Whether or not his stories are good is a topic of much debate. Some people love them, some people believe he's just some wacky guy who can't write a story without severe WriterOnBoard and whose constant forays into ThisIsYourPremiseOnDrugs end up dominating his books to the detriment of plot and character. He did once state in the letters page of ''Comicbook/TheInvisibles'' that his protagonist, King Mob, a TuxedoAndMartini ObiWan AuthorAvatar only got laid all the time because the comic book was a magic spell Morrison was casting, and so [[SympatheticMagic making his main character get laid would get him laid]]. And if you think he's joking, [[CloudCuckoolander you haven't read ''Supergods'']]

** His attempt to turn ''ComicBook/{{Magneto}}'', Marvel's poster child for the WellIntentionedExtremist trope, into a CardCarryingVillain, though? Not well-received. The writers that came after him [[ArmedWithCanon couldn't retcon the whole thing away fast enough.]]

* WritingForTheTrade: Morrison has stated that his run on Batman is to be divided up into "separate books" that all go together. This makes some of the more unusual issues make more sense. Final Crisis also becomes much more comprehensible when reading it as a trade rather than individual issues being released each month (which has contributed much of the FanDumb against Final Crisis itself).

* AuthorAppeal: Morrison loves the sillier Silver Age characters. He fought and lost to have Egg Fu have his prehensile mustache in ''ComicBook/FiftyTwo'', for instance.
