Hip Flask: Concrete Jungle (Review)
Citizen's Grade: Awesome.
This volume, The Big Here & The Long Now, is fabulous! I can't over-state the beauty of the story and the artwork!
The story takes place in 2162....They are the survivors of genetic engineering experiments and indoctrination by Doctor Kazushi Nikken and MAPPO, a sinister organization which sought to create superhuman weapons of mass destruction. Now, freed and rehabilitated by the United Nations Intelligence Taskforce, the "Unhumans" now live amongst men. Legitimized by the Elephantmen Act, they are nevertheless denied the right to bear arms and must survive on their wits alone... Collecting Hip Flask: Elephantmen and Hip Flask: Mystery City into one handsome volume.
Written by Richard Starkings, with artwork by Casey & Ladronn....this is the second volume in the growing Elephantmen series.
