Meet the Author

Grant Morrison
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.

    Twisted, almost perfect, genius.

    Grant Morrison has a great way of incorporating elements of political thought, metaphysical theories, history, anarchy, time travel, and ambiguous (if not cool) pop references into his work. Although he had done prior work for 2000 AD and first worked for DC by reviving Animal Man, this is his start to comics superstardom. The moral amibuity, cleverness and breadth of vision afforded in this comic would soon invade mainstream Marvel and DC universes, although it would never be as fully developed or complete as it is here. I have to give marks down for the inconsistency with artists although mostly brilliant, there are several issues and panels that left me with a lot to be desired. Also, the story can get dauntingly confusing at times, although supposedly intended this way, it can really get in the way of you enjoying the material. An Absolute edition with clear detailed annotations just begs to be made.
