Mike Allred on MADMAN


by Zack Smith

We spoke to Mike Allred last fall at the launch of his “Madman in Space” storyline from Image’s Madman Atomic Comics, which just concluded last week with issue #7. If you’ve been reading (SPOILER ALERT) you now know that Madman’s longtime girlfriend Joe has been merged with his other love interest It Girl, forming “Luna Joe”…and that Madman has a whole new lease on life.

Allred couldn’t wait to talk about this new direction from the character, starting in issue #8. In addition to a special preview, we got an understanding of what led the character to this turning point…and where things go from here?
