Featuring events that will forever change Concrete and his friends’ lives forever, Human Dilemma marks a triumphant return to Paul Chadwick’s signature character.

Concrete was born when speechwriter Ron Lithgow’s mind was unexpectedly removed
from his body and placed into that of an immense extraterrestrial—one with a rock-like shell for skin. Both challenged and empowered by this life-changing event, Lithgow has adapted to his new life as a man of stone, with numerous adventures shaping his worldview.

Now, seventeen years after his comics debut with then-fledgling publisher Dark Horse,
Lithgow enters into another contemplative conundrum. As the accidental celebrity
Concrete, he is now courted by a high-profile CEO to lend his name to a controversial population control program. While Concrete mulls this generous proposition over with his companion Maureen, his longtime aide Larry Munro mulls over an entirely different sort of proposal that will put his character to the test.

“Human nature is the series’ broader theme—our drives for sex, for symbolic immortality, for family, for acquisition of wealth, for collecting,” writer/artist Paul Chadwick remarked. “Combine those with our inability to deal with threats that aren’t sudden or dramatic, and you have The Human Dilemma in a nutshell.”

Concrete: The Human Dilemma is a six-issue miniseries. Issue #1 arrives on sale Dec. 29, with a retail price of $3.50. Edited by Diana Schutz.
