DC Announces MULTIVERSITY Is Coming!

Each world in the Multiverse publishes comic books about the heroes on the OTHER worlds. Once the characters realize this, they then unite to respond to the villains!



Source: DC Blog

DC Entertainment has confirmed that Grant Morrison’s labor of love to superhero comics, MULTIVERSITY, will be hitting stores in late 2013. The series will not only define the Multiverse for DC COMICS-THE NEW 52, but will also provide a handful of new worlds, concepts, heroes and villains to enjoy.

 

Speaking to THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER, Morrison describes the mini--series:

 

 
MULTIVERSITY is an 8-issue series comprising 6 one-shots and a two-part conclusion with each issue featuring a 38-page lead story followed by an 8-page backup. Each issue takes place on a different parallel world from the main DC Earth and functions as a number one issue. Each world in the Multiverse publishes comic books about the heroes on the OTHER worlds. Once the characters realize this, they then unite to respond to the villains!
 
Each universe (which have been brewing in Morrison’s mind for years) will open up an endless series of worlds and realities for future writers and creators to use and hopefully expand upon.
 
Below is a preview of MULTIVERSITY art from PAX AMERICANA #1. Illustrated by the legendary Frank Quitely, PAX AMERICANA takes the original Charlton Comics characters and presents them in a way that’s "both new and familiar at the same time".

Can it be as successful as the Nu52 without the rape foundation?

Meaning it's the Charlton characters acting like the Watchmen characters which were based on the Charlton characters.

I kind of hope there's a Gorilla Earth, where Gorilla-Flash has to stop Man-Grodd.

I have all the faith in the world that this will be terrible. The "legacy earth" idea especially sounds like shit.

I love the DC Universe and it's Multiverse.

Grant Morrison on the other hand. :roll:

So the basic plot is that characters realize they're just characters somewhere else. I think Morrison has been smoking issues of his Animal Man #5.

Looking at the lemonade side of things, at least this is supposed to be Morrison's swan song (isn't it)?

They had to wait until after the reboot so that this will look good in comparison.

I'm game.

iF: This sounds to me to be very similar in structure to Seven Soldiers. You see to like this style of an opening and closing issue with a bunch of one-shots in the middle. What do you get to do in that format that you can’t do in just a straight mini-series?
GM: Well, I also like having lots of number ones. [Laughs] There’s a really upfront commercial reason for doing these things, but also I kind of like weird structures, you know? And with something like Seven Soldiers, where we had a team who don’t meet each other but whose paths cross, we were kind of creating this big tapestry of all those books. This one’s a bit more linear but it’s done in the form of… it’s almost like a baton race or a relay race where each of the worlds can read a comic book that’s published in their world but which tells the adventures of the previous world. The characters are actually reading the series along with the readers. So that was the kind of take on this one. The structure that I had was to build a framing story and then have each of the different worlds referring to what happened in the previous world and having to figure out their own way of defeating the bad guy. But like I say, I kind of like to do odd structures and that’s just how this one worked out. And it came about that way because of the original parallel worlds story where The Flash meets the Golden Age Flash and I loved the idea that Barry Allen knew about Jay Garrick because he read about him in a comic book. So that kind of set up the whole premise of these guys all have comics published and they can all read about each other in different parallel Earths. So I thought, how would you use that as a strategy if you’re fighting an enemy who is attacking multiple parallel worlds all at one? And that kind of formed my take on this.

This sounds way more interesting than most of the New 52 stuff so far.
