Thanksgiving may not be until Thursday, but if you’re a longtime DC Comics reader, there’s plenty to be thankful for right now.
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.
In DC RETROACTIVE: SUPERMAN – THE '80s, Destiny shows Superman a bleak future overrun by chaos, where even the greatest heroes have abandoned all hope and courage. And to make matters even worse, he is tested to his breaking point as he is shown a future where his closest living relative, Kara, is no longer alive. In order to save the fate of the world and the lives of millions of people, Superman is presented with a decision that may be the biggest moral conflict he’s had to face yet.
FLASHPOINT: SECRET SEVEN #1 comes to us from a distinguished creative team indeed. Peter Milligan is the writer of many acclaimed titles, notably SHADE THE CHANGING MAN, the cult classic published by Vertigo in the ‘90s.
