The Legion of Regrettable Super Villains: Oddball Criminals from Comic Book History (Book Review)
Quirk Books will release The Legion of Regrettable Super Villains on March 28th.
The book synopsis states:
Every hero needs a villain. But not all villains are dangerous—some are incompetent, comical, or just . . . weird. In his follow-up to The League of Regrettable Superheroes, author Jon Morris presents over a hundred of the strangest, most stupefying super villains to ever see print in comics. Meet D-list rogues like Brickbat (choice of weapon: poisonous bricks), Robbing Hood (steals from the poor to give to the rich), Swarm (a crook made of bees; Nazi bees), and many more. Drawing on the entire history of the medium, The Legion of Regrettable Supervillains affectionately and hilariously profiles oddball criminals from the history of comics.
The 256 page book has beautiful illustrations that coincide with the text of some of the most unusual villains to ever appear in comic book history. Some of the villains included are The Crime Merchant, The Dude and Robbing Hood. The book is very comical and has some intriguing information that you may never had known otherwise.
In the end, The Legion of Regrettable Super Villains is a great read for any diehard comic fan and gives you a slew of fun facts that you will love. To learn more, visit the official Quirk Books website.
