OH SNAP!  One of the interviews I had HOPED would show up on Comic Vine! 
 
Okay, so the beginning pages of Batman & Robin #13 weren't just some crazy thing.  Dick Grayson is ACTUALLY GETTING SHOT IN THE HEAD! 
 
Damn, this is one smart Scotsman! 
 
I will say, though, that I don't know what I think exactly about Yanick Paquette on Batman, Inc.  So far, the Morrison stories for Batman have lent themselves to far more interesting forms of artwork.  It's why guys like Quietly and Daniel and Tan have worked so well.  Paquette's work has always been a bit clean in comparison.  Hopefully, it works out well. 
 
I don't know.  Maybe I just wasn't really into Paquette's art on Return of Bruce Wayne #3.

Looking at and listening to Morrison, I expected him to say "jings' like Wee Hughie from the Boys.

This is my favorite interview of the Con... probably cause the man writes my favorite comic book... Joe the Barbarian!

Nice interview.  More interested in Batman Inc. than Grayson getting shot.

#13 Posted by FadeToBlackBolt (23334 posts) - - Show Bio

I am so jealous of Babs, getting to meet, in my opinion, the greatest author of the modern age!
 
Batman Inc. looks interesting, probably some kind of Batman family only Justice league. 
 
All around, great time to be a fan of the Dark Knight!

#14 Posted by Pizawle (1074 posts) - - Show Bio

Morrison is so cool. 
 
Great interview, Babs!

#15 Posted by TheMess1428 (2176 posts) - - Show Bio

All I know is that Dick Grayson better not die or become a cripple. 
 
And did he say there is going to be a comic called BATMAN INCORPORATED?

#16 Edited by abedrak (15 posts) - - Show Bio

When I started reading comics the first one I read was Batman #655 and thanks to Morrison I've been more and more into comics. He is one hell of a writer, he combines hidden elements in his stories, mithology and some magical references. 
  
I love what he's been doing with Dick on his run. I hope Dick would continue to be Batman (well, first of all be alive).

Well after seeing that I hate Morrison a bit less.  He seems like a decent enough guy.  He gave some hints to how this ends and if it is going to end the way I think it will, I may take back every bad thing I ever said about this running series.

#18 Posted by abedrak (15 posts) - - Show Bio
@TheMess1428: Is his new Batman book. Batman & Robin will be written by Peter Tomasi.
#19 Posted by iLLituracy (13537 posts) - - Show Bio

Ahahaha. The way he said Dick is going to get shot in the head.

#20 Posted by RedHurricane24 (235 posts) - - Show Bio

Regarding Morrison saying that Dick will actually get shot, I dunno how to take that bit of knowledge. I just hope he doesn't die.

#21 Posted by Nick-SV(ril) (564 posts) - - Show Bio

Cool interview. Curious to see whats gonna happen with Dick next

#22 Posted by Joey Ravn (385 posts) - - Show Bio

I absolutely adore Grant Morrison. He's, by far, the author that has made the deepest impact in my life. I hope he's at Comic Con in a few years, when I'll be able to go there. Meeting him in person, woah... That'd be AWESOME.

#23 Posted by johnny_spam (2031 posts) - - Show Bio

I am so happy he is staying on the Batman books. 

#24 Posted by CrimsonInuTears (464 posts) - - Show Bio

Oh man, I am so happy right now~ Grant makes me comic runs worth it~ Good to hear that Damian's not just gonna get the boot when Brucy's back, but the whole Dick thing really REALLY worries me... Cause we've seen what a shot to the head can do to a guy... Oh man... Now I can't wait for September!
#25 Posted by imaginaryman (198 posts) - - Show Bio

Nice interview Babs! ^_~ 
I love Grant Morrison, I think out of all the other writers of batman he is the only one who really explores Bruce's family (it started because of his family) and I like that a lot! its drama, but really good drama.

#26 Posted by kungnima (180 posts) - - Show Bio

wonder what ideas he has hidden.. under the scotsmans kilt?!

#30 Posted by B'Town (2336 posts) - - Show Bio

This was a terrific interview, nice job Babs.   
 
I am really enjoying Grant's Batman and Robin.  The story has been so twisted at times I have to set the book down and take a breath.  I renewed my subscription and I'm glad for it.

Morrison is a mad genius.

#35 Posted by IronSpidy-Rooney (356 posts) - - Show Bio

#39 Posted by NeoEtruscan (5 posts) - - Show Bio

Wow, Can't wait for Batman Inc.

#40 Posted by seagalli (4 posts) - - Show Bio

Grant is so cool he makes mistakes just to know what it feels like. 
But seriously, great questions Babs. I really thought he was going to spill the beans there for a second.

#41 Edited by FLStyle (368 posts) - - Show Bio

I believe we just heard a 3rd pronunciation for Ra's
 
There's "Raz" (majority), "Raysh" (Tony) and Grant's "Rash." Good ol' Scottish accent.
Was looking forward to a potential interview with this guy, good luck to him on future Batman stories.

#42 Posted by Lucidforest (6 posts) - - Show Bio
@FLStyle:  
 
Just for the record, I'm Scottish, from the very same city as Grant and that's the first I've heard it pronounced as 'rash'! Mister Morrison is just a bit quirky is all!

I'd rather be referred to as a Comic Vineyard.

#44 Posted by Son_of_Magnus (15258 posts) - - Show Bio

#47 Posted by Coxon9 (9 posts) - - Show Bio

grant morrison looks like how i imagine professor x to look like in the real world

#48 Posted by joshmightbe (24434 posts) - - Show Bio

i don't know if i like dick getting shot in the head

#49 Posted by Booly (11 posts) - - Show Bio

I would hope the Dick Grayson shot in the head line was a joke or him just messing with her.  
 
I started getting Batman again BECAUSE Dick Grayson took over the cowl. Him dead or at the very least in a vegetable state will ensure that Batman is no longer in my pull
