IF Anthology: Super Powers

IF Anthology: Super Powers




"IF" - the word itself has helped make the impossible become possible. Celebrating a new theme with every annual release, 2016's "IF" boasts over 40 creators coming together to answer the question: "what would the world REALLY be like, if people had super powers?"

In "Homemade Heroes" children dress up as their favorite heroes unbeknownst to them that those very heroes are also their parents; in "The Maddening Sound" a superhero is driven insane from cries of help when he loses the ability to control his super human hearing. These tales and many more, deal with themes that run the gamut of the (super) human condition.

“IF Anthology: Super Powers” is a unique collection of all sorts of comics from different authors and illustrators with the theme of super powers. It varies wildly in terms of style, content, and interpretation of the theme, which means there are some that will speak to you and some that will not. There are a lot of talented contributors overall and it’s an interesting collection. Each comic is relatively short, so it’s easy to pick up and put down and a very fast read overall. The artists are all really talented and I was impressed with the incredibly high quality of the art contained within the book. It’s tough to describe a book which has so much content contained within, but my favorites were Hamster Man, Sidekick, and Homemade Heroes. Some of the comics went over my head, but others were really fantastic- I imagine this is a pretty personal experience, so some people will like ones I did not and not like the ones I did. Hamster Man had me laughing out loud and Sidekick was emotionally brilliant (especially for something so short), and Homemade Heroes was really sweet! This book really has something for everyone, and I think comic lovers will be happy to add this to their collection. Please note that I received a copy through a goodreads giveaway. All opinions are my own.
