Interview with Animal Man and Red Hood artist Timothy Green

timothy greenDay One of Stockton-Con 2013 … wait, it’s the same joke again.  I’ll stop it.  Our Ramen crew took a road trip to the one-day comic convention to Stockton, CA – Stockton-Con 2013 held in the Stockton Sports Arena.

We stroll down Artist Alley and chit-chat with cool artist Timothy Green.  He’s worked on many projects in the DC Comics and Marvel Comics universe.  Timothy really likes drawing characters from the Guardians of the Galaxy and our host Eddie got a personal drawing of the Rocket Raccoon.  How cool is that?  Too cool.

  1. Animal Man is my favorite DC series (along with Katana and Vibe). What makes Animal Man so special is the way Lemire deconstructs the superhero mythology. For example:
    1) Superheroes tend to monopolize the attention of the reader, while Animal Man is constantly upstaged by the supporting characters of the series.
    2) Superhero comics usually don’t give much importance to the private life of their main character (they tend to focus only on the “costume on” part); in Animal Man, on the contrary, the private life of Buddy is the main theme of the series. In fact, it is rather infrequent to see Buddy with his costume on.
    3) Buddy is not perfect, and is not perceived as perfect by other people: in fact, in the 11th issue, when he tells his wife “It’s going to be okay”, she replies “Don’t give me anything of that superhero crap, Buddy.” That cut and thrust perfectly enlightens the philosophy of the series.

    • Animal Man is surely an under-rated book. I grew up a Marvel kid, but now I’m reading lots of DC/Vertigo trades and comics.

      • I used to be a trade waiter too. Now I broke this habit, because I became too impatient to wait 6 months between one trade and another.
        The last trade I bought was the Comedian/Rorschach one: it had a hard cover, so it was a very expensive purchase, but believe me man, it deserves every single cent of its cost. Thank you for your reply! : )
