Elephantmen

 ELEP   (Image, 2006–Present)

™ and ©2006 Image Comics

Ebenezer Hide—Ebony for short—is just a guy trying to survive in the Santa Monica of 2259. Trouble is, he’s an Elephantman, a half elephant, half human DNA mix, bred for brutal warfare. Once a fierce warrior tormented by a conscience, now all Ebony wants is to fit in with human society. That’s tough to do when you’re bred for killing, even with a heart of gold.

From the world of Hippopotamus P.I. Hip Flask, Elephantmen is the creation of comic book letterer and Comicraft founder Richard Starkings. The characters were originally designed as advertising concept art for comic book fonts. Starkings took those creations, gave them a back story, and placed them in his “pulp science fiction” world. Along the way, he manages to tell fascinating stories about prejudice, religion and politics. Elephantmen is good stuff.
