The League of Regrettable Superheroes is definitely a fun and informative read. Included in the book are vintage covers and pages from the comics that these superheroes were featured in. The art alone is wonderful, but the history of each includes debut dates, creator, and more on these superheroes that did not find success in print like Batman, Superman, and Spider Man. The book covers from 1938 to present and includes the likes of Brain Boy, NFL Superpro, the Legions of Super-Pets, and Squirrel Girl. This is a definite must have for a comics die hard, anyone interested casually in comics, graphic novels, or even pop culture history and trivia. I'm not even a comics lover, but I had fun reading about these superheroes and the real publication history that surrounds them.
