From the back of the TPB: Buddy Baker is a super-hero - The Man With Animal Powers. But what is the role of an Animal Man in the world today? Who is it that needs protection: Man, or the animals? In this long-awaited second collection of the groundbreaking series ANIMAL MAN, those questions become more and more troubling - and the answers less and less clear. And while Buddy casts around a path to follow, a much greater crisis of identity is shadowing him - a crisis that threatens to undo not just Buddy's life, but all of the foundations of his reality.
