Advert Break – Comica ‘10 Continues with UK Exclusive Screening of Grant Morrison Documentary Movie

Talking With Gods is a brand-new documentary directed by Patrick Meaney on the acclaimed visionary comics scribe and shaman Grant Morrison. The movie is being billed as “the first documentary on one of the most enigmatic, iconic, ground-breaking, critically-acclaimed, bestselling, influential, mysterious comic book writers of all time.”

Previewed at last July’s San Diego Comic Con, it’s been getting some very positive reviews. David Azumeri on Comics Alliance praised it for giving “an honest look not only at how he’s influenced an entire generation of creators, but also connects the themes and concepts of Morrison’s work to his childhood and everyday life.” Rich Johnston at Bleeding Cool, who also appears in the film, hails it as “a thoroughly engaging picture of Grant Morrison built up from a rich cloth of threads.” It also features contributions from Warren Ellis (subject of another doc to come), Frank Quitely, Frazer Irving, Chris Weston, Cameron Stewart, Geoff Johns, Mark Waid, Karen Berger, Dez Skinn, JG Jones, Matt Fraction, Dan DiDio, Jill Thompson, and many more. You can read an online interview with Meaney at Daily Blam.

As a special Comica ‘10 event in association with the ICA, we’re presenting an exclusive first UK big-screen showing of Talking With Gods next Sunday December 12, 2010, on The Mall in London in the ICA’s Cinema 1 from 4pm.
