The Telegraph ran a profile piece on Nicola Scott. With it was a nice quote from Tom Taylor:

I got pages from her last week and my jaw dropped.
For the first she was showing her version of Atlantis and it’s just stunning.
There’s a reason she is where she is.

CBR interviewed Tom Taylor about starting his run on Earth 2. Here is what he had to say about Doctor Fate.

Another character that I like is Khalid Ben-Hassin, the Doctor Fate of Earth 2. I was watching to see what you did, and you swiftly allowed Superman to open up a can of whoop ass on him — and he turns into a babbling mess. Are there some clues within his gibberish of what’s to come, or was he truly just babbling nonsense?
Absolutely, yes. There really is. He’s not just rambling. Sometimes he might be, sometimes he won’t be, but a lot of those words are going to have some meaning moving forward — some soon, some much, much, much later.
We had to do that to him. For me, it’s a bit of a short-hand. Superman’s vulnerability is magic. It made sense to me for Superman to come back and immediately, the first thing he does, is stomp on the head of the magic user, repeatedly.

Crave Online spoke with Nicola Scott about her work on Earth 2 at NYCC. She explained how her and James Robinson worked out the ending of James’ last issue.

NS: He said “I think we should really devastate Steppenwolf, but if you want to keep him around, that’s up to you.” “I think we shouldn’t kill Green Lantern, but if you want to kill him, that’s up to you.” He really left things open. So Tom and I and the editor got to discuss really what we wanted to do and how we were going to do it. We were all in agreement to get rid of Steppenwolf, but we had to figure out how to do it. He’s been lurking in the shadows for a year and half, and this was his big moment. He kind of won, at least until the last panel. Tom and I did that panel and we knew he couldn’t just be a body on the ground, he’s a New God. So we decided to hit him with everything, split him in two, and his body will cause a massive chasm in the planet. Let’s just wipe Russia off the map.

CBR interviewed Tom Taylor about his plans for Earth 2 and has a look at Ethan Van Sciver’s cover for issue #17. By the way Tom talks it sounds like we won’t be left wanting any action or drama when takes over.

Have you been following James and Nicola’s current run on “Earth 2?”
Absolutely. There are people who haven’t been? Present them to me. I will show them the error of their ways.
[Laughs] What is it about the series that you think has resonated with readers like yourself and is that something you hope to continue and emulate or will your run come with a new direction?
I think it’s that blend of old characters made new, along with the uncertainty of everything. The big three are dead. No one is safe here. No one knows what will happen next. You could be settling in with a group of characters that you completely love, and then suddenly someone comes along and George R.R. Martin-s up the place

Go read the full interview . I can’t wait to see what he has in store for the Earth 2 cast.

CBR talked to Greg Pak about his work on Batman/Superman, Action Comics, and his three “Villains Month” one-shots (General Zod, Doomsday, and Darkseid). Here is what he had to say about Justice League #23.1: Darkseid.

CBR: You’ve also got the opportunity to take on Darkseid in “Justice League” #23.1, where it’s rumored Superman features prominently. How does it explore what readers know about Darkseid from his first New 52 appearance in the opening arc of “Justice League?”
Greg Pak: You’ll get the background from Darkseid’s POV of the events that lead up to his invasion of Earth in the opening arc of “Justice League.” We’ll also get some more background on his invasion of Earth 2. And we’ll leave you with a shocking payoff that’s strongly Superman-related. I will say no more.
