Kurzbeschreibung

What if Alzheimer's struck the World's Mightiest Hero? His daughter, heroic Hericane, finds out the hard way. Gripped by dementia, godlike Epitome tears apart a city, and no one can stop him. Will his madness destroy the entire world? Not if Hericane recruits the one big gun who stands a chance in Hell of stopping her father in his tracks. But the battle of the century between the super-charged titans might just kick-start the Apocalypse instead of stopping it. Because Epitome and his nemesis have much more in common than ultimate power. The shocking secret they share could turn history itself inside out. Don't miss this exciting tale by award-winning storyteller and DC Comics writer Robert T. Jeschonek, a master of unique and unexpected superhero adventures that really pack a punch.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Fantastic 16. Oktober 2011
Von M. Innes - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I blazed through this story. It has everything: action (her ultimate superhero dad's trying to kill her!), heart (but she can't kill her dad! And what happened to her beloved Mardi Gras?), humour, friendship, pathos, and a satisfying ending. I did not detect any of the spelling or grammar errors a previous review complained about. I heartily recommend this book.

2.0 von 5 Sternen A Disappointing Tale of Super Heroics Gone Wrong 18. Januar 2011
Von Luke Forney - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I had high hopes for this short story, the plot of which reminded me of Dark Horse's Will to Power in a way. That, combined with high priase for author Robert T. Jeschonek from authors I enjoy, led me to expect great things. So I was quite disappointed when I sat down to read Forced Retirement. The story begins with a string of terrible editing. I generally easily overlook spelling and grammer issues, but this one opened with a bucket load, including some very awkward sentence fragments that threw the flow right out of the story.

As the story ran along, the issues of grammer seemed to lessen, only to be met with other problems. The super heroes seem to have a limitless supply of new powers, which are mentioned just in time for them to be useful, leaving the story a seemingly endless string of deus ex machinae, the powers (and heroes) are given names too corny for simple camp or homage, and the writing goes in and out of a distinctly unpolished phase.

Everything finally seems to be reaching a much better stage, with better writing, more interesting character development, and less of the bizarre naming, when yet another deus ex machina rises to the occassion, throwing in new characters out of left field to wrap up the story, with an emotional ending that would have been stirring if it hadn't felt quite so contrived. All in all, I would give this one a pass. Readers of super hero fiction, both in prose and graphics, will find this one lacking.
