As he notes up front, he critiqued Land That I Love when that came out and got pretty rough on it. But he gave me a shot at redemption when he agreed to read an M2 ARC and, at least so far, he seems to be digging it. To wit:
Mighty Mighty is a much better fit for Bill’s brand of gonzo humor. Set in a world where superpowers are so common that heroes are mall cops, M2 is so far equal parts superhero sendup and homage. And some of the superpowers are a genuine hoot (I hope one day to be flicked aside by the World’s Most Manageable Hair). Think along the lines of Venture Bros. and Dr. Horrible and you’ll have an idea of what Bill is going for here.
I’d be flattered with lesser comparisons. When and if Chris decides to give M2 the full reviewer’s treatment, I’ll post a link here.
In the meantime, I continue to prepare for the launch party at Lunacon, to be shared by Dark Quest Books, the Garden State Speculative Fiction Writers, and my own posse at Rebel ePublishers! Rebel will be auctioning off a six-pack of titles specifically chosen to appeal to the Lunacon crowd, as well as a stack of Silver Age comic books like the ones that inspired the novel I’m launching that weekend.
Come on by and let me sign your copy of M2!
