Publisher's Summary

"Imagine you have the power to fly.
"Pretty awesome, right? Imagine you have the power to levitate or crush something the size of a Winnebago. Equally awesome. Now... here's the catch: having the power means you are bonded irreversibly to a smartass, sociopathic alien life form.
"Not so awesome.
"So, what would you do with all of that power? The way I figured it, I had one of two options: Option #1) Use it to commit crime or Option #2) Use it to fight crime. My name is Gabe Garrison and I chose Option #2.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I wouldn't say 'moved' me, but the entire book was very good. I loved the story concept.


Any additional comments?

Superheroes in Prose: Welcome To Prose is a fun, exciting and very engaging story. I loved the 'world' the writer created - it was perfectly sarcastic and ironic! On its own, this story is a great thing. Narrated by Bryan Reid, well, it's a must listen to. Bryan's narration style is perfect for this story. He brought a unique and very believable live to Gabe, M, Deathbot, all the Supers and every other character in Prose. I can easily see this story being made into a movie, however, it will not be as awesome unless Bryan narrated! Well done!

Like a Comic Book in Your Head

Going into this I had few expectations, but I came away quite impressed.

Aside from the slow first half, the story was excellent and came across exactly like a comic book in... well, prose. It was light, fun, and had a "stellar" ending.

One of the biggest surprises was the setting of the story (basically Chattanooga in all but name). As someone who lives in East Tennessee, I felt like the author had a good grasp on the setting and conveyed it rather well. I'm still trying to process that the area has the largest concentration of superheroes in the world, but maybe the author explains why in further installments.

The performance itself was also excellent. Bryan Reid has a good grasp on the way he tackles characters like M, and handles the various character interactions with grace.

In conclusion: fun story, great performance, and Tennessee awesomesauce. I'll definitely checking out the next installment.

4.5 out of 5 stars
