Owen Craig is Mudman. He thought he could control the mud. It seems the mud has other ideas!

    "Mudman" #5 is a good enough book that I'll buy it a second time in a collected format, even as I'm unable to give up reading it issue-by-issue. Every new installment is a joy, and this one is no exception. If you never read comics like "Kane" or "Jack Staff" from Grist, you've been missing out. Don't make that mistake a third time. Head to your local store and buy all the "Mudman" you can. You'll thank me later. Read Full Review

    Definitely worth picking up, just not at the $3.50 price point. Wait for the month after release, when the price drops down to $1.99 (disclaimer: all my knowledge on comic pricing comes from Comixology). Mudman, despite its problems, is shaping up to be one hell of a story, if the plot points hinted at pan out. Above everything else though, Mudman is charming, really charming. Its like the Forrest Gump of comics, a bit silly, not the smartest thing out there, clumsy, but overwhelming charming and it always means well. Read Full Review

    Unfortunately Mudman has suffered from delays (and I’m willing to bet that it will again) which may cost it some readers, but it’s still deserving of your attention. Mudman #5 is not a groundbreaking comic, and I don’t think it’s likely to appeal to a lot of superhero fans, but it is a hell of a lot of fun and it’s unlike anything else you’re likely to find at your local comicbook store. The simplicity of Mudman’s story - especially compared to most mainstream superhero comics - means that it’s easy to jump in without reading the previous four issues too, so If you’re at all curious about seeing what a truly British superhero comic is like, you’ll do well to check out Mudman #5.
