DC Comics announced recently that the wait is over for Grant Morrison's upcoming book MULTIVERSITY. It will be hitting comic book shelves in August. The multi-verse is something DC fans have been clamoring for, especially after getting a sneak peek at one Earth during Morrison's run on ACTION COMICS. It will define DC's New 52 Multiverse and give fans new heroes and villains.

MULTIVERSITY #1: HOUSE OF HEROES will be drawn by Ivan Reis and Joe Prado. It will be the first chapter of the limited series this August. Check out the rest of the info on DC's page.

I would love it if DC would make an Earth S series

It would also be smart of them to make an Earth 16 series, then they could reel in all the Young Justice fans who want to know what happened after season 2.

Am I the only one that seems...hesitant that Morrison is going to delve into the multiverse?

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!’”

That’s Morrison for you. Can’t wait!..

the super-sons of Superman and Batman

… I think I have a dirty mind.

@ultimatesmfan: I believe so. At least for DC Comics. There's no mention of Morrison being contracted to do anymore work for DC after Wonder Woman: Earth One.

That's not a good news.

It's only my best guesswork mate, Morrison could well have something else at DC that we don't know about yet.

When I saw this news I became so happy, been waiting for this particular book very much for the past couple of years now....Finally it's here!!! I'm insanely eager to read what Grant Morrison describes as his magnum opus! And his take and final description of the DC Multiverse, oh man I'm so excited!!

@lvenger: Penultimate? Wonder Woman being his last one correct?

@dud317: I seriously thought I was the only one who had a problem with that. I have had to re read each piece of work he's ever done, it just doesn't click the first time. And reading his run on action comics blew my mind, he'd just jump scenes, similar to r.i.p batman

Mutliverse book? THAT'S AWESOME!!!!!!

Maybe this means we'll finally get an ULTIMATE DC universe as an ongoing series?!? Now THAT would be awesome.

I can see it now. They can have Superman in this awesome new costume

No Caption Provided

Yeah Ultimate Superman would have this really great new vibe to him. He focuses on helping and rescuing people first and only intervenes if there is a big bad supervillain running amok. Sure he handles muggings if he's around, but it's the big stuff he handles because he's trying not to look like a harsh alien invader.

And Billy Batson could be this a super edgy kid, who likes to help people and tries his hardest to be nice to people like his hero Superman. Because of this he is chosen to gain the powers of an ancient wizard named Shazam and becomes Captain Thunder, a hero so cheerful and full of childlike wonder that he's sure to connect with modern readers because who doesn't like a kid who's written as a nice kid and not a little snot?

No Caption Provided

Oh and to really draw in the hip young cool kids, they could have this group called The Titans who used to be sidekicks but grew up and started their OWN superhero team!

No Caption Provided

Yeah that would be awesome.

Good Times (made me giggle), great original ideas that I think would sell like hot cakes... They should also add in a guy who designs his look after some kind of flying rodent and fights crime after his parents are killed.... We should keep these ideas to ourselves so no one steals them (hahaha)

I can't wait till the 8th or so time I've read it so I can understand it all.

Not a hater, I'm a fan. But I find myself going back to his work more compared to other writers.

I was just thinking of Multiversity a few days ago... and almost gave up interest when I found no news. I'd read pretty much anything with Grant Morrison involved, and most of my favourite comic book stories are set in alternate universes - this looks to be the ultimate combination of both.

SPOILER ALERT!

“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

It sounds like it's going to be an epic story! I'm just wondering how all this will fit into a limited series only and still make sense? I guess, Morrison knows how. Lets hope all these years of waiting and more waiting will finally be worth it.

Ah at last, it'll be good to see what Morrison's penultimate DC story will be like. His zany, high concept and utterly unique writing with metaphysical themes to boot is perfect for expanding the DC Multiverse in this way.

The blurb that Morrison wrote sounds insane.

I love it. Looking forward to this.

I really don't know anything about this except that I LOVED Grant Morrison's run on Action Comics. So if this is anything like that I will love it!

You're gonna love it then.

@samuel_simmons: No, no, no, stop using the word "literally" wrongly. You have no idea how much that annoys me.

Seriously, it's like half the internet has no idea what that word means.

I don't know why people are so down on Morrison. I've enjoyed the stories that he writes. They're deep,rich, and offers different takes on the characters he writes. He's usually not cookie cutter and his storylines can be complex. I glad to see him back

Haters man, they're all just haters.

See this looks awesome and sounds super interesting but its Morrison. Literally the worst writer there is. If I can stomach it I'll read or maybe wait for the trade, either I'm skeptical.

Stop it. Seriously. Stop it, stop it, stop it. Just stop it.

Some plots with both DC and Marvel are a mess, but I have to say this is awesome. Finally more news on the other 52 Earths.

The Vampire Justice League caught my interest lol.

I'm still waiting for a Superman Prime One Million New 52 or some uber powerful Superman in the future.
