|Well, the experience he's refferring to did involve Grant Morrison in a way- Animal Man busted right through the fourth wall and met Mozza in an Animal Man issue way back in the early nineties. Buddy's pretty vague on the details- probably because he doesn't want to tell people he's spending a long space voyage with that they're really just comic book characters- so you can read just about anything into the 'peak experience' if you've not read Animal Man.|
So, number 18 huh? SPOLIERS below:
* Detective Chimp. Always a plus.
* Shadowpact- aren't they meant to be missing for the duration of this year?
* The Croatoans- When I first read the teasers I assumed this refered to the residents of Limbo Town from Klarion the Witchboy, it turns out Ralph and Dick-Chimp have been in a secret detective club for years. Nobody ever tells me this stuff... Also, the solicits read 'Ralph, We're the Croatoans, we found Shakespeare's Ghost Writer, we can find one of our own guys". In 52 #18 the line reads: 'Ralph, We're the Croatoans, we figured out the ending of Lost...'
And, in the biggest SPOILER of the issue, Ralph might just get to be the new Doctor Fate.
