"I'm Back!" - 25 Reasons for a Villain's Survival

Watermarked PDF

In some genres, especially superhero, villains may be defeated, but this is rarely permanent and they will return again to trouble the heroes once more.

This supplement lists 25 different ways in which a villain (or perhaps a hero) could have survived an experience that looked like it was surely fatal. Some may require a degree of retcon, as they reveal previously unknown abilities; others may change the character of the villain and their abilities to differing degrees.

Here is a sample result:

I, Robot

"Your attack would have killed a normal human, but not my Robotic Body!"

The supposedly deceased villain was not actually human, or organic, in nature, but instead was a very lifelike android or robot. If previous scans or probes had apparently shown them to be human or, at least, biological in nature then it would follow that their body possesses some means capable of fooling such scans or probes. The attack failed due to the villain's body being constructed from artificial materials much stronger than mere flesh and blood.

One page of the supplement is the cover, one page the front matter.

The download for this is only giving a php file. Not a pdf.

It seems to be a problem on DriveThru's side related to watermarking. I've uploaded the file again and disabled watermarking and got it to download okay. It didn't work when I tried to download it in the same browser - a caching issue - but worked when I used another.

That seems to have worked when I switched to another browser yes. Thank you.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
