Earth 2 Much?

"Grump Old Fan" on CBR’s Robot 6 ponders some of the additions to the new 52 line-up.

And that brings us back to the two parallel-world — excuse me, next-generation superhero — titles, Earth 2 from James Robinson and Nicola Scott and Worlds’ Finest from Paul Levitz, George Pérez, and Kevin Maguire. I will be getting both of these eagerly, mostly because of my stated affection for the old Multiverse. Again, though, I wonder how many of the New-52′s newer readers will be interested in a pair of books which (re)introduce another Earth’s worth of continuity? 

I figure at least in both of the titles the parallel world element is hinted at in the title. An hopefully people come back because the content is great.
