    The biggest adventure in DC’s history is here!

    Join visionary writer Grant Morrison, today’s most talented artists, and a cast of unforgettable characters from 52 alternative Earths of the known DC Multiverse! Prepare to meet the Vampire 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 Super Hero of Earth-Prime: YOU!

    Comprising six complete adventures – each set in a different parallel universe – plus a two-part framing story and a comprehensive guidebook to the many worlds of the Multiverse, THE MULTIVERSITY is more than just a multipart comic-book series. It’s a cosmos spanning, soul-shaking experience that puts YOU on the frontline in the Battle for All Creation against the demonic destroyers known as the Gentry!

    In issue #1, pencilled by superstar artist Ivan Reis (AQUAMAN, JUSTICE LEAGUE), President Superman of Earth-23 uncovers a threat to all Reality so apocalyptic it will take a team of incredible heroes from across the Multiverse to face it – including Captain Carrot, like you’ve never seen him before!

    But even with a multitude of alternate worlds to choose from, where every variation is possible, can anyone hope to prevail against the onslaught of ultimate evil and undying hatred – in the unstoppable form of a one-time cosmic defender with unimaginable powers?! Join us, if you dare, for the beginning of THE MULTIVERSITY!


    • Mary Marvel, Abin Sur, The Wizard, Fiddler, and the Thinker only appear on covers
    • The fifth cover is a homage of the cover of Action Comics #1.

    When I found out that Multiversity was actually coming out I was over the moon. When the days dwindled down and it was only a week away it was the only thing I was talking about. Today when it came out it was the only thing I could think about. So to put it lightly you could say I was excited.

So as of now I have ...

He later applied that creativity to the sometimes convoluted but almost always satisfied arcs that he brought to characters like Batman. Here, I feel he returns to his roots, and although the DC Universe is still his sandbox of choice, the chaos here transcends the limitations of any previously established continuities.
