SDCC Thoughts on Morrison’s Vertigo Work

From the Vertigo Panel coverage at CBR:

“One of the things I’m always asked at conventions,” said Stewart, “is when is the next Seaguy.” Stewart said that he’s been asked that question for five years, and now both “Seaguy 2: Slaves of Mickey Eye” and “Seaguy 3: Eternal,” will be out soon.

This is followed by the announcement that Sean Murphy, a young artist who I dig a lot (here is his website), is going to be the artist on Morrison’s upcoming Warcop series.

To quote Dr. Sam Beckett, “Oh boy!”

Eh, I need to read Seaguy again. Didn’t make that much sense to me when I read it, or have much an impact on me, although I am a bit more used to Morrison style now so maybe I would get more out of it.

I wasn’t mad on Seaguy, but I know I’ll be reading these in the vain hope of making sense of the first mini – and I know it won’t work

Awwwwww yay! Hopefully there’ll be some other new creator-owned-ish stuff as well.

Been too many years since we saw something really NEW from M.

I was obsessed with this when it came out, very excited for it.

It had some of the better “word play” I’ve seen from Morrison.

Now THIS is exciting news.

What makes me most excited was the announcement that there would be a complete Seaguy trade somewhere down the line. All three miniseries in one book seems right to me.

About freaking time!

Seaguy was great and wonderfully weird. I’m looking forward to more.

Da fug!

The first mini is a complete story, and everything you need to know is in there!

Great news. I loved Seaguy, especially Cameron Stewart’s art. Also good to see that Morrison is doing some more work outside the DCU. I don’t care for his Batman, Final Crisis, etc…

“The first mini is a complete story, and everything you need to know is in there!”

I know there are people who understood it. I’m not one of them. I didn’t get 7 Soldiers #1 either.

BTW – How did you do that quote?

I’m not sure if I like ‘Seaguy’ despite it not quite adding up to anything sensible, or because of it.

It’s certainly a lesser work for Morrison, but an incredibly unique one.

Yaaaay!
I’m endlessly shocked that the old canards about Morrison’s supposed “pretentiousness” and “impenetrability” get trotted out for something so totally devoted to playfulness and fun (underlying subject matter notwithstanding; that only adds a nice zest to things).
