"Rowdy" Roddy Piper Reported Dead at 61
Grant Morrison spent some time on the CBR yacht during Comic-Con International in San Diego where the Scottish superstar discussed designer Chip Kidd’s declaration of the logo for “New X-Men” as being his favorite logo in the history of comics and how Morrison’s design sold Marvel’s then-publisher Bill Jemas on the series title.
Morrison also dives into DC Comics’ New 52, discussing the fact that “Action Comics,” being set five years in the past, isn’t affected by the ret-conning of Superman’s marriage, the pressures of being responsible for re-telling and updating the origins of the Man of Steel and why he took on the challenge of tackling Superman for his part of DC’s massive relaunch initiative.
“Supergods” is also discussed, including how writing the book affected his approach to and stance on the concept of superheroes, whether or not he sees a point in his life where he’ll stop writing superheroes, his love of working with B and C-list characters and the status of his ongoing film project, “Sinatoro.”
