Once again Young has written a novel that captured my attention from the first page. His comical, slightly snarky writing style brings out the characters in a manner that I found both endearing and very approachable. He created an entire world and cast that I found myself continually coming back to. I enjoyed becoming part of it as I lost myself in the story.

I enjoyed the way in which the plot progressed throughout. Not only did the characters become more and more developed throughout, but the antics and other issues and events that came about throughout were loads of fun.

I’ll admit that this was my intro into the world of graphic novels, but Young definitely has me hooked! This was a fantastic story that was truly enriched by the graphics.

Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.

Mark Victor Young mixes humor, comics and a crime story in one plot. The Launch showcases Watson Sinclair and his friend JC Dubois, wannabe cartoonist for the daily papers. They have a sick plan to realize their dream. They kidnap Ray Bennett, editor of Royal Features Syndicate and manage to sneak into Canada to collaborate on a new comic series, and a hopefully successful launch. Narrow escapes, stupid failures, attempts to hide their ventures from their families and the police.
E-mails and comics are thrown as intermezzos, there's so much to laugh about. Young did his best to create lively characters, typical male conversation lines and intentional twists to keep his readers locked in until the final chapter. A great return of the author of Awkward Stages.

Anyone who has ever been a frustrated artist or stymied in their grand career ambitions should read this novel. The story is often genuinely funny and I've never seen a book that incorporated graphics like this. Very clever and feels real, especially the details about the gun show.

Highly recommended if you're looking for a fun romp that leaves you wondering throughout, how are they going to come out the other end of this bumpy ride?

The Launch by Mark Victor Young is surprisingly the best humor adventure that readers will take. This was the first novel, I have read by this brilliant mastermind. His writing forces readers to keep turning the pages. Every page is filled with laugh-out-loud moments, suspense, and intrigue. Readers curiosity will kill them if they don't read it until the last page. The Launch is freshly told with an air of drama, humor, and tight deadlines that might prove to be the very end for the characters or their new anticipated future they always dreamed of...

Inside, The Launch shows readers just how far some people are willing to risk everything to get what they always dreamed of...they have a plan. Everything is thought out...and all they have to do...is complete each step. If they fail...everything they know will fall apart. Two married men who fall into kidnapping and taking over the comic strips to get their comics published. The question is will it work out or will they fail? Mark Victor Young is a talented writer who brings readers an exciting and intoxicating thrill ride...The Launch. I loved it, and I highly recommend this story to all. I look forward to reading more by Mark Victor Young in the future. His work is indeed one I nor any other reader would want to miss.
