The Return Of Grant Morrison And Steve Yeowell’s Zenith?

Zenith was 2000AD’s first superhero strip, published in the eighties, written by Grant Morrison and drawn by Steve Yeowell. It basically got Morrison his gig on Animal Man, and the rest is history.

Serialised over a number of years, it was collected in paperback, but then it seems a new printing was suddenly halted. It seems that the paperwork on Zenith was suddenly rather unclear. Did 2000AD own it, or did Morrison? A large printing was held in a warehouse for years, with a few copies escaping into the wild, before the whole printing was pulped.

Rebellion aren’t talking, but turning up to C2E2. the Chicago comic-con, wearing Zenith t-shirts (as seen in the pic at the top, there) could be interpreted as a pretty big wink in that direction. I’d say “wait and see”; just, don’t go dropping £100 on a complete set on eBay any time soon. You’ll be kicking yourself if I’m right…
