“Funeral For a Friend”

By | Mar 28, 2017 | Reviews

Last month, I revisited “The Death of Superman” for the first time in quite some time. I can honestly say that I haven’t read its follow up, “Funeral for a Friend,” since it was originally published, when I was ten years old. I was interested in seeing just how the fallout was handled, and how […]

By | Mar 28, 2017 | Columns

Buying comics can be an expensive hobby. A lot of fans simply can’t afford everything they’re interested in, due to rising prices and the over-saturation of the market with superhero titles. That’s why we’re here. Every week, the Multiversity staff is asked “What would you buy this week if you couldn’t go over $20?” and […]

Exclusive Preview: “Rom” #8

By | Mar 27, 2017 | Previews

“Rom” was one of the great ‘lost’ titles in comics, having had a Marvel run in the 80’s and then, due to licensing agreements changing, not much until last year, when IDW brought back the character for its first ongoing since the Reagan administration. We are thrilled to share an exclusive first look at the […]

Exclusive Preview: “Unfollow” #17

By | Mar 27, 2017 | Previews

Vertigo Comics launched “Unfollow” back in 2015 from creators Rob Williams and Michael Downling, and at the time, it seemed like a novel concept that wasn’t all that out of line from the world we already lived in. Well, since it launched, the world has only gotten more social media obsessed, and the series seems […]

Three cheers for double-shipping! Dan Jurgens and Doug Mahnke round out the final 100m of the ‘Superman Reborn’ relay that’s been sprinting through their book and “Superman” for the past month. Instead of closing out a run for the ages, “Action Comics” #976 tends to stumble across the finish line. And while there’s some fun […]

Panels and Bars: Hip-Hop and Comics

By | Mar 14, 2017 | Longform

The relationship between hip-hop and comics is unfortunately one-sided. Hip-hop loves comics, adores it even. Cannibal Ox constantly reference Caped Crusaders and Web Slingers in their lyrics, MF DOOM’s entire aesthetic is owed to Marvel, Ghostface Killah’s debut solo album is called Ironman and uses Tony Starks as alias. There are rappers named after characters […]

Zander Cannon Talks The Future of “Kaijumax”

By | Mar 21, 2017 | Interviews

“Kaijumax” has been a Multiversity favorite ever since the first issue dropped. Zander Cannon’s insane mashup of kaiju and prison dramas has been a critical and commercial hit, getting an Eisner nomination and already producing two seasons of the comic. People really like giant bugs and lizards shanking each other and plotting jail breaks, it seems. […]

Robots From Tomorrow – Episode 220: Matt Kindt [Podcast]

By | Aug 20, 2015 | Podcasts

After 37 issues, to call Matt Kindt’s “Mind MGMT” an ‘accomplishment’ almost feels like an understatement. Kindt not only wrote, penciled, inked, colored and lettered the entire series, he also provided covers, back-up strips, supplemental material, a litany of secrets, and fake back page ads for every issue. With “New MGMT” #1, the final issue […]

Junji Ito’s Cat Diary: Yon & Mu

By | May 3, 2016 | Reviews

Cats are weird. I should know, seeing as how I live with three of ’em. They’re adorable little critters who love laps and claw at the curtains. I’ve sometimes imagined that it is a very real possibility that cats are actually some sort of low-level demons sent to live in our world. And, seeing as how […]
