Multiversity Guidebook #1

The Multiversity Guidebook #1 (of 1) — Writer: Grant Morrison;  Artists: Marcus To and Paulo Siqueira;  Colors: Dave McCaig and Hi-Fi This is expensive ($7.99) but also awesome — more than just a guidebook, it’s a 34-page story spotlighting the Batman: L’il Gotham characters (who turn out to be from Earth-42), plus Kamandi (Earth-51), whose story summarizes the history of alternate Earths in the DC Universe since “Flash of Two Worlds,” plus the Batman from the Atomic Knights timeline (Earth-17), plus the Legion of Sivanas and other tie-ins to the other “Multiversity” books Morrison has been producing; these all make … Continue reading

Wicked and Divine #3

The Wicked and the Divine #5 — Writer: Kieron Gillen;  Art: Jamie McKelvie;  Colors: Matthew Wilson This is a sharp-looking book — you could cut yourself on McKelvie’s precise, thin lines — and the theme’s about death and art, so it can be grim and gory (particularly so in one scene in this issue), but there’s also a warmth in both the words and the pictures, and a passionate humanity at its core that makes everything work. This issue concludes the first arc, and the last scene (which I assume will also be the end of the first trade) is … Continue reading
