Man Believes He's Been Transported to Alternate Universe after Seeing Multiversity #1 On Shelves

Jerry Brooks, a 31 year old comics fan living in Springfield, OH, knew something was wrong when he walked into his local comic book store and saw a copy of DC's new The Multiversity #1 sitting on the shelf of new comic releases.  Brooks cautiously approached the comic book and picked it up in his hands, first believing it to be a hallucination or an elaborate prank.  However, upon seeing the interior art and the surprisingly coherent Grant Morrision dialogue, Brooks came to one conclusion: he had somehow been spontaneously transported to an alternate dimension.

"It's the only plausible explanation," Brooks told the Outhouse.  "I've been transported to an alternate universe in which The Multiversity has actually been published."

Morrison and DC have been talking about The Multiversity for five years, ever since DC published Morrison's Final Crisis mini-series.  " I don't anticipate any of this coming out until 2010," Morrison said of the miniseries back in 2009.  But while Morrison has mentioned the comic in every interview he's done over the last five years, no one believed he was actually serious about getting the series published until today. 

Many, including Brooks, had dismissed Multiversity as an urban legend of sorts, similar to Mothman or Libertarians that can be reasoned with. "You have to understand," Brooks said. "In my world, this comic doesn't exist.  It's a fairy tale.  A bogey man meant to convince comics fans that DC can still put out top-notch superhero comics with complex plots and a relatively low percentage of severed limbs." 

Brooks is unclear exactly when he was transported into our alternate universe, nor can he explain why this universe is practically identical to the one in which he previously lived.  "Yeah, there's only a couple of other minor differences between my world and this one," Brooks said.  "My cat is a bit nicer and I think the coffee's a little less bitter."  As for how he got transported to this Earth, Brooks just rolled his eyes.  "It's probably just Grant Morrison doing some of his multiversal quantum magic, again, just like when he used magic to convince DC to not change Batman Incorporated's plot at all despite the company rebooting its line like 3 months beforehand."

Multiversity #1 is now for sale at comic stores...OR IS IT?!
