    And I aint digging a map of the multiverse either.

    Shit supposed to be the infinite. How the fuck is there a map of it?

    (forgive my hating but I loved Pre 52 DC like it was my first child....to see where it is now is killing me)

    I think they've more or less found their footing though. I agree though, even for a nigga that had been out of comics for a long time like me, the initial wave of New 52 titles and characterizations was quite jarring.

    Multiversity-map_1400x1074-1.jpg

    ComicsAlliance: The Multiversity is a comic book story that’s been years in the making. I’d be interested to start with how, in your mind, the shape of Multiversity has changed in the eight years since we’ve first heard about it.

    Grant Morrison: Well originally came out with what we were doing in 52, back in the day with Geoff and Mark and Greg. Originally it was going to be related to that, and as you’ve seen lots of things happened in the end to them. I was pretty busy. The story took a long time to put together and we had to create fifty new universes. It’s been a long time, and also, we’ve been waiting for artists.

    The artists are very good in this book and it’s just taken people quite a long time. So over that time, the DC Universe has changed quite considerably, which is why I left the guide book to the very end so I could kind of tie it in. So everything is updated along with the New 52, and I think the fact that they called it New 52 makes this book more appropriate now because it kind of serves as an expansion of that universe rather than something different.

    BTW there are still infinite earths in the DC universe. The thing is there are 52 main earths but each of those earths houses it's own infinite possibilities of multiple earths on it's own. The earths all exist within the orrery but the orrery is comprised of a patchwork of different dimensions. So for example Earth prime could have different earths based on it within it's own dimension. It's just that now the infinite earths will be based somehow on one of the 52 main earths it spins off from instead of being more scattered around like in the bronze age. Grant Morrison has said this shit ad naseum for like the last 3 years now but comic book fans have selective memory.

    That was the best explanation of the multiversal map on youtube. Though they forgot to point out one awesome thing. Earth 6 is the "Just Imagine Stan Lee created DC" universe were books like this one took place

    987015-just_imagine_stan_lee_s_jla___page_1.jpg

    Funnily enough the Gods of Apokalips have direct influence over this world which could explain it's "grounded grittiness" like what was found in a lot of Lee's Marvel concepts (I.e.: Spider-Man, The Hulk).

    Aligned in contrast with it is Earth 51 which is the Jack Kirby earth where characters like Kamandi exist. The Gods of New Genesis have direct influence over this world which is more whimsical and sci-fi like a lot of the Marvel concepts Kirby came up with (I.e.: Galactus and his herald, Asgard, Inhumans etc.).

    That was such a dope approach to take having Kirby and Lee on opposite sides of the spectrum just like Highfather and Darkseid. It comes full circle sinceKirby created them to kinda highlight the differences in approach to a more "Marvel" like plane of existence (Apokalips) a more "DC" like one (New Genesis) when he created the 4th World and it's concepts. It's both logical and metatextual. Genius.

    Future's End has gotten really good. Last week's ending was wonderfully fucked up.

    Green Lantern Godhead is turning out nicely; but Kyle's Gary Stu-ness is turning up. Also future's end is really turning up now with the latest entry into the gauntlet.

    Kyle has always been a Gary Stu. His whole existence depends on that trope and it could get outrageous at times./ I do like that the New Gods of New Genesis are back to the power range that they're supposed to be in though. Jim Starlin had fucked those characters up something awful before the New 52 happened.

    That fight between Batman and the League was kinda dope and the backup story about Joker was as intriguing as it was creepy.

    Sinestro is true to his name sake in the new godhead chapter...guy says he's trimming the fat off the yellow lantern corps. :))

    Sinestro is the only book I've been skipping during Godhead. I mean the event has even got me reading NG again and I fucking loathe the Kyle and Carol romance. It's just that the Cullen Bunn guy's Lobo book was so mediocre that I'm not really checking for his writing like that. With that said I guess I'll give this months issue a shot.

    By the way since the only DC books most people read here are Batman ones (*yawns*) and I didn't see this posted on here since this thread is always dead I guess I'll drop this here even though it's old news everywhere else by now

    LOL get outta here man

    Kyle for a huge porton of his history was defined as the rookie/everyman Lantern. The "Kyle ALWAYS has a power upgrade" aspect of his character was only added because DC Editorial knew that when Hal Jordan (the true gary stu) was resurrected as lead of the franchise, sidelining/minimilizing Kyle was going to cause a huge backlash.

    So they just keep opting to make him "The Sixth Ranger" because he really has no true place with Hal, John, and Guy as active lanterns again.

    Still hate Nu52 btw.

    Like what the fuck is the point of Futures End? A bunch of one shots and a weekly series about possible futures that we KNOW won't come to pass? Shit given that almost none of the main books are paying attention to Futures End, it feels like a complete exercise in futility.

    Great spin job on DC's part but its really just DC having some retarded obsession with the the number 52. I get that theyre trying to establish the brand and forcing 52 down our throats is a way of doing it....But its coming off as excessive as the guy who wears an entire polo outfit with polo cologne (and we all know/knew that guy)
