    1. Steve Vernon, The Adventures of Captain Nothing, vol. 1: Nothing to Lose (Nocturne Press, 2007)I've been trying to get my hands on something authored by Steve Vernon ever since I first heard about Long Horn, Big Shaggy, which sounds so awesome I'm not even going to attempt to recreate any description I've heard here. It, however, is very long out of print and very, very expensive when used copies turn up on . [ed. note: as-new copy still showing for $375, but there's now a Kindle edition, and I [...]

    2. Depending on where you live, this book can be awfully hard to find.

Then Toronto-based publisher Burning Effigy released a chapbook version which is still on the market.Now the good folks at Crossroad Press have released an e-book of this nasty little collection.What's it about?

    4. Three stories tied together by the least likely of superheroes; Captain Nothing. The first story was great and had a lot of things going for it including some great observations and descriptions courtesy of the titular character. The action flows, and the horror is there. The story is good. The other two stories not so much. Yes the action is there but it all seems different. Less holistic and authentic. All in all uneven, but the first story is worth it all.

    5. Captain Nothing isn't exactly a nihilist (like his name implies). But he accepts his circumstances with a shrug. He's a superhero. Big deal. That's why he stitched a leather mask on his face. That's the point, right? Unlike Batman, he's "always on duty." Full review here: superheronovels/2011/02/19
