Elephant Man: “Come for the art, stay for the derangement”
“Come for the art, stay for the derangement, and release most notions of “plotting.”
“Cheerfully grotesque. Has its sweetly offensive moments.”
And this one just in!
You’d think turning John Merrick — aka the severely deformed, so-called Elephant Man — into a comic-book character would be tasteless. And in Greg Houston’s ELEPHANT MAN, it certainly is. But it’s also fairly hilarious, so consider some slack cut.”
