Review: EARTHMAN JACK VS. THE GHOST PLANET
Whether or not we believe in the possibility of alien invasion (extraterrestrial, that is, not cross-border), who among us could imagine Earth 's only hope being a sloppy, "no-'count," bullied, low-achieving high school boy? Author Matthew Kadish tried that idea on for size, and it worked-very well. Although I found the prologue a little dry, the story, from the entrance of our protagonist (and Earth 's Defender) Jack, rockets along (pun intended) and I.totally enjoyed it.
