All too often I’m reminded of comics from notable creators that were completely off my radar. Fortunately, these titles end up coming back around with some great new collections to give me a chance to check them out. Such is the case with Gigantic from writer Rick Remender and artist Eric Nguyen, which was first published ten years ago. Dark Horse Comics has announced a new deluxe oversized library edition collecting the full five issue series this November.
Gigantic is a twist on the cult classic film, The Truman Show where a brainwashed alien superhero is deposited on Earth as the unwitting star of an intrusive, around-the-clock television program. It’s being filmed without his knowledge while a giant, armored invader attacks San Francisco. I’m so in.
The Gigantic Library Edition hardcover is set for release on November 28th, 2018 and is available for pre-order at your local comic shop, book stores, and Amazon. It is a 136-page collection retailing for $24.99.
