This is the most common defence I hear when I bring up Morrison. To which I say, being referential doesn't make you a great storyteller, it just shows you've done your homework. As I've said before in another thread, I find it baffling how so many writers get eye rolls and groans when they try the same thing but when Godly Grant does it it's considered groundbreaking

I had an interest to check out The Invisibles but after reading a decent amount of his work, I just... nah. Hard pass.

Just a difference of opinion I guess.
