The Multiverse sprawling epic concerning the safeguarding of the multiverse Supermen continues in Multiplicity pt 2 written by Peter J Tomassi and Patrick Gleason with jam-packed art by Ryan Sook, Ed Benes, Clay Mann, and Jorge Jimenez.

It’s cool to see all of these illustrators in this issue. Ryan Sook’s art with the Justice League of Assassins is pretty cool to see in action, Ed Benes overall art with the multiverse league along with all of the salvaged Supermen interacting with each other was a treat for the eyes as much as it was a treat for the story beyond fan service. Clay Mann’s artwork displaying each trip that the Multiverse League made for each earth that was visited was entertaining, especially as it accompanied with the monolog that the writers provided so well. Just to see Superman interact with Superman Beyond was a cool giddy moment  Jorge Jiminez artwork does a great job displaying the antagonist that shows up at the end, even if there was only little pages of his artwork that was displayed. Although I feel that Ed Benes had the most pages featuring his artwork, it didn’t take away from the narrative flow that each illustrators pages provided.

I feel that the colors in this issue was a vast improvement over the colors that was placed in the last issue. I believe that Ulises Arreola did the colors from the last issue. And while they were colorful, they still felt a bit muted, whereas this issue, felt much more vibrant, kinetic and powerful. Other colorists gave a helping hand such as Dinei Ribero , Alejandro Sanchez alongside illustrator Ryan Sook who also contributed to coloring duties. This issue felt much more energetic with ripe power waiting to be emitted. Rob Leigh provides the letters and effectively delivers placement of the dialogue balloons and adding distinct colors to differentiate between the different voices of each character that enters and exits the scene. This is a must buy, as much as this series is a recommended read,  and it’s well worth your time. Definitely a pickup.
