Jeff Lemire and Steve Pugh have done amazing things with Animal Man, and this trade paperback is no exception! While I found the second volume rather dull, this installment makes up for all of that! We're treated to an intense story with odd, creepy art that I just can't help but love. This is really a comic unlike any other I've ever seen, and worth reading for those who have followed Buddy Baker's adventures thus far.
