Because Not Everyone Knows What Steve Yeowell Looks Like…

 Everyone knows what Grant Morrison looks like. He cultivates a look… But not everyone knows what Steve Yeowell, his artist on Zenith, Sebastian O and Invisibles looks like. Well, this last Saturday at Gosh! Comics in London, Steve did a signing for the controversial Zenith collections from Rebellion. So we, at least, know which […]

With New Editions Impending, Was The Hardcover Zenith Worth The Wait?

By Tony Wolf As a lifelong Grant Morrison fan, I'd long heard whispers of Zenith, the elusive longform, out-of-print postmodern late 80s/early 90s superhero series by Morrison and artist Steve Yeowell (his first collaborator on The Invisibles), originally serialized in the UK weekly anthology 2000AD. When news broke that Rebellion / 2000AD would be reprinting […]

First Review: The Complete Zenith Hardcover

Dave Wallace writes; A complete Zenith collection has long been one of the Holy Grails for comic readers. One of superstar-writer Grant Morrison's earliest creations, the celebrity-pop-star-wunderkind-cum-superhero saga has of late been endlessly dogged by disputes over who owns the rights to republish the stories originally printed in the pages of 2000AD – meaning that […]

Creators Take Sides Over Zenith

A couple of weeks ago, I heard that Grant Morrison had sent a cease and desist notice to Rebellion over their declared intent to collect and publish The Complete Zenith, by Morrison and Steve Yeowell exclusively via their website and not through comic stores or distributors in a thousand-copy limited edition. However, talking to Rebellion […]

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.
