The League of Regrettable Superheroes: Half-Baked Heroes from Comic Book History
Some heroes are born super. Others achieve super. Some…are really superheroes, but, for some reason or another, never catch the public’s fancy and descend into obscurity, from whence only a dedicated researcher like Jon Morris can rescue them for brief appearance in a compendium of the least-popular superheroes of all time. Shazam! Ladies and gentlemen, please greet The League of Regrettable Superheroes!
This book is not for the casual; it reads like an encyclopedia, despite the author’s best attempts to spice things up with humor and wit. You will meet such unlikely favorites as Bee-Man, The Eye, and Dracula (no, not that Dracula—and not that one either—but trust me, he’s really cool). Like most encyclopedias, there is certainly an audience who would voraciously consume the contents of this one. But for the general, comic-book-unenlightened public, this will likely remain a curiosity. However, also like most encyclopedias, this one is packed with gorgeous full-color pictures (one for every page, no less!), astute, revelatory information about every comic book era and the zeitgeist of each. Fans of the genre, and those wishing to become so, will find this work invaluable.
