Not content with her Jubilee celebrations, the Queen has named Grant Morrison a 'Member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire'!
Arise Sir Morrison! (Not quite)
Every year for her Birthday, Queen Elizabeth II names a bunch of people (well, it's not her, but it's done through her, she's the middle man) to honour with various orders of chivalry, she basically dubs them with a sword and gives them a medal.
And this year, comic-book legend Grant Morrison has been named among them! The current Action Comics
and Batman Incorporated
writer was given an MBE (Member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire) for his services to literature, which while it's the lowest rung on the ladder, is still pretty cool. Plus, it's a sign of the growing respect that comics have gained in the wider world.
I just wonder what the hell G-Moz will have to say to her Madge!
