Grant Morrison

Grant Morrison is a Scottish comic book writer known for his non-linear narratives and counter-cultural leanings and often acclaimed as one of the most creative and intelligent writers ever to work in mainstream comics.

Morrison's career began when he was employed by DC Thompson in the 1980s.

Later he and artist Steve Yeowell created the Zenith series for 2000AD. Zenith, one of the then-trendy deconstructions of the superhero genre, featured a shallow rockstar-turned-superhero, reluctantly fighting a pandimensional alien conspiracy.

Most of Morrison's subsequent work has been for industry giant DC Comics. He wrote for the ongoing Doom Patrol series for several years, where his use of free writing techniques made for an inventive and often surreal departure from the (previously ailing) comic's norm.
