What's New In The New 52: Rise of the SPLINTERFOLK

What's New In The New 52: Rise of the SPLINTERFOLK

By Bob Harras Friday, May 17th, 2013

Buddy Baker’s life is in complete turmoil—his only son is dead, his wife has left him and taken their daughter with her, and the crushing weight of fame bears down on him in the wake of his award nomination.

Now, he must also confront the monstrosities known as the SPLINTERFOLK, extreme activists who don't want to just save animals – they want to BECOME animals! No matter how grotesque that sounds, Jae Lee's designs take the concept to an even darker place. And wait until you see how series artist Steve Pugh brings these horrific creatures to life on the page! Plus, the SPLINTERFOLK play an integral part in the epic battle that will unfold over the coming months as writer Jeff Lemire expands Buddy's universe in new and unexpected ways … literally.

See you next week,
