Something that should always excite a comic book fan is a mini-series. While it might not impact the larger comic boom universe, a mini means that a creator had a pitch they were passionate about. Plastic Man #1 by Gail Simone and Adriana Melo is an example of that. Simone takes one of the oddest characters in DC history and immediately introduces you to his character, his humor, and how it impacts the world around him. From his constant joking to his night job at a superhero themed strip club, it is clear that Simone has a good grip on the character. Though it is only six issues, Plastic Man issue #1 sets the stage for something much bigger and comic fans should be paying attention.
iRate Reviews is the show where I go over specific comic books from my pickup that deserve to be talked about and review them in a little bit more depth. This doesn’t mean that they are always good though. Some comics are lessons in what NOT to do.
