    But from that rung hangs so much of what makes a country work. It's what makes home, home. And it's what would make America a finer place to live in, if we keep it in mind more often. “Elephantmen” #50 means to put it in our minds. It means to keep us from taking it for granted, just like they did to the elephantmen, just like we did before, and like we continue to do today, sometimes. Starkings, Medellin, and Bautista decided to pull back the curtain for the 50th issue – and it made for an issue that everyone could and should check out, even if they've never read “Elephantmen” before.

    With this issue, Starkings continues to show us just how rich of a world that he and his multitude of artists have created. You can have these high concept stories, where mysteries take the characters to Mars in just the previous issue and here you have a very grounded story, a very realistic story about how the average elephantman had to assimilate into society while our main heroes and villains have had their celebrated and praised.

    In short, I'm very happy with Elephantmen #50. Whilst it doesn't highlight much of the current plot, it's a great issue for regular readers and new readers alike. Read Full Review

    A little overpriced and the extra material isn't much, but this issue showed me something new about the series and I didn't think that was possible after 50 issues. Read Full Review
