Synopsis: Ebony Hide is an Elephantman, a super-human created to destroy humanity. When he meets a small girl, his world changes, and he is haunted by the past he cannot escape.

Wow, the art here is detailed like you wouldnít believe. It looks like the artist didnít want to go overboard. He put just the right touch here. Sometimes an art can be good, but off the wall. This art is actually quite stunning. Iíd recommend this story for the art alone, probably. It doesnít clutter. Itís striking in the way it works wonders on the eye. Iíd love to shake the hand of the man who drew it. He seems sure of his hand. Thatís the best part of it.

The story is quite unique. Whether or not I like it, I have to admit itís pretty strange. Iíll admit the story of genetically-altered human beings is far from new. However, using animals is a nice touch. I can only think of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles when it comes to using genetically-altered animals as part of a storyline, and doing it well. Elephantmen jumps out at me because it stands alone on that concept. More stories should take a leap into creativity, rather than rehashing the same old clichťs ad nausea.

Elephantmen has got its own fan base. Many people really like it. I am one of them. The pacing works well, though it could be better. A complaint I have is sometimes the panels seem cluttered. It doesnít flow well many times. It would be best for the story to take itís time. It seems to be rushing way too often. I find myself confused at places. Thankfully, it doesnít happen often. I recommend this for those desiring something new in comics without it being new for the sake of being new.
