Grant Morrison: "There are bad things about ourselves that we need to acknowledge and overcome if the human project is to prosper in the coming century"

Final Crisis 3 just dropped, and its amazining.;

Here's Grant Morrison talking about part 2.

From Newsarama:

I’d imagine the DCU is starting to feel a little more like our own dear ‘Earth Prime’ around now: life on the streets and online maybe feels a bit angrier, more irritable. There’s a horrible, widespread public determination to expose, emphasise and fixate on the flaws in people’s personalities, in how they look, in what they say, or sing or think or do for a living and so on. Ordinary kids are cynical and self-harming, while whole nations are still at one another’s throats when by, all rights, they should have moved on to a global commonwealth space faring society. Cities are under siege from demented weather and frightened bureaucrats. There’s an increased paranoia and hostility, driven by media, an unmistakable, growing sense that something wrong has begun to pervade the zeitgeist. There are bad things about ourselves that we need to acknowledge and overcome if the human project is to prosper in the coming century and Final Crisis is an ambitious attempt to frame some of that serious stuff in the context of a big, daft adventure story.

Meanwhile, the relaunched GrantMorrison.com has some preview pages from the upcoming Seaguy 2: The Slaves Of Mickey Eye. The first one made me cry.
