really liked it


I think this will be as much a fun for adults as children.

Great Cover and illustrations by Laura Ellen Anderson.

There is some great dialogue. Here are a few of my faves:
“”the first rule of a superhero: you can’t go round using your powers for vegetable preparation”
“One does not simply walk into a heavily fortified secret volcano headquarters “

Loved the main characters: Luke Parker is a great character and whilst making some flawed decisions is well meaning and a person that has many positive traits
As for Zack … I think a lot of people will relate to their relationship and I like how the story brought them closer.
I also liked the alliterative name of Lara Lee, which is typical of old comics – Lois Lane, Peter Parker, Bruce Banner etc.
And Serge…great comic relief and a very memorable character 

I also recognized several geeky references including ZARDOZ – yes the john borman sci flick based of THE WIZARD OF OZ with sean connery with a pony tale and a red nappy!
I’m sure no kid will get this or even some adults but I’m glad its there 

I hope someone picks up the film rights to this. Would be a brilliant British family film 
