Afternoon Bites: Grant Morrison, Rick Moody, Literary Festivals, and more

“[Superman] was created in the Depression to be a champion to the oppressed. We’re in a different kind of depression now and I think to put Superman back in that place — to make him very much a champion of the oppressed, the underdog and an outlaw rather than a patriot figure or someone who works with the police — that’s what we want to do. To bring him back to his roots.” Vulture chats with Grant Morrison, whose book Supergods came out earlier this week.
