All in all, I like this issue better than the last. While I would rather get back to the main storyline, Elephantmen #57 is a welcome pause and helps flesh out some of the back story lying behind all the sci-fi goodness.. Read Full Review
Now THIS is how a filler issue is done! This ties lightly to the saga of Yvette and it is such a simple but touching story with strong undertones. I love the muted colors with a shock of red where necessary: Yvette's hair is rather symbolic in this issue and the only other places you see red are on Agathe's hair-ribbon and lipstick, and at the heartbreaking climax. The story is stretched to the point that it is printed on the back cover, but I'm glad that it is because it gives the story nice pacing and breathing room. Great job, to the whole creative team, this issue has me excited for Elephantmen again!
