This chapter examines Grant Morrison’s comic book projects for Vertigo Comics during and after his stint in Marvel Comics. It explains that during his stay in Marvel Comics, his projects for Vertigo abandoned the standard formula of superhero comics. It became his channel for expressing his frustration on corporate control and conservative ideology. The chapter adds that Morrison experimented with different approaches to writing a comic book narrative such as in the Justice League of America parody, The Filth. Morrison’s Seaguy parodied the narrative stasis of superhero genres with the episodic plotting that leads the story nowhere.
