Top Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
Mike Allred is very talented and his work comprising "Madman: Gargantua" proves it. Unfortunately "Atomic Comics" alienates fans of the latter.

I have every issue of Madman Atomic Comics published so far and will continue to buy them, but I can't help but yearn for the old days. The new stories have the same characters, but most of them are there for the sake of saying they made an appearance.

The familiar voice and soap opera drama is gone as each issue is more of a self-contained adventure that is plotted out with a different style each issue. Innovation seems to be the name of the game now, "Let's do something different". WHY? What you were doing was fresh and innovative in and of itself.

I would recommend reading and re-reading "Madman: Gargantua" if you really want to care about the characters. Only then will you realize why the Madman universe is such a fan favorite.

Format: Paperback
This volume is full of experimental art techniques, meaning that Michael Allred took some of the methods that animators use and applied it to Madman. You get a lot of scenes that look like stills from a Disney or Ghibli film, with great backdrops and semi-transparent effects with a lot of fluid activity. Allred also uses plenty of double-page spreads to tell his story, in fact it seems that one issue was nothing but double spreads (they connect in real life and are considered to be the longest continuous comic book panel ever)! There are flashbacks to Madman's life as the assassin Zane Townsend as he tries to penetrate his past, and we see Frank without his Madman suit watching a movie of his life. We learn that Joe has been annihilated and her molecules integrated with those of It Girl, Luna Romy, who lost her beau Adam Balm, the Metal Man, when he was destroyed and turned into the powerful Zombot. Of course, by the end of the book, science restores Adam and separates Joe from Luna, and everything is peachy. The book is virtually popping, bursting at the seams with tons of awesome artwork!

One episode involves the weird material transferium and what happens when Joe helps a bit of it get exposed to the world. In another adventure, Frank and the Atomics (those evil beatnicks who once fought Frank but have now become his super-powered accomplices) have conversation as they fight weird alien fish-lip snake creatures who want to devour a knocked-out It Girl, and they stretch a battle all across town, another adventure caused by Curious Frank using science he doesn't understand. Check out the Jay And Silent Bob's Secret Stash bookstore that they swing past in their battles.

It's great. After so many years Mike Allred is back writing Madman and the story reflects how hard it is. After all he's the creator of that universe. You'll get what i mean while reading carefully the first chapter.
I highly recommend it. For long time Madman's readers this book will tell the story of the four but no exactly as you expected it, maybe.
