A very hilarious parody of superheroes!
17 August 2001 | by (Newberry, SC) – See all my reviews

I saw both episodes, the normal episode and the roast, on a tape you can buy at many large comic conventions (so to everyone who wants a copy, that's how you can find one).

These things were flat out funny. They appeal to both the lifelong comics-lover and the person whose only experience with comics were the Batman movies.

The acting ranged from horrible (Charlie Callas) to the mediocre (Jeff Altman) to the great (William Schallert, Garrett Craig). The jokes were great.

Together, these are two very entertaining hours you won't forget. The tape should only cost around $20, and I highly recommend it!
