Rusty’s Comic Reading List 2016 | July 3, 2016

AnimalManVol1

This is a re-read. Well, a re-re-re-re-re-read, more accurately. I bought the Morrison run when it was in comic form and picked up this volume when it came out. I no longer have the originals, so in my ever-slowly-expanding comic bookshelf library, this is a run I want in there. I just bought the next volume from Comet Comics (thanks Heather! And it was GREAT to see Kin yesterday!), so I pulled this out to read it again.

You can see where this was originally a four-issue mini pitch – the Bwana Beast story wraps up tidily in that span – and you can also see when Morrison started thinking about the story he REALLY wanted to tell (along with the animal rights stuff). The Coyote Gospels deserves the acclaim it has gotten, especially when you know how Morrison’s run (26 issues) wraps up.

Great stuff. Highly recommended.
