Publisher's Note:  

Slip on your acid-free gloves, make sure you have a duplicate copy of How to Grow Up and Rule the World (just in case something should happen to this one) and try to follow along as the incomparable, superior-in-all-ways Vordak the Incomprehensible teaches you a thing or two about villainy.  Now you, too, can try (and fail) to attain Vordak's level of infamy.

From selecting the most dastardly name, to choosing the ideal henchmen, to engaging in witty repartee with disgustingly chipper superheroes, experienced supervillain Vordak the Incomprehensible guides readers step-by-step toward the ultimate goal of world domination (from his parents' basement in Trenton, New Jersey). 
With chapter titles like "Bringing Out the Evil" and "Building a Top-Notch Evil Organization," numerous bold illustrations, and detailed quizzes to assess your level of dastardliness, this book provides everything necessary to rise above the masses, and then rub your ascent in their faces.

In return for this wealth of knowledge, Vordak requests nothing more than an honored place in the evil regime of he who achieves control of the world. (And, of course, the opportunity to assume command, should things not work out.)

Overall Review:  

Vordak the Incomprehensible:  How to Grow Up and Rule the World by Vordak T. Incomprehensible is a comic novella:  prose intermingled with cartoon illustrations, lists, and graphics.  It is a tongue-in-cheek guide that spoofs superheroes and supervillians; it is actually pretty funny.  The tone is at times sarcastic and Vordak likes to talk to the reader in a condenscending manner.  With the artwork, popularity of superheroes, and plentiful white space, this book has sure-fire boy appeal.  Readers who like such doodle diaries as Diary of a Wimpy Kid would probably enjoy this book.  However, Vordak the Incomprehensible is a welcome change from the middle school scene and the writing is a big notch up.  Be prepared for some great linguistics and plentiful alliterations.  The first in a series, there is more where this came from.
