CryptozoicMan # 2


If you are a fan of the TV series Comic Book Men, then you will no doubt know of the comic series Cryptozoic Man. The series was created by stars Walt Flanagan and Bryan Johnson and unlike the normal comic creation process fans were along for the ride to see them come up with the idea, pitch it to Dynamite and head to print like never before. Now that series is underway and delivered such a unique first issue, can it keep the momentum going with the latest entry into the series?

In issue 2, Jack Gimlin is bailed out of jail by a mysterious industrialist who offers him the job of a lifetime, tracking and trapping the world's most famous cryptids, who also happen to be portals to alternate dimensions. Meanwhile, the fur flies when Cryptozoic Man learns the fate of a loved one during a cosmic tea party. While this issue isn’t nearly as out there in terms of the action as the first issue, it still keeps things pretty strange. This issue is more about trying to bring this story together and on a path, but at times is so complicated it gets lost in itself. That doesn’t mean it’s not entertaining, because it is. Once again there are plenty of strange characters here, just less disturbing ones this time around. Fans will not get much of the CryptozoicMan in full monster look this issue, but have no fear there are a few snippets and the promise of more to come.

This is one of those books that you would never expect to get made, but the exact kind that we should have more of. This issue takes the imagination to another level and begins to give the story a path. Whether you are a fan of the series or monster comics you should really take a chance on this book if for no other reason to see the madness that has escaped the twisted minds of the Comic Book Men.
