Sequart Research & Literacy Organization is proud to release Curing the Postmodern Blues: Reading Grant Morrison and Chris Weston’s The Filth in the 21st Century, authored by Tom Shapira.
Published in 2002-2003, Grant Morrison and Chris Weston’s The Filth is disgusting, deeply disturbing, and a comic-book masterpiece that inoculates readers against the problems of the postmodern condition.
So says Tom Shapira, who also explores The Filth‘s relationship to Morrison’s The Invisibles, to the 1999 film The Matrix, and to the work of Alan Moore. The book also includes interviews with Grant Morrison, Chris Weston, and inker Gary Erskine, plus art from Weston illuminating the design of the series and containing imagery censored in the printed comic.
Curing the Postmodern Blues is part of Sequart’s growing library of Grant Morrison-related material, which also includes Timothy Callahan’s Grant Morrison: The Early Years, Patrick Meaney’s Our Sentence is Up: Seeing Grant Morrison’s The Invisibles, and the documentary film Grant Morrison: Talking with Gods.
