This book makes it clear that the only true "super god" in the multiverse of Grant Morrison's mind is Grant Morrison. I wish this book had taken a better researched and more well-round approach to the subject matter. Instead what is on offer here is Morrison's own opinions about some of the "big" writers and their creations iin comics. Most of this can be summarized as "When that creator came up with that idea and everyone loved it, it really wasn't that great. Now when I wrote pretty much the same story 5 years later, it was awesome and perfect." Really, Grant? Just because you write comic books doesn't mean it's not time to grow up.
The book gets even worse when he break off to drone on about his personal quest for enlightenment and inspiration. Who knew that you could make allegedly getting abducted by aliens while tripping your gourd off in the desert mind-numbingly boring? Somehow (Zip! Pow! Sock! Choke!) he manages to do exactly that.
I bought this book and I listened to all of it just so I could write this review. Now, much like the Rime of the Ancient Submariner, I am warning everyone- if you love comics, do not waste your time on this book.
