Superheroes are enjoying a cultural resurgence, dominating the box office and breaking out of specialty comics stores onto the shelves of mainstream retailers. A leading figure behind the superhero Renaissance is Grant Morrison, long-time architect of the DC Comics' universe and author of many of the most successful comic books in recent years. Known for his anarchic original creations - Zenith, The Invisibles, The Filth, We3 - as well as for his acclaimed serialized comics - JLA, Superman, Batman, New X-Men - Morrison has radically redefined the superhero archetype.

Known for his eccentric lifestyle and as a practitioner of ""pop magic,"" Morrison sees the superhero as not merely fantasy but a medium for imagining a better humanity. Drawing on a variety of analytical approaches, this first-ever collection of critical essays on his work explores his rejuvenation of the figure of the superhero as a means to address the challenges of modern life.
