Free Comic Book Day Shows How Grant Morrison Writes A Script – Avatarex

The Avatarex Free Comic Book Day giveaway this Saturday shows off a preview of Grant Morrison's new comic series for the publisher.

But also we get to see something rarely glimpsed. A few pages of Grant Morrison's script for the series.
