He began life as a gangster. He found a new path as an entertainer. He never knew how far he'd go to end up a hero.
In 1946, a chronal event ripped a hole in space-time, transporting ex-gangster turned entertainer "Big Daddy Cool" Johnny Dellarocca into the future. Now, tethered to this new time, Dellarocca can travel into his past to influence events to shape the present and his future.
Tales from the Flip-Side reveals the tale of one of the earliest adventures of Big Daddy Cool and the Bombshell Kittens leading up to that day in 1946. In the final days of WWII, Chicago Holo-Visor reporter Penny Lane has been kidnapped and is being held for ransom by Chicago's most infamous villain, Dr. Diablo. With Chicago's masked heroes on a secret mission in Europe, it's up to "Big Daddy Cool" and his super powered showgirls, The Bombshell Kittens, to stop Dr. Diablo and save Chicago's most beloved reporter from the machinations of the madman. However, behind the scenes, there's another threat - a greater evil lurking, pulling the strings and seeking universal domination.
Mobsters. Vampires. Nazis. Showgirls. Masked Vigilantes. High stakes adventure in an alternate Dieselpunk history! Tales from the Flip-Side by John Pyka is the debut volume in The World of Big Daddy Cool imprint from Pro Se Productions.

Lots of actions but not cohesive.
No, it didn't live up to all the hype from other reviewers.
I so wanted this book to be good. I am a big fan of epic-urban fantasy-steampunk-noir-alternative historical-fiction. A great book to read if you're into this kind of fiction is Hard Magic by Larry Correia. But this book Tales from the Flip-Side: The Adventures of Big Daddy Cool and the Bombshell Kittens, tried so hard but just fall flat. The way he describe things just didn't do it for me. For instance when he was describing a tough guy he wrote the word "tough" 3 times in 2 sentence.."Pirelli was the toughest tough to walk in Chicago. Tougher 'n me." And again in another paragraph he wrote "The women screamed primal screams of fear, and even the toughest tough guy panicked." Overall if you like fast action and a nonsense story line.. then this book is just that. But if you really want a good epic-urban fantasy-steampunk-noir-alternative historical-fiction I would pick up Hard Magic.
