Comic - Not So Super
Daniel Douglas lives in a world where the mild-mannered receive little attention. Each day constantly speeds by and all he sees in his immediate future in an eternal state of bachelorhood and entrapment by the company’s smart phone.
One day his life takes a weird turn when he wakes up with a random assortment of powers. The list of powers grows and Daniel never knows when they appear or disappear. None of the powers are particularly helpful to him and they find ways to inconvenience him at every turn. As a matter of fact, we see his life spiral into sheer chaos as he maneuvers in our unforgiving, modern world as he tries to figure out what made him this way.

What people are saying
Nyemb and Hunter have created an indie gem here on this book, and their combination of quietly funny writing and cutesy art style makes this book stand out.

Were you looking for Dilbert meets Scott Pilgrim but had no idea where to find it? Well, look no further, obscure genre seeker. I have just the thing for you, it’s Not So Super. That’s the title, not my synopsis. It is quite super in the underdog-gets-superpowers kind of way.
— Luke Anthony | theouthousers.com
Not So Super is awesome! Period. (Or exclamation point if you prefer!) It takes an everyman sort of character, in a boring every day job and then gives him something that he must have dreamed about having (superpowers), but is unable to control or understand.

…once in a rare while, a set of independent creators brings a comic that is broadly appealing, readable, engaging, and easily more worth the money than a continually repeating X-Men storyline or apocalyptic Justice League cross-over. Today, Not So Super is that comic.

This is a good first issue. Peppered (ahem) with humour, it has a certain charm and managed put a smile on my face.

Not So Super is well worth a read.
— Leo Johnson | NerdSpan
The writing and art work together perfectly, hitting the same tonal notes; Nyemb and Hunter manage to bounce back and forth the humor and the mundane events to create a book that is wholly entertaining from start to finish.
— Kristine Chester | Fanboy Comics
It sort of reminds me of DC Comics’ Resurrection Man only Dan doesn’t have to die… and his powers are practically useless. It’s a combination ripe for action, intrigue and comedy and I can’t wait to see where Nyemb and Hunter take the story next.
—Rondal Scott | Strange Kids Club
…I liked that this was a comic in its truest sense, something that anyone could read and enjoy.

Jacques Nyemb and Joe Hunter work well together and this is a comic book that would suit most ages and certainly would be a good start for those who want to get into comics.
