Animal Man Vol. 1: The Hunt (The New 52) - Jeff Lemire First things first - I love when a comic lets a superhero be married and looks at like from that angle instead of making them endless bachelors or in on-again, off-again relationships that end up making revolutions over the same territory over and over again. Buddy Baker has a family, and he'll do anything to keep them safe, and that's pretty much the heart of this trade. I am not a big fan of the fact that this series starts off by putting the focus largely on someone other than the title character, and some of the visuals were so odd as to make following the tale difficult, but that doesn't take away from what's a fairly well-paced and tense story that doesn't feel like I've already seen the plot a thousand times.It strays pretty solidly into horror territory, so if that's not your thing I advise not going at this. But if that won't drive you away, its definitely worth a look. :)
