The Multiversity: The End is Near as March and April Solicitations Released

multiv cv2-1Grant Morrison's long-in-gestation superhero crossover The Multiversity will come to a close on April 1, the same day DC Comics' three weekly series wrap up and Convergence begins...and Uproxx has a look at the solicitation text for the final two issues of the book.

The Multiversity: Ultra Comics centers on the alleged "cursed comic book" that has appeared, at least briefly, in every issue of The Multiversity so far.  It will reunite Morrison with artist Doug Mahnke, who drew part of Final Crisis after J.G. Jones departed the series.

And whoa, Nellie, is it getting all Grant Morrison up in here...

The penultimate chapter of the greatest adventure in DC’s history is here!

The acclaimed FINAL CRISIS team of Grant Morrison and Doug Mahnke reunite for a story so big it could only take place in the real world – that’s right, Earth-33 is back!
With the Multiverse under attack, a team of scientists create one final savior to take on the otherworldly threat…and its name is Ultra Comics! Literally held in your hands, one being will attempt to halt the annihilation of creation – and you, the reader, will have a front-row seat as you become an integral part of the resistance!

It’s another exciting, experimental story told by two of today’s top creators! You won’t want to miss this exciting issue which acts as chapter eight of THE MULTIVERSITY storyline.

Next up is The Multiversity #2, which will presumably pick up where The Multiversity #1 left off, with the heroes of a number of alternate earths being summoned to combat a wave of dark energy from a twisted Monitor.
