A laugh out loud comedy book proving that every superhero needs a supervillain. It's Kick-Ass meets The Incredibles. Ever wondered what it takes to be a real supervillain? Vordak the Incomprehensible has one aim in life - to rule the world. He's big, he's bad and he's brash. Writing his first published title, Vordak shows us how to grow into a villain of epic proportions. Whether it is planning strategies to take over the government, finding a new secret lair or choosing a suitably evil costume, Vordak will be there with plenty of hints and tips. In Scott Seegert's off the wall book for children, there's enough fun to fill a secret, hollowed out volcano lair. Vordak the Incomprehensible is an arch villain with strong views on superheroes and society, and has an overwhelming urge to gain world domination. It's a biography like on other.
Publishers Weekly, 2010-08-02 Writing as the ultra-evil Vordak the Incomprehensible, Seegert offers a comical step-by-step guide to world domination. With a hyperbolically inflated self-image and no shortage of bathroom humor, Vordak guides readers through such topics as how to choose a costume ("the more flamboyant the better"), build a lair, and acquire enough minions to build a top-notch evil organization ("At times they can be difficult to control, but at their best they can be a relentless plague upon civilization"), all of which are paired with Martin's appropriately cartoonish artwork. Seegert gives Vordak a voice so magnetic and absurd that readers, especially young male ones, are going to soak up his warped wisdom like a sponge and circulate it at recess, even as Vordak insults them with admonishments like, "You are just a sniveling, whiny little goober, after all." No one is going to rule the world after reading Vordak's farcical directives, but readers will have a grand time turning pages to see what outlandish thing he'll say or suggest next, while perfecting their own villainous laughs. Muahahahaha! Ages 8-up. (Aug.) Copyright 2010 Reed Business Information.
