Creators | Frazer Irving talks about the challenges of being the artist for Grant Morrison's Annihilator: "There’s moments of ambiguity, and moments where you read a page description or some dialogue and you think 'What?!'

I was left with a sense — I was reading it in New York at the time — of nihilism and hedonism — this going to Hell in a handbasket in a fast car kind of thing." [Hero Complex]
