On his personal blog, writer Jeff Lemire has confirmed that DC’s Animal Man will end its current run with March’s issue #29. Buddy Baker will remain a part of the New 52, becoming part of the new Justice League book Lemire will be writing in 2014.
Lemire said “After finishing the script for #29, I felt I had completed the story I wanted to tell with the Baker family and thought it was a perfect ending for the series. The best way for me to explore new things with the character would be to move him to a team setting and shakeup his status quo, DC agreed, and the Animal Man series will end with my final issue in March.”
Interestingly, Lemire also confirmed that he would not only be writing the final issue but providing the artwork as well. Which seems like a fitting end to a series I’ve absolutely loved from the very start of the New 52, and will be extremely sad to see go.
