WORLDS’ FINEST #25
Written by PAUL LEVITZ
Art by TYLER KIRKHAM
Cover by BARRY KITSON
On sale JULY 9 • 32 pg, FC, $2.99 US • RATED T
Power Girl and Huntress return to the ruins of Earth 2, but they question whether their trip was worth the effort as they discover the state of their former home and friends.

Bleeding Cool covered DC’s All Access panel at WonderCon. Here is what they had to say about Earth 2 books:

Also coming up, we have Earth 2: World’s End, and Mike Cotton said that a lot of stuff happening in other books leading up to this will “come to a head” with Daniel H. Wilson writing, and Paul Levitz will be involved. It’s really “about the end of the world” and asking “How do you handle your world falling apart and fighting gods?” “It’s dark and mean and I don’t like happy endings” said Cotton.

If I had to bet, I would say at least Worlds’ Finest gets the axe before Earth 2: World’s End starts.

Newsarama has revealed the covers to The New 52: Futures End #2-4. The cover for #3 by Ryan Sook has an image of Mister Terrific watching Batman Beyond while working out. Obviously watching Batman Beyond while working out sounds like a lot of fun but I don’t think he is watching the cartoon show. He looks like he is surveilling this Batman. Maybe after his run in with Terry Sloane on Earth 2 Michael Holt does not like guys named Terry and is going after Terry McGinnis. Hah!
On another note I don’t think we’ve seen Mister Terrific with “Fair Play” tattooed on his back before. “Fair” use to go around his right bicep, and “Play” went around his left. As far as this cover goes it looks like those tattoos have disappeared. This could mean a  couple things.
Mister Terrific loves the phrase “Fair Play” so much he not only had it tattooed on his biceps but also on his back. And the artist of this cover found the bicep tats distracting so he took them out for the cover
This is not the Mister Terrific we know. This is a different Michael Holt. Back-Tat Michael Holt.
Between adventures on Earth 2 he go his bicep tats removed and got a bigger bolder “Fair Play” tattoo on his back. He obviously has a lot of time on his hands while Earth 2 is being destroyed by evil-Superman.
What do you think of the new covers?

Nerdist has revealed that DC’s third weekly series premiering in October 2014 will be entitled, Earth 2: World’s End. The series will be written byTom Taylor, Paul Levitz, Daniel H. Wilson, Marguerite Bennet, and Mike Johnson. The art on the series will be provided by Eddy Barrows, Jorge Jimenez, Stephen Segovia, Paulo Siqeira, and Tyler Kirkham.
The above image by Ben Oliver shows that things aren’t going too well for Val, Power Girl, Batman, Huntress, Doctor Fate, and Green Lantern. For that matter Apokolips crushing the planet doesn’t bode well either.
Update: I just noticed that Batman is holding Huntress the same way Batman is holding Robin on the collected Batman: A Death in the Family (Jason Todd’s Death).
Do you think this will be in addition or in place of Earth 2 and Worlds’ Finest?

Comic Vine has a preview of the “First Contact” crossover in Worlds’ Finest #21 by Paul Levitz, Greg Pak, R.B. Silva, Joe Weems, and Norm Rapmund.
It is kind of odd that DC is skipping part 3 of this crossover and publishing part 4 first. Batman/Superman #9 (part 3) is scheduled to come out April 16, 2014.

Newsarama is starting to roll out early solicitations of DC Comics for June 2014. The New 52 - Futures End #5 solicitation is interesting.

Mr. Terrific unveils his latest technical achievement – but will it take over the DC Universe? Plus, Firestorm’s inner conflict explodes!

This leads me to believe that Earth 2 is the the other earth they are referring to in the May Solicitations.

Five years from now, the DC Universe is reeling from a war with another Earth…

And that is why it is Futures End not Future’s End.
