One of legendary comics writer Grant Morrison's earliest works took a forgotten, almost laughable DC Comics hero, Animal Man and reimagined him in a stunning, postmodern series chronicling his bizzare adventures as a second-rate super hero struggling with real-life issues and moral dilemmas.

From one of the greatest storytellers of his generation, Grant Morrison's Animal Man took a forgotten DC Comics character and reimagined him in a groundbreaking, postmodern series that redefined what was possible in superhero comics. Buddy Baker, a.k.a. The Man with Animal Powers, is a second-rate superhero, devoted father, and animal activist. There isn't much money in the hero game, and with a wife and kids to support, Buddy soon finds himself torn between trying to make a living through traditional super-heroics and getting more deeply involved in the questionably legal world of animal rights activism. But in today's world with real-life issues, who really needs Animal Man's protection? Is it humankind or the animals? Or is it Buddy himself?

From the Eisner Award-winning and New York Times bestselling writer Grant Morrison and Eisner Award-nominated artist Chaz Truog, with inker Doug Hazlewood, comes one of the author's earliest, now classic, works exploring the nature of reality itself through the lens of a down-on-his-luck family-man superhero.

This first of two new trade paperback editions collects Animal Man #1-13, the character's dimension-spanning creation tale from Secret Origins #39, an introduction by Grant Morrison, and never-before-seen behind-the-scenes artwork.
