it was amazing
bookshelves: funny, fantastic
Read in August, 2008

Chronicles the parallel adventures of the evil supergenius Dr. Impossible and the cyborg hero Fatale. As you might expect, the author's loving embrace of every superhero cliche is funnier if you are a big comic book nerd like myself. However, the writing is really sharp, and the story is a surprisingly poignant exploration of love, loss, power, loneliness, friendship, and the human yearning for intimacy. But with rayguns and doomsday devices.
