SUPERHEROES ANONYMOUS by Lexie Dunne is one of those books that manages to be a combination of funny, serious, and entertaining all at once. It manages to take a ridiculous situation and plays it perfectly straight. Anyone who knows anything about me knows that I love superheroes and comedy. They're two great tastes that go together. The fact I also write humorous superhero fiction (THE SUPERVILLAINY SAGA) has absolutely no relationship to why I loved this book as well. Honest. *whistles*
BLACK CITY DRAGON is the third book of Richard Knaak's Black City series, which I've been enjoying since the first volume of BLACK CITY SAINT. It is an urban fantasy series that centers around Nick Medea, the 1920s incarnation of Saint George, who investigates the supernatual during the Great Depression while protecting the gateway to Fairyland. It's a unique series that I really love the quirky and oddball cast of. It reminds me a bit of the Dresden Files but Nick is a much more serious character who has lived millennia of tragedy.
THE SIDEKICKS INITIATIVE is one of the funniest books I've read in the past few years, let alone this year. It's definitely a book I would have put on my Top 20 Recommended Superhero books if I'd read it before now. It's a ridiculous world and all the more effective for its silliness. It has a general sense of humor similar to my THE RULES OF SUPERVILLAINY series but a bit more subdued (plus on the hero side of things).
