• At this past weekend’s MorrisonCon, writer Grant Morrison revealed more details of his Multiversity project for DC. Scheduled for later in 2013, the project comprises six one-shots and a pair of bookend issues, plus a guidebook to the whole thing. Each one-shot will feature an alternate Earth, one with the Charlton heroes, another where World War II never ended, and yet another with a version of the original Captain Marvel. Those descriptions sound like the pre-Crisis Earths 4, X, and S, respectively.
