Animal Man #7 is written by Jeff Lemire and features a cover design by Foreman. The issue will kick off the new 'Animal vs. Man' story arc.
"As the forces of the Rot continue to pursue The Bakers across the backwoods of America, Cliff and Buddy decide to get in some quality father-and-son time. Plus, Buddy has a terrifying vision of things to come," reads DC's solicitation.
DC's March solicitations confirm numerous changes to its creative teams. Jesus Saiz is returning to Birds Of Prey, and Gianluca Gugliotta will rejoin Mister Terrific.
Animal Man #7 arrives in stores on March 7, 2012.
