Elephantmen

Elephantmen

Quite frankly it's ridiculous that we've got this far into the calendar without me mentioning Elephantmen. It is, after all, my favorite comic at the moment and, if you've ever been into the shop, I'm pretty sure you will have been told how this is the best comic out there, and not just by me either, oh no.
We all love it here, it's dystopian science fition, it's trashy pulp noir, it's high art, it's giant animal-human hybrids fighting each other, it's social commentry and above all it's pure genius, effortlessly weaving all these elements together to bring us something that ticks ALL the boxes on the 'what makes a good comic' list.

Set in Los Angeles in the 23rd Century, a time of peace after a massive World War, A War fought by huge genetically engineered 'Super-soldiers', human-animal hybrids, cross bred from the largest, fiercest animals of the African continent. Elephantmen tells the story of these veterans once the war is over, how they are integrated into a fearful, suspicious society.

A beautiful and superbly written epic that has something for everyone, it draws parallels throughout with prejudice and discrimination that is all too present in today's society. Not to say that this is a dark, serious book, it is anything but. Elephantmen is full of some the best artwork to grace a comic with work from the likes of Ladronn, Moritat, Boo Cook, Marian Churchland and many, many more, all bringing this strange and yet oddly believable world to life.

If you haven't read it yet or if you know someone who isn't reading it, then it's time you sorted that out. And remember, an Elephantman is for life, not just for Christmas.
