Graphic Novel Review of Animal Man Vol. 1 The Hunt by Jeff Lemire

Synopsis: "One of the breakout hits from DC Comics – The New 52! In these tales from issues #1-6 of the new series, Buddy Baker has gone from "super" man to family man – but is he strong enough to hold his family together when Maxine, his young daughter, starts to manifest her own dangerous powers? As these new abilities continue to terrify Buddy and his wife Ellen, things take a turn for the worse as Buddy and Maxine begin a journey into the heart of The Red. Don't miss the amazing series from writer Jeff Lemire (SWEET TOOTH) and artist Travel Foreman (The Immortal Iron Fist)"

My Review: I was kind of surprised at how much I disliked this one, I guess I was expecting something that involved animals a little more. Instead this ended up being a very morbid and explicit, there is a lot of blood and graphic images. It was neither a superhero graphic novel nor something that appeals to me. I am sure it is perfect for other people but for me if you have blood and gore you better have a good story backing it up.
My Rating: I was expecting more animal than gore, so not my cup of tea. I give it a rating of One Paw and a Stump Wag.
