Info Session for Matt Amylon ’14’s Student Forum on Grant Morrison – Monday, 5:00 – 6:00 PM

Grant-Morrison-by-Frank-quitely

“Grant Morrison: Comic Book Writer/Rock Star/Wizard” is an earnest attempt to cure Wesleyan of stilted, sub-intro-level “the Graphic Novel” courses through a focused, informed perspective on a specific topic within the vast and daunting medium of comics. To wit, the works of Glaswegian comics auteur Grant Morrison, MBE.

Morrison (1960-) has been one of the most influential voices in the comics medium for twenty-five years, a member of the same 1980s “British invasion” that brought Alan Moore (WATCHMEN) and Neil Gaiman (SANDMAN) to the attention of American readers. Morrison quickly proved to be still more eclectic than those two innovators, earning his fame in 1988 with a bestselling graphic novel (ARKHAM ASYLUM: A SERIOUS HOUSE ON SERIOUS EARTH) about the Jungian unconscious, Aleister Crowley’s Thoth tarot deck, and Batman. Since then, he has time and time again demonstrated an ability to oscillate between personal works such as THE FILTH and high-profile superhero comics while bringing similar thematic concerns and stylistic innovations to each.

Esteemed broomball commissioners Ty Kelly ’14 and Gareth Novak-Miller ’14 send one of the most minimal event post blurbs this website has gotten in a while pertaining to broomball, an absurd hockey-like sport that involves people in sneakers playing hockey on the ice rink every Sunday:

Hear ye, hear ye!

Come one, come all to the first meeting of Broomball 2014. Why? Because who doesn’t like falling down on ice.

Date: Sunday, January 26
Time: 8:45 PM
Place: Freeman Ice Rink
