But I say if Gaiman s The Sandman is number 1 then Animal Man is number 2or 15But I haven t finished Morrison s Invisibles yet and it s a tight race Okay So now we ve hit the apex of weird for Morrison s series The man takes the concept of breaking the fourth wall and laughs at it Wr If there s one thing one plot The Man Without a Face element that Morrison is famous for it s here in the on the page meeting of Animal Man and Grant Morrison Everything it seems was working towards that moment when the fourth wall abruptly ceased toxist ntirely It could have been gimmicky but Morrison managed to pair that with a storyline about characters I actually cared about and were invested in So when Buddy looks directly off the page and into the yes of the reader If you re invested Gone (Gone, enough absorbednough care Threads Of The Shroud enough it will give you a chill It got me It wasn t the last time in this bookither The thing is I really liked Buddy and his family and the twists their story took were heart breakingThere are faults of course The very Morrison fault of brilliant concepts presented as finished stories which I xpect The meeting between Buddy and Morrison was a little underwhelming too though the background action added a surreal weight to Morrison s animal rights lecture And yes although Buddy s newfound animal rights activism was Morrison putting his opinions in Buddy s mouth they also make perfect sense for the character The art too is unremarkable But there s such a solid core of decent metafiction and really great characters that I ntirely forgive Morrison this time.

So cheers for that Animal Man is sort of the antithesis of Watchmen Kind of It s dark and there are some mature fucked up themes that are very real similar to Watchmen in that respect I guess But the Wiring end goal and style are uite uite different By thend of Animal Man what the reader has Against All Odds experienced his one of the greatest pieces of literary deconstruction AND ITS A COMIC TOO PICTURES But really literary deconstruction is just the beginning cause it s much Deconstruction of actual human perception perhapsxistence ExaminationThis So Cheers For That

N of the Species collecting Morrison's run on the comic The wild inventiveness he showed here isvidenced in his later work on Doom Patrol and The Invisibles as well as mainstream work on the Justice League and Marvel's New X Men Only longtime fans will fully understand and appreciate the critiue of DC's confused continuity that Morrison includes here But any reader is liable to be dazzled by Morrison's audacity; he not only asks and then answer.
