One of the funniest books ever. Pass this book around the car to be read aloud on a long road trip for best results."Beaten up by Midgets!!""Blubber On!!"
If you ever thought Superheros were cool, but never understood the whole underwear on the outside bit, do I have a book for you! I've been meaning to post about this for a while, but since I just reread it, the memory is sufficiently jogged for once."How to be a Superhero"by Mark Leigh and Mike LepineISBN 1-56163-051-9A very funny look at the hows and whys of being a Superhero. It's a little older (Published in 1992) but it still always brings a smile to my lips.A brief exerpt from the "Going in [...]
One of the funniest books I have ever read. Irreverent, sometimes filthy, this book goes over every aspect of the super-hero genre and mines it for great comedic material that both thrives on how silly super hero tropes can be while appealing to everything that you love about the genre. Any book that advises that being hit by an alien beam from space is not the most proactive way to get super powers and instead advises trying to get your parents killed by criminals to inspire you into becoming a [...]
Gut wrenchingly funny. If you're not a comic book fan, it might not come off as so humorous.Almost every page had me in tears. Out of print, but well worth tracking down.
One of the funniest books ever written. Tears ran down my face before taking this to the checkout counter at Barnes and Noble.
Very funny guide on How To Be A Superhero.Although some of the humour has dated.
Long out of print, but worth tracking down if you can. It's a really, really silly book that explores some of the challenges you'll face as a superhero, such as the hassle of acquiring your own boy wonder, the dangers of being able to hear the thoughts of others, and the downside of having to wear spandex.
Out of print but well worth chasing down if you ever read comic books and loved superheroes. A hilarious guide to becoming a superhero covering everything from choosing your name and costume to getting your own comic sponsorship and joining a team. Full of one liners, you will want to read out the entire book between tears of laughter
Take the superhero cliches and conventions and turn them into a hilarious how to book. Add Steve Dillion's politically incorrect art work for flavor.
Not quite as effective as using the Spider man and Batman Handbooks, but it can work as a good model to look at organization of how-tow pieces.
Read this back in high school. Very very funny. Illustration is by the same guy who drew all of Garth Ennis' "Preacher."
The funniest book ever. It's out of print, but worth paying up to twenty bucks on E-Bay. Wear diapers while reading."Tits out for Captain Power!!!"
A fun fun fun bookd not for the kids. If you buy this looking for anything close to serious, please take another look at the cover, then sit back and enjoy some hilarious silly fun.
One of the most hilarious superhero spoof books I've read. I think it's out of print, which is a shame.
