In Tights, the oft-pondered but unasked question of how Superheroes manage to chew the scenery without tearing their skintight costumes gets resolved. While Heroes in Waiting explores the life of second string superheroes turned sexual role-models.
Jackel vs. Thresher shows the dynamic between a superhero and his foe, while Captain Chicken Hawk, The Bat and The Raven, and Hummingbird all highlight the lowly sidekick and his admiration for his partner.
There's more super-sex than you can probably handle in one sitting, full of lengthy descriptions of musculature and oversized members, but there's an overall tone of self-mockery in the stories. They retain the casually ridiculous and tongue-in-cheek amusement of an actual comic book. Kosher Man and the Shegatz, for example, is the story of a Jewish he-man, whose only weakness is that no food that is not Kosher can pass through his lips. Or A Dirty Job, which follows formerly popular heroes and their plot to put the new star on the scene out of business so they can return to their former glory.
As with most anthologies, not all of the stories stand out, but the winners definitely outnumber the ho-hum tales, so I can't recommend this highly enough.
Don't waste your money - it sounds really fun, but this book is a HUGE disappointment. EVEN if you're in the mood for erotica.
The book felt like the efforts of one guy to slap a book together and see how much it would sell. So he just hastily gathered a bunch of stories together and put them in one book. That's about it.
The writing is pretty basic - characters lack any true sense of identity. The dialog is more on the side of kitsch than camp. And even the involvement of their being superhuman was handled poorly and did not provide any real value to the stories. One or two might have been decent but the rest were a struggle to read and get through.
Save your money - you're better off looking for free erotica on the web, much of which tends to be a lot better written (and a lot hotter) than this.
