This is hilarious! A tongue-in-cheek superhero story centering on disillusioned 20-something Andrea, who finds herself as the administrative assistant at a company very much like Dilbert’s or The Office–except they lease superheroes to save the world from impending destruction. CUP (The Corporation for Ultrahuman Protection) involves a ridiculous mix of office politics and bureaucracy with their apocalyptic activities. There’s never a dull moment, but every crisis is delightfully underplayed. Also: the narrator is incredible! What a range of voices!
My rating: *****
Language: some, but minor
Violence: none (comic book style only)
Sexual content: present, and in one or two places gratuitous
Political content: some, but not too over the top
