Happens to be, I love comic books. So, much of this, rings like something I would have enjoyed. However, it really is more like introduction chapters to books, rather than a story itself. I agree with one of the reviews, some of it was like a creative writing exercise.... If those writing were really GOOD creative writers. Not all of the stories end, (in fact most don't), though it doesn't QUITE feel like cliff hangers, simply because most of them were too SHORT to get real development of the characters.
That said, it was enjoyable.
Will I read it again? Probably not.
Would I recommend it? Yea.. but it should be 1.99 not 2.99
If it goes on sale, and you like alternative ideas to superheros and super villains, get it.
Also the E. Gannon story in this was also released in Mad Scientist Guide to Dating. Bummer that I paid for that twice. I don't know if the others were found in other Anthologies, I had not read them before.
I especially liked the story "Lovesick: Chasing the Storm", told from the demented point of view of a villain who falls in love with a superhero and tries endlessly to impress him by committing horrific crimes.
The purpose for this anthology is clear from the foreword: if you don't like what the professionals are writing, write it yourself. And, in my opinion, this book achieves its goal.
I would recommend it to anyone who is tired of the same old character tropes in fiction. Defininitely a must read!
