“A volume rich with historical anecdotes and informed commentary on every era of comics history.”—A.V. Club
“This compendium of short-lived superheroes (from actual comics) will thrill and amaze.”—Mental Floss

“This excellent book would be a worthy addition to any comic fan’s collection, be they the hardcore enthusiast or the more casual fan of the superhero genre.”—ComicBook.com
“It’s a great idea, executed with adroit prose, attractive design and painstaking production quality—full-page, full-color excerpts accompany each entry, turning what could have been a merely dutiful archive into a vibrant, living, expertly curated tour of a long-neglected and seriously goofy facet of American cultural history.”—Monkey See
