This isn't a bad comic, which some good jokes, some great art, and some good points to make. It's just a little too on the nose, without a lot of subtlety, and while some of the jokes are good, they're rather mild and tame. It's a solid effort, but not quite the special comic it could be.

The perfect gift for anyone who's ever loved comics,especially Superhero ones. A who's who of legendary artists like Neal Adams,Gil Kane,Joe Kubert and Frank Miller contribute art to Mark Evanier's very funny story of a comic book geek trying to make his way in the world and get the girl of his dreams. Manages to be sweet and very funny at the same time. If you enjoyed this you might like the work of Evan Dorkin. You might also enjoy Barry Lyga's The Astonishing Adventures of Fanboy and Goth Gir...more

I wondered why I had never heard of this book/series, & after having read it, I now know. They take what could be a good concept & turn it into a self-promoting display with a lame story, poor attempts at humor, and a stereotype of a lead character that comic book fans have been trying to get past for a long time. That said, Sergio's art, along with the art of the many guest artists, was enough to earn this one a second star.
