Paul Chadwick is one of the few real illustrators left in comics. Like the late greats Will Eisner and Wally Wood or modern masters Chris Ware and J.H. Williams III, Chadwick approaches the comic page as a work of art and knows how to tell stories. Chadwick’s Concrete stories are packed with elements of science fiction and intense human drama. I haven’t been keeping up with Dark Horse Presents, so I am looking forward to this one-shot collection.
DARK HORSE says: “One of the medium’s all-time greats is back in this collection of Concrete stories from the relaunched Dark Horse Presents! In three new adventures, the most human of heroes intervenes in a burglary that turns out to be much more, investigates a possible sighting of the aliens who gave him his rocky body, and develops an alternative to the Taser: himself. This issue strikes the perfect balance of inviting stories for new readers and character development for longtime fans!”
