    There's nothing quasi about this profundity. Read Full Review

    Whether I understand the overall plan for this mini-series or not, there is something that we all can relate to within its pages - the common experience of filling our days with something that is only a means to an end, an end that is too often, too far in the future to realize.

    As with the previous issue, regardless of where you stand on the extreme weirdness of this book, you can't help but marvel at the artwork of Kevin Nowlan. If the overwhelming sense of weird contained in this book turns you off (you guys get that I am saying this book is weird, right?), then do yourself a favor and still flip through it. It's truly a work of art, a painted comic book that deserves to be hung on a wall. Read Full Review

    "The Infernal Man-Thing" might have been written over two decades ago, but its posthumous currently feels rather apt. It's not Gerber's final comic story (that turned out to be his Doctor Fate serial in "Countdown to Mystery") but it feels like it's his final word on the medium. It's a shame that the format of its initial publication feels like such a bad decision; misleading (if nice) covers from Arthur Adams, a nonsensical title, and bad chapter-breaks created after the fact. They actually greatly diminish the overall feel for the story that Gerber and Nowlan created here; a collected edition will almost certainly be the preferred method in which to read this story. "Screenplay of the Living Dead Man," Gerber, Nowlan, and the audience all deserved a little more respect after all these years in how we finally got to read this comic. Read Full Review
