Would you listen to Corpies again? Why?
I bought Corpies because I listened and enjoyed the 'Super Powereds' series (and yes, that is the correct spelling :) It has a nice overlap and takes a fringe character from that series and puts him centre stage in Corpies. I will definitely re-visit the whole series in the future (so many other new books to listen to though)
What other book might you compare Corpies to, and why?
I'm struggling to give you a comparable book, so I'll throw you a curve ball.. Check out Peter Clines '14' Fantastic story and great narration by Ray Porter, you will love it
Which scene did you most enjoy?
Who doesn't love a fight with a building sized Automaton
Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
It made me chuckle at times, I'm an old misery guts, I don't do laughing :)
Any additional comments?
Another Powereds spinoff will be greeted with pleasure

I was both eagerly anticipating and dreading Corpies release. If you've finished Year One have no fear, the spoilers in Corpies are very, very minor. Time-wise it seems to take place during Super Powereds Year Three, but it avoids all but two very minor spoilers, one of which is painfully obvious and the other very easily missed.
The book is great. It does a lot of great world building, giving a wealth of information about the world of Super Powereds and how it works. The story itself is as original a super hero story as I've ever read. It really deserves a place along side Watchmen (graphic novel, not the dreadful movie). I'm not sure if Drew is planning to continue the story of Titan and/or the corpies, but I'd read it in a second.

Titan is my hero and I'm grateful to the author for this volume. Without pandering or resorting to depressing tropes, Mr. Hayes has delivered, in my opinion, his best work yet in the Super-Powereds setting. If you haven't listened to SP Years 1 and 2, I recommend you do so before starting this volume. It's a stand-alone piece, but you'll enjoy it more that way. You can listen to Corpies confidently without fear of spoilers of SP Year 3.
I hope that we'll see more of Titan and the others in this volume in the future, but I also hope that the author will continue to explore tangents leading off the Super-Powereds line. They lead to amazing places.
You should listen to this book.
