Críticas:

" Austin Grossman has a superpower himself-- it's called writing. This book is a new, winning, smart and funny way of interpreting our world. It's terrific." -- Douglas Coupland, author of "JPod" and "Generation X"
" The realm of comic book heroes and villains gets a dose of realism in this whimsical debut from game design consultant Grossman.... However fantastical, the characters (including a 'genetic metahuman' and 'an elite fairy guard') are thoughtfully portrayed.... Grossman dabbles in a host of themes-- power, greed, fame, the pitfalls of ego-- in this engrossing page-turner, broadening the appeal of an already inviting scenario." -- "Publishers Weekly"
" Distilling the motley spectrum of doomed super-villains from half a century of comics into one impressive anti-hero, Austin Grossman's raucously madcap debut novel, "Soon I Will Be Invincible," races along like a roller coaster with its lug nuts loosened.... Light and adhesive as Spider-Man's web, Soon "I Will Be Invincible" is tailored for summer reading like a superhero's (or super-villain's) form-fitting costume." -- Thane Tierney," Bookpage"
"" "Riding the current wave of enthusiasm for superpowered mutants in film and fiction, Grossman's first novel peeks intimately inside the psyches of both superheroes and supervillains.... With remarkable ingenuity, [he] assembles an entire menagerie of superheroes and criminal masterminds completely from scratch. Costumed crime-fighter mavens naturally attracted to this latest rendition of superheroic derring-do may wind up itching to see it on the silver screen." -- "Booklist"
" In a worldwhere BlackBerry-carrying superheroes grace the cover of GQ, being a supervillain known as the " angriest dork in the world" isn't easy. A heartbreaking genius of staggering evil, Doctor Impossible avenges lost love, a lonely adolescence, and a plethora of foiled doomsday devices. (That fungus army seemed foolproof!) Every comic-book cliche in this witty, stunning debut is lovingly embraced, then turned inside out." -- Steven Leckart, "Wired"

Reseña del editor:

Doctor Impossible--evil genius, would-be world conqueror--languishes in prison. Shuffling through the cafeteria line with ordinary criminals, he wonders if the smartest man in the world has done the smartest thing he could with his life. After all, he's lost every battle he's ever fought. But this prison won't hold him forever.
Fatale--half woman, half high-tech warrior--used to be an unemployed cyborg. Now, she's a rookie member of the world's most famous super-team, the Champions. But being a superhero is not all flying cars and planets in peril--she learns that in the locker rooms and dive bars of superherodom, the men and women (even mutants) behind the masks are as human as anyone.
Soon I Will Be Invincible is a wildly entertaining first novel, brimming with attitude and humor--an emotionally resonant look at good and evil, love and loss, power and glory.
