by Grant Morrison
I love reading Grant Morrison comic books. I love their complexities and simplicities. And I love that he wrote a book detailing his perspective on why comic books should be taken seriously, or at least why superhero movies are suddenly all the rage, what these so-called supergods tell us about ourselves. Morrison has sometimes crafted a very bizarre image for himself, but in my mind's eye I've always seen someone who's far more sober about his interests than he lets on. This book is a testament to that belief, and I'm glad that I'm finally getting around to reading it.
