    "Madman Atomic Comics" #11 doesn't allow Frank Einstein a moment of reflection where he can realize how close he is to achieving his purpose, because this series is about the struggle of not knowing, even when the answer is right in front of you. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Nov 9, 2008

    The depth of this issue and it's ruminations on life and death are tough to summarize, honestly, but really interesting in a spiritual sense. The character who was about fun, puns, pop-art references (Mott the Hoople, anyone?) and silliness has evolved into a deep study in philosophy and mortality, and more power to him. I don't suspect that this kind of thing is for everyone, but Allred's art has a new subtlety to it, with the artitecture, the vehicles and technology nearing photorealism, while the characters maintain his trademark stylization, while his writing meshes high-falutin' spiritual talk with down-to-earth real people dialogue nicely. It's a strong outing for Madman, earning Madman Atomic Comics #11 3 out of 5 stars, and making me once again happy to connect with an old friend now grown-up. Read Full Review
