Editorial Reviews

Stan Lee
“Without great supervillains, superheroes would have no one to fight but each other! King Oblivion, Ph.D., has performed a noble public service with The Supervillain Handbook and deserves the unbounded gratitude of every thinking comic book fan. Excelsior!”
Chris Roberson
“Contained within the pages of The Supervillain Handbook is an easy-to-follow blueprint for villainy and world domination. If it should fall into the wrong hands, it could threaten the very foundations of our society. Those of us who value decency and the rule of law must rush out and purchase every copy we find! Every copy we buy is a copy that won't end up in the clutches of some aspiring supervillain”
Matt Fraction
“At long last, everything YOU or your loved ones need to give themselves over wholeheartedly to the meaningful and lasting pursuit of villainy has been recorded in these pages. Had I this book in high school, you'd be wearing a grey uniform right now and your hair would be shaved into a, like, reverse-monk sort of thing I had figured out, as, if I had this book in high school, you would all be my minions and the world would be my playground. My loss is YOUR gain. Hail King Oblivion!”
Mark Waid
“A darkly clever book invaluable to the supervillain community. And I'm not just saying that because the author's hyperphotonic deathray is pointed at my loved ones.”
Jeff Parker
“This book is going to elevate otherwise common criminals like CEOs and hedge fund managers into full-on world menaces—oh wait, they already are. At least now they'll know how to rock a cape and boots though, so well done! Carry on.”
