**** (out of five)

We can all learn something from Paul Chadwick.
Well, not from the writer/artist personally, but from his incredibly well researched and engrossing Concrete stories.
In this second recently repackaged collection of the adventures of Ron Lithgow, a man whose mind is trapped in a hulking stone body, readers are taken from the simplicity of a family farm to the top of the world.
Oh, and Concrete grows some really impressive horns (but that’s neither here nor there).
Strong characters and a thoughtful internal monologue by Concrete are two of the continuing strengths of this title, but learning a little bit about the hows and whys on a farm or the subtleties of an impressively detailed expedition through Nepal and up Mount Everest make it even more gripping.
Heights is truly a work with great depths.
