    1. Pure pulp adventure that fits right in the comic book mold Tells the crazy steampunk ish tale of a Manhattan that s fresh off a second civil war against futureheads and their quasi McCarthyite forces Now Manhattan resides in the United Socialist States of America and superheroes like Doc Thunder and his thousand year old lover Maya and his sidekick Monk Olsen the Gorilla Reporter battle the Blood Spider, the evil Lars Larson and a still alive Hitler s forces Hitler, naturally, still lives in the [...]

    2. This really is one of the most perfect pulp novels I can imagine Superheroes, supervillains, alternative reality, steampunky Victoriana socialist America there s nothing here that you won t love Ewing pays homage to the graphic novel genre by playing with names and characters that comic books fans will find familiar, and the Lady Ga Ga riff alone is worth the entire read Most importantly, Ewing rides that fine line between darkness and humor, so that even while horrifying events take place, he s [...]

    3. This was a fun one chocked full of awesome characters and grand adventures I would recommend it but who am I Reads like a classic pulp does jump around a bit but kept my attention to the end At first I thought a bit cheesy then I remembered how much I like cheese Like I said who am I to judge Just read it and enjoy it as much as I did.

    4. Kudos Al Ewing The second El Sombra adventure in the world of PAX BRITANNIA is an entertaining hell of a ride If there is one thing to complain it is the shortness with just 238 pages I want El Sombra.Please Mr Al Ewing please sharpen your pen and write about El Sombra.Full review in progress

    5. Fun little book with fast pacing, tons of actions and references to pop culture, some which I feel were unneeded, such as the corny and hilarious scene with the Bad Romance lyrics.Gods of Manhattan reads like a comic book and through the whole endeavor I kept thinking it would be a neat comic, emphasized by the constant parallels to Marvel comics.The plot starts by pulling you little by little to this steam punk world and then it swallows you whole as the story suddenly hits mach 3 and never sto [...]

    6. The first book of the series was OK without being great, sort of an alternative superhero but the second I just gave up after a while, just seemed a pointless rambling

    7. Al Ewing knows his stuff This pulp filled adventure fest is delightfully evocative of The Avenger, Doc Savage, the original Superman Comics, and the Shadow The prose is sometimes a bit overblown, but I suspect that is deliberate as Ewing makes mad and passionate love to comic book and pulp conventions in a rocketing novel full of twists and turns and reveals and battles A thoroughly fun read.Each chapter is titled like its a full blown adventure story and many of them are The characters all echo [...]

    8. Al Ewing, perhaps the most ridiculously under appreciated genre novelist of our time, delivers yet another fine book Ewing is always full of surprises, and I certainly did not expect the second El Sombra novel to be a romp filled with pulp fiction comic book in jokes and parodies Ewing resurrects Doc Savage, Ayesha, Denny Colt aka The Spirit and other old literary acquaintances, here very thinly disguised by slightly modified names and attributes somewhat in the manner of Kim Newman, both analyz [...]

    9. You ask Ewing to give you a steampunk, he gives you a fever dream of old pulps and Golden Silver Age superheroes and progressive humanism and he ll even find room for steampunk And then he ll ask what do subcultures like hiphop and punk look like in this timeline Do they exist What s Andy Warhol up to It s barely controlled madness and humour, and writing that will take a Golden Age Superman and tell you exactly how impressiv it d be to look at even that less powerful version Also, guys kill Naz [...]

    10. Didn t read book 1 of this but it sounds like from the first 10 pages or so that won t matter much I picked this up because it looked different from most of the stuff I ve read and it was It s basically a book about superheroes in a kind of steampunk ish alternate past The main character, Doc Thunder, is obviously a homage to Superman just smarter and with less powers.The story has a lot too many I think of flashbacks but I think this is done as a device to make the whole thing pulpy episodic T [...]

    11. Wow This may be the perfect pulp superhero novel It s able to stand alone for those who don t want to read the other Pax Britannia novels and you can enjoy it without even having read the El Sombre novel also by Ewing I was hooked within pages and found it served up an odd fair that delivered a world full of familiar tropes but used them to tell a solid, entertaining story It was often like a puzzle box, deliberately pulling at threads familiar from a variety of comics but never tedious or outla [...]

    12. If you love the hero pulps of old this is a love letter to that begone era There are some imaginative deep cuts as you follow pastiches of Doc Savage and the Shadow through the Pax Brittania steam punk alternate history If anything the steam punk elements are the stories main weakness They feel like after thoughts to the setting of the story All in all, I liked the story a great deal This is the sequel to the El Sombra novel by Al Ewing Luckily, that was not a barrier of entry for getting into t [...]

    13. The biggest problem with this book was that it uses source material that has been rehashed too many times Both Planetary and Tom Strong use analogs of the same characters and in many ways do better jobs of making their iterations interesting Ewing does a decent job with his characters though and the setting is set in an interesting piece if alternate history that I enjoyed While I believe the setting comes from the series though and not the author, he does lend it an interesting style.

    14. It was a fun read super heros in a diesel steampunk setting If it were the usual super hero setting I don t think I d have cared for it as much, but the characters actually jest at the typical traits of super hero villains, such as the villain gloating after catching the hero, or the fact that most heros are merely vigilantes.

    15. Deliberately trashy pulp sci fi that this is intended to be, in some respects it fails to live up to its own promise.It s churlish to demand depth from the characters but I was hoping for interest.The same goes for the plot It s all okay, but nothing shocking or over the top.It s a time passer But nothing .

    16. I admit, I did not really enjoy El Sombra, but really like the Quicksilver installments of Pax Britannia I read this one just to complete the series so far and did not expect much from it but I was pleasantly surprised I enjoyed the vigilante vs vigilante vs superhero plot.

    17. steam punk at its finest the pax Britannia series just keeps getting better that said I didn t enjoy it as much as el sombre

    18. I really enjoyed this book from Al Ewing He borrows a bit from pulp heroes like doc savage and the shadow and then twists them into a fantastic alternate history of america and the world.
