The much-demanded collection from writer Grant Morrison is back in print, in a new edition from VERTIGO! Morrison is all set to breathe new life into the X-Men, and has already helped revitalize the JLA, making it DC's #1 title. But before all that, Morrison produced a ground-breaking run on ANIMAL MAN that's since become a cult fan-favorite. Buddy Baker is more than just a second-rate super-hero. He's also a devoted husband, a loving father of two and a fierce animal activist. But just as he's attempting to jump-start his super-hero career again, his life takes some unexpected and bizarre turns. Reprinting the first nine issues of one of the most original, innovative, and thought-provoking super-hero comics of the last dozen years, the ANIMAL MAN TP showcases some of Morrison's early genius in storytelling—including the infamous ""Coyote Gospel"" story and featuring appearances by Superman and Martian Manhunter.
