Sounds great. I don't read much Morrison these days but I'm always fascinated by his thoughts (contempt-free, too, unlike some creators) on superheroes.

As long as his editor kept some of the rambling down, absolutely.

I look forward to the book...

... I fear the legions who will parrot this the writing in to some new holy gospel.

So torn. :-?

Also August 2010 is really far away. :(

An audio book version by Grant ought to be a hoot.

all his classic stuff came out while i was in my twenties and didnt collect comics. now he's primarily dc and doesnt write any titles i buy. i did put batman r.i.p. and all star superman in my amazon cart. i'm always intending to try his x-men run but never get around to it.
what would be a good grant morrison trade to start off with?
