Concrete: The Human Dilemma #5 (of six)
Paul Chadwick
Dark Horse Comics
$3.50 US
**** 1/2 (out of five)

Concrete is moody, uncomfortable and irritable.
While on tour reluctantly promoting a childlessness program (in exchange for a piece of art he’s been searching for years for) the hulking stone body that houses the human mind of Ron Lithgow begins to crack.
After accidentally spewing acidic vomit during an interview and making a hasty exit, Concrete heads home where he discovers his back has cracked completely open to reveal a miniature version of his stone self inside.
After four issues of statistics and reasons making the case for childlessness, creator Paul Chadwick has made Concrete a dad … or mom … or something.
The Human Dilemma highlights what a master storyteller Chadwick is and just gets better with every issue.
