KIRKUS REVIEW

Redolent with olfactory humor, this heavily illustrated series kickoff from a TV cartoonist introduces an array of oddly abled superheroes, then pits them against a pair of gassy opponents. Having eluded the deadly Hyper Bad Breath Rays of Queen Smellina the Shrieking Stinkbug, young Amazing Techno Dude and his elderly guardian Bodacious Backwards Woman pack her off to jail (or so they think). They then take on a parade of boarders including the likes of Super Vacation Man (who can Time Share his way to being two places at once, every third weekend), the Impossibly Tough Two-Headed Infant, SuperSass CuteGirl and (shades of Captain Underpants) Mighty Tighty Whitey. Though Dude finds the quarrelsome new arrivals major pains to live with, they’re there in the clutch after Queen Smellina escapes and acquires a sidekick in the alienated Fabian the Fabulous Flatulent Fellow. Comparable to the late, unlamented “Barf-O-Rama” series in style, appeal and, probably, lifespan. (Fantasy. 9-11)
