So I hate to do this after you've put so much effort into this new thread, Figs, but I was just thinking...
This project would probably work great as a group rather than a thread, wouldn't it? That way, there could be separate discussions for each of Morrison's works, while keeping them all under the same umbrella.
Does that make sense, or is it a fool idea? And would we want to make that much effort at this point?
Any decision will be up to Jupiter when he gets back from his break, but in the meanwhile I’d like to put forward this possible compromise.
I'll probably reflect more on this as we approach the recent Batman arc, but I got today Batman: The Black Casebook, the TPB that collects some of the '50s Batman stories that inspired Morrison — including the Batmen of All Nations / Club of Heroes, the Batman of Zur-En-Arrh, & etc. — and it features an introduction by Grant, talking about how these stories informed his run (specifically "Batman R.I.P."). It's interesting stuff, and if you don't already have it, I encourage you to get it as a worthwhile supplement to these books.
