Curing the Postmodern Blues by Tom Shapira is a great look at the themes of The Filth without being a heavy handed, page-by-page breakdown. While you can find books on other Morrison titles that annotate each panel, giving great insight, Shapira gives you the tools to understand what Morrison means overall, and then lets you loose to discover the individual components of that greater message on your own.
After reading the Filth for the first time, then sitting down with this book, I am excited to immediately read the Filth again and see if I can't crack some of the codes I couldn't make it through the first time.
And the interviews with all three main creators on THE FILTH are priceless. Not to mention the 30+ images that Weston donated to the book. One of the images is actually an uncensored version that DC later touched up. I assume it's never been seen before being published in this book.
All around, it's a must have for Morrison fans.
