110 Comment Zephyr: Phase One

  1. When I saw Warren Hately promote Zephyr somewhere on the social media space, I wasn t sure what to expect of the book The cover image at first glance looked like a black and white version of the Joker, which I must admit was what drew me to it Also, he was giving Zephyr kindle edition away for free on , and well free stuff Zephyr.As a comic book reader, I was yet to read a novel type version of the same genre The beauty of comic books is in seeing the colourful characters come to life in vivid d [...]


  2. Well the concept of this book had me interested, but it was too much I only got about 1 3 of the way in Zephyr is incredibly foul mouthed and while I m in no way a prude and will curse like a sailor, I felt like it had no purpose in this book other than to just be there And the excessive celebrity name dropping was kind of the same It all really distracted me from the story itself, so I wasn t able to keep going.


  3. Zephyr is one of, if not the, best superhero books I ve read in the past five years It s not going to be for everyone but it is definitely up my alley and has a smart Transmetropolitan style feel which combines the absolutely insane with the mundane in a way that feels both subversive as well as cool The book stars Zephyr, the world s perhaps 3rd or 4th most famous heroes He s a big deal, don t get me wrong, and plugged into the world s celebrity culture However, he s jaded, cynical, and depress [...]


  4. This is an intriguing deconstruction of the superhero concept Zephyr isn t Tony Stark or Peter Parker a genius whose upbringing somehow prepares him to be a superhero He s the one in a million working class Everyman who does something stupid, but receives god like superpowers instead of getting killed In his our celebrity obsessed world, he s a rock star But he s also trying to manage a secret identity as a husband and father Much of the story illustrates the difficulty and absurdity of maintain [...]


  5. I chose this book as my Kindle Lending Library for this month because it looked interesting and I was definitely not disappointed In fact, I liked it so much I bought the next two in the series almost immediately Great writing, interesting characters Looking forward to reading much of Warren Hately s work


  6. Review copied from my blog ineedthatbookFinally a superhero story for grown ups There s the super powers, the villains, the slightly ambiguous in betweens I m having to really try to avoid spoilers in this review We get to see our hero Zephyr deal with the press and trying to keep his normal identity secret which isn t something comics really touch on too much Warren Hately also manages to include all the battles and plots that comic readers tend to love, there seems to be something going on aro [...]


  7. Set in Atlantic City in 2011, this is a fast moving, tongue in cheek, comic book world of superheroes flying through the skies, who, when they have time to relax, mix with other iconic figures or celebrities, such as movie stars, and even the Mafia They carry out their superhuman, publicity seeking exploits in the full glare of the television cameras, to the extent that they begin to feel the need for agents to promote their public images in the most effective ways possible The electronically ch [...]


  8. I would really like to rate this of a 3.5, and if it weren t for the fact that I think it needed a good proofread before publication, I d probably rate it higher It s a little all over the place plot wise, but I will say that Hately s book is one of the most ambitious I ve read in the superhero prose genre He s going for something literary in his pastiche, not just simple satire or straightforward adventure The main character, Zephyr, is definitely the familiar sort I d call the relatable assho [...]


  9. If you like your superheroes all grown up then this is for you If you like Alan Moore s Watchmen then you ll like this too, it s in a similar vein with hints of noir about it, wise cracking one liners, great action sequences and twisting plotIt s set in a world not unlike our own, in around Atlantic City, where superheroes and supervillians live amongst us and try to survive the constant media circus and one upmanship as they fight to keep in the spotlight Zephyr, our hero, has his own struggles [...]


  10. I picked this one up for free one of the times it was offered on I have mixed feelings on it I almost put it down in the first chapters, because Zephyr comes off as such an unlikable character and the general theme of the book seemed to be that superheroes were inherently jerks constantly indulging in excess It got better We find out that the constant grind of saving people with little compensation is a large part of why Zephyr is how he is, and he suffers in his personal life as well, estranged [...]


  11. A fun read, though the story meandered a bit and the typographical errors were distracting I d give the next book in the series a go.


  12. ABSOLUTE GEM I m not picky about editing It s the story I m after and Zephyr delivers and Tired or the same old goody two shoes or angst driven cry baby, then turn to Zephyr for a pleasant surprise Reads like a movie with tons of cool lines Zephyr s an unpolished gem of a read.


  13. Not what I was expecting and the I read the better it got It felt jumbled and rushed in spots, but overall it was a good read I love the idea of supers having celebrity status and hobnobbing with the elite It s definitely not your typical superhero story.


  14. I was very impressed with this first book in the series It s a challenge establishing a new universe in a series but Zephyr is an interesting real world superhero Looking forward to in the series.


  15. In an alternate reality super heroes are celebrities with private lives and everyday problems Zephyr tries to balance out fighting crime with his home life, neither are easy for him Enjoyable fast pace story with Interesting characters.


  16. I thoroughly enjoyed this one It added layers of real life to a world where super powered heroes and villains exist I especially liked the husband and father elements in the story.
