Dark Crisis: The Big Bang Details The New DC Multiverse (Spoilers)

Tomorrow's Dark Crisis: Big Bang one-shot published by DC Comics, is a run around all the infinite worlds that have been now released courtesy of Pariah's actions in the Dark Crisis On Infinite Earths event. Some you may recognise…

…such as the world seen in the recent Dark Knights Of Steel series, now established as part of the Multiverse and Omniverse. And it's not alone.

There's also the world of the Jurassic League, with dinosaur DC Comics characters. There isn't as far as I can see, the universe which fell to DC Vs Vampires,  understandably… but it does pop up in the index, and in WildCATS #2, also out tomorrow.

And the Grifter in the DC Universe, it seems, is the one from DC Vs Vampires who jumped next door like Rick Sanchez. Though last issue it was DCeased. Is it all a grift? But back to Dark Crisis: Big Bang, more and more and more worlds play out…

There's even the Earth 33, universe from which you are sitting and reading the comic, or reading Bleeding Cool…

And Earth 66 for Batman '66, the one in which The Joker has a moustache with makeup on top. And then we have a new list of worlds, not comprehensive, only purporting to be what the Flash can jot down as he whizzes from reality to reality… but at least he writes down which comic book series they are from, courtesy of doing some speed reading on Earth 33. And including way down the dial, and Amalgam universe, just in case Marvel and DC want to do some talking.
