With his upcoming film (in theaters April 5!) what better way to get prepared than to read Thunderworld Adventures (and hopefully the rest of The Multiversity) with us!
WHAT TO READ:
Thunderworld Adventures #1
The Multiversity: Guidebook #1

COMING UP NEXT WEEK: Our Journey through The Multiversity comes to an end as we read
Ultra Comics #1 and The Multiversity #2!
I’ll kick off the discussion with Guidebook #1. There’s so many fun worlds to read and look at. From the gender bent world to the captain marvel world trying to map out the multiverse was a lot. The number of gaps though frustrated me alot
Super excited to re read thunderworld again with everyone!
Just saw you guys on DC Daily and have never explored the community before. Nice to see it is active and that there’s a book club.
That’s so cool!
I Book club and DCU.
I look forward to reading these issues.
Can’t wait to revisit Mastermen! Easily my favorote part of The Multiversity epic.
Welcome to the family, @carlandjaysen. We are very active and we hope you enjoyed our fan takeover of DC Daily.
@matt sent you something on discord to look at!
Loved the fan take over episode, and I want to be down with book club also so here I am! Multiversity I’m looking forward to, it sounds reminiscent of Who’s Who?. Anyone here ever get a chance to read those?
Welcome @Shawn_Shambley! Glad to have you. I have not yet read Who’s Who?
@Shawn_Shambley I’ve read a variety of the Who’s Who books. They’re neat and fun (and fun and neat) yearly enclycopedias in comic book form.
I don’t think I own any Who’s Who books anymore but they were always interesting reads.
Congrats on you and JL getting into DC Daily!!! It was super cool to see you guys practically advertise the book club! It looked so fun to be there!
Thanks! It was a blast, I had a great time!
Glad to hear our message was received! Thanks for dropping in!
It was quite the experience that’s for sure! The whole day was a blast.
That’s so awesome! Glad you’re hear.
Just got back to you, sorry for the late response!
So I read Thunderworld Adventures on the plane yesterday and I loved it. About a month ago my friend asked for recommend Shazam reading and I told him Thunderworld. It’s just a perfect constriction of the character, IMO.
My favorite part of the book was the juxtaposition to the murderous Sivana. It really shows the different shades of the DCU.
But what did YOU think of Thunderworld Adventures?!
And does it make you more excited for the Shazam film?!
(Also please don’t spoil the Shazam movie. There have been a lot of early screenings, but it’s still not out! So please please please no spoilers)
Is there a reason that we’re reading them out of the order they we’re released? I know this doesn’t have to do with the comics we’re reading this week (loving them btw), but I’ve been curious.
This is the release order and the order in which they are collected. Glad you’re enjoying it!
