Grant Morrison's Birthday- Eden's End, Liam Sharp & James Gunn DCU?

It's Grant Morrison's birthday - which includes a present to us all courtesy of Liam Sharp, but might James Gunn have something to add to the mix with a DCU announcement?

Today is the birthday of Grant Morrison. Given James Gunn's reading matter of late, is he going to give Grant some kind of birthday present if that DCU film and TV slate is announced as many expect today? Batman & Robin? All-Star Superman? Animal Man? Arkham Asylum? Sebastian O? We3? Who knows what announcement will be timed for today that may exploit the previous work for DC by the Morrison one on the occasion of their sixty-third birthday.

Grant Morrison's Birthday- Eden's End, Liam Sharp & James Gunn DCU?But Grant Morrison may have a present for all of us as well – at least those who subscribe to their Xanaduum Substack. For that newsletter's own one-year anniversary, Grant Morrison has announced "We've been busy in the lab making a new breed of comics with our virtuoso artistic collaborator on The Green Lantern, the omni-talented Liam Sharp! Today's the day the teddy bears celebrate the 1st birthday of Xanaduum!" – a new collaboration with Liam Sharp, who they worked with recently on The Green Lantern run starring Hal Jordan, called Eden's End, asking "where did we go wrong?" and promised for 2023. Grant Morrison promises "more teaser art, plus behind the scenes and future plans later this week" from Eden's End as well as a Manifesto for their Xanaduum Presents publishing line on Substack.
