Being a celebrity has its benefits…and its costs. Due to his status as the world’s most unusual travel writer—being a thousand pounds of walking, talking rock will do that—Concrete is approached by a group of radical ecowarriors to see firsthand and write about their efforts to save old-growth forest. What begins as a lark soon turns into a harrowing struggle, and Concrete must decide whether to dispassionately observe or to join these people who would risk anything, even life itself, to save the planet.

Called “the best comic being published by anyone, anywhere,” Paul Chadwick’s critically acclaimed Concrete is at once rousing fantasy and grounded reality, as thought provoking and challenging as it is entertaining. Think Like a Mountain collects the 1996 Parents’ Choice Award-winning series, along with bonus short stories, some collected here for the first time.
