starkiller809's Animal Man #5 - The Hunt, Conclusion: Food Chain review

Daddy's Really Strong

Jeff Lemire and Travel Foreman have no doubt created the sleeper hit of the New 52. They have introduced familiar characters in a new and fresh way. Does issue four finish off the first arch well?
 
THE GOOD:
I really like the art. Travel Foreman gives the book a great feeling to it that nothing else in the DC Universe has and I'm very happy for that. It's very sketchy and I just love it. Jeff Huet does do a few pages in this issue but you almost don't notice the artist change. The story is amazing and it's what makes Animal Man a great series. In this issue we get to see Buddy fight the Hunter that is attacking his wife and son. We also get to see Maxine use a bit more of her amazing abilities. It's a great read and it definitely lays out a whole new story while finishing off one.
 
THE BAD:
This really is nothing that bugged me in this issue.
 
THE VERDICT: 5/5 (Perfect)
Jeff Lemire and Travel Foreman continue on this amazing run of Animal Man. It's a family that is thrown into some dark stuff. Jeff Lemire really sculpts all of the characters where they feel strong, but they all have a vulnerable spot to them. There is so much emotion that is lodged into these pages and it's just amazing. If you want to read this, go get issue one, two, three, four and this and start getting this. If you don't want to, get the trade because this is one of the best comics out currently.

Buddy and Maxine rescue Ellen and Cliff but in what Maxine thought was a good move the third hunter infects the animals that she summons with rot and they are set out to further spread the rot. We see what could happen if the rot takes Maxine which is what in on the cover. This was a great end to the first arc which introduced...

    Afhkjghjksghkakjhsjghkdhjgs That cover is just..... wow. Terrifying. This is of course in a good way. Animal Man is known for being a series that is creepy as all hell, and the covers have matched this. This one is just... wow, probably the most blatantly stunning, with Animal Man's torn off face, and his daughter's.... evil face. But surprisingly, the biggest ocular assault is the trippy background. Foreman gets away with doing an empty background by filling it with red dots of varying size tha...
