Soon I Will Be Invincible

Soon I Will Be Invincible - Austin Grossman, J. Paul Boehmer, Coleen Marlo There's nothing terribly new or original here. It was a fun, fast-paced superhero story that doesn't quite hit the mark in terms of originality or innovation. It read like an indie graphic novel in a "new universe" setting -- the characters are all a lot like those we've seen for years, just with different masks and costumes. Had this book come along earlier, it would probably have been much more popular, but there have been a fair number of superhero novels written since the 80s and 90s, and this one felt mostly like a retread. I did enjoy it, but it's nothing special and not something I would recommend except for a few hours of light escapism.
