Reseña del editor
Part man, part...rock? Over seven feet tall and weighing over a thousand pounds, he is known as Concrete but is in reality the mind of one Ronald Lithgow, trapped inside a shell of stone, a body that allows him to walk unaided on the ocean's floor or survive the crush of a thousand tons of rubble in a collapsed mineshaft...but prevents him from feeling the touch of a human hand. These stories of Concrete are as rich and satisfying as any in comics: funny, heartbreaking, and singularly human. Depths, the first in a series of new collections reprinting the classic early Concrete stories along with never-before-collected short stories, includes the Eisner-nominated "Orange Glow" and "Vagabond," Paul Chadwick's autobiographical account of a cross-country hitchiking trip.

Concrete was one of the first comics I read that used a more biographical or "slice of life" narrative. By slice of life I mean a plausible blend of bizarre qualities (aliens abducting a man and converting him into a mineral juggernaut) with everyday events (camping, having a real job, struggling with life). In one episode Concrete goes sailing with his friends. But what could be a typical story becomes bizarre due to Concrete's unusual position in the world. The mundane becomes intriguing. Ultimately it's this unique blend of an unlikely superhero with day-to-day activities that give this book its appeal. If Concrete is involved almost anything becomes an adventure.
Another surprise is that I enjoyed this series more the second time. It might be that in my younger days I thought of myself as being immuned to the vicissitudes of life. Now I identify more strongly with the Concrete mythology. Concrete's invulnerability to practically everything is a sharp contrast to my middle-aged existence. Since I now wear glasses I envy his "telescopic owl vision". Since he is nearly indestructible I envy his immunity to pain. In short, the fantasy is more potent since I've accumulated and acknowledged a few weaknesses.
Suffice it to say I've really enjoyed revisiting these stories. Hour for hour there is a lot of entertainment here. I found my eyes lingering over every page and the text is dense and rich, giving you a lot to think about. A recent comic I enjoyed was Twenty-Thousand Leagues under the Sea, but I read it in about an hour or so. Not so with this volume. I read every night before bed and it's really been a great diversion. I plan to get the second volume soon, Concrete #2: Heights , and will probably reread the entire series. Since there are seven in the series I have a lot of entertainment ahead of me!
