Review:
Comics are an underrated frontier in books for younger readers. In this welcomed addition to the genre, O'Connor captures the imaginative richness of childhood Super Herodom. There is: drama, monsters, cooperation with former Super Villains, a humorous end where the bad guy gets his and an annoying little brother who actually turns out to be of some real use after all. Parents, remember to provide the sound effects and your kids will never forget this book.
