Item description for Madman: The Oddity Odyssey by Mike Allred & Laura Allred...

Ten years ago, Madman hit the comics scene like a quick, Three Stooges-style jab to the eye. Armed with a yo-yo and a slightly left-of-center attitude, Frank Einstein is Snap City's most impressive masked crime fighter. In fact, he's kind of the only one! In this wacky debut, meet the whole eccentric cast of characters from the goofy genius, Dr. Flem to the despicably evil Mr. Mondstadt. And, of course, don't forget Joe, the love of Frank Einstein's life. This fearless beauty is the only one who sees past Madman's hideously disfigured face to the person within, and wants to know the true story of how Frank Einstein became Madman! Long out-of-print, Madman: The Oddity Odyssey is a seminal work of graphic literature, bridging the gaps of mainstream superhero mythos and the no-holds-barred world of independent, creator-driven comics. Oni Press is proud to celebrate the 10th anniversary of this amazing comic book by returning it to its original glory.

Reviews - What do customers think about Madman: The Oddity Odyssey?

Absolutley Fantastic!!!  Aug 2, 2003
Words fail me on just how brilliant the Allred's 'Madman' stories are.
If you like intelligent, witty, surreal and at times touching stories than pick up these books while you still can.
Make sure you read them in order and you will be rewarded with one of the most enlightening experiences you can possible get from a comic book.
Surreal Genius  Mar 27, 2003
This collection is an excellent introduction to the bizarre world of Madman. Mike Allred delivers a brilliant homage to classic sixties "silver-age" super heroes with all the staple campness and heavy melodrama but with enough early nineties indy-comic irony to keep it all in check. Allred's pop-arty drawing style is a perfect fit for the story and anyone familar with his recent work on X-force/X-statix should feel right at home. Everything about the book is pure manic fun right down to the dancing Madman flip-book animation that runs along the bottom of each page.
Great and Unique  Jan 12, 2003
This book was my first introduction to Madman, as it is in fact a collection of the first few issues of the (at the time very independant) series by Mike Allred. I just loved this book so much that I continued to follow the character and subsequent volumes, but none ever captured the same unique, bizarre specialness of this first adventure. The art is very cool but presented in black and white but don't let that prevent you from checking it out. It's a wonderfully kooky, charming and entertaining piece of storytelling. Funny and original.
