It's queen Elizabeth II's official birthday today and she celebrated by making Grant Morrison, writer of St Swithins Day
, in which the protagonist sets out to kill Maggie Thatcher, as well as The New Adventures of Hitler
, depicting Hitlers adventures in Liverpool being serenaded by Morrisey, a member of the Order of the British Empire
An MBE is the lowest rank in the Order of the British Empire
, established in 1917, the youngest of the British Empire's chivalry orders. It's handed out to people who in one field or another have provided a service to the United Kingdom; in Grant Morrison's case it's for services to film and literature.
The official UK government website
has the full honours list
Grant Morrison is probably best known for his work on Zenith
, Animal Man
, Doom Patrol
or The Invisibles
, all not quite establishment friendly.
