Laura Sneddon, whom we claim as our own and have dubbed ‘Sneddsy’ against her protestations, today has an interview with Grant Morrison up on The Guardian’s website. In the piece, which focuses on his upcoming Wonder Woman graphic novel at DC, Morrison also discusses the current Zenith situation – as well as revealing off-hand that a new Seaguy story has been written and is due for 2014.
I won’t take large quotes from her article because go support mainstream comics journalism, folks, but the interview – conducted at the Edinburgh Fringe – does feature Morrison talking about the situation with Zenith. This would be the comic he wrote with Steve Yeowell which were recently reprinted by publishers Rebellion – seemingly against Morrison’s will:
We, uh, we spent five grand on lawyers’ fees. They sent [Rebellion] letters. We were very keen to discuss it and we’ve never heard back from them. All I can say is that we tried to get into a discussion with them and they just didn’t reply.
And right at the end of the interview, he also mentions that Seaguy will be returning in 2014, for a new story:
It never sold well, but it’s my thing. I want Seaguy to remain as my statement about life and death and the universe.
Go read it! He also talks at length about the history of Wonder Woman, his approach to the character, and what we should expect from himself and artist Yanick Paquette in the story.
