And Then I Read: MULTIVERSITY, THUNDERWORLD ADVENTURES

Is there room in Grant Morrison’s mind-bending Multiversity saga for light-hearted fun adventure stories? Yes, and here’s one. Grant teams with artist Cameron Stewart, bringing back fond memories of their SEAGUY, in a nostalgic look back to the Captain Marvel Comics of the 1940s, but with plenty of modern twists, including versions of the former Fawcett Comics characters from other universes. Captain Marvel villain Sivana is the main foe, though he has lots of help, and the storyline is full of action. The best thing about it, though it the humor and intelligence of the script. Grant clearly had great fun writing it, and Cameron Stewart’s art has never looked better. Even if the rest of MULTIVERSITY doesn’t interest you, this one is well worth reading, and you won’t feel left out if you haven’t read the others.
