What makes Buddy and Ellen Baker's relationship so special and so enduring? “To me, Buddy may be the "superhero," but Ellen is the strong one,” says ANIMAL MAN writer Jeff Lemire. “He may wear the costume, but she's the rock of the Baker clan. Truth is, Buddy is actually a bit of a flake. One day he's a stuntman, the next day he's an indy film actor, the next he's flying around San Diego in tights and a mask. Yet. Ellen is always there, always supporting him and picking up the slack at home...she even manages a successful career as an illustrator.
Travel Foreman will be moving on from Buddy Baker’s ethereal adventures in The Rot, but ANIMAL MAN remains in good hands with artist Steve Pugh taking over illustration duties. Pugh is no stranger to Animal Man’s adventures, having drawn an extensive run of the character’s original series in the 1990s.

Featuring two pieces of extremely rare pin-up art, the newly reissued and repackaged HITMAN, VOL. 4: ACE OF KILLERS collects issues #15-22 of Garth Ennis and John McCrea’s acclaimed series. The first is a cover that was never before published and the second is from our previous WHO’S WHO series. Take a look at both of these below.
