Elephantmen has been around, I think, since I started reading comics Richard Starking has only gotten better and better at Story telling There really is nothing like this out on the stands, right now.
I recently met Richard Starkings at the Montr al Comiccon and had been wanting to try out his Elephantment for a while The reviews of it were mostly good and hey, I got this trade for 20 from the artist himself and he even sketched and autographed it for me.
That being said, this didn t exactly blow me away The art, mostly by a bunch of different artists, and I could see what he was trying to achieve, is just too uneven The story, apart from always refering to back issues I thought I was reading a Marvel book from the 70s there for a while was decent, but in no way all that memorable.
Overall, I guess didn t really appeal to me Some of the sc nes were borderline beastiality and none of the characters really hooked books, Elephantmen, Vol 4 Author Richard Starkings This Is Very Good And Becomes The Main Topic To Read, The Readers Are Very Takjup And Always Take Inspiration From The Contents Of The Book Elephantmen, Vol 4 , Essay By Richard Starkings Is Now On Our Website And You Can Download It By Register What Are You Waiting For Please read And Make A Refission For [Richard Starkings] ↠´ Elephantmen, Vol.
4 [lesbian-romance PDF] Ebook Epub Download ¹ You male gaze the comic b More great stuff b The thing with Elephantmen is that it doesn t hide from its own silliness Huge beasts, genetically fused man animal hybrids, glamorous sometimes overly sexualised, some might argue ladies and big guns The art is always gorgeous no matter which of the stable of artists it is, and this volume even features an issue of the comics 25 where each page was drawn by a different artist But, behind the fa ade of Elephantmen there is a very human, emotional element of the struggle with the characters humanities and relationships There are allegories for segregation, and issues with the sense of self It s clever than it looks, but even on a surface level is so damn fun Great comic book all around C I really do enjoy this series but I will admit that I m getting a little tired of the repetition in the history of the elephantmen It seems like every issue they have to explain the origins and the characters background in the panel text I think you should write a story where people will pick that up as they go, not one that has to be reiterated constantly It becomes a bit boring, repetative and slows down the story telling That said I did still enjoy the issue It focuses mostly on the human women of the series Miki seemed to have gone off her idea of dating Hip, but then changed her mind Sahara was out in the world, and there was back story for Blackthorne and Vanity had a very close call But the plot was delved up in small doses and hard to keep straight, even when reading in one go I love the art and the ideas of this se ½ Elephantmen, Vol.
4 ½ Still not overly excited by the oblique way they have of telling the story, but the artwork in these is some of the best in comics and the gorgeous design work that goes into each graphic collection really makes them stand out This is one comic where owning the collected volumes really makes sense, I d say, rather than buying each issue individually.
Questionable Things had some great moments in it, but did stick a little too closely to some stereotypes in comics I know that s a weird thing to criticize about a pulp comic, but you ll see what I mean The stories continue well but it doesn t feel as impacting as when you first read Volume 1.
I was thinking for 4 volumes what bothered me about this book and I finally got it So here goes Unstable art, there are too many artists doing art very differently I would prefer consistency over art expression Huge world building, For 4 issues there has been one character back story after the other Every single character got a couple of pages explaining their origin The past is being explored in a quite some extent even though there is 0 volume is dedicated to past completely No plot Except for the world building, there is not much going on.
That being said, I still like it But I would appreciate some story to finally unravel, Hopefully in next volume.
Good to see that the story is becoming a lot focused and nice to see things from the war are now coming into play and learning a lot about how society feels about the Elephantmen and vice versa especially how Elephantmen feel about the successful Elephantmen like Horn.
