In the latest installment of our Recommended Reads series, Graduate Assistant and M.A. student Jeremy Carnes recommends Supergods: What Masked Vigilantes, Miraculous Mutants, and a Sun God from Smallville Can Teach Us About Being Human by Grant Morrison.
“It’s a bird. It’s a plane. No it’s…” Grant Morrison. Acclaimed comic book author and creator behind such feats as All Star Superman, Batman: Arkham Asylum, and his own personal creation, The Invisibles, Grant Morrison is a tour de force in the comic community. Having worked for both of the big two (Marvel and DC), we can trust Morrison to have a view and knowledge of the comic book world that few others possess. Pair this superior knowledge with Morrison’s superhuman ability to spin a great tale, and we are left with Supergods.
