On that basis alone, the show was a success.

While our MorrisonCon correspondents are sleeping off their opium binges, here’s a bit more of what went down: speaking in barely intelligible and yet intensely quotable sound bites, Morrison revealed more about ‘Multiversity’, his long-brewing summation of DC continuity, two wrap-around stories and six one shots, including and Pax Americana which will be drawn by Frank Quitely.

Pax Americana references Watchmen’s famous nine-panel grid by adhering largely to an eight-panel grid, which Morrison explained was inspired by music, specifically octaves. He’d previously written stories about the multiverse vibrating on a musical frequency, and the eight-panel grid (or the multiples-of-eight grid, as the case may be), is a continuation of that theme.

“It’s like the Rutles version of Watchmen,” Morrison joked.

Multiversity’s ninth book will be what Morrison descried as a guidebook featuring a 20-page story and 20 pages of maps and concordances detailing the cosmic hierarchies and other details of the entire DC Comics multiverse.
