    The Schlub #1 may have one of the world's worst superheroes, but it's one of the best comics I've read this year. Stegman proves to be just as capable of a writer as he is an artist, especially when backed with top-tier talent, and it's proof that Vanish wasn't the only great comic to come out of KLC Press.

    COMICON - Tom Smithyman Aug 9, 2023

    When the worst person in the world becomes a superhero, hilarity ensues. The problem is this story is a familiar one and doesn't blaze a new path – at least not yet. Add to that page after page of overloaded panels and you get a schlub-overload. Read Full Review
