Big as a boulder and strong as an ox, he's Concrete, seven-feet plus of stony celebrity. That he's a government-created cyborg is the cover story, but in truth he's the mind of one Ronald Lithgow trapped inside a rocky shell of alien origin. Possessing of powers allowing him to scale the highest mountain unaided or peel back the roof of a car like a pull tab, he is yet denied the simple human pleasures of fragile flesh.

The return of Paul Chadwick's award-winning Concrete has ushered in a resurgence of interest in the acclaimed series that Harlan Ellison called ". . . [P]robably the best comic being published today by anyone, anywhere."

Review: Concrete Volume 2: Heights (Concrete #2)

User Review  - Martin - Goodreads

A beautiful comic, in terms of story, design, art, and theme. It's just top-notch. My only complaint is the smaller-than-standard-comic page size is not good for some of Chadwick's rich and dense page lay-outs. Read full review

Review: Concrete Volume 2: Heights (Concrete #2)

User Review  - Ugh - Goodreads

More of Chadwick's warm, witty, inspiring stories. This second volume was just a little less varied than the first, and a couple of the stories didn't really go anywhere, but the collection as a whole was still enjoyable. I'll probably read the third too. Read full review
