CBF Quick Picks #98 : Animal Man #3

The diversity in comics continues to shine and there are two of them that exemplify that notion. Jeff Lemire’s Animal Man #3 not only showcases some freakish but appealing ideas, but keeps the emphasis on the family aspect that has worked so well with the character for years. And Scott Snyder’s Swamp Thing #3 takes a twist in bringing a new character into the mix that has ties to the black. What both exceptional writers are building this towards remains to be seen, but it’s got me hyped up for the potential crossover they’ve been discussing.

And then we get into the 2nd part of the X-Men relaunch with Kieron Gillen’s Uncanny X-Men #1. The concepts of an Extinction Team are promising – I just don’t know if this is the book new readers should be picking up. There’s a lot to pick up on, but if you can handle the ride, it’s a fun journey.
