There are superheroes, and then there is Captain Nothing - ready to crack knuckles and break heads - no matter what the cost. Here are five truly unforgettable stories - three of them never seen or heard before - plus a behind-the-scenes afterword and a sneak preview of Apocalypse Nothing, Steve Vernon's upcoming Captain Nothing novella.
Each story is wild, brutal, honest, and surprisingly poignant. They include:
"The Indelible Skivvy Stains of Unbleached Regret"
"Some of Us Make It"
"Don't Bet on a Wet Horse"
"Saint Valentine's Massacre"
"The Tracks We Leave Behind"
Captain Nothing is back. And nothing is going to stop him.

I loved the first volume in this series, Nothing To lose. Captain Nothing has a mask sewed on to his face. He is as poor as they come and has very little in morals. A lot of people are going to think he is just nasty, but there is lots of intelligence behind the cruder then crude language and crude situations. If you are a fan of South Park you will like this, if you don't like South Park, don't waste your money.
The first vol was a lot better then this vol. All the stories in vol one were stories, this has stories that are not really stories, just Capt Nothing preaching about his life style. There was one story that I would give five stars to, that story has a kelpie in it. I had never heard of a kelpie before, but it is in my dictionary.
I suggest you get Vol one and then based on how well you like that, you decide on vol 2. This will be an underground cult classic some day.
