“When we took a look at the new Eric Curtis photography book, Fallen Superheroes, we were nearly in tears we laughed so hard! If you are a comic book lover, you will surely enjoy the misfit superheroes created by the LA-based photographer, with text by Adam Mock and Scott Allen Perry.”
~ Amanda Jakubik, Trendland.com
Shot in various real-life locations, featuring some very interesting Lycra-clad creativity, adorned with random and witty—sometimes randomly witty—captioning, Fallen Superheroes probably can’t compete with that copy of Annie Leibovitz: A Photographer’s Life collection sitting on your coffee table, but it will probably make you smile more.

“Together with writers Scott Allen Perry and Adam Mock, Eric Curtis created Fallen Superheroes to catch the attention of superhero lovers who are open to some belly-jiggling laughs.”
~ Noemi Twigg, ForeverGeek (June 6, 2012)
“Fallen Superheroes imagines the daily lives of second-rate superheroes who may have put on a few pounds here and there. Disheveled, worn out, or simply mildly deranged, Curtis’s superheroes indulge in life’s simple pleasures. . . .”
~ Emily Temple, Flavorwire.com
“. . . we get a strong sense of this world, where some incredibly powerful beings do battle in mundane housing developments, while others cultivate eccentric hobbies; some don’t bother to take off the suit before doing their chores, while others enjoy the finer things in life.”

"It's funny, sad, beautiful, ugly and entirely worth reading."
~Amanda Quintenz-Fieldler, Photographer's Forum Magazine
“This is the type of coffee table book that will catch your friends’ eyes and cause conversation to spiral off into spontaneity. But aside from showing off to pals, I found it fascinating to revisit how this project was created (in the introduction) after going through the entire series. It creates a whole new appreciation for the project and had me wishing Hollywood would put the common superheroes to rest and concentrate on a film about these guys and gals.”

“As I read through this mishmash of B-grade heroes and mutants, I am reminded of one thing: how much fun it is to be a comic nerd. . . . A perfect Christmas gift for your comic-loving friends.”
