents, aunt and uncle. They practice baby rehersal with baby sitting the kid Abby's brother and wife had. While Amazonia and Darkblade deals with first moving in together than her having to return to her own dimension to except the throne, Evil Brain attempt to use a curse tiki to swap bodies with Mark causes Mark and Abby to swap bodies when there only two months before the baby is due. Like Batman had Robin Darkblade start seeking out the perfect ward to take up his mantle when he retire.

We do get a look into the future to see what Mark and Abby kid is like as a grown super.

I purchased this volume for the Kindle, and I want to let other Kindle readers know that viewing the book on your device is not a problem at all. The comics' panels are just large enough to read on a 7" Kindle Fire, but there's also an added feature that allows you to tap a panel to slightly enlarge it.

As for the story itself -- there's much to love! If you've been following the Love & Capes saga online but are eager to skip ahead and learn about Mark & Abby's newest adventure (impending parenthood!) you'll want to grab yourself a copy now! The artwork is well done, and the author/artist has a knack for weaving multiple mini-plots and bringing life to all the different characters. Whether you're a fan of comic books or romantic comedies -- or both -- you'll get a kick out Love & Capes!

More of the fantastic stories you've come to expect with Mark/Abby/Paul/Zoe.

Paul and Zoe's relationship gets a little (well, not so little) strain applied.

Additions are made to the 'who knows' list.

Paul deduces the baby's sex, and how he does it is surprising. I would like to say I managed it too, but since I enjoyed the reveal so much, I don't feel all that bad.

Only down side: I discovered L&C online at the point where the story was only slightly behind the 2nd half of Volume 3, and Volume 4 was about to be published. Now I have to wait FOREVER (or it will at least seem that way) for Volume 4, since I live nowhere near a comic shop, but I prefer the collected editions, anyway.
