It was certainly really bothering at first, but the more I think about it the neater it is. I actually haven't read much of Morrison beyond Arkham Asylum: A Serious Home on Serious Earth. What would you suggest?Yeeeesssssss....a new Grant Morrison fan in the making
Anyways, I haven't read all I should from Grant Morrison, from what I know I can recommend:
-All-Star Superman, probably the best Superman mini-series you'll ever read in your life.
-Morrison's Batman run, which by now is a collection of Trades that follows in this order:
Batman & Son --> Batman: The Black Glove --> Batman R.I.P. --> Batman & Robin --> Batman: The Return Of Bruce Wayne --> Batman Incorporated.
And now, coming this year:
Batman: Leviathan, DO NOT TOUCH THIS ONE unless you've read all the trades I mentioned before, otherwise you'll be confused as fuck, Morrison's work on Batman was very cerebral and acumulative, every event sums up with each other and the entire story goes back and forth constantly, if you have the time for this endeavor, then read it in order.
You could also check out his other work which I haven't read yet, like his runs on both Animal Man and Doom Patrol, The Invisibles, Fantastic Four, to name a few.
*inconspicuously takes notes*
Morrison's work on Animal Man is better than either his Batman run or All-star.
Two things that Feli neglected to mention is that both of those are heavily reliant on the legacies of both characters, digging out old ideas from the silver and bronze age, especially All-star Superman, which is pretty much a loveletter to Superman's entire legacy and might even be a bit hard to follow if you aren't well-versed in the character.
Both runs are incredibly good though, but neither of them even compare to the work of genius that is Animal Man, a series that is up there with Watchmen and Sandman in my opinion.
Another great read is the event The Seven Soldiers, but it's quite an undertaking to get through.
He is also one of the group of five writers who worked on the series 52, a series that I only read about four months ago, and he returns to write animal man in the series after twenty years.
A lot of people love his run on New X-men, though I'm really not a huge fan of it, but I've found that usually it's fans are people who haven't read a lot of X-men, so if this is an accurate description of you, by any means, go ahead and pick up the first trade.
At the moment I'm reading Morrison's run on JLA, and it's a lot of fun, despite the unfortunate fact that this is during the "Superman Blue" era, and Supes's costume looks fucking awful.
I've heard good things about Doom Patrol, but I haven't gotten around to reading it yet.
