9781593074647: Concrete Volume 3: Fragile Creature (v. 3)

When you're seven-feet plus of walking, talking stone, you're bound to draw the media spotlight, especially when you live in Tinseltown. Concrete's celebrity status is sometimes a pain in the buttress... but it does bring the occasional paycheck gig. When the producer of a low-budget science-fiction film approaches Concrete to use his prodigious strength to help save money on the film's FX budget, the siren call of Hollywood draws Concrete like a moth to a flame... a seven thousand dollar a week flame, that is.

About the Author:

Paul Chadwick is a writer, artist, and creator of the popular comic book Concrete. Chadwick was educated at the ArtCenter College of Design and soon after began storyboarding for film and television. He is known for his work on Another Chance to Get it Right, Concrete, Eerie, Y: The Last Man, and Dark Horse Presents. 

From School Library Journal:

Grade 10 Up–This book continues the story of the mild-mannered speechwriter who, after having his mind transferred to a superpowered, nearly indestructible body, finds his life changed forever. One of the central themes of this series is Concretes efforts to maintain some semblance of a normal life. Here, he hears the call of Hollywood. Faced with extreme budgetary issues, the producers of a fantasy/action film hire him–not as an actor, but to cut their special-effects budget by putting his abilities to use. Concrete spends his days tossing boulders, tearing down sets, and even powering the shell of a car careening through a city street. Much of the action works as wry satirical commentary on the art and fakery of filmdom. Chadwicks visual style is at the same high level as in previous volumes; black-and-white drawings lend an odd sense of realism to the impossible happenings. Originally published in four separate issues, Creature is the longest Concrete story to date. Chadwick makes full use of the extra space, working in layers of satire and mixing in a few subplots with side characters. But the heart of the story–and its main appeal–lies firmly within the well-developed, and ever-evolving, character of Concrete. Through it, the author continues to show what the medium of superhero comics can do in the hands of someone willing to push the boundaries just a little bit.–Matthew L.
