Animal Man #23 - May 1990

"Crisis" by Grant Morrison, Chas Truog, and Doug Hazlewood.

The Phantom Stranger escorts Buddy as he travels through time, and he sits him down with some friends:
sg this issue, Morrison also manages to work in Psycho Pirate, The Crime Syndicate, Prince Ra-Man, and others. Don't read these issues if you're going to be driving afterwards.

And I have to say something about the cover: its one of my all-time favorite Brian Bolland covers (and that's saying something!): you've got Animal Man, The Phantom Stranger, Binky, two sexy girls, plus Go-Go Checks! What more could you ask for?

Probably my single favorite appearance of the Stranger...and let's be honest, one of my favorite comics issues of all time.

Oh wow, a Binky homage cover. Love it. Nostalgia's been going on for a long time, it seems.
