The second page of the story elicited an oral, "Whaaaaaaaaaaa....?!" Page 5-ish made one of the most disturbing paraphilias a little less repugnant, at least for the purposes of this story; if you're tempted to put it down after page 2, if you like the genre try just a couple more pages. (This is not to say that the story was not disturbing or somehow all right or acceptable in any healthy person's view.) Keyword is story, follow that up with fictitious, and a very dark view of a dystopian future (whether ours or a parallel evolution) has been rendered. Complete with pictures. Pictures I don't need to see again...

Underneath it is the story of a man who knows he can be, and wants to be better. He tries. He gives up. It's because of this pattern of quitting his career at the end of the story so ironic (I won't reveal it here, don't want to leave spoilers).

Yes, as many reviews of the graphic novel have mentioned, misogyny runs through the course of the story, both in plot and picture. However, in the case of Meathouse Man, I believe that it was purposefully included to tell the story and cast a proper light on the bleakness of the world of the protagonist. I have railed against authors in previous reviews because of blatant mysogyny screaming at me from the pages. I feel you can tell when the personal beliefs or views of writer come blasting through their prose vs. when a message is being sent. I wasn't offended by the mysogyny in Meathouse Man because it felt like it was being used as a device not only of description, but of warning - to tell us to watch out where things could be going.
