Book Description

From ASBOs to superheroes... Misfits follows five teenagers on community service who get caught in a freak storm and develop superpowers. Hard-as-nails Kelly can suddenly hear people's thoughts, shamed sporting star Curtis discovers he has the ability to turn back time when he regrets something, party girl Alisa can send people into a sexual frenzy when they touch her skin, Rudy can split into two people and painfully shy Simon can make himself invisible when he feels he's being ignored. These aren't your conventional superheroes with capes and tights. Our misfits have ankle tags and criminal records, and soon discover what a nightmare life can be when you're lumbered with a super power you don't want... Full-colour and brimming with never-seen-before photos and too-rude-for-TV cartoons and illustrations, this book will provide you with everything you ever wanted to know about MISFITS but were too afraid you'd get headbutted to ask.

5.0 out of 5 stars Everything you'd expect and more~ 28 Nov. 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Provides a fantastic insight into the characters of Misfits, not just the main cast but all those forgotten characters who have appeared throughout the series as well. Very well written and in-keeping with the style of Misfits, flawlessly transitioning to the page with a variety of creative and almost annual-parody-ing shorts throughout. Some very clever and hilarious pieces in here, as well as a few hints and clues that provide some interesting insight to things about the series you may not have learned just from watching the show. A definite must-have for die-hard Misfits fans.

Not to mention this book will probably be quite collectable one day, so keep it in good condition!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Perfect Companion Guide 11 Oct. 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Published to coincide with the airing of series four, this book features all manner of Misfits-related material, mostly presented as short articles about a particular - and often explicit - subject composed by specific characters, though there are numerous infographics offering additional background information, as well as short stories, a comic, and excerpts of two cut scripts.

The material itself is endlessly entertaining, and the in-character writing is suitably superb, with plenty of references and in-jokes only the sharpest of fans will notice. The only downside is that there is little spotlight on series four newcomers Jess and Finn, and no information at all on Abby, Alex, and characters and events from series five.

Hopefully another book will be published to coincide with the proposed movie :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Great bonus for Misfits lovers 26 Mar. 2015
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I really appreciate the speed of delivery and the quality of packing. It was mentioned that this item has been used already, so it is "second-hand". But it looks as if nobody ever touched it - absolutely brand new! Being a huge Misfits fan I absolutely adore this book: every single page is full of fun stuff, colorful pictures and other interesting and funny facts about characters. I like the way it is written in the first person - from the point of view of each member of the gang. So if you just finished watching the TV series you will love this book. It is a great bonus for all the Misfits lovers. The book literally exceeded my expectations.
Thank you for your service :)

5.0 out of 5 stars A must-have Misfits companion 29 May 2015
By Amazon Customer TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
I'm addicted to 'Misfits' at the moment. I know that I've discovered this little treasure from E4 rather late, but I'm playing catch-up and bingeing on the DVD box sets. I had a search on Amazon to see what other merchandise they might be available out there, and was delighted when I found this book. I had a lot of fun this one, and highly recommend it to fellow fanatics.

This is a hardback which requires you to be a viewer already in order to fully understand and appreciate it's content. This isn't a straight-forward, dryly written history of all what's happened on the show, but instead, is full of in-jokes that came from the series, and some 'added features'. If you are fan, you'll find the stuff on these pages to be real laugh-a-minute stuff.

In a lavishly illustrated, full colour volume, the reader is given a peak inside these quirky characters' heads, including the minor and one-off Asbo teens that pop up throughout the series. There's a ton of information about each, often written in character, and author Mike O'Leary (who was part of the show's original writing team) did a superb job in capturing their voices and personalities for this book.

Other content that will provide endless giggles include the kids' probation reports, A-Z lists, and a 20 page comic book version of the first episode.

Like the series, 'Misfits' the book is very entertaining, very clever, unpredictable, completely offensive in the most wonderful way, and something that you'll want to turn in and out of again and again. The constant sex references and bad language are as present on these pages as they are on the screen, brilliant stuff. Highly recommended!
