“Batman” #401

By | May 31, 2024 | Reviews

Multiversity Says Goodbye: Join Us For Our Livestream of X-Men Origins: Wolverine Friday at 4pm ET

By | May 30, 2024 | Columns

As we refuse to let you forget, Multiversity Comics was started because our founder Matthew Meylikhov thought X-Men Origins: Wolverine wasn’t as bad as folks were saying. Whether we all agree with him or not is a topic for another day…actually, that day is tomorrow. As the last ‘official’ action of Multiversity in its full […]

Interviews
Mary Pope Osborne on Free Play, Reading, and Joy in “Magic Tree House”

By | May 27, 2024 | Interviews

Mary Pope Osborne is not a big name in comics but she is a gigantic name in the world of children's literature. Her "Magic Tree House" series has been running for over 30 years and inspired multiple generations of readers, like myself, to inquire deeply and with openness. Her 39th (or maybe it's 67th) "Magic Tree House" book, "Windy Night with Wild Horses" has just come out. It was a joy to get to talk to her about a wide range of topics related to her books, in particular the graphic novel adaptations by Jenny Laird and Kelly & Nicole Matthews that are going three years strong, with book 7, "Sunset of the Sabertooth" on the horizon.

Manga: A Reconciliation

By | Oct 26, 2015 | Longform

At Multiversity, we love comics. Sometimes, love is complicated. This is a story of why an Asian-American comics reader departed from Asian comics, and why he came back.  My relationship with manga has been symptomatic of complicated relationships between culture and identity, reading and longing.  But at some point, I had to ask myself those […]

This American Death: East of West #1

By | Apr 3, 2013 | Annotations

It’s always worth celebrating a new Jonathan Hickman comic book. (And we did, by making it “Pick of the Week” when it came out.) And while they are almost always rich, enjoyable comic book experiences, Hickman comics also tend to be very densely-packed and not afraid to challenge your literary intelligence. While “East of West” […]
