SuperHeroRead #2: Steve McHugh, Hellequin Chronicles 1, “Crimes Against Magic”

Author:
Published:
April 27th 2012
Vampires:
No sparkles, still seem lame
Capes:
7 of 10
(6+1 for the bad-ass cover)
For the impatient:
A pretty good start to an interesting series. Written in first-person perspective, the world building has a lot of history to explore in the future, as does the main character. The writing is good for a first-try, and the protagonist is a cross between Fate and Wolverine, and yes, that is as scary as it sounds.

SuperHeroRead #1: Introduction (aka tl;dr)

Matter Eater Lad - Eating his way out of some major depression
Super hero, or super colonoscopy advertisement?

What make a hero “super”?   This is a serious question.  Is it a costume that makes a super hero?  Well, I’m sure Steve Austin would disagree.  Is it powers that make someone a super hero?  Tell you what – I’m not going to be the one to take that up with Bruce Wayne, Dick Grayson, Nick Fury, or Frank Castle.   Guns?  Again, I would refer you to the Goddamn Batman or Oliver Queen.  Or Clint Barton.  Do your parents have to be killed, or special, or special and killed?   There are plenty of heroes out there that still have more family members than grave stones.

What I’m getting at is that a super hero isn’t someone who wears something or uses a specific weapon, or has a “particular set of skills”...
