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.
 

Artist Frank Quitely first worked on the Scottish underground comics title Electric Soup in 1990. His big break into American comics was Flex Mentallo, a Doom Patrol spin-off written by fellow Glaswegian Grant Morrison for DC Comics' Vertigo imprint in 1996. He's also worked on JLA, New X-Men, THE SANDMAN: ENDLESS NIGHTS and the opening issues of the hit series BATMAN AND ROBIN.

Great artwork and story line. It reminded me of a Palahniuk narration with its dark and oddly inter twinned realities, and, of course, the sometimes malevolent wit.

Trying to explain Flex Mentallo in a few sentences is futile. Trying to explain it to non-comic readers is like explaining operating systems to a cat. This story fits well with Grant Morrison's Invisibles and The Filth. Very abstract storytelling with beautiful art.
