Closeout Price! Our Highest Recommendation. By Fletcher Hanks, Jerry Siegel, Joe Shuster, John Buscema, George Tuska et al. Edited by Craig Yoe. The first superhero book from Yoe Books! 320 pages, thick as a brick, bargained-priced, filled with tons of rare, full-color, never-before-reprinted complete stories--plus Craig Yoe's own synopsis of each one's strange career or lack thereof! Here's The Hand (yes, he’s a giant hand), The Eye (you got it―he’s a huuuge eye), The Bouncer (a super-hero-in-a-skirt), Rainbow Boy, Boomerang (he defeats Nazi hordes with a little boomerang), Kangaroo Man (he’s even weirder than you think―his fighting partner is a talking kangaroo!). Note: These copies have bumps to corners.

The first superhero book from Yoe Books! 320 pages, thick as a brick, bargained-priced, filled with tons of rare, full-color, never-before-reprinted complete stories--plus Craig Yoe's own synopsis of each one's strange career or lack thereof! Here's The Hand (yes, he’s a giant hand), The Eye (you got it―he’s a huuuge eye), The Bouncer (a super-hero-in-a-skirt), Rainbow Boy, Boomerang (he defeats Nazi hordes with a little boomerang), Kangaroo Man (he’s even weirder than you think―his fighting partner is a talking kangaroo!).

Then there's The Yellowjacket (he fights villains with bees), Madame Fatal (a cross dressing hero), and Phantasmo (who fights criminals barely wearing any clothes at all)!

HEROES!--Super Weird Heroes will make you laugh, cry, and be immensely entertained! The originals of these comics could cost you thousands of dollars on the collector’s market!

It’s loaded with beyond-belief “What th’?!?!” moments! Wait till you tell your friends what you discover in its pages!

There are over 65 super weird heroes here! Yoe provides an entertaining introduction about his own youth as a frustrated comics fan (Dad helped him burn his Marvels so he could then be "a man"). And better yet, you don't get just stories with no background--Craig has carefully researched every hero here, and he tells us about their long, short or in-between career as a first or second fiddle feature in comics of the 1940s. Gay heroes, suggestive situations, just plain bizarre concepts, he covers the field. And this is just the first of at least two collections on the subject!

Super Weird Heroes is edited by the Eisner winner Craig Yoe who Vice Magaizine called, “The Indiana Jones of nerd-perv artifacts!"
