"Fascinating, entertaining, and best of all, wholly accessible."
-- Andy Khouri (Comic Book Resources)
Grant Morrison redefined comics in the 1980s and early ’90s, from his trailblazing creation of Zenith, through his metatextual innovations on Animal Man, to his Dadaist super-heroics on Doom Patrol. Along the way, he also addressed Batman with his multi-layered masterpiece Arkham Asylum and the literary “Gothic” storyline.
Callahan examines all five works in detail, drawing out their evolving themes and exploring Morrison’s sometimes difficult texts in plain language. Rounding out the volume: an exclusive interview with Morrison, a foreword by popular comics writer Jason Aaron, and an appendix addressing Morrison’s even earlier, shorter work.
