Well, isn’t this a nice piece of information? The folks at Gravitas Ventures have blessed us all with a free look at 2010’s Grant Morrison: Talking With Gods. The doc is now streaming for free online at Hulu; you can watch it here below.
The documentary on the popular comic book writer takes an inside look behind the scenes to show us more about the life of the man behind the creation of All Star Superman, The Invisibles, We3, and more. One of the greatest things about this documentary is that you actually feel like you get to know Morrison better.
In the film, Morrison talks about his childhood in Scotland, growing up with the threat of the nuclear bomb, and how he let his mind escape away from the threat. The documentary focuses mostly on his life and experiences, which in turn gives us a more in depth understanding of a lot of his comic book creations, but mostly his work on The Invisibles, Animal Man, All Star Superman, and Final Crisis.
Talking With Gods features several creators like Jill Thompson, Matt Fraction, Geoff Johns, Frank Quitely, Cameron Stewart, Frazer Irving, and more to open up the mysteries of Morrison’s mind. These artists and writers have either worked with Morrison on some of his greatest works, or have been with him in the process of developing, such is the case with Mark Waid. In the documentary, Waid tells a story of how he and Morrison met Superman at a convention, and how the cosplayer ended up being the inspiration behind All Star Superman. I could talk about how interesting and awesome the documentary is all day, but why don’t I stop and just let you watch it.
This documentary is a must-see for any comic book fan out there, and you can watch it here below.
