This chapter discusses the ground level roots of Grant Morrison in writing comics. Ground level comics are those comics that operated within mainstream genres, but allowed experimental layouts, sexual content, and violence. Morrison’s first comics were published in Near Myths, a Scottish anthology that ran for only five issues. Though Near Myths failed to achieve commercial success, it launched Morrison’s career and marked his first efforts in combining tropes of popular fiction with the underground comic book writing methodologies.
