When talking about Annihilator, writer of the graphic novel Grant Morrison (Fantastic Four) says,
“‘Annihilator’ is a personal favorite of mine – written to showcase the unique, incredible artwork of Frazer Irving and as a love letter to the larger-than-life characters and witchy, diabolical undercurrents of Los Angeles and Hollywood, my beloved second home! I hope this softcover collection attracts a whole new audience to our tale of black holes, love betrayed, guerrilla screenwriting, and dodgy deals with the devil!”
The 2014 comic is about Ray Spass, a washed-up screenwriter in Los Angeles. His life is falling apart in all aspects of relationships, and spending all his time partying and being self-destructive. He is only one script away from becoming a nameless no one. Ray’s imagination runs wild as he teams up with a fictional character named Max Nomax that he wrote. “Can they stop the world from imploding without blowing his own mind in the process?”
