Product Description

Review

Praise for Grant Morrison: "[Grant Morrison is] comics's high shaman."--"Washington Post" "[A] comic legend."--"Rolling Stone"

About the Author

Grant Morrison has been working with DC Comics for more than twenty years, beginning his American career with acclaimed runs on ANIMAL MAN, DOOM PATROL and the ARKHAM ASYLUM graphic novel. Since then, he has written such best-selling series as JLA, BATMAN and New X-Men, as well as his creator-owned titles such as THE INVISIBLES, SEAGUY, THE FILTH and WE3. He has been hard at work expanding the DC Universe in titles ranging from the Eisner-Award winning titles SEVEN SOLDIERS and ALL STAR SUPERMAN, to the weekly comic 52 to, most recently, the ground-breaking crossover FINAL CRISIS. In his secret identity, Morrison is a "counterculture" spokesperson, a musician, an award-winning playwright and a chaos magician. He lives and works between Los Angeles and his homes in Scotland.

This volume collects all of Grant Morrisons seminal run on Animal Man. Making a character that was once a bit of a one trick joke into an interesting well rounded story.

The stories play around with ideas of continuity and rebooting in the world of comic books and the relationship between the protagonists and the writers. As the book goes on, it's as much a story about comic books as it is a comic book itself.

The Omnibus edition here is a nice chunky hardback, even though the book is pretty heavy and thick the spine holds up well. While not the most comfortable to read at times due to the sheer heft, the bindings are good so the volume should hold up to repeat viewing.

I would recommend this volume to any fan of comics, the writing goes way beyond simple cape adventures and is thought provoking. The art style by todays standards may seem a little old fashioned but it's of its time.

It's fantastic to see DC comics releasing historic runs like this in the big all in one format, here's hoping its a trend they continue.

Its great! - epic, wonderful story telling, a hefty tome of a book printed on excellent quality paper with a slight texture to the rugged dust cover. my only gripe is that as usual with a DC omnibus the binding is VERY tight, this is not as large a book as some others so the tight binding didn't distract from the overall experience as much as it could have done.

it collects all 26 issues of Grant Morrisons run and its a GREAT story, if you like your super hero stories with a dash of darkness and oddity.

It's really great. I'm going to let it simmer in my subconscious for a few months then read it again, I'm sure it will be even better the second time around - and that's the best complement i can really give an epic read like this. i want to read it again :)

** WARNING: Some spoilers below **

Grant Morrison is a very smart man, he tells stories in a smart way. This story is very smart, it is not a standard cape and mask battle romp or a Batman style detective story. Contrary to popular opinion its not even a social commentary on animal rights. Animal Man is the catalyst that the writer uses to tell a story about the nature of reality as perceived by comic book characters themselves and it really creeps up on you. at the starts your reading about a 'new to this stuff' super hero and by the end your reading about a seasoned hero who has been knee deep in strangeness for his whole life, a man who would do anything for his family and in the end goes in search of answers in places that you just don't expect.

Grant Morrison's Animal Man run is brilliant in terms of content, but it is the book format of the hard back omnibus which I wanted to write about. I have had issues with DC's omnibus editions in the past. The binding is almost always poor, and the readability of the books suffers as a consequence. This omnibus, whilst not up to the standard of Marvel's omnibuses, is nevertheless very good. This could well be down to the relatively short length- it is half as long as the impossible to handle Invisibles omnibus. The book is very well presented, in particular the cover hidden behind the dust cover, but more importantly is easy to read and handle once you have given the binding a bit of working to loosen it up.

Perhaps one of the best runs on an American cape comic.

This was the book that started it all for me, the comic that finally drew me into capes and the world of the big two.
Grant Morrison does an absolutely astounding job at writing Buddy and his family and this is one run that you just can't miss. Issue #5 is perhaps one of the best single issues of a comic in my opinion.
The run spans for 26 issues but will pass you in a blink of the eyes, There can be a bit of a slump in the middle for an issue or two when Morrison tries something a little different, but the pace picks right back up. The pacing and story overall are a million miles ahead of Jeff Lemire's current run on Animal Man and is much more focused and rewarding.

A comic filled with many magic, unforgettable moments and a must have for fans of Animal Man and Vertigo in the 80's & 90's. If you enjoy this, I can only continue to recommend the Animal Man trades that DC are releasing with Milligan's run.

If you're unsure about picking it up, give it a go. If you don't like it, donate it to a library or charity and maybe you too can kickstart someone's journey into comics.
