    Concrete TPB (2005-2006 Dark Horse) 1-1ST

    Volume 1 - 1st printing. "Depths!" Collects Concrete (1987) #1-5. Story and art by PAUL CHADWICK. Part man, part...rock? Over seven feet tall and weighing over a thousand pounds, he is known as Concrete but is in reality the mind of one Ronald Lithgow, trapped inside a shell of stone, a body that allows him to walk unaided on the ocean's floor or survive the crush of a thousand tons of rubble in a collapsed mineshaft...but prevents him from feeling the touch of a human hand. These stories of Concrete are as rich and satisfying as any in comics: funny, heartbreaking, and singularly human. Depths, the first in a series of new collections collecting the classic early Concrete stories along with never-before-collected short stories, includes the Eisner-nominated "Orange Glow" and "Vagabond," Paul Chadwick's autobiographical account of a cross-country hitchiking trip. ? Paul Chadwick's Concrete has won five Eisner Awards and three Harvey Awards. Softcover, 208 pages, 6-in. x 9-in., B&W. Cover price $12.95.

    Volume 2 - 1st printing. "Heights!" Collects Concrete (1987) #6-10, Concrete Color Special (1989), and more. Story and art by PAUL CHADWICK. Big as a boulder and strong as an ox, he's Concrete, seven-feet of stony celebrity.

Possessing powers allowing him to scale the highest mountain unaided or peel back the roof of a car like a pull tab, he is yet denied the simple human pleasures of fragile flesh.

When you're seven-feet plus of walking, talking stone, you're bound to draw the media spotlight, especially when you live in Tinseltown.

The return of Paul Chadwick's award-winning Concrete has ushered in a resurgence of interest in the acclaimed series, and Killer Smile is Chadwick's darkest Concrete work, a harrowing tale Frank Miller called 'edge-of-your-seat suspense, full of unpredictable twists and turns.'

    Volume 5 - 1st printing. "Think Like a Mountain!" Collects Concrete: Think Like a Mountain (1996) #1-6. Story and art by PAUL CHADWICK. Celebrity has its benefits...and its costs. Due to his status as the world's most unusual travel writer - being a thousand pounds of walking, talking rock will do that - Concrete is approached by a group of radical eco-warriors to see firsthand and write about their efforts to save old-growth forest. What begins as a lark soon turns into a harrowing struggle, and Concrete must decide whether to dispassionately observe or to join these people who would risk anything, even life itself, to save the planet. Called "the best comic being published by anyone, anywhere," Paul Chadwick's critically acclaimed Concrete is at once rousing fantasy and grounded reality, as thought-provoking and challenging as it is entertaining. Think Like a Mountain collects the 1996 Parents' Choice Award winning series along with bonus short stories, some collected here for the first time. Softcover, 208 pages, 6-in. x 9-in., B&W.

    Volume 6 - 1st printing. "Strange Armor!" Collects 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.

Former speechwriter Ron Lithgow returns as the title character in 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. ? Chadwick was awarded the 2005 Eisner Award for Best Writer/Artist for this series! Softcover, 208 pages, 6-in. x 9-in., B&W. Cover price $12.95.
