    Got this off Newsarama,

    Sounds great. I hope he covers the pulp heroes earth and the "Halloween" earth.

    Not too interested in the Multiverse, to be honest, but this sounds fun.

    Wow. This sounds.... hmm. What's the relationship between Moore and Morrison? Can grant really pitch his own Watchmen without alienation Moore even more?

    DC owns Watchmen, I believe, so anyone at DC could do anything with Watchmen that they wanted. Besides, the issue Morrison describes sounds more like an homage than anything else.

    I'm guessing we'll also see the Kirbyverse along with the Charlton and Captain Marvel universes.

    I know how some of you feel about ol' Grant these days, but I'm intrigued.

    A Grant Morrison project, and everyone's excited about it? April Fool's was a month ago, I thought.

    You misunderstand me. I think Grant Morrison is the best writer in the history of superhero comics, maybe in comics, period. I'm just unaccustomed to a lot of people being excited about a project of his. They all buy him, but they act like they hate him.

    Final Crisis is the only thing I'm aware of a lot of people buying and hating from Morrison.

    Well I don't know. Clearly, the man sells a lot of books, but every time he announces a project, and every time he does a project, people are tripping over themselves to denounce him for his "Silver Age fetish" or his writing being too hard to read, or any number of other ******ed ****-concepts.

    Oh, right, RIP. I didn't read that because it didn't seem interesting to me. I'm gonna get the trade of Final Crisis and see how I like that. But I've liked most of the other stuff I've read from Morrison.

    New X-Men? Critically acclaimed. #1 chart-topper for months upon months. And frakzillions of people -- I'd say around 50% of the fanbase, easy -- hated it. Hell, off the top of my head I can't really think of anyone other than myself who really loved it.

    I liked it. There were elements I didn't like, like the Weapon Plus stuff, but that was more because I was already tired of seeing Wolverine's backstory rehashed with a few tweaks by that point. Oh, and virtually everything involving Jean and the Phoenix Force because, frankly, I'm tired of seeing that retconned to hell, too. The rest of it was cool.

    I think it's one of Morrison's best, and probably the best X-Men run period. Only things I didn't like were Quitely's art and Morrison's characterization of Scott ("But Jean, they were just thoughts!" was so awful a line, it made me embarrassed to be a man).

    Scott's had so much bad characterization over the years that that basically is his proper characterization at this point. :csad:

    But...they were just thoughts...If thinking about having sex with another woman makes you unfaithful, then dammit, I don't want to be faithful.

    I've never read his New X-Men, and I'm a big Morrison fanboy.

    I'll have to give it a go.

    Cyclops becoming an actual character for once is a bad thing?
