Grant Morrison’s SUPERGODS

On July 19th Grant Morrison‘s SUPERGODS will hit the book shelves. Part history and part memoir, this non-fiction will explore the superhero archetype we all know and love. It will take readers on an in-depth journey through seven decades of superheroes from the big names such as Superman and Wonder Woman, to more obscure and forgotten heroes. A must-have for fans of Morrison, this book will let you take a glimpse into the mind of the comic book writer that penned the tales of heroes such as Superman, Batman, X-Men, the Fantastic Four, and more.

 

The official description for SUPERGODS:

From one of the most acclaimed and oracular writers in the world of comics comes a thrilling and provocative exploration of humankind’s great modern myth: the superhero.

For Grant Morrison, possibly the greatest of contemporary superhero storytellers, these heroes are not simply characters but powerful archetypes whose ongoing, decades-spanning story arcs reflect and predict the course of human existence: Through them, we tell the story of ourselves. In this exhilarating book, Morrison draws on history, art, mythology, and his own astonishing journeys through this alternate universe to provide the first true chronicle of the superhero-why they matter, why they will always be with us, and what they tell us about who we are.
