Críticas:

"It is gorgeous. It is splendid. It is funny as hell... He writes like an angel."

..."sharp, funny, and ultimately moving, with a plot that could be the R-rated version of the current hit movie The Incredibles... a cult novel that inspired a generation of comic book writers and anticipated books like The Fortress of Solitude and The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay."

.,."sharp, funny, and ultimately moving, with a plot that could be the R-rated version of the current hit movie The Incredibles... a cult novel that inspired a generation of comic book writers and anticipated books like The Fortress of Solitude and The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay."

"Superfolks is an irreverent look behind the mask of superheroes wrapped up in a cutting lampoon of late 70''s attitudes."

"Superfolks was the book that showed me you could do more with superheroes than adolescent power fantasies. Without Superfolks I doubt there''d have been an Astro City."

"What Robert Mayer has done, and done with real aplomb, is carry off a smart satire and a very funny novel while at the same time caring enough about his characters that the reader''s investment is respected and paid dividends. Without being derivative, it reminds me of early Vonnegut--Vonnegut through Cat''s Cradle--as well as the first couple of the Hitchhiker''s Guide. It''s always satisfying when an influential but neglected work--in any genre, in any field--is "rediscovered" and given its proper credit."

"What if you were a superhero going through a mid-life crisis? Your tights are in a bunch. You've lost your hair. Your powers have a mind of their own... You'll never look at superheroes the same way again!"
- Stan Lee, comic legend and creator of "Spiderman, ""X-Men, "and" The Fantastic Four"

Reseña del editor:

Before there was WATCHMEN, there was SUPERFOLKS....

David Brinkley used to be a hero, the greatest the world had ever seen--until he retired, got married, moved to the suburbs, and packed on a few extra pounds. Now all the heroes are dead or missing, and his beloved New York is on the edge of chaos. It's up to Brinkley to come to the rescue, but he's in the midst of a serious mid-life crisis--his superpowers are failing him.

At long last this classic satire that inspired comic books like Watchmen and Miracleman is back in print. It's a hilarious thriller that digs deep into the American psyche.
