The Wait Is Nearly Over: DC Schedules Morrison’s MULTIVERSITY For This Year
DC has scheduled a release date for Grant Morrison‘s long-awaited Multiversity series yet again, and this time they promise it’s really happening. You may be cautiously optimistic about this news, and it’s understandable. Multiversity was originally announced way, way back in 2010 as a limited series that would explore multiple DC realities with a plethora of top-tier artists. CBR has the news that the series will finally see its release in August of this year.
Each issue of Multiversity will clock in at seven issues featuring 40 pages with art by Chris Sprouse, Karl Story, Ben Oliver, Frank Quietly, Cameron Stewart, and more. The Multiversity #1 will be illustrated by Ivan Reis and Joe Prado with Nei Ruffino providing colors. Grant Morrison teased the series fans have probably filed in there “not happening” files:
“‘The Multiversity’ has been a labor of love almost eight years in the making, and brings together an unstoppable supergroup of artists — Reis, Sprouse, Oliver, Quitely, Stewart and more — with a cast of unforgettable characters from the 52 alternative Earths of the known DC Multiverse!
“Prepare to meet the Vampire Justice League of Earth-43, the Justice Riders of Earth-18, Superdemon, Doc Fate, the super-sons of Superman and Batman, the rampaging Retaliators of Earth-8, the Atomic Knights of Justice, Dino-Cop, Sister Miracle, Lady Quark, the legion of Sivanas, the Nazi New Reichsmen of Earth-10 and the LATEST, greatest superhero of Earth-Prime — YOU!
Comprising seven complete adventures — each set in a different parallel universe — a two part framing story, and comprehensive guidebook to the many worlds of the Multiverse, ‘The Multiversity’ is more than just a multi-part comic book series, it’s a cosmos-spanning, soul-shaking experience that puts YOU on the front line in the Battle For All Creation against the demonic destroyers known as the Gentry!
But beware! Power has a cost, and at the heart of this epic tale waits the cursed and malignant comic book called ‘Ultra Comics’…
How safe is YOUR head?
Join us, if you dare, for ‘The Multiversity!’” — Grant Morrison
