The first part of my Blog Tour is now up, in which the wonderful Grant Morrison fan site Deep Space Transmissions interviews me about the Seven Soldiers book. Since that interview was done, the book has gained a title – it’s going to be called An Incomprehensible Condition: An Unauthorised Guide To Grant Morrison’s Seven Soldiers. And it should be out tomorrow, with luck (I’m waiting on a couple of my beta-readers to get back to me. Once I have their comments, though, I will only have to incorporate their thoughts, which is maybe eight hours’ work total.)
As Deep Space Transmissions doesn’t have a comment section, feel free to comment about the interview here.
Tomorrow, I’m interviewed by Gavin at Investigations Of A Dog, about self-publishing.
I’m intrigued by the Invisibles=Sgt. Pepper’s bit. Do you have other Beatles album/Morrison comic alignments?
I’m only halfway thru the book but I am enjoying it quite a bit so far. Thanks for writing it!
Darn, I just finished my potential title list!
Oh well: more for me…
“George Orwell wrote some of his best critical work on the Billy Bunter stories and seaside postcards.”
I can see what you mean here, but wasn’t Orwell merely damning of Billy Bunter books and seaside postcards? Wasn’t it all part of that high-minded leftism that sees popular culture as manipulating the minds of the masses? (Similar to the novel-writing machines in ‘1984.’)
