The Multiversity: Mastermen #1 Preview

Written By: Grant Morrison
Art By: Jim Lee, Scott Williams
Cover Price: $4.99
Release Date: February 18, 2015

Superstar writer Grant Morrison joins legendary artist Jim Lee on Earth-10 for one of the most dynamic, action-packed issues of this entire world-shattering series – THE MULTIVERSITY: MASTERMEN!
Imagine a world where the Nazis not only won World War II but went on to direct world culture for the next 60 years with the help of an orphaned, alien super-weapon known as Overman! But hope is not lost! Rising from the ashes of oppression are a diverse band of heroes raging against the fascist regime – a band of heroes known as THE FREEDOM FIGHTERS!
What nightmarish parallel worlds haunt the dreams of Overman? Who is the mysterious figure called Uncle Sam? And when the dust settles, will the actions of Phantom Lady, Black Condor, Human Bomb, Doll Man and The Ray be enough to stop Leatherwing, Blitzen and the other “heroes” of Earth-X?

You know, I usually complain about how simplistic solicits are and how they never match what actually goes down in the comic but yeesh, that's a big ass solicit!  Last month's Multiversity Guidebook really came off as a way to hype this series back up and get us on the trolley for the second leg of this story and if that's the case, it definitely worked.  I'm really excited for this one, I just hope Grant Morrison keeps the mind fucks to a minimum.


  1. I honestly can't believe a book drawn by Jim Lee( who is the best evaaar) is actually on time...

    1. In my mind, Grant gave him the script two years ago just to be safe.

    2. clearly you forgot the revelation in The Just issue...this comic is from another earth, drawn by a jim lee that works on time :P
