5 – Animal Man
Animal Man (By Jeff Lemire and Various Artists)
I’ve always enjoyed this new incarnation of Animal man, but there’s no question things have ramped up considerably in the past year. Poor Buddy Baker has been run through the ringer but keeps finding a reason to dig deep and fight back. He’s an incredibly likeable superhero who is trying to hold his family together while he takes on some of the most horrific creatures imaginable.
