Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Plastic Man returns in a maniacally energetic, ragingly harebrained, gloriously Technicolor series. Baker recaps Stretch's origin: Eel O'Brian, career criminal, attempts to rob a chemical plant, only to fall into the fateful vat of acid that gives him his superpowers (i.e., his infinite pliability). He recuperates from the accident with a kindly group of monks and emerges as Plastic Man, doer of good. After listening to Eel's sad tale, one of the monks remarks, "I'll let you rest up from your exhausting backstory," and it's this sort of self-awareness that provides the bite needed to balance the story's relentless silliness. Plastic Man's co-stars include his doughy sidekick, Woozy Winks, and a dishy agent named Morton, a hard-boiled blonde with zero patience for our hero's occasional hijinks. The general plot, in which Eel is framed for murder and Plastic Man must clear his name, is paper thin, but it provides an excellent backdrop for Stretch to do his thing, and it allows Baker's comic inventiveness to shine in endless sight gags. One memorable spread has Plastic Man splashed across the side of a building, disguised as graffiti. Baker also makes visual nods to other great cartoonists, including one in which Stretch's acid-transformed face melts between his hands in a take-off on a classic R. Crumb drawing. Plastic Man is an entertaining confection with all the weight of a balloon animal. (Nov.) Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Library Journal
Wildly and comically inventive, Jack Cole's original Plastic Man stories from the 1940s (currently being reprinted by DC in their Archives series), are much loved by comics fans and admired by Art Spiegelman, whose Jack Cole and Plastic Man is part biography, part appreciation. Now Baker (Why I Hate Saturn) presents a new and very funny take on the character. Plastic Man was the criminal Eel O'Brien until the accident that gave him his powers and the intervention of a kindly monk helped him turn his life around. Now his past comes back to haunt him, as someone frames Eel O'Brien for murder, and Plastic Man must solve the crime while trying to prevent his fellow FBI agents from learning his secret. Baker's exaggerated, cartoony artwork is reminiscent of TV animation, and Baker uses Plastic Man's infinite malleability in endless sight gags. With hilarious dialog and lots of good-natured superhero parody, this won the 2004 Eisner Award for Best New Series, and it's strongly recommended for all collections, for teens and adults.

    STUNNING COMIC ART

    Comic aficionados have a surprise in store with Eisner Award winner Kyle Baker's take on who else but PLASTIC MAN! (In a plastic cover). Originally created in 1941 by Jack Cole Plastic Man was a flexible super hero, to say the least. He could bend, twist like a pretzel, contort his very pliable body into all kinds of shapes to make sure that good conquered evil. Plas, as he was known to friends was often found in the company of his pudgy buddy, Woozy Winks. Popular for perhaps 16 years, Plas is a cult favorite today. With his reintroduction by Baker (who also copped the Harvey Award) Plas may gain a new following among both children and adults. Plastic Man holds the first six issue of this rubbery crusader's exploits. Plas is in a jam as he's framed for a crime he didn't commit. Even his pals are convinced he's the guilty party with Superman exclaiming, 'Plastic Man a criminal! By the moons of Krypton! How could we have been so blind?' It's easy to believe Plas has done wrong as he has a shady past - he was once known as no-gooder, Eel O'Brien. With only Woozy to assist Plas has to find the real culprit. Plastic Man as seen through the eyes of Kyle Baker is pure parody delivered in eye-popping color.
