Concrete Strange Armor TPB (1998 Dark Horse) comic books
1st printing. Concrete: Strange Armor (1997) #1-5. Story and art by PAUL CHADWICK. A troubled man seeking spiritual renewal in the wilderness experiences a wholly unexpected rebirth-as a walking monolith, half a ton of animate stone able to perform astonishing feats of strength and endurance but forever denied many of life's fundamental pleasures. As Concrete, Ronald Lithgow becomes an overnight celebrity and the focus of dark government operatives desperate to keep the secret of his metamorphosis from the public. Concrete must struggle with the loss of his humanity while discovering, perhaps for the first time, what it truly means to be human. ? Paul Chadwick's award-winning Concrete has been called 'the best comic being published by anyone, anywhere,' and Strange Armor is the definitive origin story of one of the most original and moving characters in all of graphic fiction. Softcover, 208 pages, B&W. Softcover, PC/PB&W. NOTE: See also Concrete TPB (2005) Vol. 6 "Strange Armor!" Cover price $16.95.
