Collects Animal Man #1-9.

From Grant Morrison, creator of The Invisibles and writer of New X-Men and JLA, comes a classic tale of a man whose struggle to save human lives becomes something more...
Buddy Baker is Animal Man, able to take on the characteristics of any creature he touches. After some time away from high-profile heroics, he decides to get back into costume - much to the chagrin of his wife and son - and is soon involved in a series of dangerous and exciting adventures. But Buddy has some decisions to make, and some shocks to come; because for the first time, he's listening to the animals. And he doesn't like what he's hearing.

    Animal Man de Grant Morrison, un cómic donde los personajes tienen sospechas de que sus vidas son escritas, donde se quejan contra el creador de usarlos violentamente para entretener a los lectores, donde el Psicopirata tiene miedo de dormirse por si es borrado de la continuidad, donde existe un limbo donde van todos los personajes olvidados que ya no tienen cabida en la época actual y esperan a que algún guionista se apiade de ellos y los resucite. Donde los personajes al ser conscientes de que forman parte de un cómic viajan a través de las viñetas, donde se les explica que su vida y todo lo que pasa en ella no lo controlan ellos si no el escritor y finalmente el personaje acaba en el mundo real manteniendo una charla con Grant Morrison donde se despide de él y se confiesa a los lectores en uno de los números mas mágicos que he leído en mi vida, y cómics llevo ya los míos. Y todo esto acompañado de un mensaje contra todo tipo de maltrato animal. Para terminar cito una conversación entre Animal Man y Morrison:
    AM: -Si has contado mis historias, si yo soy la estrella de este "cómic" ¿Por qué estoy siempre a un lado? ¿Por qué soy siempre un observador?
    GM: -Es lo mismo para todos. Esperamos ser protagonista de nuestras vidas, pero siempre acabamos haciendo de extras. La vida no tiene argumentos, ni tramas, ni desenlaces. Es una gran colección de cabos sueltos e hilos colgados que nunca se explican.
    Y así se convierte Animal Man de Morrison instantáneamente en uno de mis cómics favoritos y Morrison vuelve a sorprenderme. Leedlo si podéis. Nada mas.

    I really enjoyed this book and the whole series - its a combination of old fashioned comic type stories and (slightly preachy) social activism all wrapped up in a 3 Volume long postmodern arc deconstructing the entire genre. Inspired.

    To get the most of out this book and the series you should read these five books in this order;

    'Crisis on Infinite Earths' by Wolfman/Perez
    (A key DC crossover book whose events have a major impact to the character of Animal Man as the three volumes continue).

    'Animal Man Vol. 1: Animal Man'
    (The first Animal Man book, introducing you to the character and themes).

    'Invasion!' by Giffen/Mantlo
    (This is another great DC crossover - plus chapters 6 and 7 of Animal Man Vol 1 are crossover stories designed to fall under the Invasion! event storyline so you should read it at this point).

    'Animal Man Vol. 2: Origin of the Species'

    'Animal Man Vol. 3: Deus Ex Machina'

    I read Vol 1 - 3 without having read 'Crisis' or 'Invasion' and still enjoyed them a lot but reading them in the above order would give you the maximum enjoyment.

    The whole notion of the artist making an appearance like those Warner Brothers cartoons in Issue #5 is brilliant.

    Animal Man functions like your typical comic book hero archetype, but seeks to break those stereotypes through narrative, characters, etc.
