He’s bouncy, he’s stretchy, it get’s a little messy, and in this review, we’ll look at Plastic Man #1 from DC Comics.


PLASTIC MAN #1
Writer: Gail Simone
Artist: Andrea Melo
Publisher: DC Comics
Cover Price: $3.99
Meet Eel O’Brian: a petty thug, thief and con artist who runs a strip club. Hey, he’s also dead, at least according to the gang that tossed him out like last week’s garbage. Literally. Don’t worry, though—he bounced back from all that, and now he’s trying to make a new life for himself, but the effort is stretching him pretty thin. How can he get revenge on his old boss, keep a street kid out of trouble, make a dancer fall in love with him and stop a mysterious society from taking over the world? Eel has no idea!

 [su_quote cite=”Matthew’s Thoughts”]Some joyful dialogue and a very weird main character combine with lovely art to make a fun first issue as long as you’re not sensitive to the occasional off-color remark.

Which I ain’t…
[/su_quote][su_quote cite=”Stephen’s Thoughts”]Not bad for a first issue! I kinda wanna see where Simone takes Eel now that he has made a major revelation about his past, and how he deals with that going forward. The art is wonderful, too![/su_quote]
