9781593074623: Concrete Volume 7: The Human Dilemma (Concrete (Graphic Novels))

Life as Concrete is about to change forever.

Former speechwriter Ron Lithgow returns as the title character of Paul Chadwick's critically acclaimed and award-winning miniseries. Trapped in an alien's rock-hard body, Lithgow is an accidental celebrity whose high profile is being courted by a front-page CEO. Though Concrete believes overpopulation to be an important issue, does he want to become the spokesperson for a controversial population control program? While Concrete mulls this generous proposition over with his biologist, Maureen, his longtime aide Larry Munro mulls over an entirely different sort of proposal. Life and violent death take center stage in this compelling new collection from an industry-renowned creative master, and the subject of overpopulation is given the trademark thoughtful exploration that Chadwick fans have come to expect.

From Booklist:

Chadwick has frequently used his superhero character Concrete, a contemplative soul transplanted into a rocklike body, to comment on social issues. Here an idealistic CEO hires Concrete, whose transformation has gained him minor-celebrity status, to publicize a controversial population-control program designed to make childlessness chic by paying young couples who agree to sterilization. It's less ponderous than it sounds. Concrete's charge to publicize the project on talk shows provides a natural pretext for discussing the issue and allowing both sides their say, and there's wry irony in a spokesperson for sterilization who lacks genitalia. The most compelling sequences, however, take place on the edges of the main story line. Concrete's relationship with Maureen Vonnegut, the biologist assigned by the government to study him, takes an unexpected but long-developing turn, and his assistant Larry Munro pays the price for neglecting population-control measures. As always, Chadwick's artwork is as enticing as the script. His delicate yet assured line is sensuous or bold as needed, and his compositions are consistently interesting yet always advance the story. Gordon Flagg
