Animal Man, one of the more cerebral books in ‘The New 52′, continues to remain strong as one of the leading comic book titles from DC Comics.
In the latest issue, we continue to follow Buddy Baker and his daughter Maxine as they fight the evil manifestations belonging to The Rot, the invasive enemy that threatens The Red. At the end of issue #3, we find that Buddy and Maxine are in the throws of battle against three agents of The Rot within the surreal realm known as The Red. This grisly encounter coincides with the events in the real world where Buddy Baker’s wife and his son are unknowingly taken captive by an agent of The Rot, disguised as a friendly face.
Artist Steve Pugh will be returning to illustrate on DC Comics’ Animal Man, back for the first time since 1995 when it was a shining Vertigo title. Steve Pugh originally illustrated Animal Man (issues #46, 51-57, 61-63, 66-70, 72-73, 75-76, 78-79) in the early 1990s, finishing his last issue in 1995.
Now, beginning in March, Pugh will be joining writer Jeff Lemire and series regular Travel Foreman who has been doing an incredible job with the artwork.
