Jeff Lemire announced on his blog this morning that his run on Animal Man would be ending as of issue #29, which will also mark the end of the book itself. In his blogpost, Lemire stated that he felt the Baker family's story had reached its natural conclusion, and that Animal Man would begin the next chapter of his life in the pages of Lemire's Justice League Canada series. Lemire also announced that he'd be drawing the bulk of Animal Man #29 as well, with Travel Foreman providing some additional pages.
Animal Man was one of the early stars of the New 52, along with fellow Vertigo transplant Swamp Thing. Although both series suffered during the Rotworld crossover, Animal Man picked up additional acclaim while dealing with the aftermath of that event, which saw Buddy Baker's son, Cliff, die while saving his father. Sales on the book have been poor as of late, with last month's issue barely breaking 20,000 sales.
