I’ve been fighting off a cold the past few days, but regular posting will resume shortly. In the meantime enjoy this cover from Plastic Man #19 (Vol. 3) by Kyle Baker, from his 20-issue run on the title.
I’m a big fan of Baker’s version of Plas. His talent for grounding absurdity in just enough realism – not to mention his deft touch for satire – allowed him to create an updated version of the character that still stayed true to the best of Jack Cole’s original. More than anyone since Cole, Baker understood the charm and gentle surrealism of Plastic Man.
