This is meant to be a one-stop shop for discussing the works of Grant Morrison. There’s just a few things I wanted to try on a new thread, as well as bring everything under the one roof.

I actually have the first 4 issues of the six in the original Prestige format series.  I haven't read them yet, but I was thinking now would be a be a good time to.  I'll be able to get the last two stories shortly as well.

 

Possibly the TV junkies on this board would be interested in discussing them?  I was a bit surprised no-one's mentioned them yet.  The thing is that I only know the TV show by reputation, having never seen an episode, so I'd just be able to read them as comics, rather than commentary on the show or anything.

Just to let everyone know, including the resident Whovians, that next week sees the publication of Doctor Who Classics Series 5 #4 (of 6)

 

Just about all the old strips from Dr Who Monthly/Weekly are worth a look, with the best art and writing talent of 2000AD on them.  There are several collections out so far, which collect them in different formats.

 

Anyway, you'll never guess who writes one of the two stories in issue 4.  The eponymous Grant.

 

So, it might be worth buying and discussing on the board here.  Anyone who'd be up for leading a discussion on all 3 of Morrison's Dr Who stories may just qualify for a token of gratitude.

Always a sense of satisfaction in adding another hyperlink to the list above.  52 is now up there.

...In SUPERGODS he mentions a strip that he did for a local weekly in bonnie Scotland , a super-hero strip set in the area , wriiten AND drawn that lasted for 150 strips !!!!!!!!!!!


...These strips were colorized , Figs , in that series...if you want to seat yourself upon a " bloody Yanks !!!!!!!!!!! " high dudgeon steed of righteousness regarding such " Ameri-Disney-$tyle." tampering !!!!!!!!!!!

I am filled with shame. I completely forgot about this reading project when I read three Grant Morrison miniseries recently. Here's my blog discussion of them: Grant Morrison Trilogy (Seaguy; WE3; Vimanarama). I'd be happy to discuss them, either here or on my blog.

I love all three of the artists Morrison teamed up with on these series. Of the three, Frank Quitely turned in some of his best work ever. Philip Bond is highly underrated.

I think story-wise, I enjoyed Vimanarama the most. Just so unlike anything else I'd ever read. Had so much fun with the Indian family dynamics.

Cheers,  Mark!  I'll dig em out and respond to your reviews. Dont have a lot of time these days, but I'll try to get around to it soon.  Haven't read Vinamarama yet at all, so looking forward to that.

Comixology is having a sale on Grant Morrison's DC output.

The sale's on 'till the 26th.

So I wrote a thing sitting at the laundromat today: an explanation of why I *didn't* want to read any discussion of Grant Morrison here by way of my personal history reading his work. I thought better of posting it, then took a glance this way and found out that this thread is dead anyway! Too bad; it was dramatic, but I kind of liked it. "Sorry, Figs, but as a massive Morrison fan for nearly thirty years, I can't have you poking around in my head "The Empire of Chairs" style", is the gist of it. Peace out.
