Monster & Madman #2 is the latest installment of the three-issue mini-series by writer Steve Niles and illustrator Damien Worm. When a monster and a madman cross paths, will anyone truly be safe?

As the Monster finds himself in a city filled with people – and unsure of how he got there – he is faced with the fact that no matter how many living souls may be nearby, he’ll always be alone. When a doctor who goes by the name of John Moore finds him wandering about, he takes the Monster in, revealing that it was he who found him washed ashore. As the doctor’s curiosity regarding his guest’s physical state grows and unable to shake his own wariness about the doctor’s demeanor, the Monster becomes doubtful as to whether or not he should remain in the man’s care; however, when Doctor Moore offers the Monster a deal, his advances become a little difficult to refuse.

So, there’s a review in here, promise, and it’s going to be about the new collection from 215ink called Ignition Vol. 1. The lede is just, as people who call writing a profession say, buried. First, I need a moment to qualify what I mean and give a frame of reference. So, sorry, but: you can always circumvent that by skipping to the end if you’d like.
