Tales of the Dim Knight

Tales of the Dim Knight
by Adam and Andrea Graham

About the Book:
Mild-mannered janitor and superhero fanboy Dave Johnson gets all his wishes at once when a symbiotic alien gives him supernatural powers. But what's he to do with them? Follow his laugh-a-minute progress as he fights crime and corruption while trying to keep his family together and avoid being sued for copyright infringement.

My Review
If you are a fan of the superhero genre and comic books, Tales of the Dim Knight is for you. Having never read comic books, I am certain there are in-jokes that flew right over my head, but most everyone knows what Superman, Batman, and Spider-Man are all about. You don't have to know as much about classic superheroes as Dave Johnson (the book's main character) does, but if you do, I'm sure it only enhances your enjoyment of this tale. It's part tongue-in-cheek, part tribute, and all-original story with a Christian message to boot.

While not written specifically for the YA market, Adam and Andrea have an excellent article which can help you decide if Tales of the Dim Knight is a good choice for your younger reader. Personally, I wouldn't hesitate to let my 16-year-old read it.

Watch the Book Trailer.

Purchase Tales of the Dim Knight from Amazon,
