Sardonic take on superheroes, their fans and the businessmen behind them. Created by Korporate Comics in a flash of money-grubbing cynicism appalling even by their standards, Angelman's powers (which include empathy and the ability to be a good listener prove less than adequate to deal with the ever-sinister threat of insane plastic surgeon villain Gender-Bender, or for that matter the fickleness of fashion, a disastrous movie adaptation and a desperate 'Reboot' attempt by Korporte. A brilliant satire.
If you search for Nicolas Mahler 's name on Wikipedia you are asked, Do you mean Nicolas Mahut This book should change that. Mahler is an Austrian cartoonist and animator whose work was previously seen in English in "MOME" magazine, as well as two books from Top Shelf Comics: "Van Helsing 's Night Out" and "Lone Racer". He lives, works, and broods in Vienna.
Nicolas Mahler s childishly cute drawings put an adorable face on a satire with a pretty deep cynicism with the superhero comics industry.... Mahler s points about corporate art certainly don t aim for subtlety, but that doesn t make them any less true, and a droll sense of humour keeps things from getting too preachy.--David Berry"
