Paul Chadwick comic
Magdin, prince of a mythical European realm, has a vision-a vision his father, the King, turns into military strategy. Once thought a simpleton, Magdin is hailed as a seer, but no one realizes that his visions are merely poetic retellings of history lessons learned from his tutor. But in a land torn by war and religious bigotry, a secret such as this cannot be kept for long... and soon Magdin is a critical pawn in a game of savage political intrigue.
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 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 hitchhiking trip. • "Probably the best comic being published today by anyone, anywhere.",Harlan Ellison • Paul Chadwick's Concrete has won five Eisner Awards and three Harvey Awards. • One of GQ's "20 Graphic Novels You Should Read."
Being a celebrity has its benefits . . . and its costs. Due to his status as the world's most unusual travel writer-being a thousand pounds of walking, talking rock will do that-Concrete is approached by a group of radical eco-warriors to see firsthand and write about their efforts to save old-growth forest. What begins as a lark soon turns into a harrowing struggle, and Concrete must decide whether to dispassionately observe or to join these people who would risk anything, even life itself, to save the planet. Called "the best comic being published by anyone, anywhere,"Paul Chadwick's critically acclaimed Concrete is at once rousing fantasy and grounded reality, as thought-provoking and challenging as it is entertaining.

Formerly Ronald Lithgow, Senate aide, speechwriter, and the least dynamic of men.
