This issue was okay but honestly, I'm just waiting for it to end so we can get a proper Rebirth of the Earth 2 heroes and the classic JSA. Earth 2: Society is one of the last vestiges of New 52 and it's time is coming to a close. While Earth 2 was an amazing series when it first launched as a New 52 series, it's really taken a beating after the Convergence fiasco and I just want to see it laid out more

Earth 2: Society #20

By: Dan Abnett, Vicente Cifuentes
Released: Jan 11, 2017

On the streets of New Metropolis, the Wonders battle the army of Sandmen sent to destroy them. But on this reborn world, no one recognizes the heroes, and their presence sends the citizens into a panic. Behind the scenes, the identity of the world-ruling Director is revealed. And he has a secret weapon that's equally shocking. RATED T

Best issue so far but Pasarin's art is just not my thing. It's like a slightly sharper version of Hitch's art and if you know me, I hate Hitch's art... I will say that before reading this issue, this week's Suicide Squad tie-in is worth a read, it gives a pretty good picture of the dynamics of the early Suicide Squad with Lobo, Emerald Empress, Johnny Sorrow, and Polaris. We learn about the fallin more

I'm surprised how good this is. Definitely a sleeper hit. With this team, Jason Todd can actually go toe to toe with some of DC's heaviest hitters. Not saying I didn't enjoy the bromance between Arsenal and Hood but with this team, you feel like things are gonna get serious. And although Starfire potentially is as storng as Artemis, Artemis has the devil may care attitude which is different than t more

If you're looking forward to the upcoming JLA series, this one-shot should be on your to-read list. Vixen was definitely relegated to obscurity during New 52, which should've been a crime given the character's interesting background.

Nothing too surprising this issue, you knew the JL vs SS would eventually turn into a team-up. This is DC after all. Before reading this issue, I read this week's Justice League simply because I'm curious about Max Lord's background.

Rebirth is off to an incredible start and with issues like this, you realize there's something bigger at play in this universe slowly building up.

Batman has been wildly inconsistent in terms of storytelling since Snyder and Capullo left.
