Richard Matheson’s The Shrinking Man #1 adapted by Ted Adams and Mark Torres is a great tribute to Ant-Man’s first comic appearance in Tales to Astonish and is big enough to stand out as something more than a tribute.

The story lives up to the comic’s title as it tells of a man who is shrinking down to the size of an ant. Once you get past how familiar this comic feels, you’re in for a comic that sets itself apart from Ant-Man’s first appearance in Tales to Astonish. Ted Adams makes it clear with his writing that the whole issue is full of suspense. As you progress through the comic, you’ll actually feel the stress that’s happening as the characters and story develop which is a sign that this is a great read.

Mark Torres’ artwork definitely blends well with the overall feel of the comic as he delivers the characters with well done expressions and his use of inking. Literally every panel and set scene is done well as this shows how much an artist can greatly reinforce writing. As for Tomi Varga’s coloring, it’s simple usage of warm colors that also supports Torres’ artwork well.

 

The Shrinking Man #1 is definitely a great read for Ant-Man fans or anyone who likes stories with great suspense. You’ll really feel the stress as the story progresses as the writing and the artwork delivers really well and as you read along and eventually get to the end, the story gets even more stressful as the ending leaves you wanting to wait for the next issue.
