Why you should buy the new issue of SciFi Now magazine ;D (btw, ESPECIALLY if you are Damian fans. Ahem)
The current issue of SciFi Now (#75) features a four page spread for my latest interview with Grant Morrison, talking all about Batman and Action Comics, and explaining how the writer is not moving away from superheroes, or from DC, but simply spreading his wings a little.
Looking at his end issues with Bruce and Clark, Grant also talks about Happy and his upcoming projects. It’s a bit more of a conversational interview this, so non-Morrison fans can keep their hate to themselves! For fans, definitely check out this issue and enjoy - we even talk about Stephanie Brown, the Bat-Cow, and Opal Fruits :)

Grant Morrison speaks out about Alan Moore, in my latest article over on The Beat:
Hope the following rather massive info-dump helps clarify a few things. I also hope this may explain why I’ve sometimes felt myself to be the victim of a genuine grudge that seems quite staggering in its sincerity and longevity. Reading the comments section following “The Strange Case of Alan Moore and Grant Morrison” I can’t help but note how heavily my detractors rely on a total lack of research, gross distortions of historical fact, and playground name-calling to support their alleged points.
Not that I expect this to make much difference but the opportunity to separate fact from fantasy is a welcome one. Pádraig quotes from Alan Moore discussing me during a webchat earlier this year without challenging even the most obvious and basic of the many historical inaccuracies and contradictions in Moore’s assertions. In fact, Moore’s recollections are completely unreliable and I wouldn’t mind having some facts put on record, once and for all.
Thanks to Pádraig for allowing me to respond directly to his piece and to Laura for bringing it to my attention and offering me space on The Beat to get some things off my medal-heavy chest.

My coverage of Dundee Comics Day is up at The Beat now.
…in which a mini MorrisonCon occurs in a Scottish city, resulting in secrets spilled, wine aplenty, and the sexiest comics line-up you could hope to meet.
Animal Man #24
Extraordinary Gentlemen, redux
I did this drawing a year ago, but now I’m trying to amp it up by re-inking and coloring it digitally.
Again, it is Warren Ellis, Grant Morrison, Alan Moore, Neil Gaiman (and Cabal!), and Garth Ennis, from left to right.
This is so cool.
Why in the name of God am I in a top hand and silk gloves? Is that the top hat made of gold coins that McKelvie always accuses me of owning?
AW SHIT YEEH
First sneak peak at PAX AMERICANA by Grant Morrison and Frank Quitely
Pax Americana is one of eight one-shots (showing six different universes with two book-end issues) dedicated to Grant Morrison’s frequently whispered about MULTIVERSITY.
Also it features the return of Ted Kord to the… well, the DC Multiverse!
Oh nooooo, I’m getting hyped again and there’s still so long to wait.
My latest interview with Grant Morrison is up on the New Statesman today. We chatted about Wonder Woman, finishing Action Comics and Batman Inc, stepping away from DC monthlies, his MBE, Happy, Multiversity, Before Watchmen, MorrisonCon and more. Enjoy!
“[The] guy that ate Supergods!” Morrison laughs. “Cooked it and ate it on the basis that it was my fault that people couldn’t find alternative comics in their local comics stores. And I was standing in the way, pretending to be the face of alternative comics, and how I actually stood for corporate this or corporate … you know, I’m the man – again as I say, I’m a freelance writer, I’m not on staff at any company. But this guy ate the book!”
That’s quite impressive.
“It certainly is! His shit must have looked like a William Burroughs cut-up!”
In Wetham’s diagnosis, then, children were too underdeveloped to separate the outlandish fantasy in their comic books from everyday reality, and this made them vulnerable to barely concealed homosexual and antisocial content.
I tend to believe the reverse is true: that it’s adults who have the most trouble separating fact from fiction. A child knows that real crabs on the beach do not sing or talk like the cartoon crabs in THE LITTLE MERMAID. A child can accept all kinds of weird-looking creatures and bizarre occurrences in a story because the child understands that stories have different rules that allow for pretty much anything to happen.
Adults, on the other hand, struggle desperately with fiction, demanding constantly that it conform to the rules of everyday life. Adults foolishly demand to know HOW Superman can possibly fly, or HOW Batman can possibly run a multibillion-dollar business empire during the day and fight crime at night, when the answer is obvious even to the smallest child: because it’s not real.
—Grant Morrison, Supergods.
Oh Shit! Moments in Comics …
