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.
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.
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!
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.

I love this series. I've read all four volumes and enjoyed them all. I couldn't recommend this more. Great purchase.Published on May 13, 2014 by Wingfield
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. Read morePublished on February 26, 2014 by ChibiNeko
