    "If You Value Your Lives, You Must NOT Read This Comic Book!"

    You gotta love it, the old-school shmaltzy salesmanship (reverse-psychology style) of those Kirby Fourth World books from the early 1970s ("Don't ASK! Just BUY!!") paired with the old Julius Schwartz-type cover gimmicks:

    The only thing missing here is a banner across the top of the cover proclaiming "MORRISON is HERE!!!"
    Think the original Crisis on Infinite Earths by way of the perspective of Flex Mentallo (with maybe a smidgen of Seven Soldiers tossed in), with a respectful homaging of the above-referenced DC tropes, and you'll have a pretty good mental picture of what to expect... to a degree. There's still a freshness of its own to it.
    Nobody loves a good meta-comic like I do, and nobody quite writes 'em like Morrison does.
    If only DC published more comic books like this one.

          CBR's Grumpy Old Fan also has some interesting thoughts on the significance of MULTIVERSITY.
