Now Flex Mentallo, the Man of Muscle Mystery.

Now Flex Mentallo, the Man of Muscle Mystery. I'll just say that both artists shine so much in this volume that you will suffer of temporarily blindness after reading it, only to then gain a 4th dimensional vision of what Super-Heroes and Ideas are about.

Artist Frank Quitely first worked on the Scottish underground comics title Electric Soup in 1990. His big break into American comics was Flex Mentallo, a Doom Patrol spin-off written by fellow Glaswegian Grant Morrison for DC Comics' Vertigo imprint in 1996. He's also worked on JLA, New X-Men, THE SANDMAN: ENDLESS NIGHTS and the opening issues of the hit series BATMAN AND ROBIN.

Flex Mentallo is a comic book character created by writer Grant Morrison and artist Richard Case in 1990, during their run on Doom Patrol. Flex is in part a parody of Charles Atlas' long-running "The Insult that made a Man out of Mac". Flex is in part a parody of Charles Atlas' long-running "The Insult that made a Man out of Mac" advertisements seen in American comics from the past. In 1996, Flex Mentallo appeared in a self-titled, four-issue miniseries written by Morrison and illustrated by Frank Quitely.

Now Flex Mentallo, the Man of Muscle Mystery, returns to investigate the sinister dealings of his former comrade, The Fact, and a mysterious rock star whose connection to Flex may hold the key to saving them both. This fast-paced tale twists super hero tropes, introducing one mind-boggling concept after another in a tour de force of innovative storytelling. Words just wont do it justice, I experienced so many emotions during the book and I know I will be revisiting the story again and again. Eye of the beholder, Harry.

This fast-paced tale twists super-hero tropes, introducing one mind-boggling concept after another. This long-asked-for Vertigo title is collected at last, presenting an early collaboration between writer Grant Morrison and artist Frank Quitely, who would win much acclaim on ALL-STAR SUPERMAN.

Citizen Kane, however, could only be a film; it’s a movie about the love for movies, just like Flex Mentallo is a comic about the love for comics – the only way Flex could be told is through the medium it celebrates, much like Orson Welles’ masterpiece.

this is a hard to understand story that you have to read slowly and 2 to 3 times in order to fully apreciate the master storytelling contained here in. this is what comics are lacking in this day an age. please note, this is absolutelly not for children, it contains mature themes, not that a smart kid could not understand it, it just contains real world stuff that parents try to keep their offspring away from, that being said, if you want to challenge the way you look at comics and celebrate the beauty of what superheroes are all about, this is for you. crafted with the finest ideas these side of the west, seasoned with only the best storytelling directly from London! I'll need to buy a second copy in case this one wears out

I consider this one of the more interesting thought provoking reads of available in this form of media. It is an outside the box viewpoint and will certainly challenge the reader to think of things in a unique way. I certainly recommend it for fans of Grant Morrison, or anyone who has some level of interest in comic books in general.

I wasn't a fan of this story, I like Grant Morrison too, but the story jumped around a lot and was not very easy to follow.
I figured based on the reviews and cover it would be a lot more accessible but did not find it to be. I would recommend a lot of other comics to friends and family before this one.

Nobody ever went looking for the spiritual counterargument to Alan Moore's 'Watchmen' so comic historians brushed right past this masterpiece, content that Moore still had the final word. An unnerving, powerful book, and a comic I strongly believe has the power to save someone's life.

This review will focus on the edition of the book itself rather than the work of Grant Morrison & Frank Quitely, you can find many great reviews about the story itself right here in Amazon. I'll just say that both artists shine so much in this volume that you will suffer of temporarily blindness after reading it, only to then gain a 4th dimensional vision of what Super-Heroes and Ideas are about.

Fortunately, this book is quite a "Deluxe" edition, as DC/Vertigo applied the Fables Deluxe series standard of quality:

- The paper stock is glossy and heavy weight and the printing quality is great.
- The book features a full-color printed hardback under the dustjacket (unlike the rest of DC/Vertigo HCs that have just a shamelessly dark grey presentation. That's right, dark grey, not even true black).
- It's a solid glued binding book. Of course I would have liked a sewn one, but given that this is a slim volume and there's almost no gutter loss, I can totally live with the glued binding.

Other good things to consider:

- The dustjacket features a new illustration by Frank Quitely, really beautiful.
- The original comics were re-coloured for the ocasion. I'm usually against re-colouring, but in this case I'm happy with the results. The original comics were presented in a typical mid-nineties digital colouring fashion that hasn't aged that well. The new colouring is a great enhancement that respects the original intent, but with a much better use of the tools.
- We get a 14-pages section of extras at the end of the book, with sketches and original artwork by Quitely.
- We also get a 4-pages prologue which was previously featured in issues #2 and #4 of the original series as a 2-part article section.
- Finally, the overall design of the book is quite nice and eye-catching.

This is a great opportunity to get this series, it was out of print for legal issues for about 15 years and was nearly impossible to get due to the insane bidding prices. Get this book, OWN IT, because this is the kind of work that you will read once and again and again and again, and then again and again. That's just how multilayered this book is!

Grant Morrison. Frank Quitely. Together one of the most dynamic comic creators alive. Don't believe it? They've far more his than misses and Flex Mentallo, which runs the gamut from touching to bizarre, is a hit. Beautiful art, insane storyline. Don't sit here reading this. Go read Flex Mentallo. Then read WE3, which should have won the Hugo and nebula awards. Go on. Go read and set your mind free.

Grant Morrison has an obnoxious tendency to often make his stories confusing and complex in a manner that does not improve the presentation. As a perfect example of this, see the Invisibles. Flex Mentallo is another such work. The reviewers who did not understand the larger themes of this work correctly point out its seemingly inane complexity. To fully appreciate Flex Mentallo you have to understand that Grant Morrison is commenting on the history of Superhero comics. Specifically, he is critiquing what he believes to have been an overall decline in the medium from the Golden/Silver Age to the Dark Age (think TDKR and Watchmen.) To understand this book, you absolutely have to be widely read in the comic book medium and have a general understanding of the history of comics. I only understood Flex Mentallo because I previously read Grant Morrison's book (yes, a 400 page book with no pictures!) Supergods.

This graphic novel is great if you meet the above criteria. Be forewarned, however, that this is not exactly a leisure read. A full appreciation requires contemplation and possibly a full second reading.

Frank Quitely is the best comic artist ever. This isn't his best work, but he doesn't really put out bad work.
A great twist on the superhero tale. Almost a reconstruction closer in spirit to classic comic tales than modern deconstruction of the superhero genre. It can be dark, too much for young readers but Frank Quitely's art is reminiscent of Herge's Tin Tin and gives it a whimsical quality that suits the story well. The Morrison/Quitely team are well established and here's a great early example of why they work so well together.
