Animal Man #11

THE GOOD: 
Alberto Ponticelli is the penciler in this issue. I really like the way that he draws Buddy and all the different forms that he takes in this issue. He also manages to continue this ever dark feeling that all the other pencilers have contributed. I also really like his facial expressions. They add a lot to the story and the characters. I think that this issue, is huge. We get to see Buddy be recreated by the Red so that he can go back and fight. I really liked that part and I really like the new powers that he has been given. I also think that the characterization is perfect in this issue. I really liked the huge ending and I hope it's turns out to be a little better then it seems. I also really like the secret Avatar of the Rot mystery that is going on. 
 
THE BAD: 
While I do like the art, I think that it's a little inferior to the other artist that have worked on the book. I also think that Maxine acts much older then a four year old. Ellen is kinda confusing me as well. She is really pointing a lot of the blame and Buddy and I think that Maxine is more to blame.  
 
THE VERDICT: 4.5/5 (Amazing) 
Animal Man has been an amazing series so far. The characters are interesting, the plot is strong and the art is superb. I really think that people should read Animal Man because it's a much darker book and you'll have a lot of fun just sitting down and reading about the characters and their never ending struggles. I highly recommend this book to everyone. The trades will be coming out soon enough and if you can't wait that long, the stories are great in single issue format as well.

    With Travel Foreman's full departure from the series, we have Steve Pugh's first cover, and it's not really that great. The layout is very sporadic, not well thought out, and the whole image just feels a bit crowded. However, I do really like the way Hunter/Buddy is chaotically fraying apart, and the skeletal design on the bottom of Cliff's sneaker is definitely genius.What's strange about Travel Foreman's departure, is that instead of the expected 100% Pugh issue, we get full interior art by fi...

    The Harvey Award nominations were released this week and Animal Man was a double nominee with “Best New Series” and “Best Writer”. While it’s no surprise the series has been nominated, it’s been showered in critical acclaim and has been one of the real success stories of DC’s relaunch, what is surprising, is that it is DC’s solitary nominee in these categories. In fact the only other nominee for the publisher in the entire list, was for artist J.H. Williams III for his ground breaking work on Ba...
