Don Simpson's Megaton Man Volume 1
by : Don Simpson
This is an outrageous and loony satire of the superhero genre. The origins of Megaton Man are shrouded in mystery. Some say he was bitten by a radioactive frog, others that he was a guinea pig in a top secret government megasoldier program. Regardless, one-time normal civilian Trent Phloog now has superpowers and is Megaton Man! Armed with a highly developed sense of justice, superhumanly developed biceps, and a brain the size of a pea, Megaton Man strides through the city determined to bring evildoers to task regardless of the chaos he causes. With an introduction by Al Franken, United States Senator from Minnesota and NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author of LIES AND THE LYING LIARS WHO TELL THEM. Don Simpson began Megaton Man in the 1980s as a comic book series satirizing the superhero genre; it later evolved into an online series. His work has also appeared in numerous comics and trade editions, including his adaptation of the original King Kong and his sf series Border Worlds.
