It’s no secret that Travel Foreman has played a big role in the success of DC’s newest version of Animal Man. It has been officially announced that Foreman will be leaving the series, to be replaced by Steve Pugh starting at issue #9. Given that it was announced that Foreman will be heading to Birds of Prey, this isn’t much of a shock. How will the affect the series? Will it still be the same beautifully haunting family story? Only time will tell, but it’s nice to see Pugh return to the series after 20 years. Read on for the skinny…
Travel Foreman will be moving on from Buddy Baker’s ethereal adventures in The Rot, but ANIMAL MAN remains in good hands with artist Steve Pugh taking over illustration duties. Pugh is no stranger to Animal Man’s adventures, having drawn an extensive run of the character’s original series in the 1990s.
“For me, it’s awesome to be returning to a book that was such a milestone in my creative life and with Jeff, a killer writer who’s been punching ANIMAL MAN through the ceiling!” said Pugh. “Yeah, I was buying the book already but now I don’t have to wait so long to find out what happens next!”
Pugh joins the Baker family full-time with ANIMAL MAN #9, in May. Check out the cover by Travel Foreman right here at The Source.
