DC Comics has announced Grant Morrison will return to the Vertigo imprint this Spring for a new creator-owned series called "The Filth." This is Morrison's first creator-owned book at DC since his work on "The Invisibles." Morrison will be joined by artists Chris Weston ("Ministry of Space," "Enemy Ace: War in Heaven") and Gary Erskine ("War Story: Johann's Tiger").

DC describes "The Filth" as "a twisted super-thriller in which Morrison takes the reader on

a psychedelic roller coaster ride through a maelstrom of extra-dimensional

espionage, disease pathology, sex and violence, prosthetically-equipped

dolphins, indolent nano-technology, co-opted reality and the notion of

identity itself. Loaded with febrile imagery and Byzantine plot twists, 'The Filth 'is a mind-wrenching journey where nothing is exactly what it seems."

"Grant is one of the most imaginative and exciting storytellers in comics,"

says Karen Berger, Vertigo Executive Editor in the release. "With 'The Filth,' he's doing

what he does best - taking us on a wild trip through a world that has to be

experienced to be believed, and Chris's art is at its most intricate,

innovative and dazzling."

"It's bigger, wilder, uglier and more heart-rending than the best summer

blockbuster movie," Morrison said in the release. "It's guaranteed to blind the mind's eye

and infect the soul forever."

"The Filth" will hit stores in Spring, 2002.
