Deconstructing Superheroes After Millar and Vaughn Kick Ass
Cheese Steak Jimmy
Special (RX) Specioprin Hydrochloride  [DVD]
"An ultra low-budget, quirky as hell movie that examines what would happen if someone was given a drug that made them think they were invincible"
The The Marshal Law Omnibus
"Before Mark Millar and Garth Ennis there was Pat Mills- the man hates superheroes :)"
The Complete Major Bummer Super Slacktacular!
"What happens when a slacker accidentally gets super-powers, instead of the upstanding citizen they were meant for? One of the most under-rated comics ever released..."
The Authority : Relentless
"Superheroes go hard sci-fi under the helm of Warren Ellis."
The Authority : Under New Management
"Mark Millar takes over from Ellis, and really revels in the sadism"
The Boys Definitive Edition Volume 1 HC
"Garth Ennis turns his hateful British eye on to the spectre of superheroics... not for the squeamish"
Hulk: WWH - Damage Control TPB (Graphic Novel Pb)
"McDuffie writes about the people who clean up after the superheroes have destroyed everything. Issues of the original series from 20 years ago available on Amazon dot com"
Youngblood Volume 1
"Much as Liefeld is a pariah amongst comicbook fans, Youngblood did crudely attempt to analyse how superheroes would be celebrities..."
Powers: The Definitive Collection Volume 1 HC: v. 1
"Bendis is at his best writing solo characters- this features two detectives dealing with superheroes in a very-noir universe"
Incognito TPB (Graphic Novel Pb)
"Brubaker and Phillips excel in this noir-esque tale of a reformed super villain"
IRREDEEMABLE TP VOL 01
"The legendary Mark Waid examines what would happen if Superman had enough, and decided to go bad. The companion piece, Incorruptable (about when a villain turns good) is worth a read as well..."
Astro City: Life in the Big City (Kurt Busiek's Astro City)
"Kurt Busiek examines the interactions of normal folks and superheroes in Astro City. Wonderful stuff."
Marvels Premiere HC
"Busiek and Ross look at how normal folk would feel growing up in the Marvel Universe- a beautifully painted fan boy love letter to Marvel comics"
"Even if you hated the movie (I didn't) this is worth a look- even though it's considered a Post-Modern Deconstruction, it actually has a literary bent, employing novelistic bookends for each issue"
"What happens when civilians are killed in a superhero fight? Wonderful art by Steve Mcniven"
"Mark Millar wanted to write Watchmen for supervillains. Didn't happen- what we got was Eminem discovering he was a supervillain."
X-Force Volume 1: New Beginning TPB
"Pete Milligan's big 'f@*k you' to Rob Liefeld- inheriting Liefeld's book, basing a character on Liefeld himself, and then showing Liefeld how Youngblood should have been done."
Alias Ultimate Collection Book 1 TPB (Graphic Novel Pb)
"worth a look is his female P.I.. series, Alias- like Chandler-noir in the Marvel Universe"
Daredevil By Brian Michael Bendis & Alex Maleev Ultimate Collection Book 1 TPB (Graphic Novel Pb)
"Bendis "outs" Daredevil to the public, which begins a 40 odd issue run dealing with the aftermath."
Squadron Supreme TPB
"Gruenwald's deconstruction of superheroes came out around the time of Watchmen, but didn't receive quite the same fanfair. Pity..."
Top 10 TP Book 01
"Alan Moore does superheroes in a Police Department; sounds similar to Powers, but has a very different tone"
Planetary, Vol. 1, All Over The World And Other Stories
"Superheroics and pulp conspiracy theories abound as this secret superhero team take on an evil Fantastic Four"
Fantastic Four: Unstable Molecules TPB
"'Shakespeare in Love' done with the Fantastic Four, with Lee and Kirby meeting them at a party"
Supreme: Return v. 2
"Alan Moore apologies for deconstructing superheroes; turns to homaging the greats with his spin on Superman."
Absolute All Star Superman HC
"Anti-deconstruction to the hilt, Morrison writes a moving, hugely enjoyable take on Superman; Mark Waid reckons it is the best Superman ever written"
