Animal Man #8 (I've got this Spoilers)

Postby Punchy » Sun Apr 08, 2012 8:03 am

Wow, this issue was all kinds of fucked up. Maxine tries to stop a bunch of evil Rot-Dogs, is killed, but survives through transferring her mind into a Fox and transforming the Fox-body into her body. Messed up, and no wonder Grandma got pissed. It’s really interesting how powerful Maxine is now, and worrying, a little girl shouldn’t really have that kind of power. Also cool in this issue was Buddy really cutting loose and ripping those dogs to bits, it was great to see what is usually a light-hearted character just snap and become a stone-cold bad-ass. Of course at the end he’s defeated by the Rot-monsters and it looks like he’s been turned himself. Uh-oh. I wonder when it is that the mooted crossover with Swamp Thing is going to happen, it feels like the events in both books are big enough to merit it, which makes me wonder how big the scale will be when the two books do finally meet? Huge!

I agree about the stuff surrounding Maxine, that was just plain creepy. That final page was definitely an, "oh crap" moment.

I'm also really excited about the upcoming crossover. I can't wait to see the two main characters interact.

Thank you Troy for the sig

Somebody please kill that annoying grandmother.

I love this book. Much like Swamp Thing it took a little for me to get into it but now I cant help but love it. Its just awesome. The art is amazing as well. Maxine is creepy as all hell and I love it.

I was just saying the other day that what comic books don't have nearly enough of are light-hearted characters turned into stone-cold bad-asses.

To be fair, though, Animal Man hasn't really been a light-hearted character since Morrison's run, and that was twenty years ago now.

Has his whole family been murdered by Grant Morrison yet? If not then it's still lighter and fluffier than it used to be.
