Nicola Scott was interviewed in the same Word Balloon episode that had the interview with Greg Pak. She talked about the secret origin of the Earth 2 series. I’d suggest listening to the podcast because the following was said in a light manner. Without that it could sound pretty harsh and it really didn’t come across that way. I found the pitch for 1960s JSA really interesting. It sounds kind of like JSA meets Mad Men. Anyway here is Nicola Scott on the the creation of Earth 2:


I was asked if I would like to do the job in June the year before it started and I don’t think I actually started on it until maybe January or February. I can’t remember when it was now. Now when I was first asked about it, it was going to be a 1960s JSA book where the heroes were all in their 40s and i think part of the reason why I was offered the job was because, you know, it would all be about the fashions and the trends and all that kind of stuff and they thought well maybe a girl would be good for that. So that is possibly why I was offered the job in the first place. That’s not quite being fair to DC but I think it’s probably one of the ingredients. And the idea continued to evolve as they were you know nutting it out and getting closer and closer. Eventually it got to the point where the idea got bigger and they knew - you know it turned into what it turned into. And I don’t know but I think there might have been a little bit of,  Oooo we already attached Nicola to this book and suddenly it’s a big boy book but a big boy book was kind of what I asked for. I said I want a testosterone book I want to see if I could draw one.

Weather DC thought that or not, there is no question that Nicola is kicking butt on the series.

Newsarama has a preview of Earth 2 #23 by Tom Taylor, Nicola Scott, Trevor Scott, Pete Pantazis, and covers by Gene Ha, and Mike Allred.
Oh man, that Mike Allred cover is gorgeous. I’d buy a JSA book from him any day. If you aren’t check out his Silver Surfer with Dan Slott. It is great.

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?
