Praise for Jeff Lemire: "Lemire made a name for himself with the wistful, melancholy graphic novel Essex County (2007) and edged closer to mainstream success with the thrilling comic book SWEET TOOTH. He is currently proving to be a superstar of DC's New 52, most notably with the superhero-horror mash-up ANIMAL MAN."--BOOKLIST "Lemire has put ANIMAL MAN on tips of comic readers' tongues and in their hands with his edgy, dark tale"--COMIC BOOK RESOURCES "Forget Batman and Superman, Lemire and [artist Albert] Ponticelli make me want to be Animal Man."--IGN "Jeff Lemire and Andrea Sorrentino hit the bullseye perfectly with Green Arrow. Sharply written and featuring beautiful artwork, this is another hidden gem in the New 52 crown."--CRAVE ONLINE
