Meet the Author

Grant Morrison has been working with DC Comics for more than twenty years, beginning with his legendary runs on the revolutionary titles ANIMAL MAN and DOOM PATROL. Since then he has written numerous best-sellers — including JLA, BATMAN and New X-Men — as well as the critically acclaimed creator-owned series THE INVISIBLES, SEAGUY, THE FILTH, WE3 and JOE THE BARBARIAN. Morrison has also expanded the borders of the DC Universe in the award-winning pages of SEVEN SOLDIERS, ALL-STAR SUPERMAN, FINAL CRISIS and BATMAN, INC., and he is currently reinventing the Man of Steel in the all-new ACTION COMICS.
         In his secret identity, Morrison is a “counterculture” spokesperson, a musician, an award-winning playwright and a chaos magician. He is also the author of the New York Times best-seller Supergods, a groundbreaking psycho-historic mapping of the superhero as a cultural organism. He divides his time between his homes in Los Angeles and Scotland.

Tony S. Daniel decided to be a comics artist in the 8th grade, and he hasn’t looked back since. After making his professional debut in 1993 on Comico’s The Elementals, he has contributed work to Marvel’s X-Force and Image’s Spawn: Bloodfeud as well as writing and illustrating his creator-owned titles Silke, The Tenth, Humankind, Adrenalynn and F5 — the last two of which led him, for a time, into the alternate reality known as Hollywood.
         After being lured back into comics to work with writer Geoff Johns on DC’s TEEN TITANS, Daniel went on to draw the final three issues of FLASH: THE FASTEST MAN ALIVE before landing his dream job pencilling the Dark Knight’s adventures in BATMAN. The Batcave is, he reports, surprisingly cozy.

Grant Morrison is at acid tripping levels not seen since 'Arkham Asylum' in Batman RIP. Bruce has a new girlfriend and has to juggle her with his Batman duties. The book features a new more deranged Batman as he goes up against the Black Glove organization. Joker is also involved, as is tradition.
