Grant Morrison, who will end his runs on Action Comics by issue #16 and Batman Inc. by issue #12, may be finished with superheroes in general for a while.
In an interview with CBR that the popular website allegedly obtained by plying Morrison with mushrooms dipped in PCP, the prolific writer and DC Comics star says that he may be just about finished with superhero comics, at least at his current rate of production.
"The idea was always that I'd keep doing it as long as it gave me a lot of pleasure and allowed me to express myself . And it still does, but I can see the end coming closer," said Morrison. "I'm not saying that I'll never write superheroes again. It's just that my relationship to them has changed especially after finishing the book and I’m not sure if I want to maintain the same kind of relentless level of production."
Morrison, who is a practicing wizard, still has a Wonder Woman graphic novel in the works, as well as Multiversity, an eight issue comic that is coming out, according to our best projections, never, but he does not appear to intend to start up anymore superhero projects at DC. Image Comics recently announced Happy, a christmas story about pedophiles, from Morrison, Darick Robertson, and the chemical compound lysergic acid diethylamide, which has led some to question whether Morrison may also be done with DC. Morrison, however, insists that he has more Vertigo comics planned, which bodes well for the beleaguered imprint.
Morrison also mentioned a desire to write screenplays and novels, as they pay, reportedly, a shitload of money, and shitloads of money, reportedly, pay for shitloads of drugs. Morrison likes drugs a whole shitload. Allegedly.
Head on over to CBR to read the full interview, but be careful about touching your monitor while there, as you may be in danger of absorbing psychedelic chemicals through the screen.
