Seven long years ago DC Comics took Ted Kord from us, and the repercussions weighed heavy on many characters and story-lines throughout the DCU for years to come. I think a death like this would have been permanent if not for the recent reboot. But the idea behind Grant Morrison’s Multiversity is not retelling original stories, it’s taking the idea of all the DC multiverses and making them tangible and understandable to new readers alike. One of the main goals of The New 52 was to take all of the characters in the very complicated DCU and bring them into a new age of storytelling. Morrison’s idea for Multiversity wasn’t originally intended for The New 52 so he has had to make some changes but as an entry from the DC Comics blog explains below will help to make the DCnU a richer storytelling medium:
“DC Entertainment is proud to confirm that Grant Morrison’s love letter to superhero comics, ‘MULTIVERSITY’, will be hitting stores in late 2013.’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! Additionally, 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, expand upon and enjoy.”
Head on over to ComicBookResources to read their exclusive interview with Grant Morrison. Multiversity is headed our way sometime in 2013.
Stay tooned 😛
