GRANT MORRISON: THE EARLY YEARS by Timothy Callahan studies the celebrated creator's early career. Grant Morrison has redefined comics from his trailblazing creation of ZENITH, through his metatextual innovations on ANIMAL MAN, to his Dadaist super-heroics in DOOM PATROL. Along the way, he also addressed Batman with his multi-layered masterpiece ARKHAM ASYLUM and the literary GOTHIC storyline. This book examines all five works in detail, drawing out their running and evolving themes. Using plain language, Callahan opens up Morrison's sometimes difficult texts and expands the reader's appreciation of their significance, creating a study accessible to both Grant Morrison aficionados and those new to his work. An extended interview with Morrison on his early career rounds out the volume.
