  1. Impressions of a Reader
    4 out of 5

    :

    “I enjoyed the stories in this anthology—after all, it contains a favorite tale of queer villainy, Hal Duncan’s “The Origin of the Fiend”—but can I just say how much I absolutely loved the introduction by Tom Cardamone? We don’t say enough about introductions and how they affect a reader (the “hook” they become), or what they mean to a collection or anthology.” — Read the whole review on Impressions of a Reader.

  2. Sequential Tart
    4 out of 5

    :

    “Overall, it’s a fantastic anthology. Exciting and entertaining stories of supervillains (and heroes) make for a fun read. It’s quality writing. The queer aspect isn’t as big as the book’s covers and introduction would make it out to be, but for several of the stories it adds elements to characters and plots.” Read Sheena McNeil’s review on Sequential Tart.

  3. Out in Print

    :

    “You’ll find no better book of queer supervillainy anywhere. I can hardly wait for the next volume. Please, Tom, tell me there’s another in the works!” Read Jerry Wheeler’s review on Out in Print.
