 I would like to give a shout out to my buddy Joxxx5 who showed me this link.
 

As far as future projects, Morrison promised he'd deliver a classic Wonder Woman story "soon" and that as far as the release of his announced "Multiversity" project, "We can't get a concrete date because Frank Quitely's drawing one of them. But I think it's going to be next summer." The writer also said that one of the "Multiversity" issues would be called "Thunder World" – a title he came up with for the Marvel Family earth because he was tired of always having to work the word "Shazam" into the titles of their adventures for legal reasons.

The final volume in his "Sea Guy" cycle of miniseries for Vertigo – to be called "Sea Guy: Eternal" – will be on its way in the near future. "I've written the first two, and I think this one is the best of them all," he said. "The idea for them came from the world we were living in. The idea being that we're suddenly a part of a big brother society with cameras and surveillance. There's five surveillance cameras for everybody in the country including children and people in prison – five for every living person! If you read Alan Moore's recent interview, he talks about camera being in Northampton where he lives that'll go, 'Hey you! Pick up that cigarette butt!' and actually talk to you. It was that sense that we've all been infantilized – the sense that we're all buying cartoons we watched as a kid and playing little games. We're all sitting in our own little worlds with the internet. I wanted to write about that and mythologize it. And then it became the story of a guy's entire life but sort of strange. It was just responding to the weird feeling of the world these days."

Later, Morrison announced that DC would publish an "Absolute We3" soon which would include ten new pages from Frank Quitely that fill in some parts of the story the creator's couldn't work in with the book's original three-issue format. Morrison is also confident that DC will find a way to publish a collected edition of he and Quitely's "Flex Mentallo" series, although no specifics on that plan could be given.

you know in the original On the Ledge article page it said Flex Mentallo would be released in trade in one of the "Coming Next Month" sections...but I could find record of it nowhere else
 
anyways, what's actually got me excited is Seaguy: Eternal!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was saying about seven months ago I was really excited for that to be released and was hoping it would be this year, I guess I can wait a little longer but I do want it now dammit!

We3 and Superman All-Star Absolutes, the Invisibles absolutes were mentioned, where are they?  We3 movie, is that still in limbo? G-Mo is great.

he is great but I do sometimes get annoyed that you can have a Vertigo reader or a Grant Morrison reader...a lot of his stuff gets priority in trade collections and other stuff is ignored and I'm not always happy about that...Animal Man for example...Milligan, Veitch, Delano (great runs) and Prosser (haven't read yet) all had runs after him but only his 26 issues were ever collected...I don't like publishers showing obvious favoritism to certain writers...on the other hand DC has been very reluctant to publish Seaguy so I guess he doesn't get all the breaks

well... I remember the fans freaking out!  Berger said "would you guys buy that" and the fans responded "Yes".  I am sure they are testing the market.  Grant's fans are loyal and he has gotten so many new fans since Batman its nuts.

I suppose, I just don't think Invisibles was a big seller back in the day but I won't be surprised if they do it

Grant Morrison is the NEW ALAN MOORE!  I love MOORE, but because Moore doesn't play with DC anymore DC needed another genius. And they found him in Grant.  After the Invisibles, Grant did X-Men and grew now Marvel fans, when coming back to DC he has owned everything he has touched.  7 Soldiers, 52, Final Crisis, Batman.  All his older work is getting priority because new fans want it.  I enjoy Peter Milligan's work, but not Even Grant Morrison't Animal sold enough for a second print yet, so why would they print PMs run?... Maybe Shade... and only the first book has had more then one reprint that I know of.  I hate to read Enigma in loose issues. 
 
It is crazy how big Grant Morrison is getting, but the man deserves it. He work is so trippy I can not look at a red sun the same way again, and it has nothing to do with Superman. He is a rare talent and all his work should see print again.  I still need to get around to reading the Born to be wild anthology him and Neil Gaiman contributed.

@aztek the lost:  Each book is on at least its 3rd or 4th printing, that is not bad.  Then the Filth is on its 2nd I believe.  With Flex Mentallo in print, if they do bring it in print, that is the three companion pieces.  Maybe They'll wait for a while....
 
Grant's catalog at DC is huge, so DC can take their time with releasing his works.
