Item description for Planet Of The Capes by Larry Young...

A strange visitor from another planet, a dark and brooding super-patriot, a rampaging monster of destruction, and an interdimensional princess cross over from their world to ours. It's what happens when they find themselves in need of the sort of help that only super-heroes can provide; it's a stab at the presently ingrained super-hero archetypes without any of the intrigue of corporate intercession. Each one of the main characters represents one of the familiar super-hero archetypes, but they also represent certain factions of the comic book industry, too.

Promise Angels is dedicated to bringing you great books at great prices. Whether you read for entertainment, to learn, or for literacy - you will find what you want at!

Reviews - What do customers think about Planet Of The Capes?

Pointless and irritating  Feb 14, 2007
The story begins (as too many comics do these days) with thinly veiled versions of iconic heroes running around a world like our own. They're moderately interesting however just as we get to know them an accident transports them to another Earth without superheroes.

The thinly-veiled Superman character goes nuts, kills the others and dies at the hands of the Batman clone.

The end.

The back cover promises "Nobody learns anything. Everybody dies." Well at least they're honest.

Skip it.
