A couple of the stories were pretty good and there were some interesting concepts, but on the whole it felt like the authors were trying to condense novel length ideas into 20 pages or so. ( )

Anders' anthology about life in a world where superheroes exist is great! He chose both writers who have worked primarily in comics and those who have worked primarily in prose, and all were entertaining. For anyone who thinks comics are just silly kid stuff, read it and weep. ( )

Not bad, just not as comic-booky/superheroic as I expected. ( )

This was a great collection. Some excellent stories in here from fantastic fantasy, comic, romance, sci fi, horror, and fiction writers. Well worth picking it up. ( )

I have wanted to read this since it came out a few years ago. I'm not a comic book reader, but I have always loved superheroes. Hearing the theme of Superman (Christopher Reeves!) still gives me chills.

Unfortunately, this anthology feels terribly uneven in quality. Several of the stories feel overwhelming, as though I were dropped into completely established worlds and expected to already know who everyone is. The sheer numbers of characters became overwhelming, as though the authors felt they needed to explore every possible facet of superpowers while they had the chance.

There were several stand-out stories, however. The first and last tales in the book--"Cleansed and Set in Gold" by Matthew Sturges, and "A to Z in the Ultimate Big Company Superhero Universe (Villains Too) by Bill Willingham--were especially good, and the latter was especially engaging considering the cast of characters involved and the experimental ABC plot structure of the piece. Others, like "The Non-Event" by Mike Carey and "Vacuum Lad" by Stephen Baxter were thoroughly enjoyable.

I really wanted to like "Call Her Savage" by Marjorie M. Liu, but too many details of the fascinating world--steampunk alternate universe, where China settled the western United States--came in too late and I felt frustrated and lost.

This won't be a book I keep on my shelf, but it was worth reading for a few excellent stories. ( )
