Some super-crooks are incompetent, some are comical, and some are just . . . weird. In this follow-up to The League of Regrettable Superheroes, author Jon Morris presents over a hundred of the strangest, most stupefying supervillains ever to grace the pages of comics. Meet D-list desperados like Brickbat (choice of weapon: poisonous bricks), Swarm (a crook made of bees; Nazi bees), Robbing Hood (steals from the poor to give to the rich), plus a surprising number of law-breaking apes. Drawing on the entire history of the medium, The Legion of Regrettable Supervillains affectionately and hilariously profiles the oddeset oddballs in comic book history"--Back cover.

Terrible Old Games You've Probably Never Heard Of is a full-colour illustrated compendium of the most painfully bad games, based on Ashens' YouTube series of the same name. Everyone's heard of E.T. for the Atari 2600 and Superman for the Nintendo 64, but these are almost nothing next to the abject incompetence of Count Duckula 2 on the Amstrad CPC. There are people who seriously believe that Shaq Fu is the worst fighting game ever made, having never experienced Dangerous Streets on the Amiga. This book will blow their very soul apart. (Not a guarantee.) Terrible Old Games You've Probably Never Heard Of is meticulously researched and written, with the dry humour you'd expect from a man who has somehow made a living by sticking rubbish on a sofa and talking about it. Each entry is accompanied by a series of full-colour images from the games.

THE QUALITY COMPANION provides the first dedicated look at the prolific Golden Age publisher which spawned a treasure trove of beautiful art and classic characters, including the modern-day “Freedom Fighters”—UNCLE SAM, PHANTOM LADY, BLACK CONDOR, THE RAY, HUMAN BOMB, and DOLL MAN—as well as PLASTIC MAN, the BLACKHAWKS, and others now under the DC Comics umbrella. It provides the first-ever A-Z in-depth character profile of every Quality costumed hero, many of whom were superbly-produced but are now long-forgotten. It also reprints, in FULL-COLOR, several 1940s key stories of these characters from such rare 1940s collector’s items as SMASH COMICS, POLICE COMICS, NATIONAL COMICS, FEATURE COMICS, and CRACK COMICS, and features Golden Age art by the top artistic talents of that era, including LOU FINE, REED CRANDALL, JACK COLE, CHUCK CUIDERA, MATT BAKER, WILL EISNER, and others! There’s a contextual chronology, a unique oral history featuring commentary by many of the major Quality creators and their progeny, and studies that shed new light on Will Eisner's relationship with Quality! Plus: It covers the characters’ revival from the 1970s to today, including Plastic Man’s short-lived 1960s series, the classic Justice League/Justice Society crossover that introduced the Quality characters into the DC Comics universe, the Freedom Fighters’ own 1970s series, plus the Ray and Black Condor series of the 1990s, up through the current versions of the characters at DC. Creators who were instrumental in the revival of the characters from the 1970s to today are interviewed, including ROY THOMAS, LEN WEIN, JIMMY PALMIOTTI and others! There’s also a new cover drawn especially for this book by the late DICK GIORDANO! Written by Mike Kooiman with Jim Amash.

You're going to witness Public Domain superheroes like The Hand (yes, he's a giant hand), The Eye (you got it-he's a yuuuge eye), The Bouncer (this super-hero-in-a-skirt's power is bouncing)! There's Rainbow Boy (he sports a towering rainbow mohawk on his head), Boomerang (he defeats Nazi hordes and weaponry by throwing a little boomerang), Kangaroo Man (don't jump to conclusions-he's even weirder than you think-his fighting partner is a talking kangaroo!). You'll spit-take your milk reading the adventures of The Yellowjacket (he fights villains with bees), Madame Fatal (a cross dressing hero), and Phantasmo (who fights criminals barely wearing any clothes at all)! And this is just a small fraction of the Super Weird Heroes you'll experience in this must-have book-there are over 65 super weird heroes in all!
