Garbage Man

We rated this book:


It was ambition that got Richard Morse the most lucrative clients, but after discovering that Titan Pharmaceuticals was involved in the illegal dumping of chemicals and questionable research practices, it was his morals that got him in trouble. To keep him quiet, Richard became Titan’s next test subject. After an explosion at the lab, Richard’s remains mixed with the toxic waste. What he became could no longer be called man. With revenge on his mind, he is on a mission to take out the trash.

Prolific comic book artist Aaron Lopresti has rereleased Garbage Man. First published for DC Comics in the “Weird Worlds” and “My Greatest Adventure” anthologies, Lopresti turned to Dark Horse Books to give his creation its own platform. Many superheroes are borne out of the crisis of the day. Lopresti’s creature is a product of rampant pollution and corporate corruption. He also touches on topics of domestic abuse and homelessness, using his platform to bring attention to today’s issues. The artwork is just as dark as the subject matter but no less spectacular. As an author and primary artist, Lopresti’s creativity is apparent. Garbage Man is just the monster needed to clean up the problems of today.
