Earth 2: World’s End Weekly Launching in October

DC Comics has announced a new Earth 2 weekly series over at Nerdist: World’s End. Set in the present-day DC Universe (or multiverse, more precisely), it will also relate to the five-years-later events of Future’s End. The series will be written by Daniel H. Wilson, Tom Taylor, Paul Levitz, Marguerite Bennet, and Mike Johnson, with art by Eddy Barrows, Jorge Jimenez, Stephen Segovia, Paulo Siqeira, and Tyler Kirkham.

As Earth 2 burns under the fires and fury of Apokolips, the planet’s few heroes unite to wage a futile war for survival against a dark god of unimaginable and unmatched power.

No word yet on whether the monthly Earth 2 series will end to make way for World’s End, but it seems likely.

Head over to Nerdist for a more detailed view of the preview art by Ben Oliver. Even if a certain modern-day Mercury seems to be missing…

“The Resurrected Hope” – Review of EARTH 2 #22

earth 2 22 coverThis issue of EARTH 2 has a theme of resurrection – in more ways that one.  A hero returns, another learns his way, and the “resurrected hope” may have the key to any chance our Wonders have of survival!


The returning hero is revealed in the first pages…Alan Scott is once again saved (or this time, resurrected) by the green flame. His teammates are unaware of this so far, as events elsewhere are ready to unfold quickly.  Young Jimmy Olsen of Earth 2 (only 13 years old on this Earth) is starting to figure out some of the meanings of Doctor Fates ramblings…including the identity of the person identied as the “resurrected hope”…and no, it isn’t Alan Scott.  As the Kryptonian starts to gain power, the group is attacked – and that sets up the twist at the end that may finally turn this battle around…but for that we’ll have to wait until next issue.

Tom Taylor is an excellent storyteller, and this issue is no exception.  There are a number of events going on simultaneously, but it doesn’t look forced – everything is blending well into the main plot.  The art as always is outstanding – I love Nicola Scott’s pencils, Trevor Scott’s inks and Pete Pantazis’ color work.  Jay Garrick fans will need to wait just a bit longer to see him in this story…but fans of these Wonders should be happy with another great issue of EARTH 2.
