Publisher's Summary

Exploding from the pages of Horror, Humor, and Heroes, Volume One - it’s the full length adventures of the one and only Mechani-Cal! So grab your battlesuit and prepare to get a little nasty.

"Being a supervillain means never having to say you’re sorry - unless it’s to the judge or the parole board. Even then, you don’t really have to. It’s not like it’s going to change the outcome or anything." Those are the words of Calvin Matthew Stringel, better known as Mechani-Cal. He’s a down-on-his-luck armored villain. Follow his exploits as he gets swept up in a world domination scheme gone wrong and ends up working for these weak willed, mercy loving heroes. Immerse yourself in epic battles and see what it’s like to be an outsider looking in at a world that few have ever experienced. Climb into Cal’s battlesuit and join him on his journey. Will he avoid selling out his principles for a paycheck and a pardon? Can he resist the camaraderie of being on a super team? Does he fall prey to the ample charms of the beautiful Olympian Aphrodite? How will he survive the jealous schemes of Ultraweapon, who wears armor so powerful it makes Cal’s look like a museum piece?

See the world of “righteous do-gooders” through the eyes of someone who doesn’t particularly care for them. Revel in his sarcasm and hang on for one wild ride! Just remember: losing an argument with a group of rioters isn’t a good excuse to start lobbing tear gas indiscriminately at them. You’ve only got so many rounds and it’s going to be a long day, so make sure you get as many as possible with each one.

    "Enjoyable. Original view point."
    Where does Confessions of a D-List Supervillain rank among all the audiobooks you???ve listened to so far?

    Nice to see the other side of the story. Gets slow in the middle and a bit predicable but otherwise a good read.

    "Entertaining for what it is."

    An entertaining book if at times a bit bland and shallow. The main narrator was fine, but the epilogue narrator sounded as if she was narrating a childern's book.

    "A "blast" to read"

    I started this book very skeptical that I would enjoy it. I was excited about the concept, but doubted it was going to be executed correctly. I openly admit I was wrong. This book delivered, and I was laughing and intrigued within minutes of starting my audiobook.

    I enjoyed the themes explored in this book. It exposed the superhuman for who they were... human. I found this text to be somewhat reminiscent of Watchmen. It was not as dark as the aforementioned, however it did showcase the world of Heroes and Villains, as more than just black and white.

    I listened to this while on vacation. I like the sarcastic voice of the villain. I laughed out loud a few times. Solid purchase.

    "Perfection."

    A fantastic superhero book. Perfection when combined with its predecessor - humor, sex, brain-controlling superbugs. This book has it all.

    Story
    "Superhero fiction at its best!"
    What did you love best about Confessions of a D-List Supervillain?

    Everything! The story is great, very well written/narrated and it has a main character that you find yourself cheering from the first line.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The way it's told. Happy moments and sad moments mix perfectly. It is one of the best pieces of superhero fiction I've read.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I could not choose! I love the first sentence, but I don't want to spoil anything.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Some of the things that the main character has to endure are really tough. I find myself feeling sad listening to some of the scenes in the book.

    "Awesome"

    I enjoyed it, like others have said its a different take on the superhero genre. Not to heavy, action packed and some humorous moments too.

    "Great til the second narrator."

    Don't want to spoil anything but there are two narrators and one is much better than the other. The story is otherwise fun and about what' you would expect with a few cool twists.
