Meet Edger (Ed-jer), a twenty-six-year-old gadget retail dork destined to become the world’s first superhero!
His superpower: the ability to channel the Collective Unconscious, a psychic network connecting the living and the dead. In his arsenal are the skills of Bruce Lee, the strength of Samson, the wisdom of the ages…and the dancing chops of Michael Jackson—including that one twisty foot move, crotch grab, and fedora tilt.
But there’s a catch…
Like every psychic superpower to get administered through a hypodermic needle, this one comes with a prick. Someone seems to have misplaced the booster necessary for stabilizing his superpower. Without it, Edger has three days before his brain turns to pudding.
Join our Dork of Destiny as he overcomes the world’s greatest butt, two rival Cluck-n-Pray gangs, an evil cow, a Green Bay Defensive Tackle, rifle-toting assassins—and a pair of stoners who inadvertently create the world’s first supervillain after a wild night on Twitter!
I think it has been awhile since I’ve read a bit quite like this…actually, maybe never. I don’t remember laughing so hard that I was crying. When I saw the cover, I knew that I wanted to read it because it looked fun and I love superheros. I knew a nerdy superhero sounded hilarious. Trust me, it was.
Edger worked fixing computers at a retail store. His boss’ bosses bosses boss was someone he want to college with and wants to turn him into a superhero. After that is a heck of an adventure and there are COWS! I love Edger, he is a fun character and I hope he is written again.
This book IS NOT for kids. I suggest if for older teens and adults. I’m going to get a paperback for my teenage daughter because like me, she enjoys this kind of sense of humor.
