Archvillain Reviews Are In!

It’s still a couple of weeks yet before Archvillain officially hits bookshelves, but reviews from the usual sources have begun to trickle in. Here’s what I have so far…

  • “Kyle is a far cry from a sympathetic character… But he plays the antihero part with comic aplomb, and Lyga displays a nice grasp of superhero tropes (especially the gadgetry, with radiation- dampening antennas, brain-wave manipulators, and the ilk) that middle-grade boys should flock to with much enthusiasm.” — Booklist
  • “…the whole is good, snide fun.” — Kirkus
  • “Who is the good guy and who is really the archvillain? Tune in next time….” — School Library Journal
  • “Comic book fans in particular will appreciate this clever origin story, first in a new series…. Lyga (Goth Girl Rising) laces his story with ample humor, from the persnickety AI sidekick Kyle makes from his iPod to his failed Pants Laser prank. Readers will find plenty to ponder, from guessing Mike’s true motivations to debating whether Kyle is a hero–or a villain in the making.” — Publishers Weekly
