Madman Atomic Comics #4

Madman Atomic Comics #4 (Image Comics)
By Michael Allred

The revival of Madman continues in brilliant fashion. Rescued in space by his own Techno-Clone, Astroman, Frank Einstein finds himself picked up by a strange space traveler who takes him to an ancient creature who points him in the direction of his own future. Madman has always been the sort of comic that carefully treads the thin border between zany, familiar superhero comics and cerebral, out-there works like Grant Morrison‘s Doom Patrol. This storyline is definitely trending toward the latter. Allred, fortunately, is one of the true masters of that kind of story. This feels like the next chapter in a storyline he’s been unspooling slowly over many, many years, and the patience both of the creator and the readers feels like it’s really paying off. I simply can’t wait for next issue and the return of The Atomics.
