COMICS: Grant Morrison To Leave ACTION COMICS And BATMAN INCORPORATED
Depending on whether or not you're a fan of Grant Morrison, this will either come as very good or very bad news. The writer has confirmed that he is leaving superhero comics behind and wrapping up his runs on DC's Action Comics and Batman Incorporated.
In a lengthy interview with Comic Book Resources, Grant Morrison has revealed that he is leaving behind superhero comic books in order to concentrate on his other projects (more details on which can be found by clicking on the link below). The writer is known for telling rather convoluted and often confusing stories which some fans love and others hate. For that reason, this is likely to come as either good or bad news, while the future of the two titles he currently writes for DC (Action Comics and Batman Incorporated) remains unknown.
"The idea was always that I'd keep doing it as long as it gave me a lot of pleasure and allowed me to express myself . And it still does, but I can see the end coming closer. I'm coming to the end of long runs and stories I've had planned in my notebooks for years and the stuff I’m developing now is quite different."
"The "Action Comics" run concludes with issue #16, "Batman Incorporated" wraps up my take with issue #12, and after that I don’t have any plans for monthly superhero books for a while. "Multiversity" is eight issues and I’m 30-odd pages into a Wonder Woman project but those are finite stories."
"I'm not saying that I'll never write superheroes again. It's just that my relationship to them has changed especially after finishing the book and I’m not sure if I want to maintain the same kind of relentless level of production."
Batman Incorporated is the brainchild of Morrison and a result of a story has been telling for years, so some sort of continuation of that seems unlikely (especially when there are arguably too many Batman titles as it is). Action Comics on the other hand is one of DC's main books and many fans have already started a fairly vocal campaign for Scott Snyder (Batman) to take over writing duties.
