EXCLUSIVE: DC Comics’ “Earth 2: World’s End” October Solicitations

Comment

DC Comics‘ new October-debuting weekly series “Earth 2: World’s End” is approaching soon — and the publisher has provided CBR with advance solicitations for the first four issues. Written by Daniel H. Wilson, Marguerite Bennett and Mike Johnson with art by Ardian Syaf, Jorge Jimenez, Eddy Barrows, Paolo Siquiera, Tyler Kirkham and Ed Benes, the series begins with a 48-page extra-sized issue that helps introduce the world of Earth 2 to readers, with new developments for Huntress, Power Girl, Hawkgirl, Doctor Fate and more during the course of the month.

Notably absent from the solicitations is current “Earth 2” writer Tom Taylor, who was very recently joined on that book by Bennett. Taylor was listed as one of the creative forces behind the book when the series was initially announced in April, though the solicitations indicate the situation may have changed. Paul Levitz announced his departure from the title in May, leaving Bennett, Johnson and Wilson as the remaining writers on the weekly series. CBR has reached out to DC Comics for clarification on Taylor’s absence.

Check out the solicitations and Yanick Paquette’s variant cover for “Earth 2: World’s End” #1 below.

Daniel H. Wilson, New York Times best-selling author of Robopocalypse and Robogenesis, delves into the world of EARTH 2 for the start of a new weekly series that will see the origins of a world much like the New 52 Earth, but yet so different. A world that saw its greatest heroes die – and new ones take their places. A world where Superman became it’s greatest villain, and a man named Zod seeks to save it, along with Batman, Green Lantern, The Flash and other heroes. A world they can only save from the forces of Apokolips through great personal sacrifice! Death and destruction will follow each week, and you’ll never know who will live and who will die! It all begins with this extra-sized debut issue!
