Media Release — Sequart Organization’s The Anatomy of Zur-en-Arrh: Understanding Grant Morrison’s Batman is now available for order through Diamond’s Previews catalog. It’s listed in the book section, page 430. (You can also see the online listing HERE.) When ordering, please use item code SEP141874.
Grant Morrison has made a career of redefining heroes, but his work with Batman has been the most comprehensive. From Arkham Asylum and JLA to his recent seven-year run on the Batman titles, Morrison has redefined and reworked the Caped Crusader from the ground up. He’s also introduced new characters (such as Damian Wayne) and new concepts (such as Batman, Inc.).
The Anatomy of Zur-en-Arrh analyzes Grant Morrison’s Batman, including how it understands and reinterprets Batman’s long history. The book also features an interview with Grant Morrison.
This is Sequart’s fourth book on Grant Morrison, following Timothy Callahan’s Grant Morrison: The Early Years, Patrick Meaney’s Our Sentence is Up: Seeing Grant Morrison’s The Invisibles, and Tom Shapira’s Curing the Postmodern Blues: Reading Grant Morrison and Chris Weston’s The Filth in the 21st Century. Sequart has also produced the documentary film, Grant Morrison: Talking with Gods, directed by Patrick Meaney.
Written by Cody Walker, The Anatomy of Zur-en-Arrh runs 272 pages and retails for $16.99. Please consider pre-ordering the book from your local comics store — don’t assume they will order copies otherwise! Even if you don’t pre-order a copy, we’d appreciate you letting your local comics store know of your interest in the book (and in Sequart), because it’s so important to spread the word. Thank you!
