    I'll tell you something that might be more helpful: you're probably not going to enjoy this story. Its purpose and intent are different from your expectations. That's OK: this stuff isn't for...

    Yeah, the story leading up to Iris's death involved PCP/Angel Dust, which during the late 1970s, was *the* most feared abused substance in the world. It's hard to believe that just a year earlier,...

    I'd say he looks *more* like Superman than he did the first time around. The hairstyle, especially, is much more Supermanesque this time.

    Maybe some other day; revisiting the past isn't the purpose that I think Morrison has in mind for MULTIVERSITY, but perhaps the paradigm he's setting up will provide the instrument for someone else...

    Dare we dream of a Captain Carrot/Hoppy, the Marvel Bunny team up? Additionally, since DC is a Time Warner company, why not throw in Super Bugs Bunny while we're at it?

    Morrison tends to respect whatever characters he chooses to write; I've never seen a character actually suffer any indignities at Morrison's pen. Morrison made even the Psycho Pirate a subject for...

    One thing I would love would be a DC Comic that serves essentially as a comic book review panel, with Nix Uotan, Superboy Prime, and Barry Allen as the panelists and Grant Morrison as the emcee.

    During the 1980s and 1990s, I liked how the presence/absence of the yellow oval on Batman's costume was visual shorthand for when a story took place. Back then, if Batman wore his costume without a...

    DC has treated Cyborg pretty damn well as a Justice Leaguer in the New 52. He's been front and center in many of the stories (often more so than the traditional heavy-hitters), and has saved the day...

    This is how Alex Ross often works. When he was doing his takes on the DC characters, he had various people model the characters for him in costume.

    Indeed, what about Batman? I noticed (with some amusement) that on Earth-23, Batman seems somewhat marginalized. He was there in many panels of the Earth-23 Justice League group shots, but he was...

    That isn't so implausible, really. The "Gentry" (e.g. "people?") has bat wings, is cyclopean (myopia?), and seems preoccupied with the shadowy side of existence.

    What do you guys reckon the one-eyed, bat-winged antagonist the "Gentry" represents? Is the Gentry an avatar for comic book fans? Comic book writers/publishers?

    Another possible turning point year for DC Comics was 1979.

    That year:

    1. The murder of Mr. Terrific.

    2. The murder of Iris West Allen.

    3. The violent death of the Golden Age Batman.

    My lasting memory of the Comics Code era is blood that was various shades of purple or black (but never red).

    Dude, read it.

    Not reading MULTIVERSITY would be like being a classic rock fan and refusing to listen to SGT. PEPPER or DARK SIDE OF THE MOON. :)
