Comics collected by Grant Morrison, often sent to him by publishers. The comics in this collection are not catalogued individually, but the number of comics in each box is given, as is the date range and some of the comics within the box. For the most part it is DC comics with a few Vertigo, Image, and WildStorm comics thrown in as well. Most are not by Grant Morrison himself, but some do have his name on them as a contributor or he has written a blurb on the comic.
