Multiversity by Grant Morrison has been a journey through the new DC Multiverse, but it’s also been a showcase of DC Comics’ best artists. February 2015’s issue will keep that up, with The Multiversity: Mastermen featuring art by Jim Lee and Scott Williams, as announced on Uproxx.com.
The subject? A world where Nazis won the war and essentially controlled the world from there on out. Overman is the Nazi Superman, and The Freedom Fighters: Uncle Sam, Phantom Lady, Black Condor, Human Bomb, Doll Man, and The Ray must take him (and his compatriots) out. The world is Earth-X (not that one), and it’s due out February 18, 2015. Full solicitation text follows.

Superstar writer Grant Morrison joins legendary artist Jim Lee on Earth-10 for one of the most dynamic, action-packed issues of this entire world-shattering series – THE MULTIVERSITY: MASTERMEN!
Imagine a world where the Nazis not only won World War II but went on to direct world culture for the next 60 years with the help of an orphaned, alien super-weapon known as Overman! But hope is not lost! Rising from the ashes of oppression are a diverse band of heroes raging against the fascist regime – a band of heroes known as THE FREEDOM FIGHTERS!
What nightmarish parallel worlds haunt the dreams of Overman? Who is the mysterious figure called Uncle Sam? And when the dust settles, will the actions of Phantom Lady, Black Condor, Human Bomb, Doll Man and The Ray be enough to stop Leatherwing, Blitzen and the other “heroes” of Earth-X?
Learn all this and more in this exciting issue that acts as chapter seven of the critically acclaimed MULTIVERSITY storyline.
