Calamity Jon Morris has a book out called the League of Regrettable Heroes.
For every superhero hitting the big time with a blockbuster movie, there are countless failures, also-rans, and D-listers. The League of Regrettable Superheroes affectionately presents one hundred of the strangest superheroes ever to see print—from Atoman to Zippo—complete with backstories, vintage art, and colorful commentary.
Drawing on the entire history of the medium, the book celebrates characters that haven’t seen the light of day in decades, like Natureboy, Dr. Hormone, Thunder Bunny, and more. It’s a must-read for comics fans of all ages!
Morris, the creator of the fantastic comic Jeremy, is also responsible for the blog Gone and Forgotten which covers similar ground with the new book. I’ve never met Jon in person but online he’s always been a super fun, funny person. The book looks like it’s getting great reviews.
