'Edison Rex Volume 1:' TPB Review By FBC Guest Contributor Tim Palmer!!!
Edison Rex is a criminal genius who has been fighting his arch-nemesis, the superhero Valiant, for decades. But, when Valiant is finally taken out of the picture, Edison realizes he must fill the void and become Earth’s new hero. So, along with his second-in-command, M’Alizz, he builds a team to do just that, though it turns out the public isn’t quite ready to trust Edison’s new leaf, much to his annoyance. I feel if I talk much more about the actual details of the story and the characters, I will be robbing you of the joy I experienced as Edison’s adventures unfolded before me without any insight into what was happening until it was happening, and I feel that is the most rewarding way to read this book. Just go into it blindly, and be ready for laughs, action, mysterious pasts, high-tech sci-fi, and a cast of insanely imaginative characters. And then, share it with your friends, or rather, tell them to go out and buy it themselves. You won’t be able to stop yourself from telling people about Edison Rex. It is simply that good, clever, and that much pure, unadulterated fun.
