Up, Up and Oy Vey!

I just saw this on Amazon. Sounds interesting since it's written by an actual Rabbi, but it's his first book and I'm always a scooch leary of first-time authors.

So anyone else read this yet? Is it worth picking up? It's just that I have SO many books to catch up on already. (I'm nearly a year behind in my Alter Egos, not to mention the stacks of books collecting dust in the basement.)

I know there are two different books on Jewish superheroes, because I read some excerpts from one online, and it was really interesting. It was actually really really interesting! But I'm not sure if this is that one, or the other one.

I'd take a chance, though. The subject is a rich vein.

The Rabbi who wrote this book is VERY funny in person and spoke at the Brooklyn Book Fair last year with Chris Claremont and Mike Madden. I've read several chapters - and since misplaced it, but it's pretty cool.
