Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Flex Mentallo - Man of Muscle Mystery (Deluxe Edition) (Hardcover)
If you are a fan of Morrison and Quitely's All Star Superman or We3 be aware that you are not getting more of the same. I bought the comics when they originally came out (in about 1996) and was beaten into submission by the ferocious stream of ideas and images. 15 years later, with larger page size and high quality packaging, the effect is much the same. I'm not sure I really understood Flex Mentallo but I enjoyed it. The basic story can be summed up as 'Flex goes looking for a lost member of his old superteam'. However this is similar to saying The Matrix is about a war between man and machine, there are layers within layers within layers of meaning. I had read elsewhere that Flex was a comment on the state of comics with each chapter representing a different age, silver etc. Damed if I can see it. Buy it and be boggled.
