So, has anyone read or heard of these?
Will Supervillains Be on the Final?: Liberty Vocational Volume 1 - Naomi Novik,Yishan Li
The League of Regrettable Superheroes: Half-Baked Heroes from Comic Book History - Jon Morris
Empowered, Volume 4 - Adam Warren
The Legion of Regrettable Supervillains: Oddball Criminals from Comic Book History - Jon Morris

While trying to help with booklikes data on Temeraire series, these caught my eye on the publisher site.

 

Anyone read, checked into, heard about?  They sound quirky.

 

Will Supervillains Be on the Final? is by Temeraire's author, which makes me really curious.

 

The Legion of Regrettable Supervillains pulls from actual comic book history with "...Robbing Hood (steals from the poor to give to the rich), Swarm (a crook made of bees; Nazi bees), and many more..."

 

Empowered, "... And can she cope with the further problems posed by cross-dressing vigilantes, dying wishes from preteen wannabe supervillains, telepathic “booty calls,” a deeply depressed ninja, bedroom “cosplay” conflicts with her boyfriend, and even… Hummer® fu?..."

Review of "Empire of Ivory" (Temeraire, #4) by Naomi Novik
Empire of Ivory - Naomi Novik

Wow.

 

Oh, wow.

 

I did not see any of this coming.

 

Well, in hindsight, foundations were laid where nothing was out of character for the storyline, worldbuilding or characters.

 

But, wow!

 

I don't know how to even write a review of this one without spoilers.  I've been enjoying the books in this series; this one really blew me away.  

 

Unequivocal ★★★★★ with the next in series (Victory of Eagles ) to be read as soon as the book hangover from this fades and I read something else as a breather.

Reading progress update: 48%.
Empire of Ivory - Naomi Novik

Too engrossed to update much.  Still intense, but the below screenshot amused me -- the idea of Temeraire getting a dog (if that's what happens). 

 

Maybe just because of Flappy, the at-first-tiny dragon that the Jack Russell terrier in Angie Fox's Accidental Demon Slayer books stubbornly adopted as his very own pet:

Oh dear!  Opens quickly to dire straits and heads for even worse for the Prussian rescues followed by even more bad news.

Reading this for Booklikes-opoly 4th Roll
Empire of Ivory - Naomi Novik

Yes, I know it is not steampunk nor Victorian (alternate history if Napoleonic Wars if they had had dragons as air corps) -- but, it was tagged that way on goodreads.
