"I wanted my own Superman, ultimately. So we're kind of doing the revamp stuff I usually do for DC, on a much more universal character. There are so many more stories we can tell. We can kind of go anywhere with this guy after this." -- Grant Morrison

So, Wonder Woman: Earth One finally came out a day or two ago. Generally, I liked it, but I think there's going to be a LOT of different opinions on it. I'll post scans from it when I can find them, but for now, here's the interview IGN did with Morrison about the book.

WARNING: VERY VERY SPOILER HEAVY INTERVIEW BELOW!

And also art from inside the book. BUT MOSTLY SPOILERS!

"This is the tale of one man and his wolf against a totalitarian state and the ancient evil that sustains it. Part action thriller, part sword-and-sorcery, part romance, part science fiction, Klaus has given us free rein to revamp, reinvent and re-imagine a classic superhero for the 21st century. He’s making a list and he’s checking it twice. This Christmas it’s all about psychedelic shamanism, anti-authoritarian guerrilla gift-giving, and the jingle bells of freedom!" -- Grant Morrison

Of all the absurdist foes the Doom Patrol faced during Grant Morrison's run, my favourite without question is the abstract champion of nonsense Mr. Nobody, not the least because his origin is among the strangest you'll find in a mainstream comic.

"I keep coming back to, why has no one thought of this? This is like a Mark Millar idea. It seems so obvious, but it's been very engrossing, going back to the roots of Santa, the Siberian shamanistic kind of version of it, and then you've got the character Sinterklaas, and everything built up towards the familiar guy that we know." -- Grant Morrison

'I thought it was such a franchise-able thing. It allows me to create my own Batman, my own Superman, my own Doctor Who. There's so much you can do with this character. Everyone's familiar with it, but no one really knows him. It was all about just getting to the roots of this thing. Here's a massive icon everyone around the world knows -- how deep can we dig, how can we we make him human? We take this quite seriously, and do it like Frank Miller did "Batman: Year One," but with Santa Claus.' -- Grant Morrison

Less than a third from a 31-page comic )

 "I had this notion way back. I was doing the "All-Star Superman" stuff, and I got so into Superman, so into his character, so involved with what we were doing. When I finished, it occurred to me that I'd really love to do this -- with a character that wasn't owned by a corporation. [Laughs] I thought about, "Who does everyone know?" "Who's every kid's favorite hero?" I suddenly thought, "How come no one's told the 'Year One' of Santa Claus?" It seems so obvious. Basically, this is my "All-Star Santa Claus." [Laughs] "Santa Claus Year Zero." It's kind of neat approaching that character as if he was the world's greatest superhero, and we've never learned the origin."


--Grant Morrison

 

And with that introduction, I present to you four pages from Klaus #1 (of 6). Be shocked. Be amazed. Be mildly amused somebody green-lit this thing.




 

Ho Ho... Ho? )

Happy holidays!
