Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Scott Brick gives a super performance…[He] smoothly handles the novel’s descriptive passages, loaded with historical and pop culture references to create an authentic sense of time and place. His characterizations are spot on…This is an audiobook not to be missed.” Publishers Weekly (starred review) 
“Tom De Haven’s realistic story explores how a nervous Superboy becomes a confident Superman in a very adult story…Brick’s trademark delivery, with sentences ending in upturned final syllables, works well in this story of a fumbling Clark Kent learning to shed his Smallville skin.” AudioFile
“This is a thrilling re-invention of a pop culture legend, and Brick reads with great comic book panache. He employs long conversational pauses for dramatic effect and makes pulp fiction a pure delight.” Kliatt
“De Haven…has added a sophisticated, well-rounded, and compelling addition to the Superman genre. In particular, he has an eye for authentic setting and character…proof that Superman’s appeal has withstood the test of time.” Bookmarks Magazine
