EARTH 2 #13

  1. It’s hard to get excited about this comic now that I know Robinson is leaving… *sad face*

    • How do you know it’s not gonna be good any more after he leaves? Why can’t you just appreciate it for what it is?

    • I’m not saying it couldn’t be amazing after he leaves but Robinson was planning for a very long run, which had me very excited. Now he’s just going to leave on some random issue and someone else will pick up the pieces.

      Hard to appreciate what you know won’t be a finished product.

    • I hope we find out who’s gonna take over soon, I think Robinson is on through #16, so maybe they’ll have an announcement by San Diego. I’m bummed too, but mostly I just hope whoever takes over keeps my interest.

    • The newer 52 – all dc books will be written by Scott Lobdell with a 10 year crossover involving all 52 titles.

      I’ll really miss Robinson on Earth 2, I loved that he was just left alone to build his own world. Hopefully whoever takes it over will do the title justice.

      Has there been any word if Nicola Scott will still be on this?

    • Seigel didn’t like how Superman became after he stopped writing it, but we wouldn’t recognise ol’Blue if he didn’t change. Point is, sometimes things just work out.

  2. It’s just disapppointing that, from what I’ve read, he had a long term plan that we will never get to read.

  3. I’m a GIANT James Robinson fan, the greatest comic ever written IMHO is Starman with Tony Harris, but I will give Earth 2 a chance after he leaves because I don’t shit on something until I give it a chance.

  4. Having fun with Earth 2, but that annual with Batman was kinda bland. Will see how the regular book keeps going.

  5. I’m really bummed that Robinson is leaving, but he has created a really cool cast and world, so it’ll take something really terrible for me to drop off this book.

  6. I can’t wait to see who Earth 2 Batman shoots in the head this issue.

  7. paul levitz would be the best choice.He created a lot of great earth 2 stuff back in the 70’s.I’m a big fan of that stuff.Might try to read Earth 2 again.Was there at the beginning,not so sure now.Hoping for a JSA thing.

    Looking forward to finding who this Captain Steel character is. I’ve never heard of him only started reading comics with the New 52.
    Also hoping that we get more Mr. Miracle.

    Interesting that it’s Matt Kindt and Paul Levitz writing the villains month issues. Is August Robinson’s last?

  9. I’ve given this title a chance because it’s usually getting good reviews but it’s jut not doing it for me. I’m going to have to drop it. The Earth 2 Batman in the Annual was pretty cool looking though.
