Chub Of The Day: Bloody Awesome Preview of ‘Animal Man’ #1!

Jeff Lemire is one of the most creative minds in comics today, and this September he resurrects the legendary Animal Man for a brand new ongoing series! As part of the new 52, Lemire kicks things off with a darker, scarier, and bloodier version of Buddy Baker, bound to make you sweat (just look at that cover!). Fans of ‘Sweet Tooth’ and ‘Essex County’ are getting what they’ve always wanted (or maybe it’s just me), a mainstream superhero/horror title from the mind of Lemire. Jeff Lemire brings insane amounts of character depth to the table coupled with on-the-edge-of-your-seat cliffhanger endings. The new Animal Man is one book you gotta read when the reboot hits this fall. We’ve got a sweet preview of the first few pages right here! Read on for the skinny…
