Elephantmen #15

Written by Richard Starkings
Art by Ian Churchill, Boo Cook, and Steve Buccellato

As Richard Starkings promised in his very informative comment to my review of Elephantmen #14, this title looks to be back on track in terms of being a monthly comic again, which is great news. In this issue, we come to a resolution of a long-running story, which started before the jump to the War Toys mini-series.

Strangely, this resolution seems to involve a lot of naked Elephantmen running around a hospital late one night. Thankfully, we didn't have to see all of what Miki saw, especially since we probably wouldn't have responded with the same level of excitement.....

I do have a few questions about what happened in-between scenes in this issue, especially between Sahara and Serenghetti. It doesn't seem likely that he would have just let her go so easily. I'm hoping that a future issue will return to this night, and explain a little more of what happened. I'm also curious to see what happens with Tusk in the near future.

I like the look of Boo Cook over Ian Churchill. It works really well in this issue. There is also a back-up story featuring Vanity Case, which helps to explain her back story, and is nicely drawn by Steve Buccellato. My copy had a mis-print in that the cover was stapled on upside-down (or is that backwards?), but it didn't affect my reading....
