    While many comic book heroes had managed to make good use of the ability to shrink, Robert Scott Carey's experience in doing so has been a nightmare as we'll see in this four issue story!

    Note 2: As this is more of a last minute talkback, with one issue left, I will be having the info for the previous issues in this post.

    Story: Based on Richard Matheson's book, adapted in comic format by Ted Adams
    Artist: Mark Torres

    Summary #1: Richard Matheson’s exploration of shrinking manhood is brought to vivid life in this comic-book adaptation! Scott Carey, reducing 1/7” per day, faces tension big and small as his body continues to shrink away…

    Summary #2: Richard Matheson’s classic tale of horror continues as Scott continues to shrink, leaving him easy prey for predators of the human and feline variety!

    Summary #3: The penultimate chapter of the graphic adaptation of Richard Matheson’s beloved classic novel sees Scott continuing to dwindle further and further away…

    I'll wait for the inevitable trade paperback.

    Understandable as some reviewers felt the pacing isn't the best.

    In my case I found a copy of the first issue by luck just before Issue 3's release last month, and since I had to put it and some other comics on hold, the break isn't as significant to me. Plus, I figured they for a nice Halloween pick up.

    So were you exposed to the original story or it's film adaptation before hand?

    Yep. I'd seen parts of the movie on TV.

    Summary: In the finale to Richard Matheson’s classic story, will Scott continue to shrink away to nothing or find his way back to a world that has let him down (and down)?
