DC Comics has a long and confusing history when it comes to their many parallel universes. DC’s favorite number, 52, is coincidentally the number of parallel earths all sharing the same space but just happen to be vibrating at different frequencies. Along with Crisis on Infinite Earths, the relatively recent reboot of many of their franchises, and other, DC’s Multiverse is no simple thing to grasp and many (myself included) find it dauntingly overcomplicated.
And that’s where Grant Morrison comes in. Mastermind writer, fan favorite, and comic legend – he plans to head a new DC event series entitled Multiversity, probably because he plans to school us, big time.

Multiversity #1 is on sale today, and at $4.99 with 48 pages, it’s the most exciting new project I’ve heard of for a long time.
