Flex Mentallo Returns!

[From Comics Alliance]
Arguably the most crucial Grant Morrison work presently out-of-print, Flex Mentallo will finally be made available in a deluxe hardcover volume this Fall courtesy of original publisher Vertigo. Spun-out of Morrison's run on Doom Patrol and featuring artwork by frequent collaborator Frank Quitely, 1996's four-issue Flex Mentallo parodied the ubiquitous Charles Atlas ads seen in comic books for years, where scrawny young boys were encouraged to purchase Atlas products to help them bulk up to repel bullies and attract women. Vertigo ran afoul of the Charles Atlas company, and a reprint seemed until now an impossibility.
This is truly great stuff. I've got the original mini-series and have been hanging on to them since it looked doubtful a collection would ever be released. If you like Grant's stuff, check this out when it comes out in the Fall. (Mike)
