Chatting With The Youthful Grant Morrison Super-Fan From SDCC

By Joe Glass You may remember from SDCC my report on the Grant Morrison Multiversity panel, where I noted (as did everyone else there, Morrison included I’m sure) an incredibly excitable young fan of the popular writer. I may not have made it clear in the previous report, but a big part of why I […]

SDCC ’15: Grant Morrison – Multiversity and Beyond!

By Joe Glass The hall is filling up for Grant Morrison to unspool his mind and blow all of ours, and whilst we waited for the panel to begin, it was easy to tell that people all over the room were checking out the just released Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer. John Cunningham […]

Now It’s Time For DC Comics To Pay Scott Shaw For Captain Carrot…

Discussing the appearances of Captain Carrot and the Zoo Crew in recent DC Comics titles, including yesterday’s Justice League United preview, co-creator of the character Scott Shaw was asked on Facebook, Andrew Rubio: Scott, have you or Roy received any compensation for the Captain’s recent appearances (Multiversity and Convergence tie-ins)? Scott Shaw: Not a cent. […]

All The Worlds To Survive DC’s Convergence?

It’s world against world in DC’s Convergence. Death and destruction all around, world pitted against worlds until only one survives. Or something. Sounds a little incursion-y. Convergence has been promoted as a way for DC fans to say goodbye to certain realities. One last lap of an old favourite, A nostalgic love letter to what […]

Bitch Planet Matches Multiversity, Convergence And Justice League For Meta Moment

Today sees the final issue of Multiversity, the latest issue of Justice League and the fourth issue of Convergence. The former shows crashing realities as Grant Morrison brings all the plots from the one shots together into one final push.

Multiversity #2 Ch-Ch-Ch-Changes

This was the solicited cover for Multiversity #2… with Aquawoman of Earth-11, Damian Batman of Earth-16, Red Racer of Earth-36,  and Wundajin the Thunderer of Earth-7. But it seems that as a result of Multiversity: Ultra Comics, reality has been punched and the cover has changed… Now it features Aquawoman of Earth-11, Blitz of Flashpoint, Atomic […]

Multiversity: Ultra Comics Vs. Grover From Sesame Street

Today sees the much-anticipated release of Multiversity: Ultra Comics #1. With a very self-aware lead character, whose secret identity is all of us reading the comic book. And reacting to the reviews of the comic book even before they are written. And who even gives you spoilers in the opening pages. And encourages you to […]

Tomorrow’s Multiversity Comic Stars You In The Lead

Tomorrow’s Multivsity: Ultra Comics is the culmination of something that Grant Morrison has been doing since Animal Man (after being influenced by Bryan Talbot who had done similar in Brainstorms). It begins with Ultra returning… …then appealing to the reader not only to not skip to the end but to not even turn the page… […]

Comics That Are (Hopefully) Worth Waiting For – Multiversity To Hawkeye

An occasional look at lateness, comics that are on the schedule to be published but maybe a little later than we might have thought… and when we might expect them. The Wonder Woman Annual #1 by Meredith and David Finch and more, intended to come out in March will now be resolicited to come out […]

The Infinity That Wasn’t Incorporated: The Proposed Batgirling Of Infinity Inc.

By Patrick Gerard “If you can’t kill it, join it. When you get older, you’re gonna see the warning signs. Mark Zuckerberg is Fidel Castro in flip-flops.” The line comes from a season five episode of Dan Harmon‘s cult TV (now web) series Community. It was artfully delivered by Breaking Bad‘s Jonathan Banks as he […]

Prints Charming: Multiversity To Black Vortex…

Consider this an irregular feature looking at comic books that have gone to second prints or more. Now, it is worth remembering that some publishers plan second prints automatically, whether they are needed or not and will often just run extra first print copies in the initial run, set them aside and put a second […]

So What Does John Byrne Think Of Multiversity?

The Multiversity Guidebook collated a bunch of different parallel universes – 52 in all – and described almost every one, including… Which was rather reminiscent of these titles. Naturally, this was brought up on the Byrne Robotics Message Board.How did it go down, do you think? Conversation locked by John… Remember, The Multiversity also includes a world […]
