"Issue #4 of the new Elephantmen comiXology Original series – Elephantmen 2261: The Death of Shorty. Elephantmen has been described by J.J. Abrams as "An Awesome and Unexpected Story. You Must Check it out!" and lauded by Andy Serkis as "Bold, Mythic and heartbreakingly cool, Starkings' universe is a breed apart!"

Elephantmen are human/animal hybrids designed to fight a war. But the war is over, and now they live among us. Debuting nearly 15 years and 80 issues ago from Image Comics, Elephantmen returns here with a new jumping on point. This all-new story is a whodunnit that draws our heroes, Hip Flask and Jack Farrell, into the curious death of an Elephantman known to his friends as "Shorty".

Part of the comiXology Originals line of exclusive digital content only available on comiXology and Kindle. This title will be available as part of comiXology Unlimited, Kindle Unlimited and Prime Reading on release."
