What if a… Multiversity? Literatura y ciencia en la obra de Grant Morrison. (Madrid: Ediciones Marmotilla, 2019) Available here.


The concept of the multiverse is one of the few that has been able to link what are traditionally referred to as two cultures: the sciences and the arts. This book examines Grant Morrison’s The Multiversity to trace the overlaps between these two territories. The idea of multiverse has been developed in comics since 1961 with the publication of The Flash of Two Worlds, and has found its maximum expression in recent years with the construction of superhero multiverses. Grant Morrison’s work culminates this process of construction and Angélica Cabrera accurately analyzes it with precision in her book.


«No hay duda de que la ciencia es una maravillosa constructora de relatos y que la ficción es un modo de conocimiento sumamente efectivo. Las superposiciones de territorios están ahí pero pocos como Angélica saben verlas y el lector de estas páginas saldrá, no me cabe ninguna duda, recompensado doblemente. Y eso no es poco en este mundo de saberes epidérmicos y fragmentados.» José Manuel Trabado Cabado, Professor of Literary Theory and Comparative Literature at the University of León, Spain.
