Travel Foreman off Animal Man; Artistic Changes Abound at DC Comics
Birds of Prey? Are you frickin' kidding me, DC?
The DC blog The Source announced a plethora of artistic changes today with not only Foreman leaving Animal Man, but:
”¢ Fernando Dagino off Resurrection Man and on Suicide Squad
”¢ Jesus Saiz off Birds of Prey and on Resurrection Man
”¢ Steve Pugh on Animal Man
Dagino was the best thing to come out of RM, so SS should benefit; I do like his art a lot.
I guess Pugh was an artist on the original run of Animal Man, one I didn't read. I'm not familiar with his art, but I LOVED Foreman on this book. If I am not mistaken, Animal Man was one of the mid-tier New 52 books to see an increase in sales. Check out Foreman's cover to Animal Man #9 at the right.
All the changes take place starting with each issue's #9 in May.
DC, if it ain't broke - don't FIX it! You are shooting yourselves in the foot!
Boooo! I say.
Update: Jeff Lemire has provided some commentary and a first look at Steve Pugh's art from Animal Man #7.
Update #2: Travel Foreman commented on his departure stating the decision was his.
