Elephantmen #47 Review


Written by Richard Starkings. Drawn by Axel Medellin.

elephantmen-047-cover-webOkay. I walked into this issue, like I do every other issue. KNOWING I am going to get a good read. NEVER have Mr. Richard Starkings and crew let me astray of this one thing I have come to expect from this book. With that, I get into my review.

The team of Hip Flask, Trench and Ebony are granted passage to the moon to investigate some strange occurrences. Upon arriving, they are immediately found to be in the present setting of a Chinese moon base. They find more than what they are looking for upon entering the vast location.

Of course, I was not disappointed! I was extremely happy with this issue, as I am with every issue. Just when you think you have all the characters down, they are introduced to a new setting that tests their behavior. Overall, I am absolutely frothing at the mouth in anticipation of the next issue.

Filled with more twists and turns than the Monaco Grand Prix, this story is promising that it is just going to get better and better. Because of this, and many other reasons, I don’t walk into this book with any expectations. Mostly because I am always delivered a great story and great art that has a solid story line and foundation.
