Toxic Revenger

Garbage Man tells the story of an attorney named Richard Morse who discovers that a certain pharmaceutical company has been breaking the law… only to be kidnapped and subjected to experimentation. But while his body ends up being destroyed by a laboratory explosion, what’s left of him combines with the dirt and creates the vengeance-fueled eco-hero (or is that eco-monster), Garbage Man.

The TPB will collect the Garbage Man stories that appeared in Weird Worlds #1 – 6, as well as the Garbage Man stories from My Greatest Adventure #1 – 6. And according to a Tweet from Lopresti on Twitter, that’s not all you can look forward to…
