Posted on January 23, 2014 by Kat Salazar
A new arc, a new slim trade paperback format, and a low introductory price make this the perfect opportunity to join the legions of ELEPHANTMEN fans with ELEPHANTMEN 2260, BOOK ONE, written by Richard Starkings and featuring art by Axel Medellin.
Jack Farrell is a private detective who never gave a second thought to the Elephantmen—until he was paid to. Read the comic John Layman, writer of the New York Times bestselling CHEW calls, "not just the best science-fiction on the market today, but simply one of the absolute best comics. An epic, affecting, unforgettable exploration of the human condition."
ELEPHANTMEN 2260, BOOK ONE collects issues 51-55.
Praise for ELEPHANTMEN 2260:
“A new beginning is definitely how I would bill this book. It doesn't erase anything that's come before but just puts one of the main characters in a different corner of the universe. If you love science-fiction mixed with some hard boiled characters and some strong character work then you should pick this up.” —Brandon Borzelli, ComicList
“Get it for the main story, get it for the back up, get Elephantmen, one of the best comics on the rack that far too few people are reading.” —Bob Bretall, ComicSpectrum
“Starkings brilliant storytelling wouldn't be anything without Axel Medellin's art adding to it. The emotion of this book is told through Medellin's facial expressions and close ups. His ability to draw advanced technology and mutilated and mangled fetus' help ground the story in a futuristic setting.” —Lenny Wojt, Nerds on the Rocks
ELEPHANTMEN: 2260 BOOK ONE TP (ISBN: 978-1-60706-960-7), collecting ELEPHANTMEN #51-55, arrives in stores on 4/2 at a low introductory price of $9.99. It can be pre-ordered using Diamond Code FEB140572.
