Madman is back! Give us more, Allred! Sep 6, 2003
It's been a few years, between "The Atomics," "X-Force" and "X-Statix," since we've seen Mike Allred's Madman in a solo adventure, but this book really satisfied me, even if it did make me long for a more regular Madman fix.
Frank "Madman" Einstein is looking forward to a quiet date with his girlfriend, Joe, until she's abducted by a strange Fish Man (classic for a Madman villain). The resulting search and battle is the sort of fun action and existential mayhem we've come to expect from Allred.
The three back-up stories in this volume are all by other writer/artists. They each have their good points, but my favorite is Daniel Krall's "Speaking Frankly," where a bunch of teenagers give their own views of the Madman of Snap City.
This is a dandy little book. If only there were more in the works for the near future... uh, I'll be aching for a Madman fix now.
