From Booklist

Created to pester the Swamp Thing yea-many years back, the Un-Men are surgically created freaks now receiving their second spin-off (after a five-issue comic in 1994) at Whalen and Hawthorne’s enthusiastic hands. Cranius (a face-and-bulging-brain atop a hand, which perches on a supersurgeon body, Otto) and Janus (an extra head and smaller torso sprout from his back) have seized corporate control of Aberrance U.S.A., a city reservation–cum–theme park for the very differently abled that was founded by the late (sort of, it develops) Damien Kane, whom cancer experimentation made elephant-man-like. The citizenry is restless, and after albino agent Kilcrop comes to investigate the murder of dissident Berthold the Amazing Gill-Boy, all hell breaks loose—and just as Cranius as, atop Otto, Dr. Von Schadel is set to launch his surefire-hit reality show, American Freak. A verbal and visual stream of gross-outs, gunplay, gore, grimaces, un-PC guffaws, and heroics executed with an oh-puh-leez! attitude, this is immense over-the-top fun, perfect for a movie with Jim Carrey as everybody except Niko, the one-armed, two-winged love interest. --Ray Olson

I felt like the writing was formulaic... you know, full of tropes and not especially surprising. That being said, it was an entertaining look into lesser explored corners of famous fantasy comics, and I liked the art.
