Grant Morrison’s Supergods is part history, part philosophy, part autobiography and an incredibly deep discussion of superheroes role in society as medium and message.
Personally, it reminded me of the Sekhmet Hypothesis which, sunspots
aside, holds that the culture oscillates between punk and hippie on an 11 year cycle.
1944 Beatniks – Hippie
1955 Rock n roll – Punk
1988 Acid House
In that case we’re just starting a hippie phase and I’m taking that into consideration as I outline my next book.
