Humongous Man

 HUMV   (Alternative, 1997-1998)

™ and ©1997 Ikon Press

He has a big chest, a tiny head, dramatic hair, and no memory when he wakes up in a mansion with a spandex costume in the wardrobe and a butler in the hall. But someone in the corrupt city of Perfopolis needs Humongous Man, and he’s got to come to grips with himself before the agents of C.R.A.P. come calling.

The purple dialog is most likely intended as satire, and the extended silent transitions are an homage to the creators’ influences of Cerebus and European comics. Several pages of prose providing needed background could have been put to better use if assimilated into the spare story of the comic itself, replacing excessive pages of empty action.

Creators Jim Harrison and Dan Stepp launched this as a strip for the University of Florida’s student newspaper in the late 1980s. The title left Alternative Press after four issues for the world of self-publishing.
