    Zenith is one of the Holy Grail books for me It has only appeared in collected form in England Some imported copies have appeared but I always seem to miss them at conventions I finally managed to track them down and they were definitely worth the search Zenith Book 1 is another great Morrison read The story begins with the showdown between the British superhero Maximan and the Nazi superhero Masterman at the end of World War II Maximan is overly confident and Masterman easily beats Zenith is one of the Holy Grail books for me It has only appeared in collected form in England Some imported copies have appeared but I always seem to miss them at conventions I finally managed to track them down and they were definitely worth the search Zenith Book 1 is another great Morrison read The story begins with the showdown between the British superhero Maximan and the Nazi superhero Masterman at the end of World War II Maximan is overly confident and Masterman easily beats him At this time, the Americans drop the atomic bomb on the duo bringing an end to the conflict.Back in England, their scientists use the procedure to create a super team called Cloud 9 Cloud 9 become the darlings of the 60s Two of them end up together and become parents to the first of the next generation of heros Zenith Unfortunately for them, Zenith is only interested in partying and his music career He does enough heroic acts to help further his career.Unknown to the winners of WWII, a secret cult survived the war They are followers of The Many Angled Ones who were the real power behind Masterman As their plot unfolds, Zenith is forced into teaming up with the remaining members of Cloud 9 to take on the new Masterman and his masters.This is a well thought out, tightly plotted, mystery filled story that is another example of why Morrison is one of my favorite comic book writers.Highly recommended

    The son of two famous 60 s super heroes grows up to be a celeberty with super powers,interested in selling action figures and being famous than fighting crime His life changes when the survivors of his folks old team are targeted by an evil, demonically possessed super nazi.Yeah, you read that last part right.While not a great comic, this early Grant Morrison work hits a nice balance between super heroes in the real world and the kind of big, mad ideas that a good comic book needs.

    This is the first ever superhero comic I read And sort of set the pattern for what I now like in Superhero comics.It s smart, bold, dynamic, adult.The pacing is absolutely breakneck.I mean, it s maybe not brilliant by the standards of today But back then, when it was published, in what, 86, 87 I think it was probably a tremendously important and influential piece.It s also interesting how a lot of the core themes are ideas that Grant has continued to use throughout the years.

    Interesting start, if a little unsatisfying because it didn t introduce much I liked the short chapters, which probably goes against complaining that there wasn t enough plot developed Absolutley loved the art, completely jumped off the page.
