Well, here's a book that I never thought would exist, but considering Lloyd's taken his beloved Toxie through every other form of media (including a musical), I suppose it was only a matter of time.

As with Lloyd's filmmaking books, The Toxic Avenger: The Novel is full of asides from the writers and 4th wall breaking moments between Lloyd and his ever-suffering editor. Not only has Lloyd taken the original Toxic Avenger material and converted it into a book, he's also added some things to make it

I was really psyched when I bought this book. Then I was psyched for another 50 pages. Then finishing it was kind of a pain. But it looks cool on my shelf.

Troma films have a notorious reputation for being incredibly bad, but I think this book went a little too far. Much of it was just crude humor filler and the rest was stuff from the 1984 film of the same title. If you're looking for anything original or anything that's comedic with effort put into it and not just repeated immature sex jokes, you won't find anything here. This book was honestly a disappointment.
