Synopsis

Lean into your wicked side in this full-color graphic novel series about a middle-school super villain (in training) who must choose between saving his town and doing the most horrific thing of all–teaming up with the good guys.

Hi! My name is Steve L. McEvil, and I am THE GREATEST SUPERVILLAIN IN THE WORLD! Or…I will be. It’s hard to take over the planet when you still have a bedtime.

Right now, my grandpa Tiberius McEvil is teaching me how to pull off my nefarious schemes. Though lately someone has been doing the job for me. These weird stones have appeared in town. Professor Stinger won’t stop droning on about wormholes. And no one is more villainous than my new neighbor Vic Turry. That guy is just so…NICE! Barf. Even Sierra, who rarely looks up from her geology books, is impressed by his good guy routine. But I’ll show them all. No one can outsmart Steve L. McEvil! (Yeah, yeah, I know it rhymes.)


Review

Thank you to TBR and Beyond Tours and author Lucas Turnbloom for providing me with a complimentary copy of Steve L. McEvil in exchange for an honest review. The rest of the tour schedule can be found below!

Middle-Grade graphic novels are still somewhat new to me, however, I can say that this book definitely boosted my mood. I loved the art style and I loved the expressions that Turnbloom managed to convey from each of the characters. It definitely reminded me of when I used to watch Dexter’s Laboratory growing up on Boomerang and the Captain Underpants novels. This was truly a very funny and entertaining read and I will definitely continue to read Turnbloom’s work.
