CA – Arkham Asylum Signing

gmorrison-aa

Comic writer extraordinaire Grant Morrison (JLA, Batman and Robin, New X-Men) appears at Meltdown Comics this Wednesday November 19, 2014 at 7:00 PM!

BIO:

Grant Morrison is highly regarded as one of the most original and inventive writers to work in the comic book industry. He is recognised as being one of the best-selling writers in the medium in the last 20 years.

His revisionist Batman book ARKHAM ASYLUM (with artist Dave McKean) has sold over 600,000 copies worldwide and won numerous awards, making it the most successful original graphic novel to be published in America. In 2009, Eidos released the best-selling video game BATMAN: ARKHAM ASYLUM inspired by the book.

Morrison is renowned for his ability to revive and re-imagine established characters, and has been orchestral behind runs of popular stories for the major companies including DC Comics characters; BATMAN, SUPERMAN, JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA, DOOM PATROL, ANIMAL MAN and for Marvel Comics the best-selling monthly, NEW X-MEN, MARVEL BOY and FANTASTIC FOUR.

In addition to his work with established brands he has created a number of revolutionary original series including We3, THE INVISIBLES, THE FILTH, FLEX MENTALLO, ZENITH, SEBASTIAN O, MARVEL BOY, and the cult classics KILL YOUR BOYFRIEND, THE MYSTERY PLAY, SEAGUY and JOE THE BARBARIAN.

His Graphic Novels and Comic Book collections have been translated into twenty languages and are sold worldwide to international acclaim.

In the last 5 years, his books have won multiple major industry awards, including The Eisner Award for best series three times for ALL STAR SUPERMAN and best limited series SEVEN SOLDIERS. Morrison has also won several Harvey Awards including Best Writer in 2009, a Scream Award, and attained Lifetime Achievement status at the British Eagle Awards. In 2011, he received five awards from Kapow! Stan Lee to Eagle’s including Best Writer at each, and Best Comic for Batman and Robin.

In 2008, Grant wrote the two top selling DC Comics titles FINAL CRISIS, and BATMAN. The controversial BATMAN R.I.P. storyline which has revolutionised the character was caught in a worldwide press storm with reports of Grant ‘killing Batman’ in every major newspaper and on TV. In 2013, he completed a seven year run on the BATMAN franchise having created the best-selling BATMAN & ROBIN. In 2009, he brought Bruce Wayne back into comic continuity in the series, BATMAN: THE RETURN OF BRUCE WAYNE, and wrapped up the saga in BATMAN INCORPORATED: LEVIATHAN.

In September 2011 as part of the new 52 re-launch at DC Comics, Grant began writing Superman again in the best-selling ACTION COMICS franchise, as the cornerstone book of the line.

In 2014, work at DC Comics includes a revisionist take on Wonder Woman for the Earth One Graphic Novel, WONDER WOMAN: THE TRIAL OF DIANA PRINCE. The epic, long-awaited maxi series, MULTIVERSITY, is due for release in June 2014.

There are also a number of new creator works in production, from the psychedelic Hollywood noir of ANNIHILATOR at Legendary, to the ultimate horror of NAMELESS at Image, via the last chapter of the Seaguy trilogy, SEAGUY: ETERNAL at DC/Vertigo.

As part of his remit at DC Comics, Morrison has also acted as a Consultant, developing updated approaches on minor characters and recreating them as springboards for other writers. He has also had award winning and critical success using this revival method for his own maxi-series, SEVEN SOLDIERS in 2006. His take on Superman for ALL-STAR SUPERMAN cements his ability to breathe life into old franchises and his four year story run on Batman has woven a complex and intriguing best-selling tale the likes of which has not been seen in decades.

Never shy of courting controversy, many of Morrison’s titles other than BATMAN, have made headlines. ST.SWITHIN’S DAY – a story about a young man from the North attempting to assassinate Margaret Thatcher – had questions raised in the House of Commons, as did THE INVISIBLES, Morrison’s highly-influential six-year long series about a group of occult terrorists (which has been said to have partly inspired the film THE MATRIX). Seen as cutting-edge and subversive, THE INVISIBLES and other series, such as THE NEW ADVENTURES OF HITLER, BIG DAVE and DOOM PATROL, have been the subjects of both academic discussion and popular media interest.

In 1997, Grant was the first comic book writer to be included as one of Entertainment Weekly’s top 100 creative people in America.

About Phil Jimenez:

At an early age, Phil Jimenez learned of the world of comics through his love of Star Wars, leading him into Marvel Comics series based on the film. In addition, he was a big fan of the Super Friends and Wonder Woman TV show (soon to become a big fan of her comic version, thanks to George Perez’s post-crisis re-launch).

Attending Manhattan’s School of Visual Arts, Phil developed the skills he needed to become a comic book artist, being picked by Neal Pozner to draw a two-part Cyborg story in Showcase Œ93. A few of Phil’s more well known works are Fairest, Team Titans, Tempest, Guy Gardner: Warrior, Robin, Invisibles, New X-Men, and is very well known for his work on Wonder Woman, JLA/Titans: Technis Imperative, and his many pin-ups (notably: numerous Secret Files and Origins) and group splashes including the Justice League, Legion of Super-Heroes, and DC One-Million. Jimenez is currently at work on a creator-owned DC title for their Vertigo line called “Otherworld.”

Phil would also act as the stand-in for Tobey Maguire during the costume-designing scene in the 2002 Spider-Man feature film. But, in addition to his excellent talent for visual art, Phil is an accomplished writer as well thanks in large part to the man who not only hired him, but also taught him to write, draw, and love passionately, Neal Pozner. Unfortunately, Neal passed away in 1994 after contracting the HIV virus.
