Grant Morrison reteams with his Batman Incorporated artist Chris Burnham to get dark with new horror mini-series from Image coming this year: Nameless.
We're taking all the dark stuff that Western culture's kind of obsessed with — the zombies and everything — beyond the limit and doing hopefully for now what H.P. Lovecraft did for the wartime generation.
Inspired from his run on Batman, the protaganist The Nameless will be a super-smart, high-level thinker with the ability to connect the dots of the story, but he's also a bit of a screw-up. He wasn't giving up many of the details, offering only bits of the character and theme.
I wanted to take it beyond that Frank Miller hard-boiled thing into a quite weird stream-of-consciousness, Lovecraftian kind of thing. And while Nameless could return for more stories, really this one is about the big test of the human experience against a nightmare.
Burnham hopes to take things in a different direction with the art, hoping to offer up something that will be relatively new to readers.
Everyone's read the exact same books, seen the same movies and TV shows, so everything's starting to feel a little comfortably same to me. I don't want the readers of a horror book to feel comfortable at all.
