What fourth wall?

When I first started working at a comic shop, I was assigned the grueling task of sorting several long boxes of early 90's comics. If you collect comics, then you recognize this as Organizing a Stack of Crap. In amongst the expected Crisis This, Knightfall That, and Balent Catwoman, I spotted something interesting--a run of comics with Brian Bolland covers. I'm very fond of Bolland, and I'd never heard of the character, Animal Man. That was my introduction to the obscure hero who was just trying to make ends meet.

Fast forward a few years, and I was attending the final Wizard World Dallas. The DC panel endured many, many complaints about Grant Morrison, when one of the editors mentioned a new Animal Man series. My hand shot up, and I asked whether Bolland would be doing the covers, because his work on the 90's series was so iconic. I was told there were no plans to use Bolland. A few months later, though, the comic came out. Lo and behold, it had Bolland covers! It's probably coincidence, but I'm totally taking credit for it.

I think Animal Man was featured either in Batman: The Brave & the Bold or The Justice League. I owe all my obscure DC hero knowledge to these two shows. ^^;

I've not seen any of The Brave & The Bold, so that must be it. I have all the Justice League Unlimited on DVD. He may have appeared in the background on that one, but I know there's no episode about him.

I cannot find a reference to him on TV at all online. >_< Maybe I'll have to go back through my DVR and see which episode it was...
