PREVIEW: Worlds’ Finest, Vol. 1: The Lost Daughters of Earth 2

Out today in finer comic shops and in book stores next week, the first volume of Worlds’ Finest collects the New 52 exploits of Power Girl and Huntress. Once the Supergirl and Robin of Earth 2, Karen and Helena find themselves stranded in another reality, a universe where Superman, Wonder Woman and Batman are still very much alive, and their own superhero identities are already filled by other people (in Helena’s case, by a number of teen boys). No time for culture shock. It’s time for new names, new looks and new adventures in the New 52.

Paul Levitz chronicles the milestone moments from the first five years in their  new roles as Power Girl and Huntress, otherwise known as the World’s Finest!

Comments

  1. Started with great promise but never really came together. It’s a real shame. One of the books I was most looking forward to when announced.

    This is a completely directionless book. I like these characters and even I have lost interest in it.

  3. Anville Anville says:

    Worlds’ Finest, not World’s Finest. Don’t belittle them!

  4. Metamorphic Metamorphic says:

    I find it a fun read. It may not be my favourite, but I enjoy it every month. That’s all I ask of my comics, really.

  5. Jaedence says:

    I really enjoy this book. A very long time ago “World’s Finest” used to be about the friendship between Batman and Superman. This mirrors that feeling and partnership so well.

    One of the better series out there. I thought the pre-52 Power Girl series was better but I still enjoy this series. No big storylines or universe threatening villians.

    I thought the issue with Damian Wayne and Huntress teaming up was great especially considering what happen to Damian now. The best reason to pick up this series is that the story archs don’t normally range 4-6 issues like most series these days. Nice compact stories and reminds me of the Power Girl and Huntress pre crisis.
