Comic book readers will get all the inside jokes, asides, and allusions in this novel. Everyone else will love it, too. Lyga, a lifelong comic fan, put all his arcane knowledge to work in a story about a geeky high school student out to impress his hero, comic book writer Brian Bendis, with his own creation. He's aided (sometimes) by a quirky and borderline psychotic girl from school, nicknamed "Goth Girl" for her fashion tendencies. Scott Brick does his usual zealous performance but sounds too old for most of the parts. No matter how talented he may be, Brick can't sound like a 16-year-old comic geek. A younger reader would be more convincing. M.S. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 07]
