i was really dissapointed. i didn't like the drawing style and i found the dialogue predictable and stilted. this doesn't look much better. there's a lot of hype around this guy but i really think he's over-rated. give me Jeff Smith over this any day.

The only work of his I've seen is the cover art for the Five Iron Frenzy albums, and that was always very unusual. This sounds interesting, although I noticed something since "The Iron Giant" was named in this review... The kid looks just like the kid from that movie.

I remember that game so fondly, purely bizzare in its own right. That was some of Doug's best work.

Zeekade, you actually got a link to what your talking about, cause i cant find it.

Like, say... The Incredibles? :P Wish granted! I picked up Creature Tech about a year ago, but still haven't gotten through it all. One of these days. Loved Earthworm Jim, though I've lost the knack of playing it well. Hope this one's as good as it sounds!

This Ain't Cool. Actually, I shouldn't say that. It _may_ be cool to a _very_ narrow audience of...oh, say, maybe overweight geeks who waste their money reading comic books at gyms. Peter Jackson's King Kong will shit heavily upon this trash. Go read your old copies of Devil Dinosaur.

I may not agree with everything but no one else has managed, at least to my knowing, making a religiously themed book that was willing to engage its audience at a mature topical level. It's no more heavy handed than Signs (hey, I have a short attention span). It's too bad (for comic lovers and people who like great children's books) that CT doesn't represent the preferred type of diversity for most people. Comic Book Galaxy posted a hilariously bigoted "non"-review (Why I Won't Review Creature Tech) back when it came out, and I couldn't help but think of how much people like that were missing out. A damn shame.

Does this remind anyone else of a short story in the SCATTERBRAIN anthology put out by Dark Horse a few years ago? It was called TOMMY T-REX.
