Grant Morrison spills on NUperman:


    Quote:
    What have you got lined up in your writing for Superman?

    I want to solve some of the problems that have grown up around the character. People now ask: ‘Why the hell would he dress up like that?’ I want to make Superman a more contemporary character. We’ll be changing how he looks, dresses and behaves. He’ll be more like the Superman who appeared in 1938 – more socially active and a champion of the oppressed.

    He’s taken his underpants off in the current comics…

    With what we’re doing he’s wearing jeans and a T-shirt – a Bruce Springsteen version of Superman, that’s the angle we’re taking. The cape’s still indestructible but the rest is picked up in a shop.

Sigh. \:\-\(


    Quote:
    What are you proudest of getting into a comic book?

    I’m proud of having Bruce Wayne stumbling through the streets of Gotham high on heroin.

I have not read Morrison's Batman. Now I have even less interest in doing so.

I'm gladder and gladder I haven't bought many new comics over the last six years. I'm gonna stick with my TPB's, Chronicles, and Showcases.

Thanks for getting the Showcases and Chronicles right, DC! PLEASE don't blow THEM.
