Grant Morrison is the master of the weird. The Invisibles, All-Star Superman, New X-Men, JLA, Animal Man, Doom Patrol, Multiversity, and more. He loves some multiverse action, and the fewer “rules” to contain his story, the better. He’s about to get unleashed on the Green Lantern by Grant Morrison series.
Master story teller Grant Morrison, and insanely talented master fantasy, science fiction, and super hero comics artist Liam Sharp are teaming up to take the Earth’s own space cop on a mind bending adventure.
It all starts rather simply, a plot that would work for a Men in Black story, Green Lantern finds an alien hiding out on Earth in plain sight. But as he investigates, this story gets very big and takes some very unexpected turns.
This could rock the Green Lantern Corps to their very foundations… and they’ve come back from being completely wiped from existence, so it takes a lot to rock them!
Liam Sharp is turning in some amazing work
Grant Morrison is known for writing challenging material. I’m curious, how does that affect you as an artist? You’re the one who has to bring these ideas to life, after all.

I really enjoy his scripts. They’re so entertaining because he’ll go off on a tangent halfway through a description of a scene and start talking about his influences, stuff he read when he was a kid, and the sort of pulp stuff he did and didn’t like. You get all his insight. He obviously loves writing so much. There’s a glee to his scripts that’s palpable.
But at the same time, he throws so much at you. The description for panel 2, page 2 is like four pages long! I’m just like, “Oh my god! This is half an issue! How am I going to fit everything into this page?”
There are also very specific references to characters from years and years ago. When I was initially reading the script, I was just constantly on the internet. Some of these are so obscure that the referencing goes really deep. You have to really look to find it. He knows his stuff.
Don’t miss out
