Sweet! Earth-2 Makes Hopefully Triumphant Return!


JSA Annual

I just saw this image and a post on Newsarama and my heart is singing. Justice Society of America Annual #1 is due out this summer and I couldn't be happier. I have been dying for the Earth-2 characters I loved so much when I was younger to return. This is my chance and I am giddy!

I am especially thrilled to see Huntress (Helena Wayne) and Fury (Lyta Trevor). Both were favorites of mine. Having Power Girl in the forefront only serves to sweeten the pot. The topping is having Jerry Ordway on art chores. In my opinion he is one of the most underrated artists in the business today. Hallelujah!!

Head over to Newsarama for the post and article. I am going to just sit here and revel in the moment.

Awe-some.

Heidi, your site was the first time I saw the teaser image, and I think my heart skipped a beat!

This is fantastically good news for an old fogey like me, who's missed Earth-2 since DC's trundled it off stage back in the 80's. Now, I fully understand this isn't necessarily the Earth-2 I remember, and that this could be part of a big fake-out, yada, yada, yada....but just on the beauty of the Alex Ross painting alone, I can't wait.

Wow...what a great "Friday treat"!

Swinebread, you are most likely right. It did give me a thrill though for a moment- I love those characters!

Mark, that was my initial reaction as well! I was so giddy when I saw the image! Good or bad, the creative team on this will do the job and give us the ride we want. I can't wait!
