This book looks totally disgusting… but in a good way. Travel Foreman’s art is something that was a little bit polarising in the reviews of #1, some liked it, others didn’t, but after this issue I don’t think there can be any doubt that the guy is perfect for this book, I can’t imagine any other artist drawing the grotesque amorphous blob-animal hybrids that Lemire put into this issue as well as Foreman, it’s just so creepy and great to look at. The story itself isn’t bad either! I’m kind of conflicted about the retcon to A-Man’s origin, that he wasn’t actually abducted by aliens, but I do like how ‘The Red’ rationalised it by using the examples of Superman and Green Lantern’s origins, Aliens were the big deal back then, so Buddy would be more likely to accept it. The reveal that Maxine is the true ‘Avatar’ was also interesting, and it was great to see some more subtle hints of links between this book and Swamp Thing, I’m really liking how the ‘Vertigo’ books are building their own little continuity.
