Man vs. Rock #1

   If you're looking for something different, look no further than Man vs. Rock.

   It's an odd mix of offbeat humor, B-movies and... I dunno, the weirdest conspiracy theory ever?

   Written by Victor DeTroy and Kevin Bieber, the story tells about the historic battle between humans - and rocks.  (Yep, this is definitely the strangest concept in recent memory.)

   It starts with two cavemen fighting over a buxom cavewoman, and marches forward (goofy jokes littering the historic landscape) into the present day, when one man announces his (incredibly improbable and dangerous) plan to protect humanity - and it looks like his timing is perfect, as the long-awaited attack begins.

   The art is by Jared Lamp, and it's pretty raw, evoking the classic underground comics.

   I'm not crazy about this title - it's just a bit too silly for me - but if you're looking for something that walks a different path in graphic entertainment, you might want to check this out.

Grade: C+
