    Not your typical superhero story

    I admit, I love superheroes - and even the occasional villain - and this book, as different as it was, combined some of my favourite things about the genre. Panopolis is a city with a large population of superheroes and supervillains, with powers that range from the tragic to the absurd - and a larger population of ordinary people caught in the middle. Edward is an ordinary person, working in a bank when he has his first brush with a supervillain, the Mad Bombadier - who is also surprisingly normal off-the-job and makes a pretty good boyfriend, villain or not. But the number of supers in his life keeps increasing, with disastrous consequences. Hero or villain seems like an easy choice, but it's definitely not black and white. Underlying it all is the question of just why Panopolis is the way it is, and who really benefits from a city with so many super-powered people running around, causing all sorts of damage. Can't wait for the sequel.
