I honestly had no interest in this story until I read the descriptions of each world. Now that those have been revealed, makes me want to read this. Shame the wait will be so long (but seeing when this thread started, not as long as others). But I think it will be worth it.

Plus that Quietly sample page, hot damn that look great.

I wasn't interested in Multiversity, but the main DC universe sucks so much now that an escape to other realities sounds fun. I always planned to pick up Wonder Woman: Earth One. First of the Earth One comics I'm actually interested in.

I enjoyed Superman: Earth One, but not enough to read volume 2. Batman was okay, too, but nothing special.

Morrison + Paquette = my first Earth One purchase.

At the pace Multiversity's going, my grandkids will get to read issue 1.

Grant Morrison Talks DC Comics, Being a Rock Star in the Comics World, and His Take on Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, and Multiversity

Quote:
On Multiversity:

This new book is something that Iíve been working on for quite awhile. Itís nine issues that are 40 pages each. The first one and the last one comprise an 80-page, giant DC super-spectacular story. There are seven comics, each of which come from a different parallel universe, all with a different storytelling approach and artistic look. Each one is drawn by a different artist, but each of them combine. DC Comics has always had this idea of the multi-verse, where there are multiple parallel universes that all occupy the same space, but vibrate at different frequencies. Itís that idea of comic book universes as music. Thatís what the vibration is. And when you hear them all vibrating together, it makes the most beautiful music youíve ever heard, and you can choose what you want that music to be. So, weíre exploring that concept with this book.

They established that, in each of the worlds of the DC multi-verse, they read comic books about the other worlds. In one world, a fictional character can be a real person. So, we chose to make that the basis of this story. Basically, each of the worlds can read the comic book that we just read, the month before, and theyíre all facing a gigantic cosmic threat, which is the most terrifying thing that anybodyís ever read in a comic. I donít do hyperbole, so this is the one. Each of the worlds all connect, and they pass on a message to the next world, that something terrible is happening and something is bringing down the structure of the multi-verse.

The first of the seven books is a kind of Justice League of the multi-verse and how they come together. It features the black Superman that we had in Action Comics #9, Calvin Ellis. Heís the main character in that one. The second one is a pulp universe thatís the 1940′s characters that fit the pulp archetype. Itís set in a world where thereís only two billion people. Itís 2013, but they just had a major world war, and out of that comes a particular set of circumstances. The next one is set on Earth 11. There was this concept of the super-sons, where Superman and Batman had a couple of sons that were real mean bastards when they grew up. They just werenít happy about the legacy their fathers had left them. So, the next one is about this world of the children of superheroes and what happens after youíve turned the world into utopia, so thereís nothing for you to do, but you can punch out mountains. We chose to do it in the style of The Hills, with these really super bland conversations. We wanted something as shallow, flat and on the surface, but with superheroes and the kind of conversations that superheroes would have. Youíll see a lot of the Ď90s characters who have been consigned to the dust bins. Theyíve got nothing to do, so they perform battle re-enactments. Thatís another book, which I canít really describe the ambiance of.

Then, we took the storytelling devices of Watchmen and applied them to the Charlton characters that Watchmen was originally inspired by. Instead of Watchmenís nine-panel grid, we have an eight-panel grid that reflects the musical harmonics that underpin the whole series. Itís based on the number eight, which becomes really important through everything. In 40 pages, weíve done this thing that is probably the best thing weíve ever done in superhero comics. After that is a great take on the Captain Marvel stuff, and itís done as an all-ages book. It has a completely different tone, and itís a really neat little story thatís self-contained.

After that are the Nazi superheroes thatís set on what used to be Earth X, but itís not Earth 10. The idea behind it is that the Nazis won World War II and took over the world. Itís like, what if the classic DC world has been played with and Hitler got ahold of the super-baby, and the world emerges from that. We didnít want to do something dull. This one was meant to feel like a big Shakespeare-style HBO series. Imagine if you were Superman and for the first 25 years of your life you were working for Hitler, and then you go, ďOh, my god, itís Hitler! ****, now I get it! Now I see who the baddie is!Ē And he cleans up and creates a utopia, but that utopia is based on the Nazi principles that he was indoctrinated with. Everything is wrong, overblown and ready for destruction in this culture, and Superman knows it. He knows that his entire society, even though it looks like utopian, has been built on the bones of the dead and ultimately is wrong and must be destroyed. To that comes the Freedom Fighter characters led by Uncle Sam, who is the last remnant of the America that was conquered in 1956. Heís gathered all the people that Hitler killed. Weíve recast all the Freedom Fighter characters as Hitlerís enemies. Itís all the people who Hitler persecuted, and itís the return of the oppressed. Itís a big Game of Thrones, hardcore story about what happens when your entire society is under threat from terrorists who actually embody the good. Worse than that, your leader, Superman, knows that theyíre right and that itís time for this society to die.

Following that, the seventh issue of the book is called Ultra Comics. Itís the one thatís set in this world, where we actually use this technology that will blow your mind. Youíve never had this experience before with a comic book. Thatís all that Iím going to say. Itís something you have never seen before, and itís an actual superhero that weíre going to make, in front of you. In the midst of all of that, thereís a guidebook where weíre going to show you how the multi-verse works, and it will have a narrative element through it as well. And then, it ends with a bookend that completes the story that we started off in #1, and it unites all the strands of the narrative together. This is my magnum opus. This is why I love comics.

"Justice League of the Multiverse" sounds pretty awesome. Also, I like that he conceived it as a tour of seven alternate realities with two framing issues as bookends. That's a narrative structure that gets used a lot in comics, but it works really well.

Have faith. When the time has come, it will come out. I fear the universe is not ready yet for multiversity.

I know! Both are my most anticipated DC books. And they still have yet to show up solicits. Hopefully this year. But I feel like I've been hoping that for years now.
