The Multiversity: Origins

All week long we’ve been celebrating The Multiversity, Grant Morrison’s new series set within the DC Multiverse. While it’s possible to enjoy the comic without being familiar with the Multiverse, it can’t hurt to at least know where the idea comes from, and some of the pre-existing comics that have close ties to The Multiversity.

However, before we even get into where the Multiverse comes from, we suppose we should first explain what it is for anyone out there who may be new to the concept.

Get a first look at THE SHIELD #1

Spinning out directly from last month's "Red Circle" event from superstar writer J. Michael Straczynski, we've got a first look at THE SHIELD #1, the debut issue of the new ongoing series chronicling the patriotic hero's exploits. Along for the ride is an INFERNO co-feature. The main story, written by Eric Trautmann with art by Marco Rudy takes Lt. Joe Higgins -- a.k.a. the Shield -- into the hot spots across the globe where civilians fear to tread. His first mission finds him in Bialya, the nation destroyed by Black Adam in the pages of 52.
