Madman is a great comic, one of the best, if you ask me.
This is a collection (the most complete one so far) of all the Madman adventures. Both the early series in Black, Blueish Grey and White (complete with the original thumbnails on the bottom of the pages) and the colored stories. I'm a fan so I give Madman, the comic 10 stars, but this book five. Why? The binding is good (sewn), the effort is laudable but to get all the 850 pages in one book, Image Comics had to use a thinner kind of paper. Don't worry, it's not a bible, but still, a bit thin.
Now to Madman, if you don't already know him. He is Frank Einstein, a hitman brough back from the dead by two mad scientists. He doesn't remember much of his past but sometimes has flashbacks. His so-called adventures are more what you would call funny and fantastic misadventures. Bit by bit, parts of his dark past are revealed. Otherwise Madman is a very loveable almost human character. He falls in love with a pretty girl, Joe. Has a buddy, Mott, from the planet Hoople.
The art? ART with capitals, please. Look at the pictures above. Michael Allred and his wife Laura (colors) do a splendid job, somewhere between the best of American and European comics.
This book is heavy, the stories light, funny and sincere. All that for a great price - If you want to get into Madman or missed out on any of the issues or hardbacks: buy it!!! It's definitely better than the TPBs
