Vinnie Dupe is small, smart and be-spectacled. He’s the underdog’s underdog with a love of graphic novels. He’s living proof that nice guys really do finish last. Vinnie’s in search of his true identity, but his social ineptitude and a love for anything with a cult following (obscure rock bands, Monty Python and Dr Who) are undoubtedly holding him back. What Vinnie has going for him is a quick, dry wit… unfortunately, with the exception of best friends Doyle and Eva, most people don’t listen to him long enough to realise it. So step forward alter ego Victor – blogging Superman to Vinnie’s Clark Kent.
As Victor, Vinnie can be confident and outspoken, giving him just enough power to offset his delusions of adequacy – as well as affording him the opportunity to tinker in the affairs of Eva and new beau, Danny. Vinnie’s torch for Eva burns brightly, but when he meets fellow sci-fi lover Rachel, he’ll begin to question the obsessive nature of his relationship with Eva…Is it possible – could Vinnie actually be getting a life?
