Highlights from Grant Morrison's New York Comicon panel

NYCC '08: THE GRANT MORRISON PANEL - NEWSARAMA

1. More Seaguy!

2. More new ideas and fewer corporate title

3. He answered *every* question the audience threw at him

One audience member asked about the effect of psychadelic drugs on Morrison's writing. "They were very involved in The Invisibles." Morrison said that for years, he was completely straight edge but around the time he turned 30, he decided to do all the things he'd never done before, including transvestitism and "a lot of psychedelic drugs." He explained that the principle cast of The Invisibles were essentially five characters each based on elements of his own personality.

A fan then asked about how Morrison's experience in Katmandu--which famously informed a great deal of The Invisibles--has impacted the rest of his writing. "The Katmandu thing was really weird because I had taken a little bit of hash, but it was such a small bit and the experience I had was so profound and nothing like that has ever happened again." He explained that part of the idea of taking so many drugs in the '90s was trying to replicate that experience. "I tried all kinds of things to se if it was possible, and nothing took me to that place. It was something quite unusual and different and I was never able to get back there again."

One audience member asked Morrison to tell the "two nuns and a donkey" joke referred to in Arkham Asylum, which Morrison did--but he explained several times that he didn't tell jokes well and in order to illustrate his point, diverged halfway through, started explaining things and then gave up and said, "Which takes us back to the punchline and that's why I can't tell jokes!"

Skakespeare Manga Proves Popular

Comic book Shakespeare plays a hit

I really want to see a MacBeth/Battle Royale crossover.

A British publishing house is expanding its line of comic book versions of Shakespeare's plays after its first set of comics became a hit in Britain and Asia.

SelfMadeHero first published seven titles from its Manga Shakespeare collection last year. The series converts the classic plays into stylized comics using the Japanese manga style.

The manga genre uses vivid colours and exaggerated physical attributes with action-packed storylines.

Each of Shakespeare's works has been abridged for the comics and illustrated in its own style.

Romeo and Juliet is pictured as a modern drama where the warring Capulets and Montagues are represented as Yakuza mafia clans in present-day Tokyo.

Some keep to more traditional settings, such as Richard III, which is set in Gothic medieval England.

Besides those two works, the others translated into manga style include Hamlet, The Tempest, A Midsummer Night's Dream, Macbeth and Julius Caesar.
