Description


The oddest supervillains in comics history, in one amazing art-filled collection of overlooked crooked characters.

From the golden age to the modern graphic novel, comic book superheroes need villains to battle. This collection affectionately spotlights the most ridiculous, bizarre, and cringe-worthy ever published, from fandom favorites like MODOK and Egg Fu to forgotten weirdos like Brickbat (choice of weapon: poison bricks). Casual comics readers and diehard enthusiasts alike will relish the hilarious commentary by author Jon Morris and vintage art from obscure old comics.

About the Author


Jon Morris is a cartoonist, graphic designer, and author of The League of Regret-table Superheroes (Quirk, 2015). Since the late 1990s, he's operated the blog Gone & Forgotten, an irreverent look at the lowliest and most unfortunate stories and characters comic books have offered. In 2001 he was invited to participate on a superheroes-themed episode of the public radio program This American Life, which remains a popular and frequently rebroadcast episode.
