A fun, funny, and affectionate look at the strangest superheroes to ever appear in comics. Featuring vintage comic book art, with equally colourful commentary from a die-hard comic book blogger and cartoonist, The League of Regrettable Superheroes is an alternative window into the superhero phenomenon. For every Batman or Spiderman who hit the big time with a blockbuster movie, there are countless failures, also-rans, and D-listers. Some were shockingly ill-conceived, some were hilariously off-target, and some were just mind-numbingly weird. And now, finally, these long-forgotten heroes will get their day in the sun. The League of Regrettable Superheroes presents one hundred of the strangest superheroes to ever see print, complete with backstories, vintage art, and colourful commentary from author Jon Morris. The League of Regrettable Superheroes celebrates the artistic train-wrecks that can only happen in the anything-goes world of comics, where a creative misfire can produce entertainingly bizarre results. Drawing on the entire history of the medium, the book includes characters that haven't seen the light of day in decades, pulling from defunct and long-forgotten comics publishers as well as DC and Marvel.
