Product description

Review

"Travel Foreman's art is innovative and excellently creepy when it needs to be, and will hopefully get a lot of eyes as Lemire's everyman hero makes his mark in the new DC Universe." - USA Today

"A profound meditation on consumer culture and the economy of disposability." - PopMatters

"Animal Man has the sensational Jeff Lemire at the helm." - Entertainment Weekly

"A strange, dark fantasy book with unpredictable plots and fantastic art." - Complex Magazine

"Haunting...Travel Foreman provides sleek, meticulous art that grounds the book in reality, and he uses inventive page layouts during the scenes in the Baker home to create visual excitement where the situations are less fantastic...Animal Man is just a cool, odd character, grounded in the real world but still very much a superhero." - The Onion AV Club

"I don't want to overhype it, but if you don't love it from the very first page, you're not human." - MTV Geek

"The best thing to come out of the DC relaunch. Absolutely knocked it out of the park...Gold stars for the creative team." - io9

"Visceral and intriguing." - SFX

"This book sets the benchmark." - Comic Book Resources

"A great introduction to Animal Man for new readers, while also giving long-time fans something fresh to be excited about." - IGN

"The character Jeff was meant to write. Lemire and Foreman did an amazing job." - Ain't It Cool News
"Well-crafted and bold." - iFanboy, Pick of the Week

"Animal Man is one you can't pass up." - Bloody Disgusting, Pick of the Week
