Batman Fights the Anti-Christ!

January 23, 2007

Grant Morrison is the current writer of ‘Batman,’ and is best known for his work on mind-bending titles like ‘Animal Man,’ ‘All-Star Superman,’ ‘Seven Soldiers’ and ‘New X-Men.’ If you’ve read any of these comics, you all too well that Morrison is nuts.

See? Nuts. Despite this fact (or perhaps because of it) I’m a huge fan of his work. In a recent interview, he gave fans a teaser of Batman #666…

“Issue #666,” he [Morrison] laughs, “is Damian [Batman’s son] grown up as Batman of the future fighting the Anti-Christ.”

Delightful! I’m a little embarrassed to say it, but this is the most excited I’ve been about a comic book in a while.

    Sounds fun. Reminds me I haven't picked up ASS in a while.

    Lord, I hope they don't turn this into Earth-666 or something.
    Also, I really should start reading these things regularly. I still haven't started Ultimates 2.


  3. Animal Man was a work of genius. I will never ever forget the scene when Animal Man turns around and sees…if you've read it, you know what i mean, and i don't want to spoil it for those who haven't.oh yeah, and the wile e. coyote issue…one of the best comics ever.

    I haven't had a chance to read Animal Man yet, but have heard a lot of good things about it. I'm in the proccess of trying to track down a complete run of the series, since there were only three trade paperback collections produced.If you didn't know, Christopher, Animal Man plays a very prominent role in the weekly DC comic '52.' Morrison is one of the writers, so you know everything is trippy and strange and beautiful.


  5. unfortunately, in the last year i basically stopped reading comics. been meaning to blog about it, but i just reached the point when nothing really excited me. maybe i just became jaded having read comics for twenty years, but even the supposedly cutting-edge stuff just seemed…blah.one of the major turning points for me was when i finally stopped buying DAREDEVIL after reading it nonstop from the 1980s onwards. people were saying how good bendis was, and i simply hated his run.but you really need to go and read morrison's animal man run, from #1 to #26. what's great is that stuff that happened in the first few issues is explained in the last few issues, showing that he really had it all planned out. brilliant, touching and thought-provoking stuff.the only thing i still buy is PLANETARY, although i think there's only one issue left, and it's been a pain following it because it is so darned irregular.
