“When they give you things, ask yourself why. When you’re grateful to them for providing the things you should have anyway, ask yourself why.” – Lady in Blue, rebel broadcast

I'm not much for superheroes, with the exception of the darker Batman stuff, some of the Spiderman movies, and, of course, The Watchmen. Oh, and Swamp Thing, and, er...okay, so I guess, like in any genre, the stuff that's done well I like a lot.
Soon I Will Be Invincible by Austin Grossman is a superhero/supervillain novel like no other. Grossman has invested a lot in the characters of Dr. Impossible and his superhero counterpart Fatale. The writing is crisp and clever and at times just wonderful. I'm enjoying the heck out of this novel, which will be released in June. Just a fun read with some depth.
