The Filth

 FILT   (Vertigo, 2002-2003)

ô and ©2002 Grant Morrison and Chris weston

In this 13-issue tribute to the bizarre, writer Grant Morrison claims he gets to do ďÖeverything I canít do in a mainstream comic like X-Men.Ē That leaves a lot of room for interpretation.

It begins with Greg Feely, an aging, lonely, incredibly ordinary bachelor who really only exists as a cover personality for the Hand, a futuristic paramilitary organization operating right under our noses, yet somehow outside of our awareness. Then thereís the prosthetically-equipped dolphins, complete with scuba gear, and the chain-smoking chimp that doubles as the Kremlinís top assassin. Itís about flying garbage trucks with razor-sharp teeth, pornography, masturbation, nosy neighbors, and a beautiful woman whose every thought, word, and action is cybernetically controlled by someone else. But what is The Filth really about? Itís about all the weirdness, real and imagined, that goes on in the world everyday.

Itís about us.
