Keeping It Balanced
Being a superhero is tough. Saving the world while raising a family is tougher. That’s what Dave Johnson finds out when he encounters an alien symbiote in an FBI warehouse. Now he has to balance his real job as a janitor, his new life as a superhero, his kids, and his wife while battling gang lords, supervillains, mad scientists, terrorists, and – worst of all – a divorce lawyer.
Tales of a Dim Knight is a witty adventure with plenty of amusing references to comic books. Interspersed with the laughs is a story about finding out what really matters in life.
I enjoyed the story from cover to cover. The characters had believable personalities, and even the Bad Guy had a character arc. Although Powerhouse had a heavy list of superpowers, he couldn’t just walk over the enemies he faced. The plot moved along at a good speed.
Dave faces his greatest dreams and his worst nightmares and comes out a better man in the end.
