Animal Man #9 (Spoilers)

Postby Stephen Day » Sat May 05, 2012 11:48 pm

This was such a great issue. I loved everything involving The Shepard and the Bone Yards. I can tell that it's going to be fun seeing him lead Buddy through the Red to the Totems. The stuff with Buddy's family and the villain that's in control of Buddy's body was also really great. I do have to say that I'm increasingly finding the grandmother to be really annoying though.

Then we come to the ending -- John Constatine has finally showed up. We knew he was coming due to the flash forward dream that Buddy had a couple of issues ago, but it was still a cool ending for this issue.

Thank you Troy for the sig

Another very good issue of Animal Man, made even better by the brilliant mention of Grant Morrison in the opening sequence. It’s so weird that that story is still in continuity, weird, but awesome. The rest of this issue is divided up into two parts, the first is Buddy’s strange adventures inside the Red, where he meets a weird goat person and all sorts of other weird shit happens. The other plot is back in the ‘real’ world as Ellen and the kids are on the run from Buddy’s body which has been possessed by the Rot. The Rot-Buddy is really creepy, I’m already scared to see how he attempts to lure Maxine into the Rot. Steve Pugh’s took over full-time on artwork this issue, and he did a good job, but I’ll miss Travel Foreman a lot I think, his style was so unique, it really added a lot to the strange tone of this book. Oh yeah, and at the end of this issue, Constantine shows up, that is great, every single comic book in the world is improved by a guest-appearance from John Constantine.

I'm looking forward to more fully drawn backgrounds by Steve Pugh. That's a nice addition to the book.
