Let the vivisection begin. Much like I'm pretty sure the majority of comic readers have the only exposure you've had to Animal Man are the three Morrison trades which start out great indeed and was ground breaking in the way it ended(the old I've written myself into a corner and this is how I'm writing myself out of it.) I liked Morrison's animal man but thought the end wasn't very good especially looking back at it.
So we begin with Last Days, The art is the first thing that strikes you Batista who I enjoyed on that JLA arc 4 years ago was pretty alright. What I noticed the most was how he was trying to bring Boland's style to the inside of the comic, this is a great effort but eventually just seems to dull as the issue goes on and Batista just wants to get the issue done, I completely understand his desire to just finish the thing as thats how I was starting to feel.
I'm currently reading a, Lose your powers story in The [spoiler]Incredibles[/spoiler] and it's not like it's an original storyline to begin with there either. Spiderman, Superman they've all dealt with it...oh wait so has Animal man back when Morrison wrote it 20+ years ago. The villain Bloodrage....Is this the one blood name Liefield didn't TM in the 90's? A lame villain with a lame name. Of course he escapes of course he's out for Blood. I did not enjoy this issue and the best part of it was the Bolland cover because really Bolland can do no wrong, other than not doing interiors anymore because he wants to do everything from start to finish on his own, Damn perfectionists.
So yeah I did not like this issue and with that I give it a 4 with points being scored for the Bolland Cover.
