Tuesday Runaround – Desperately Seeking Grant

MorrisonWatch1: Excerpts from Morrison’s upcoming Supergods book. ANd where he gets his ideas from.

“I stayed up late to induce delirium. At four thirty in the morning after fifty hours writing without sleep, I ransacked my dream diaries and most frightening childhood memories for content.

“The press pays so little interest to comic books that it doesn’t realize how these things work. They’re just closing down the one X-men comic so they can start up again with two. It will be a pincer tactic. One goes downwind of the readers with the bucket of shit, while the other creeps up behind and holds their mouths open for the first one to drop it all in. They could just have handed out knives and forks.”
