    Default Who is not reading Elephantmen?

    I feel this is a must read comic, and want to spread the word about how good it is!

    Elephantmen and a few IDW books have made me realize I no longer to spend money on anything Mavel. Pick up Elephantmen and see what you think.

    I am pretty sure May is Elephantmen awareness month. Or it should be!

    I read it for a while then dropped it. It was really interesting but I kind of got tired of the Manga Girl crushing on the Elephant Men and the pacing felt too slow. I like backstory and it was typically well done, but the it would meander a little too slowly for me.

    I just finished reading the first trade and enjoyed it. I have the second trade and will read that soon ..... hopefully it continues to be enjoyable.

    Maybe it should be, because I've never even heard of it before. What's it about?

    It's a book I should have been reading since the beginning, but haven't. It's the right genre for me. But now it's been going on so long i keep putting it off.

    It's on my radar, but I feel like I'm too many issues behind already.

    Issue 51 is a good jumping on point. The series does reference events from earlier issues, but I never really needed to go back and read most them. I grabbed enough random back issues to get the gist of what's going on. It's not necessarily a book you have to follow from the beginning. Instocktrades has the TPBs at good prices, though.

    Met Richard Starkings at a con two years ago and really dug talking to the guy. Bought the first three hardcovers from him on the spot. I read the first in a single setting but never followed up. Although I did buy the fourth when I saw him the next year. Keep meaning to get back into it.

    Jump on with 50 (an overview of the concept plus issue 1 reprint) or 51 (start of a new arc), totally worth it!

    I'm waaaaay behind (like 20+ issues behind), but I have loved every bit I've read.

    I'm not sure if I'll try to catch up or just jump on from #50... >_>
