So Quirk Books has three of these. League of Regrettable Superheroes, League of Regrettable Sidekicks (which I think just dropped), and Legion of Regrettable Super Villains. I desperately need to pick up the other two. Jon Morris writes in a lightly sarcastic style, that conveys basic information about the super villain, their main arch-nemesis, where… Read More Geek Girls Rule! #586 – Review: Legion of Regrettable Super Villains
For years I got Rip Torn and Rip Taylor confused, because Rip Torn was a relatively serious actor with a ridiculous stage name, and Rip Taylor was a ridiculous actor/comedian with a relatively normal name.
