    Default Meet the Mud Pack: The Clayface(s) Appreciation (2019)

    NOTE: This is a continuation of the previous "Meet the Mud Pack: The Clayface(s) Appreciation Thread", which can be read here:
    From the previous version of this thread (started in September 2018),


    Who the person called "Clayface" was when you first encountered the character in comic book stories or in animated series may have depended greatly on when the comic book / show was first produced, since quite a few different people have gone by that name over the years.

    I’ve finally started reading Grant’s Detective run (starting at #601 for now though as that’s what my shop had in stock, will hunt down the rest at a later date) and absolutely loved the Mudpack arc!! Honestly didn’t know anything about Clayface other than what he’s like at the moment, so I loved meeting the others and learning more about Boris!! Really interested in the character now, any recommendations on what to read next to see how Boris evolved into what he is today?
