    It sucks that he's off, largely to me because I can imagine him losing interest with the company altogether when he ends his SW and RL runs

    I think his JLD (which he consciously decided to make it more psychological and character-based than plot/superhero) is counter to how they really want the Constantine book to be.

    I have a different experience with Milligan, Human Target is one of my fav Vertigo series, i really liked how he played Chance identity,the themes he used. His Dark City,Dark Knight was special Bat story. Then i read Greek Street that was was really bad that i couldnt read more than the first 3,4 issues. His Hellblazer was fine but not spectacular.


    I just read CBR article "Greatest Stories Ever Told" with Milligan's works and there are many interesting series there of his i have barely heard about. I know vaguely about Enigma,Shade name wise.

    Those comic sounded the creativity,ideas i liked about his Human Target. Time to read more of his his original,own stories and hope they are in print.

    yeah, I'd like to see him get to some original stuff more than anything. Although I feel like he's the sort of writer the big two shouldn't lose...

    Greek Street was a book I really enjoyed and I'm still sad that I had to drop it around #11

    Maybe they should keep him in Vertigo, looking at his fan fav comics they are hardly straight superhero.

    Some writers are better on their own in other genres than the one genre that dominate Big Two comics.

    I dont want to generalize but i wouldnt be a big fan of American comics if there were not so many British,Irish(meaning Ennis) creators doing their own thing without interest in Superhero. Garth Ennis,Milligan etc

    I'd rather he remain at Vertigo, really no way am I reading Green Lantern or Justice League, especially not with the adjective "Dark" next to it.

    Lemire is so dull, it's like reading paint peeling off the wall.

    Heh you havent read Animal Man? One of the most hailed comics from DC/Marvel at the moment. I respect him alot for that comics only, he has made Animal Man that i never cared for to be so creepy,weird wonderful read. I dont read his JLD or whatever else team book he is writing.

    His Animal Man is old school DCU comics that is dark,horror combined with Superhero. Its like reading horror in Vertigo, almost Hellblazer like.

    Hello.
    I had the opportunity to meet Peter Milligan in person, several years ago.
    It happened in Italy during a Comic Convention in Terni (a city in the center of Italy).
    Milligan was one of the main guests of the convention.

    Unfortunately there were very few people to listen to his interviews/lectures... but keep in mind we were in the center of rural Italy.
    Even if I was not part of the staff, I was involved with the organization, and I worked with a local radio/television, so I was kind of a journalist.

    When the opportunity presented itself and he was alone with an escort/translator, I introduced myself and congratuleted for his works, especially "Shade the changing man".
    Our chat has been brief because I didn't want to be invasive and I was intimidated because, being italian, my spoken english it's terrible and I understand with difficult.
    So I shook his hand and wish him the best of luck.

    During the years I heard Milligan has eccentric behaviors, with me he has been very placid.

    The first 5 issues of Animal Man were amazing. Since though, it's lost a lot of that trippy, horror feel that made the book special, especially after Travel Foreman left.

    Frankly i think Pugh is more consistent drawing the characters even if Foreman had good fit for the series. He is hardly special enough to hurt the series. Not like its Leandro Manco leaving HB level. Im not sure about Rotworld crossover yet. I havent read Animal Man post issue 11 because i have getting Swamp Thing to read with Rotworld.

    It has been almost as strong in 5-10 issues to me. Its just not as fresh, its building the world of Animal Man,myths more. Its still more interesting than most superhero/weird stories i read. Animal Man and Daredevil have been consistently awesome in the superhero of the big two.

    It's not so much that Foreman's art was so incredible as that it had a specific role in the book and its storytelling. It perfectly carried the story with the supernatural, trippy weird tone. Animal Man I think is a very art-driven book.

    But after those 5 issues more than anything, I think the Rot as a concept has just gotten tiresome. It's a very one-dimensional conflict, especially when you contrast it to how the concept of rot/decay vs life was portrayed in Swamp Thing v2, and it's extended way too long.

    Has it really added anything to the Animal Man mythos that Jamie Delano didn't already do?

    Yeah i know Delano role with current elements used in Animal Man. I was talking more about new run,series in 52Nu world Lemire is doing a good job building the story,the series. Not talking about Rot, elements.

    Sure it has been very focused on Rot,Red conflict but we have to see how good he is after these arcs. You cant dimiss him before hand if he can add good elements of his own in the near future.

    I have never really cared about Animal Man before, i havent bothered to Delano,Milligan run and read little of Morrison run the most important thing Lemire is good writing Animal Man month after month whatever elements he is using.

    I don't know, I just found Rotworld to be really generic zombie book. I had been on the fence for a while and #13 was when I decided to drop it.

    Morrison's Animal Man is in my top 5 favorite comics of all times.
