About the Author:

John Whalen is an author and conspiracy historian who has written The 80 Greatest Conspiracies of All Time and Based on a True Story, as well as contributing to DC's Big Book Of The Weird Wild West. Mike Hawthorne is an acclaimed indie comics artist whose work includes The Exterminators, Hysteria, Queen and Country, Terminator 3, Three Days in Europe and Whiskey Dickel.

From Booklist:

Created to pester the Swamp Thing yea-many years back, the Un-Men are surgically created freaks now receiving their second spin-off (after a five-issue comic in 1994) at Whalen and Hawthorne’s enthusiastic hands. Cranius (a face-and-bulging-brain atop a hand, which perches on a supersurgeon body, Otto) and Janus (an extra head and smaller torso sprout from his back) have seized corporate control of Aberrance U.S.A., a city reservation–cum–theme park for the very differently abled that was founded by the late (sort of, it develops) Damien Kane, whom cancer experimentation made elephant-man-like. The citizenry is restless, and after albino agent Kilcrop comes to investigate the murder of dissident Berthold the Amazing Gill-Boy, all hell breaks loose—and just as Cranius as, atop Otto, Dr. Von Schadel is set to launch his surefire-hit reality show, American Freak. A verbal and visual stream of gross-outs, gunplay, gore, grimaces, un-PC guffaws, and heroics executed with an oh-puh-leez! attitude, this is immense over-the-top fun, perfect for a movie with Jim Carrey as everybody except Niko, the one-armed, two-winged love interest. --Ray Olson
