"[Kochalka] brings the joy back to comics.” -- Frank Miller, creator of Sin City and 300
"Easily my favorite comic James Kochalka’s ever done.” -- Brandon Boyer, BoingBoing Offworld
"Sure to solve the oncoming energy crisis, Kochalka is an unrelenting force the world will find hard to deplete. ... SuperF*ckers, his unexpectedly adorably profane comic, refuses to leave any stick in the mud in a bad mood." -- Hi-Fructose
"Endearingly infantile... surprisingly poignant." -- The AV Club
"Probably the perfect superhero book, as it appeals as much to people who love superhero books as it does to people who absolutely hate them." -- J. Caleb Mozzocco, Las Vegas Weekly
"Secretly James Kochalka’s best comic? Nah, that’s not a secret." -- Joe "Jog" McCulloch, Comics Comics
SuperF*ckers collects all four fan-favorite issues of James Kochalka’s beloved series, plus the all-new Jack Krak one-shot! Foul-mouthed, filthy-minded, and completely oblivious, these young “heroes” do everything BUT fight crime – they’re too busy getting high, hazing the new kids, playing video games, scheming to be team leader, and designing new costumes.
A hilariously rude look at what super-powered teens would really be like, presented with Kochalka’s signature sweetness and charm, SuperF*ckers is an over-the-top super-sitcom with its mind in the gutter and its heart on its sleeve.
A superhero team book like no other, Kochalka's gleefully disjointed romp explores what a group of young, confused people with superpowers would probably actually do, which is to say what the ones without superpowers tend to do: spend all their time playing cruel social-hierarchy games, indulging in awkward sexual experimentation, one-upping each other's potty-mouths, and figuring out creative ways to get high. Naturally, Kochalka draws it in his standard ultra-cute, clear-line style. Even his lines are mostly in a palette of simple, flat colors, giving the artwork a sense of candy-cane playfulness. The bulk of this collection was originally published as issues 271, 273, 277, and 279 of an "ongoing series" (no other issues exist, of course, but it's a hilarious excuse for Kochalka to dispense with pesky necessities like exposition and resolving cliffhangers); they're accompanied here by a solo story about the sycophantically adored and wildly irritable hero Jack Krack. There's a disarming sweetness about the whole thing, despite the satirical over-the-top vulgarity and the patina of angst and nastiness; even the occasional explosions of violence are adorable and briskly healed up.
