Welcome back to another installment of Preview Monday! This week, we’re giving you exclusive first looks at ANIMAL MAN ANNUAL #2 and TOM STRONG AND THE PLANET OF PERIL #1!

Still reeling from the shocking death of his son, Buddy Baker is taking his grief out on the world around him. In this special story that reunites the series’ original creative team of writer Jeff Lemire and artist Travel Foreman, Buddy seeks out Anansa The Spider Queen in an attempt to regain contact with Cliff. But what’s Anansa’s connection to Animal Man’s son? And even if she’s able to help Buddy, why would she? Find out when ANIMAL MAN ANNUAL #2 hits stores this week.

Finally, it’s the return of Tom Strong! When the lives of his daughter and her unborn child are in danger, it’ll be up to Tom to save them. Unfortunately, it seems like there’s nothing he can do to help them … until he remembers that there’s one last thing that just might do the trick. Will a journey to Terra Obscura, a mirror planet to Earth, hold the solution that Tom needs? And will he make it there in time to save his child and grandchild? From writer Peter Hogan and artists Chris Sprouse and Karl Story, TOM STRONG AND THE PLANET OF PERIL #1 flies into stores on Wednesday.
