Just after finding out that Grant Morrison has been nominated for an Eisner Award for his work on Legendary Comics’ Annihilator and DC Comics Multiversity, Legendary has announced that the six issue Annihilator will be available in hardcover this August. The critically-acclaimed series is brought to life with artwork from Frazer Irving (Batman and Robin, Judge Dredd, Necronauts).
An original graphic novel odyssey directly from Morrison’s subversive mind, the reality-bending sci-fi adventure like not other tells the story of washed-up Hollywood screenwriter Ray Spass who is caught in a downward spiral of broken relationships, wild parties and self-destruction. Out of luck and out of chances, he’s one failed script away from fading into obscurity. Little does he know he’s about to write the story of his life.
As his imagination runs rampant, Ray must join forces with his own fictional character Max Nomax on a reality-bending race to stop the entire universe from imploding… without blowing his own mind in the process.
The following is a video of Morrison talking about the project:
