Animal Man #4 (Hello. Mommy. Spoilers)

Postby Punchy » Sat Dec 10, 2011 11:05 am

Maybe I’m making a mistake in reading this book and Swamp Thing back to back? They are both very good, but the history lesson we got in this issue about ‘The Rot’ was very similar to the one we got in this week’s Swamp Thing. I know they are very connected, and that connection was at it’s most explicit this issue with Alec Holland getting a name-check, but I do feel like they’re repeating themselves a bit. But enough of that, I’m sure there are some people who are only reading one of them, and they need that exposition. This was another strong issue, Travel Foreman’s art was brilliant once again, his style is just so weird, and as I’ve said before, nobody in comics draws a better amorphous blob of tissue. I like the introduction of Socks/Ignatius as an advisor for Maxine, every book could use a talking cat. Well, except maybe Scalped. Oh yeah, and was anyone else surprised when Maxine said she was 4? She looks way older than that! Some kind of reverse Franklin Richards-disease?

I still think Foreman is the weakest part of this book.

Lemire has really gotten the shit end of the stick with the art on his books at DC.. the guy on Frankenstein is shitty too (although I did like him when he did Unknown Soldier :smt102 )

This is only slightly not as good as Swamp Thing. Both are excellent, though, and I love the interconnectedness.

Hmmmm...I love this book but if it is as interconnected with Swamp Thing as everyone says, then I may need to go back and pick up Swamp Thing.

I would recommend it. Swamp Thing is a great read, and there are plenty of cross-over concepts with Animal Man. My understanding is that Lemire and Snyder are working pretty closely together on these books.
