      It's from Morrison's Action Comics run (new 52) but it's based on a classical DC story idea:

      I think Grant is fine with any pronouns, though.
      Liam Sharp is one of his recent most closest collaborators and friend of his, and still mentions him with "he/him" pronouns on Twitter. And Grant seems cool about it.
      Considering his history, Grant is the least surprising person to come out as non-binary honestly, while also being completely cool and not overly militant about it.

        There are two types of pronoun people, there are the ones who do it because it makes sense to them and don't demand that you change yourself overnight to accommodate them

        And there are those who do it because its the latest in a long line of look at me narcissistic antics that they believe will fill the gaping hole they have instead of a personality and demand that you bend over backwards for them

        The first get me to respect them, and the second I could give less than two shits if I remember and Morrison is one of the few in the first column

          I think Morrison is the type who did it for 'business', and chose the least damaging and least obnoxious DEI option on the table.

          I know Bryan Talbot used alternate pronouns for a character, but he used them in a similar fashion that Moore did in Miracleman, which was a gigantic tumor alien. Talbot used them in the third book of Luther Arkwright, for an advanced humanoid hermaphrodite that wanted to kill all of humanity. It felt like it was kind shoved in there last minute, in keeping with the times, because "it" would have been considered offensive.

    Now that I think about it, I don't think I've ever read anything by Morrison except one that was storytimed here. It had someone shooting a president and Dr Manhattan reading a comic book. The story was non-linear and pretty pretentious.

      I follow him on IG. Seems he moved to Berlin and got really, really into their whole BDSM night club scene they have, considering the shit he draws now lmao. Was it something to do with that?

        That's hilarious considering he was going through a "wholesome phase" and trying to market himself as a good ally and all that before getting canceled. There's even a Morrison Vertigo pitch from around the early 00s that was really sex filled and Stewart was supposed to draw it but he dropped out.

        He was a SJW who tried to cancel Rafael Albuquerque, the brazilian guy from that Batgirl cover and Kevin Maguire on Twitter.
        Then a bunch of women metooed him, like Elsa Charretier who said he hit on her even after she said she had a husband.

      They can find someone who can ape his style.
      I mean, I do love Dan Mora and he can continue drawing DC for the next 20 years as far as I am concerned, but he's essentially doing a lot of what you get from Evan "Doc" Shaner or Chris Samnee and if all three of them worked on a 6 or 8 issue arc and split up art duties, I don't think anyone would find it jarring at all.

      So they can easily find someone to finish Seaguy.

        Who's they? Seaguy didn't sell well, Vertigo no longer exists, Berger's vanity imprint at Dark Horse would never pick it up since it doesn't sell and the imprint is barely on its last legs (or maybe it's already dead)

    I read All-Star Superman for the first time last night, and I found it fairly enjoyable. Reminded me of Moore's "Whatever Happened" with how every issue focused on a different aspect of Superman's life (and with him "dying", of course).
    Some aspects of it I found disjointed were Quintum & the P.R.O.J.E.C.T., which seemed like it was invented for the story to artificially tie all of his "Feats" back together. While the lighthearted goofball plots (Supes arm wrestling Samson & Atlas, Jimmy Olsen's "For a Day" column, Lex & the Baboon) were all amazing, the attempts at Drama sometimes came across as Melodrama. I really enjoyed Zibarro's Lament, the Tragedy of Bar-El & Lilo, Kandor Unbottled, & Lex's Realization. But I found the entire Smallville issue (6) & Earth Q to be a bit over the top.
    The worst thing about All-Star is how sudden the ending is. I thought it was a complete anti-climax, or was meant to lead into another epilogue issue, but then I read in the Glossary of the Deluxe TPB that - apparently - the Golden Superman from issue 6 was him from the future "after spending several millennia meditating inside the sun." I think that is a good way to end it, but it should've been IN the comic instead of the supplemental materials.

    As for my 3 favorites by him, I've actually only read 3 things by him: Serious House, Ultra Comics (from Multiversity) and ASS.
    Filth, Doom Patrol, Flex Mentallo, Animal Man: I plan to read all these eventually.
    I've even got the Flex books on my shelf, but I don't wanna read them until I reach the proper point in DP which I plan to read from all the way back in the Golden Age because it's one of the few teams to not really be affected by all the Crisis events that have happened. The Cliff Steele inside Robotman in Milk Wars is the same Cliff from My Greatest Adventure.

      I think some of the Superman stuff in ASS is a callback to his time on JLA in the 90s.
