Friday Night Fights: Madman versus Skinless Circus Freak

Frank Einstein had a brief flirtation with a career in the circus. He traveled with the troup on a sea journey, but to say that the circus folk didn’t exactly warm to our snazzily dressed hero would be putting it mildly. Take for example this early encounter with the show’s skinless strongman:

Frank may in fact be something of a scaredy-cat, but the man has some serious moves:

A master of running an interior dialogue, even after getting kneed in the chain, Frank may hate pain but can still take a punch:

Pain, maybe. But never death. He has also apparently mastered some heretofore unknown martial art thatmakes his kicks have defecatory sound effects:

He even manages to lay the final smackdown while pondering some of the deeper questions that plague us on this moving sidewalk we call life:

Madman has it all: depth, agility, charisma. Just like Bahlactus.

Friday March Mad(man)ness: Q & A Part II

Q:

Hey, Frank Einstein (a.k.a Madman), What do you think about the television program Lost? I think it’s really interesting how they were able to weave such a dense, multi-layered story around a bunch of people hanging around an island. But I am a little worried that the creators sometimes try to cram too many amazing things into the story.

 Q:

Oh, I feel better already. Did you see the one where they got taken to a separate, nearby island? And what do you think about the mysterious appearances of Jack’s dead Dad and the otherworldly “Jacob”? Did you see those?

Zowie!!! March Madness, with Madman

Recently I finished reading the Madman Gargantua, a pleasantly hefty volume collecting the adventures of Mike Allred’s ginchiest creation. There will be a full review later,  but suffice it to say it’s about a re-animated hitman named Frank Einstein and his mad scientist pals and it’s overflowing with aliens, robots, time travel, and other awesome wackiness. In honor of this volume, I’ve decided to dedicate the month of March to celebrating it with a little something I’m calling March Mad(man)ness. To kick things off, our hero meets a fan:
