Dog-Eared Novel

I am not sure full length comic books (often referred to as graphic novels) count as novels. According to the definitions I found online a novel is a “fictitious prose narrative of book length, typically representing character and action with some degree of realism.” Fictitious prose. Full length comic books … I mean graphic novels, are stories of super human (aka meta-human) beings or aliens from earth or other planets. The most famous of these beings is a person born on a dying planet who becomes earths mightiest hero. I am such a geek.

Character and action. That being from another planet, first appeared in the American comic book series, Action Comics in April 18, 1938. The character gained super strength when exposed to earth solar radiation. He could leap tall buildings in a single bound, run faster than a speeding bullet, and was more powerful than a locomotive.

As a boy I would his adventures over and over and over again.

Troon Brewing’s Dog-Eared Novel is as Alex suggests, comforting and familiar, like your favorite book. Like Superman.
