I had the privilege of being introduced to Mike Norton’s work when I read The Curse (due out in October). The work was so funny, over the top and featured a pug which made the story complete. When I had the opportunity to read his Battlepug, I knew I had to.
I was not disappointed. Mike Norton has a dark sense of humor. Battlepug is sexy, funny and full of action. No zombies in this one but it’s filled with man-eating oversized animals and a very evil Santa Claus.
I lied – I was disappointed. The book ended far too soon. I hate volumes. I want to devour a story and not have to stop and wait just as it’s getting good. Mike Norton is a name that will haunt me as I scour comic book stores. I don’t want your basic superhero – I want Battlepug.
