This is great. I just read this run myself and stumbled across this post, which really sums up the total absurdity of Milligan's take on the character. The book feels more like the contemporaneous Shade the Changing Man or Morrison's Doom Patrol than like Animal Man, but that's not really a bad thing. It's just nuts, especially whenever the Nowhere Man comes into play. That panel of his eye floating randomly in the air is especially stunning, and in a strange way kind of haunting and creepy. Milligan just stuffed everything into this, using the series as a vehicle for discussions of Burroughs' cut-up texts and Schrodinger's cat and alternate reality paradoxes. What better way to follow up Morrison's run than to completely destabilize any notion of a stable reality?
