I was absolutely blown away by this last volume of Animal Man by Grant Morrison. Everything that had been written up until this point, is utilized in such a special way. It's so hard to ignore the absolute talent of Grant Morrison. When his writing makes sense, it can really be of some of the best quality writing period, let alone in graphic novels themselves. This was of graphic novel classic quality, and I see now why so many hold this high on the list of comic classics. The fourth wall isn't just broken in this volume, it's completely removed and eventually ends in an issue with Animal Man being lectured by Grant Morrison about the world he lives in. So many other writers could have attempted this, and it wouldn't have read nearly quite as well as it does here. When Buddy Baker first realizes the audience, being the reader, it's an absolute blast to the brain and you wonder, am I really reading someone's life? Morrison is definitely one of the most creative comic writers, and this volume of Animal Man that composes his last few issues in his run, are definite proof of this. ( )

While it's a little disappointing that this marks the end of Morrison's run on Animal Man, I'm more than a little relieved that his story was not unnecessarily stretched out. His work here clearly channels a lot of Alan Moore, but then again, Moore's not the only one who can expose the weaknesses of the comic book genre. Deus Ex Machina is a superb conclusion to an eye-popping and eye-opening story. ( )
