    Concrete is a unique hero, and "Concrete: Three Uneasy Pieces" is a collection that shows the Chadwick's range (mystery, travel, domestic suburbia), but also highlights his approach to story. In a review of Ursula K. Le Guin's novels and short stories, Margaret Atwood once wrote, "Sci-fi is sometimes just an excuse for dressed-up swashbuckling and kinky sex, but it can also provide a kit for examining the paradoxes and torments of what was once fondly referred to as the human condition." All the kingdoms and planets in Le Guin's stories are just a way to talk about our own world. Like Le Guin, Chadwick's concerns are anthropological rather than scientific, with a particular focus on individual human actors and their messy motivations. It's a continuous pleasure to see this kind of storytelling in comics. Read Full Review
