A comicbook tale with literary flare!,
This review is from: Soon I Will be Invincible (Paperback)
I have really enjoyed reading this book. Being a long-term fan of the comic genre, Grossman's book made a well-written alternative.
Told from the alternating perspectives of the world's foremost super villain and a newcomer to the mantle of "superhero", you are trated to a whirlwind ride through the trials and tribulations of the classic Good vs. Evil.
Filled with acknowledgeable cliches and parallels from established comics, the story contains unique yet familiar characterisations, given their own new flare in the pages of this book. The history of the world in which these heroes and villains exist is vividly brought to the mind's eye along with all its rich history.
Full of twists, turns and chapter-end cliffhangers "Soon I Will Be Invincible" is an absorbing read; the best of the comic genre in a detailed transliteration.
A sequel set in the same world would be most appreciated!
