I enjoy these novels, even if the first three have been a little too slow moving for my preference. My favorite parts are always the flashback scenes to Merciless’ college days when he’s unknowingly dating Ultragoddess, the greatest heroine in the world. They are always quite humorous and masterfully capture that nostalgic feeling old comics can bring to mind. The other thing I love about these books is how Phipps brings all the great themes and plot devices of comics into play in frankly ridiculous fashion. It just makes them fun.
He is a chaotic neutral person, who is so morally ambivalent on every level that he really doesn't stand for anything.
After a few books, I was hoping for a revelation that would make me understand the character and the events so far better.
But it's not worth buying the fourth book to find out. I just don't care about the characters any more.
The main plot was serviceable, following Gary's attempts to revive Mandy, his attempt to solve the death of Ultragod, and President Omega's attempt to kill Gary and destroy the rest of the world. The proofreading is better than the initial release of the last book, but still has its iffy bits from hilarious homophones to missing formatting and swapped letters to the occasional seemingly misplaced sentence, but it was readable. It felt a little bit cramped with a lot of action and new characters crammed in and then eliminated within a page or two. I did like the general thrust of when to stand your ground against the reality of the world and when to yield and accept that it's going to cause more pain fighting it. And, as is par for Gary's life, half of his problems get resolved almost off-stage by other characters and forces in the world.
I vacillated between a 3 and a 4 on this. It's not as good as the first two books in my opinion, but it is still good. It ends with even less resolution than the last two books, clearly indicating a sequel, albeit one where I don't know that the stakes are all that raised compared to what they faced here. I am looking forward to the greater aftermath from this compared to the prior books in that the mayhem is clearly indicated to have hit more than just Falconcrest or the Society of Superheroes, but rather been a worldwide disaster. It's hinted that the next frontier might be that final one of Space, so we do have new ground to cover although, at this point, I'm wondering if the fourth one should cap off Gary's tale.
