In case Batman Eternal wasn’t enough of a reason to get you going to your local comic book store each week, DC Comics is kicking off Wondercon weekend with a bang by announcing a brand new weekly series, Earth 2: World’s End. Much like Eternal, Earth 2: World’s End has assembled a veritable Justice League of creative talent, with Daniel H. Wilson, Tom Taylor, Paul Levitz, Marguerite Bennet, and Mike Johnson writing the series and Eddy Barrows, Jorge Jimenez, Stephen Segovia, Paulo Siqeira, and Tyler Kirkham providing the visual splendor.
For those of you who haven’t been following DC’s Earth-2 series, it’s been a fascinating alternate universe to explore, and World’s End looks like it’s going to crank the crisis dial up to eleven. Of the series, Wilson, who is serving as a showrunner of sorts, said, “This has been a charmed opportunity to jump straight into the deep end of a gritty, complex DC Comics series. I feel incredibly lucky to work with Mike Cotton and the rest of the legendary DC team, figuring out the ultimate fates (and sometimes origins) of so many compelling Earth 2 characters in crisis. I’m having the time of my life.”
While you’ll have to wait until October 2014 to see what’s in store for the denizens of Earth 2, we have en exclusive piece of promo art from Ben Oliver to tide you over.Huntress in peril? Doctor Fate’s helmet on the ground? Exploding planets? Whatever DC has in store for Earth 2, with a subtitle like World’s End, it can’t be good.
