The witty sarcasm that the writer infused in his writing style keeps one engaged even when the subject material is not that interesting.Morrision’s analysis of some smash hit books and how they came to be are very interesting.Morrision retells history as a story, something which he excels at, which helps keep the book fresh.
Things I liked about this bookSlide5
It is too long, mainly because of unnecessary paragraphs of digression and a few chapters, such as one reviewing all the Batman live action adaptations which does not contribute anything significant to the book except it’s length.Morrison, himself being a very significant figure in the history of comics, comes off as making himself look too innocent when it comes to critiquing his own work.
