Grant Morrison's trip through the different Earths of the DC Universe kicked off in late August with "The Multiversity" #1, offering fans a glimpse of what's to come in the rest of the series fans have been waiting years to read.
"Back in the days when we were doing [DC Comics' weekly] '52,' we had this big idea that [Mark] Waid and [Greg] Rucka and Geoff Johns and me were gonna do a bunch of books set in the worlds of the multiverse that we'd restored at the end of '52,' but it just didn't pan out," Morrison told CBR TV of the long-gestating series. "But because we spoke of it back then, it was kind of on people's radar and over the years I took it upon myself to finish this project and I've just been adding to it and adding to it."
Today, CBR has the exclusive first look at two of the variant covers for "Multiversity: The Just." Eduardo Risso's cover offers a Bizarro version of the Justice League's first encounter with Starro the conquerer, while Dale Eaglesham's variant is a classic take on the Flash, as Barry Allen runs headlong into the unknown with the aid of his cosmic treadmill.
Risso's cover will ship in a 1:25 allocation, while Eaglesham's will be available in a 1:50 allocation.

The next chapter of the greatest adventure in DC's history is here!
When they last collaborated, Grant Morrison joined artist Ben Oliver (LOBO, BATMAN/SUPERMAN) for the acclaimed ACTION COMICS #0. For their next team-up, the two superstars take a spin around the self-obsessed Earth-16 - a.k.a. Earth-Me!
With all of the world's threats having been handled long ago by their parents, the next generation of supers - including Chris Kent, Damien Wayne, Alexis Luthor, Offspring, Megamorpho, Donna Troy and more - find themselves labeled as superstars more often than super heroes. But with that fame comes complacency, and when a massive threat unlike anything they've ever seen surfaces, this pampered crew finds themselves in way over their head. What secret is Damien keeping from Chris that could tear the world's finest friends apart? Who is the mysterious killer lurking behind the scenes among these spoiled super-children? And what chance do they stand against the monstrous villain that's murdering its way cross the Multiverse? All that and more in this exciting stand-alone issue which also acts as chapter three of the MULTIVERSITY saga. Join us, if your dare, for THE MULTIVERSITY!
