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.
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: â€˜Why the hell would he dress up like that?â€™ I want to make Superman a more contemporary character. Weâ€™ll be changing how he looks, dresses and behaves. Heâ€™ll be more like the Superman who appeared in 1938 â€“ more socially active and a champion of the oppressed.
Heâ€™s taken his underpants off in the current comicsâ€¦
With what weâ€™re doing heâ€™s wearing jeans and a T-shirt â€“ a Bruce Springsteen version of Superman, thatâ€™s the angle weâ€™re taking. The capeâ€™s still indestructible but the rest is picked up in a shop.
Quote:What are you proudest of getting into a comic book?
Iâ€™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.
Thanks for getting the Showcases and Chronicles right, DC! PLEASE don't blow THEM.
