This scene always makes me wibble.


This story is taken from Animalman 26 the conering story is about how animalman meet his writer Grant Morrison and they talk about his run and how Grant took Animalman's wife and kids aways from him, Animalman is pissed off and Grant decides to spice the issue up he will put two supervillains in to fight Animalman, and then Grant decides to talk to us the reader.

A happy ending for all.

Sometimes Grant Morrison really does write magic.

...this is the definitive Morrison story.

As if this ending (one of the few times "It was all a dream" has been done right) didn't choke me up enough the first time I read it, it was the final two pages that really got those manly tears going: Morrison heading out at night to contact his childhood imaginary friend with a flashlight signal then, there being no response, walking away saying good-bye. And in the very last panel, there's a return flash...excuse me; there's something in my eye...

This was such a great story. I don't mean to complain, but I kind of wish it had been more influential, honestly. Not in the "meta-commentary" aspect, per se, but more in the "God, why do we get into all this overwrought tragedy?" sense. Not that bad things shouldn't ever happen in comics, that is, but I think Morrison has a line later on that implies that all this death and schadenfreude being considered "more realistic" was just ridiculous.

"Pointless violence and death is 'realistic.' comic books are 'realistic' now."
For the sarcasm, that was probably my favorite line in the whole run.

THIS. So much motto.

A certain amount of angst is good, but past some point it loses all savor and becomes just way too much.

Guh. This really is one of the most perfect moments, not just for Buddy Baker, but for the history of comic books.
