Multiversity #1 Review
Newsarama was right when they said that Multiversity will blow your mind. I am still not sure what to make of it. Not sure if I liked the first issue or not. I enjoyed reading it, but not sure if I liked it. I like the premise, that's for sure. But I wish the book had a little more subtlety to it. A lot of the the things were narrated/explained to us that felt a bit like the after credit scene in Anchorman where Ron Burgundy is narrating everything that is happening effectively ruining the moment. Some of the characters were kind of weird, but that is what this comic is supposed to be about "weirdness", am I right?
The Marvel analog characters for the Avengers I thought were pretty lame. Marvel did a great job with the DC analogs (The Great Society), DC not so much with the Retaliators. The comic book geek Flash is also not a favorite of mine. This series will take some time to get used to. I was kinda hoping for one-shots of different characters but it seems like the book has an encompassing arc that involves all the characters. Anyhow, it was definitely different which is good. I'm really looking forward to the next issue featuring Doc Fate!
