4

Grant Morrison’s Multiversity mini-series has proven to be an unexpectedly fun rfrolic thruogh the various realities of DC’s multiverses. Well, perhaps unexpected is not the world, since Morrison actually excels at this kind of thing and he’s does it before —Seven Soldiers—and probably will do it again. Actually, since this has been in the works since at least 2009, maybe Morrison already did it before. Tt’s Multiversity—anything is possible.

Anyway, the series continuing with an issues drawn by Jim Lee that takes us to a dimension where The Nazis won. This is the seventh of 8 connnecting one0shots ritten by Morrison with art by various folks, depicting various alternative realities of the DCU. Elsewolrds will never really die, will it?

Superstar writer Grant Morrison joins legendary artist Jim Lee on Earth-10 for one of the most dynamic, action-packed issues of this entire world-shattering series – THE MULTIVERSITY: MASTERMEN!
Imagine a world where the Nazis not only won World War II but went on to direct world culture for the next 60 years with the help of an orphaned, alien super-weapon known as Overman! But hope is not lost! Rising from the ashes of oppression are a diverse band of heroes raging against the fascist regime – a band of heroes known as THE FREEDOM FIGHTERS!
What nightmarish parallel worlds haunt the dreams of Overman? Who is the mysterious figure called Uncle Sam? And when the dust settles, will the actions of Phantom Lady, Black Condor, Human Bomb, Doll Man and The Ray be enough to stop Leatherwing, Blitzen and the other “heroes” of Earth-X?
Learn all this and more in this exciting issue that acts as chapter seven of the critically acclaimed MULTIVERSITY storyline.

  1. “This is the seventh of 8 connnecting one0shots ritten by Morrison with art by various folks, depicting various alternative realities of the DCU. Elsewolrds will never really die, will it?”

    Actually, I think it is the 7th of 9. I believe there is the Ultra Comics one-shot left (with art by Doug Mankhe), and then the conclusion in The Multiversity #2 with art by Ivan Reiss. I seem to remember they annouced the event as 8 issues plus a guidebook, which does bring us up to 9.

  2. An issue drawn by Jim Lee? Great. (<- sarcasm)
    So, we'll never see it? Or did he start the issue 3 years ago when they first started talking about Multiversity?

  3. jonboy – I suspect that Lee must have finished the issue and that’s why we’re hearing about it now instead of when they launched Multiversity. Maybe they had someone ghosting him and drawing an issue from the same script so that it could come out on time regardless of whether he finished it or not?

  4. Yeah, it stands to reason that they’d have some kind of plan to make sure this gets completed on time, given the high profile of Multiversity. Lee seems like an unusual choice for a grim, operatic, Nazi-themed story, but then it’ll probably sell like proverbial hotcakes.
