Grant Morrison’s Batman stories under the microscope in new book

 

The Sequart Organization has announced the release of The Anatomy of Zur-en-Arrh: Understanding Grant Morrison’s Batman, by Cody Walker.

Grant Morrison has made a career of redefining heroes, but his work with Batman has been the most comprehensive. From Arkham Asylum and JLA to his recent seven-year run on the Batman titles, Morrison has redefined and reworked the Caped Crusader from the ground up. He’s also introduced new characters (such as Damian Wayne) and new concepts (such as Batman, Inc.).

With a cover by David A. Frizell., The Anatomy of Zur-En-Arrh looks at how Morrison’s run understands and reinterprets Batman’s long history. An exclusive interview with Morrison rounds out the book.

The book runs 272 pages and is available in print (list price $16.99) and on Kindle (list price $6.99).
