¿Wounded Animals¿ is the first collection of the ongoing comic book series, ¿Elephantmen¿¿a futuristic noir tale of a world populated by anthropomorphic animal-human hybrids originally bred for war, but now attempting to assimilate themselves into mainstream society. Unfolding in a non-linear fashion, ¿Wounded Animals¿ presents a character-focused mystery tale that seamlessly mixes conventions of science-fiction, mystery, existentialist philosophy, and standard comic book genres to form one of the most impressive and thought-provoking comics of the modern era. Writer Richard Starkings populates the world of ¿Elephantmen¿ with a wide range of characters from edgey, hard-boiled hippopotamus detective Hip Flask to the tragic and misunderstood elephant Ebony Hide to the megalomaniacal rhinoceros Obidiah Horn, as well as a cast of varied humans. Through a series of self-contained, but interconnected stories, Starkings deftly tackles issues ranging from discrimination to the horrors of war, but does so in a manner that it avoids being preachy or heavy-handed. Instead, it¿s a wildly entertaining and through provoking series that is one of the finest examples of what the comic book medium is capable of. Between the well-executed writing, the incredibly engaging characters, and the consistently beautiful art, Elephantmen is a can¿t miss comic book series and ¿Wounded Animals¿ is a great place to jump on board.
