Overview

Ten years ago, Madman hit the comics scene like a quick, Three Stooges-style jab to the eye. Armed with a yo-yo and a slightly left-of-center attitude, Frank Einstein is Snap City's most impressive masked crime fighter. In fact, he's kind of the only one! In this wacky debut, meet the whole eccentric cast of characters from the goofy genius, Dr. Flem to the despicably evil Mr. Mondstadt. And, of course, don't forget Joe, the love of Frank Einstein's life. This fearless beauty is the only one who sees past Madman's hideously disfigured face to the person within, and wants to know the true story of how Frank Einstein became Madman! Long out-of-print, Madman: The Oddity Odyssey is a seminal work of graphic literature, bridging the gaps of mainstream superhero mythos and the no-holds-barred world of independent, creator-driven comics. Oni Press is proud to celebrate the 10th anniversary of this amazing comic book by returning it to its original glory.

Editorial Reviews

J. Bone
To paraphrase my mother, 'If you don't stop reading Madman, you'll go blind' It's just that much fun!
Neil Gaiman
Mike Allred uses a light and gentle touch to illuminate the tale of Madman It's a buoyant, genuinely delightful look at a superhero who isn't really, drawn with an unblinking if slightly skewed eye-as if by someone a hundred years from now, nostalgic for the 1990s It's a magic comic, and I hope it will be around for ages.
