First Look: EARTH 2 #5

Hawkgirl, The Flash and Green Lantern take on Solomon Grundy

We're pretty big fans of James Robinson and Nicola Scott's EARTH 2 series and we've been anxiously awaiting the moment where the characters that have been introduced finally come together in the fight against Grundy. If you've been reading the series you know that Robinson has been gradually bringing these characters together; taking the time to introduce them to one another and focus on their respective origins. Now, the characters will be given a chance to come together as a team so fight a common enemy and it won't be easy.

EARTH 2 #5

It’s the final showdown with GRUNDY!

The Green Lantern, Hawkgirl and The Flash take on Grundy and the military’s hero, The Atom! The Green Lantern makes a choice that will change the course of Earth 2 forever!

Written by: James Robinson

Pencilled by: Nicola Scott

Inked by: Trevor Scott

Cover by: Ivan Reis, Joe Prado

Variant Cover by: Ivan Reis

If you've been waiting for some action, then you're in for a real treat. EARTH 2 #5 is going to be all about action as Hawkgirl, The Flash and Green Lantern fight alongside one another in a crazy battle. Earlier DC posted a preview for the upcoming issue out this Wednesday. Let us know what you think of the preview and whether or not it's a book you'll be picking up this weekend.

OKAY Earth 2 officially has me interested!!! It's like a twisted Ultimate DCU

Posted by regrivett

DC needs to be getting more Earth 2 related titles going. This looks amazing. This is a New 52 success in my mind.

My favorite book in the New 52. I just want to see some constructs already.

Posted by ComicMan24

Have to say, if I ever start reading comics again, I am definitely checking this book. Btw that look on Jay's face when he sees GL, maybe a new romance in the making? ;) lol

Posted by Psycho_Soldier

I'd like more books on Earth 2 
 
BDSM Grundy seems quite strong and rational here

Posted by LordRequiem

This looks cool and I hope there'll be a volume of these issues or whatever. I quite like Alan Scott's costume but it is lacking one major thing in my view, an epic cape!

Posted by Ulfghuld

OMG, can't wait!!!

Posted by Lvenger

Awesome.

Posted by _jackbauer

Earth 2 is one of my favorite books these days. Easily best of 2nd wave New 52. In my top 5 new 52 (... thinking about it rq... yep)

Posted by Mucklefluga

Man when the Earth 2 & Earth (Prime is it?) crossover happens it is gonna be AWESOME!

Posted by SmashBrawler

Can Ivan Reis and Nicola Scott draw everything please?

Posted by LaserLambert

is his name just "Grundy"? not "Solomon Grundy"?

Posted by ArtisticNeedham

This book is great. I am glad its out soon.

Posted by evilvegeta74

Looks like Kyle Rayner's lantern symbol to me! Scott looks cool though.

Posted by JamDamage

this book is great. Looks like they're stepping up GL in terms of power.

Hal and Jay are certainly showing their 'assets' ;p

Earth 2 will probably be better in one book under one writer. That way different story arcs could focus on different characters in different parts of the universe, like Young Justice, but with the focus on all heroes instead of the young hereos and the occasional adult. If anything, it should only expand to two titles and Robinson should write both to keep it as cohesive as possible.

Great series and can't wait for this issue.

Posted by deadpool25mm

Still hate the fact that they made Scott gay. who knows what will be next in comics....

Posted by zackattack529

@deadpool25mm: Yaa, i kind of got over the fact that they did that...now what buggs me more than ever is, since his previous lover died...now who is going to become his new innnevitable boyfriend..i hope they don't turn another one of the JSA like jay, or the atom, gay so they could accommodate yet another controversial cash grab. "Like hey we support gay marriage too! " I hope alan stays single for a long time and if he does find love i hope it's just a normal character or not anyone major that was previously straight.....but I know james robinson will so no point in hoping

Posted by LaserLambert

Flash has come across as an idiot since the second issue. like slow in the head, no pun.

Posted by Video_Martian

Dunno why, but I'm strangely diggin' GL's, Flash's and Hawkgirl's costumes... :P

Posted by deadpool25mm

@zackattack529: Hhh lets hope they dont turn the Flash too , then he will be the fastest gay alive.

Posted by Miss_Garrick

NEAT! Hawkgirl looks AWESOME! Such a humongus improvement over the last couple of hawkgirls. Still not sure about Flash. Pre-52 Jay Garrick is my number 1 most favorite comic character of all, so I don't know about the changes to him. We'll see.

Posted by Barkley

@Aiden Cross: its not Hal its alan scott...just for future purposes

Posted by FoxxFireArt

Is that ARROW ad really going to be on the cover of that final comic, or is that just for the benefit of the preview? Ads on the cover are kind of gross.

Posted by GothamRed

is that alan, in kyle's costume?

you said it!

Posted by MadeinBangladesh

R they gonna add more charatcers to the book? Btw this book is good read.

Posted by riiiiiiiight

Dang I want to check this out sooooo bad! But then i'll just add it to my pull and, well, I can't really afford that with marvel now coming. And even with marvel now i can only choose a few titles. uuuuggghhhh

Posted by StarKiller809

The art looks fantastic. This series has been fairly good so far and I hope that this issue improves so we can start getting one of the best series of the New52

Posted by TitanTempest

Earth 2 = Awesome, I love the fact that they didn't want to use multiple heroes with the same name in one world. So they created an entire world for the other heroes to play around with. Their not bound by the logic, "Oh why isnt Superman here to stop this?" There is no Superman in this world so these heroes have to just rely on themselves

Posted by bladewolf

Great series! Though it looks like the art took a bit of a dip in this issue...

Posted by neiliusprime

can't wait to pick this up, love the series so far!

Posted by darth_jones

Really interested in this story!

Posted by TitanTempest

@jurrysnow: You should do it anyway lol, it really is a great book!!! You can always catch up to a Marvel Now story arc later... Do it! Do it! lol

Posted by GillaDro

Gonna have to check this one out.

Posted by ReadItNow

The art has been outstanding in every issue! It has been a great read so far really looking forward to this

Posted by Necrotic_Lycanthrope

I'm loving Grundy's necromancy abilities and thought processes. But who in the name of Cyrus Gold decided to make him into Pinhead's rape buddy?! That outfit makes me sick!

Posted by Fuchsia_Nightingale

The designs are good, art great, still on da fence, but Grundy may be enough

Posted by Metric_Outlaw

I love that last panel. I know some people have a problem with the art in this book but I love it. Probably my surprise hit of the New 52.

Posted by matchesmalone21

I love this Grundy!!!

Posted by Darkmount1

You know what I find funny? The way the Atom's head is drawn, he almost looks like Beachhead from GI Joe.

Posted by RedheadedAtrocitus

So looking forward to this! Ready to see these guys take on Grundy! Is it Wednesday yet??

Posted by modunhanul

Yeah! Alan VS. Grundy!
