Start Taking Drugs Now to Get Ready for Morrison and Robertson's Happy in September

The Outhouse advises anyone looking forward to Grant Morrison and Darick Robertson's Happy to start on a two month bender as soon as possible so they can reap maximum possible enjoyment from the comic.

According to an Image Comics press release sent out today:

Nick Sax isn't what you'd call a "winner." The anti-hero of the new Grant Morrison and Darick Robertson comic mini-series HAPPY! has been fired from the police force, turned on by his own employees in his murder-for-hire business (well, what would you expect?), is constantly drunk, and is waging a hopeless battle against the agonies of eczema. Sax seems beyond redemption, but saviors often take strange forms, and, in his case, it's the form of a tiny blue, feathered pony named Happy.

So we can see that this new project from derange writer Grant Morrison is at least semi-autobiographical, but we can also guess that Morrison, a practicing wizard whose work in comics is only slightly less difficult to comprehend than his predecessor, Aleister Crowley, took what scientists describe as "a whole shitload of drugs" in order to write Happy. As a result, readers should probably take a shitload of drugs if they want to read it. The press release continues:

"HAPPY! is a story I've wanted to write since hit-man Nick Sax and his 'partner' Happy the Horse appeared fully-formed in my head two years ago," said Morrison. In an interview at Newsarama, he described the impetus of its development: "I wanted to do a classic Christmas story – like A Christmas Carol or It's A Wonderful Life – but with all the junkies, killers and pedophiles which make our modern world so colorful!"

So Morrison, who believes that fully formed men and horses appear magically inside his head, believes that the only thing missing from the Dickens classic A Christmas Carol was junkies, killers, and pedophiles, and he is correcting this mistake with his own holiday tale, due out in comic shops on September 26th. You can pre-order the book now, but there is no guarantee that the printed pages will be soaked in liquid LSD before shipping, so it is probably safest to just get a bunch of your own and start taking it right away.

[Editor's Note: The Outhouse does not condone the use of psycadelic drugs or wizardry to enhance the enjoyment of comics without the advice of a qualified doctor or magician.]
