After a bizarre incident with an alien spaceship, Buddy Baker, married father of two children, suddenly gained the power to temporarily duplicate the abilities of any creature within his immediate vicinity. Assuming the identity of Animal Man, the suburbanite began a new existence in which he tried to balance his realistic family responsibilities with his fantastical super-hero obligations. In this wryly humorous and deeply introspective volume, Animal Man endures a tumultuous journey of self-discovery that leads to spiritual enlightenment, suicidal depression, and a surreal encounter in which he steps outside of the story and meets with the book's author in the real world. SUGGESTED FOR MATURE READERS.
