    Buddy Baker, a.k.a. “the Man with Animal Powers,” is a second-rate superhero, devoted father and animal activist. There isn’t much money in the hero game, and with a wife and kids to support, Buddy soon finds himself torn between trying to make a living through traditional super-heroics and getting more deeply involved in the questionably legal world of animal rights activism. But in today’s world, with real-life issues, who really needs Animal Man’s protection? Is it humankind or the animals? Or is it Buddy himself?

    From the Eisner Award-winning and New York Times best-selling writer Grant Morrison comes one of his earliest, now classic, works exploring the nature of reality itself through the lens of a down-on-his-luck family-man superhero. This first of two 30th Anniversary Deluxe Edition hardcovers collects Animal Man #1-13, the character’s dimension-spanning creation tale from Secret Origins #39 and an introduction by Grant Morrison.
