Praise

“Every comic-book cliché in this witty, stunning debut is lovingly embraced, then turned inside out.” —Wired Magazine

“Imaginative and, at times, achingly real. . . . I mean it as the highest possible compliment when I say that it would make a damn good comic book.” —Dave Itzkoff, The New York Times Book Review

“A page-turning confrontation that’s pure super-team suspense.” —The Onion

“It’s safe to say, there’s nothing in popular fiction quite like it.” —Pittsburgh Tribune-Review

“This witty debut novel is sure to please fans of Lethem and Chabon and remind you that smart prose can be as vivid as any graphic concoction.” —Playboy

“[Grossman] fully embraces his inner geek; he gives us heroes and villains with a consciously sardonic eye.” —Cleveland Plain-Dealer

“It’s a hoot. . . . A delirious, often hilarious story that both satirizes and pays homage to superhero story cliches.” —Tampa Tribune

Soon I Will Be Invincible doesn’t so much play with the clichés of superhero comics as bathe in their pulpy froth.”—Austin American Statesman
