Written by Richard Starkings. Drawn by Axel Medellin and Dave Sim (Ebony Dreams sequence).
WOW. I am always amazed when I open a new issue. This issue is no different. The writing is spot-on as always and the story, written (in the true sense of the word) by Richard Starkings, just goes deeper and deeper building upon the mythology of the Elephantmen.
I love how this book continues to build upon things that you think are done with, but later come back to add even more to the story that is currently happening. The art drawn by Axel Medellin is amazing as well. Whether these words were on artless pieces of paper, or the art had no words, the stories they tell are well worth the price of this book. Ebony’s dream sequence in this issue….there are no words.
The art drawn by Dave Sim is so highly detailed that I found myself staring at it for over 30 minutes. It’s visually stunning. The rest of the book builds upon the creation of the Elephantmen, and the previous decision that Sahara made to be impregnated with Obadiah’s seed. The one bad thing about this series is that I always want the rest of the story now.
