The Mirage

Editorial reviews

The Mirage

[T]his isn't just more Matt Ruff. This is Matt Ruff with the awesome turned up to 11. To 12. To 100.

Remember those 'What If' comics that Marvel used to put out? There was the one that asked what would have happened if the black costume had possessed Spider-Man, and another that posited what things would have been like if Dr. Doom was viewed as a hero. I couldn't help but be reminded of these while reading Matt Ruff's new novel 'The Mirage,' considering the story plays off that same 'what if' premise.
