"....we get a strong sense of this world, where some incredibly powerful beings do battle in mundane housing develops, while other cultivate eccentric hobbies; some don't bother to take off the suit before doing their chores while others enjoy the finer things in life." io9.com
"When we took a look at the new Eric Curtis photography book, Fallen Superheroes, we were nearly in tears we laughed so hard!! If you are a comic book lover, you will surely enjoy the misfit Superheroes created by the LA-based photographer, with text by Adam Mock and Scott Allen Perry." - trendland.com
About the Author
A new universe through the lens of Eric Curtis: Originally from Albuquerque, New Mexico, Eric moved to California after college and lives in LA where he has photographed such Hollywood notables as David Lynch, Danny Glover, rocker Tommy Lee, the bands My Chemical Romance and Linkin Park, and rapper Method Man. Eric's unique approach to photography emphasizes bringing studio lighting to the outside world, which allows him to dictate the terms of the world he's shooting. Fallen Superheroes is Eric's vision brought to life through his lens and the unique storytelling of authors Scott Allen Perry and Adam Mock, whom he collaborated with on Mime Very Own Book.
Scott Allen Perry is an actor, independent filmmaker and writer who produced, wrote and directed segments for all 3 seasons of FuelTV's sketch comedy show Stupidface. He has directed and written episodes of the hit YouTube series Retarded Policeman which has garnered over 100 million views and is still growing and he wrote & directed the hilarious documentary The Outdoorsmen: Blood, Sweat & Beers which premiered on SpikeTV and IFC. Scott previously teamed up with Adam Mock and Eric Curtis for the hilarious Mime Very Own Book.
Adam Mock has been with Medallion Press since 2004. He began his publishing career as art director for Medallion and currently serves as the president and creative director for the newly formed Medallion Media Group. He's mad with ADD and uses his mind-forever-voyaging to bring himself hours of amusement . . . usually at the expense of others.

Uncanny work, gentlemen. When can we expect the sequel?
there are over 300 pages for under $30.00 and each page is unique, well shot and the back stories make me wish there were 300 more pages to delve through.
call 9-juan-juan next time you need saving.
The photographs are absolutely magnificent and the section about how they were made is fascinating reading for anybody interested in photography. The color and lighting are lush, luxurious, and larger than life, which only amplifies the plight of their subjects.
The photos and stories are funny but in a touchingly sad way. We know that when we laugh at these, we are laughing at the ignominious parts of ourselves.
Well, if they are also comic book fans, you end up with Fallen Superheroes, a visual description of superheros who (or whose "superpowers ") didn't quite make the grade.
An unusual visual treat.
