"I'm not sure whether Frazier Irving also signed a contract, but he went on to work at Marvel at that time too, on stuff like a Joe Casey Iron Man miniseries and an Inhumans thing called Silent War."

"Ferry signed an exclusive contract with Marvel right at that time. It was awful timing, and he went on to pencil a forgettable run of Ultimate Fantastic Four instead. To be fair, despite misusing his talent, Marvel was smart to snatch him up. They…"

"The return of the king! While I started and then stopped, I am reading and rereading pretty much nothing but Morrison in my spare time, so it's not like I'm far from the thoughts begun in this thread. I'm actually trying to take…"

"Bleh, kind of got sidetracked, gearing up for a vacation for two weeks in which I may have too much free time to continue this analysis, or the opposite of that. In any case, I plan to get back to it, while also capping off Return of Bruce Wayne…"

"The thing to keep in mind with Grant Morrison is that, for most of his work, if not all, nothing is done half-assed. Everything is intentional, every line of dialogue potentially matters, every panel and every angle. He often personally sketches…"

"I wouldn't necessarily claim my mind does work that way. When I first read Final Crisis, I hated it. In fact, that's true for most of Morrison's work.  But the sheer enormity and complexity lingers in my mind. I'm always…"

"Final Crisis #4 Pages 1 - 3 We begin our look at the post-apocalypse (present-Apokalips?) with narration by the Ray. I was curious why GM went with the '90s iteration rather than the third version of the character, which GM himself is…"

"Not to step on the toes of the great work done by Figs and Phillip, but if no one objects, I might continue their FC analysis. I don't know how many people actually read these threads, but I came upon it after searching for analyses of Morrison…"

"I was slightly mistaken - we see Batman get taken down by Kraken, but not quite subdued. We see narration by Jay Garrick to describe the return of Barry Allen, one of the early heroic triumphs in the story. Mandrakk appears in the final issue,…"

"Forgive me for dropping in late, but I'm reading this analysis at the beginning of 2017 and it's some great stuff. Forgive me if you guys have already dawned on this revelation I just had, as I'm only up to your discussion on FC #2,…"
