BOOM! Studios rocked the comics industry to its foundations today when they tweeted a promo image simply stating the name Grant Morrison along with a BOOM! Studios logo. That alone is enough to speculate that the enigmatic bald creator might be working on a new project for BOOM!, but Morrison soon confirmed the rumor by appearing in his astral form simultaneously to all potential comic book readers and announcing the project via cryptic prophecy.
"OOOOOZAAAAMMFFFFHMMMMMMM," said the flaming blue translucent disembodied head of Morrison as his eyebrows crawled across his chin on their own volition. Morrison's eyes then turned into miniature mouths that started humming the South African national anthem and a unicorn horn sprouted from his nose.
"What's going on in there," said one concerned parent, hearing the noises coming from her fifteen year old comic reading son's bedroom.
"Nothing mom!" the teenager shouted back sullenly. "It's just Grant Morrison announcing a comic again!"
"That's nice," the mother replied.
Morrison's head then vanished in a puff of sulfurous smoke as all the light bulbs in every house he appeared in around the globe blew out and all the doors and windows slammed shut. While it hasn't been confirmed, we're reasonably certain this means that Grant Morrison is set to guest write an issue of Lumberjanes, thought it's also possible Morrison was hinting at 1000 years of darkness for humanity. Expect more info on this to either be revealed at San Diego Comic Con, or by slaughtering a goat and reading its entrails.
