Before The Filth, before All-Star Superman and Doom Patrol, there was Zenith! The first chapter of Grant Morrison Grant Morrison and Steve Yeowell’s breakout superhero series, Zenith: Phase One, is being published simultaneously on both sides of the Atlantic in a gorgeous hardback edition with a brand new cover by Yeowell. Zenith was the world’s first “Superbrat” – a vain, self-obsessed, egotistical pop singer whose only interests are girls, partying, and where he is in the music charts. Yet as the world’s only superhero, he doesn’t realise that he is at the centre of a dark conspiracy that could wipe out the entire universe. Clever, snappy, visceral, and witty, Zenith is a satire on the pop music culture of the late 1980s, on politics, and on the superhero genre. This 112-page edition of the first Phase includes a cover gallery and original character designs by Mad Max and Zaucer of Zilk artist Brendan McCarthy.
