Novel Spotlight: Tales of the Dim Knight by Adam and Andrea Graham


STORYLINE: 

"Some relationships are built on trust and mutual respect, others are built on using someone as a pawn in a game of global domination." Mild-mannered janitor and superhero fanboy Dave Johnson gets all his wishes at once when an alien symbiote gives him supernatural powers. But what's he to do with them? Follow the zany adventures of the clueless custodian as he fights crime and corruption while trying to keep his family together and avoid being sued for copyright infringement...

MY THOUGHTS:

 There's something that I discovered while reading Tales of the Dim Knight—certain books have to be approached with different expectations.

For Dim Knight, you shouldn't expect something serious. It's a parody on superheroes, and that makes it goofy and wacky with a light message. Think The Incredibles in book form, enjoying the superhero genre while poking fun at the tropes.

I thought the characterization was consistent and the writing simplistic and well done. It was a fun, family-friendly book that would be great for teens who like superheroes.

Rating: four stars
