A while back I met Lee Newman on Twitter while talking with a couple of awesome guys about their podcast We Have Issues.  He’s a super positive guy with a great sense of humor.  I also found out he is a comic book writer, his most recent being Sissonne #1.  If you’re unfamiliar, here’s a premise:

Grand City: Home to heroes great and small! And then there’s Mark…

Mark Salzmann is a pretty average guy. He’s got a day job, a gym membership he rarely uses, a girlfriend, and a best buddy at work. But… Mark has a secret. In his downtime, he’s the good-hearted, well-intentioned, but not-so-well-respected crimefighter Sissonne!

What amazing powers could such a noble soul possess? How about unusually strong feet and a love for ballet dancing? Listen, the guy has passion and a purpose. Cut him some slack.

The concept of a guy who knows his own superhero limitations, who knows he can’t save the world, but can try and make his neighborhood a better place, is a very interesting concept to me, and not one you see very often.  I also liked the fact that this book does not take itself too seriously. 

In a world filled with dark, brooding books, Sissonne is the light that shines on the idea that you can have a book with a character that has a superpower, and not have it be entirely about their superpower.  Mark is just a guy that wants to make things better, and that’s something we all can relate to.

I enjoyed this book a lot, and I am very excited to see where Lee takes this series next.  If you want to check this book out for yourself and trust me you do, click the link and snag a copy for yourself!
