Nameless by Grant Morrison and Chris Burnham
It’s no secret that I am not a Grant Morrison fan. Some of his tales are just true hit, while others are total miss. This one, however, I found to be total disappointment. Cosmic Lovecraftian horror description is what hooked me onto it, but the story is filled with so much symbolism, obscure occult references and the pointless amount of violence that I felt Morrison intentionally crammed much of the stuff so that he can say the typical “look how grim and dark I can be”. And while there are some truly gruesome parts, I still prefer horror tales that go for mysticism and suspense. Also, I get more scared by passing kindergarten than this. And regardless being superhero book, Gothic is tale that I adore and chills me every time I read it.
And to tell the truth, if somebody asks me what is Nameless about, I couldn’t really say.
Burnham standardly great.
