Officials at New York Comic Con announced today that Grant Morrison will not be able to attend this year’s convention, which is taking place this week, February 6 – 8 at the Jacob K. Javits Center in New York City.

In a prepared statement, Grant Morrison said: “As a result of family issues, I won’t be able to make it to the New York ComicCon this week. My apologies to everyone, and particularly to the readers I won’t get a chance to meet this time around due to circumstances beyond my control. See you next time.”

We sincerely hope Grant isn’t having a “crisis” of his own.


  1. While I hope Grant’s issues are nothing serious, I can’t blame him in the least for possibly taking the opportunity to skip this show.

    The thought of being beseiged for days by whining and petchlent fanboys over FC 7 (a healthy number of them likely being abrasive types from the Northeast US) would keep me as far away as possible from this show.

  2. I think Grant doesn’t want the public to see that Batman laid a beating on him for the way Morrison treated him in Final Crisis.
