    1. Okay so superheroes, right? I mean can no one make this genre funny? This looks like a task for DON SIMPSON. In a world where people line up to masticate Stan Lee's wrinkly nuts, one man and only one man, strikes a blow for humorists everywhere. Armed with premise so close to what its parodying there were acres of cease and desist orders littering the faceless side of Mount Rushmore, Don Simpson has struck a blow for comedy. Is the story the most original heck no, but that's the point. (The illu [...]

    2. Don Simpson's groovy artwork recalls prime-period MAD Magazine and prefigures the Maxx (while bearing at least a passing resemblance to Dave Sim's Cerebus). Megaton Man isn't exactly a cult classic--the jokes are only occasionally funny and the narrative structure is weak--but it's a shame Simpson (who is now a Ph.D. student at Pitt) missed out on the kind of screw-you money that Tick creator Ben Edlund made.

    3. Simpson is a bit of a footnote in the history of comics and rightly so. As moribund as the entire super hero genre had become, and as welcome as it was that it was being so ably deconstructed (and lovingly reconstructed as more serious literature for more serious times) by folks like Frank Miller, Howard Chaykin and others, those efforts were not aided by the likes of such broad, over-the-top and ultimately boring satire.

    4. Meh. At it's best, this is a campy parody of '80s Marvel comics. Unfortunately, it spends most of its time caught up in the very thing it's trying to parody.
