One of legendary comics writer Grant Morrison's earliest works took a forgotten, almost laughable DC Comics hero, Animal Man, and re-imagined him in a stunning, postmodern series chronicling his bizarre adventures as a second-rate superhero struggling with real-life issues and moral dilemmas.
From one of the greatest storytellers of his generation, Grant Morrison's Animal Man took a forgotten DC Comics character and reimagined him in a groundbreaking, postmodern series that redefined what was possible in superhero comics.
Buddy Baker, a.k.a. the Man with Animal Powers, is a second-rate superhero, devoted father, and animal activist. There isn't much money in the hero game, and with a wife and kids to support, Buddy soon finds himself torn between trying to make a living through traditional super-heroics and getting more deeply involved in the questionably legal world of animal rights activism. But in today's world with real-life issues, who really needs Animal Mans protection? Is it humankind or the animals? Or is it Buddy himself?
