Comics this week

Earth 2 #7- The title of this series is “Earth 2” and writer James Robinson is slowly but surely showing why. Although anchored by new version of the old JSA, Robinson’s vision is ultimately greater than that. Outside a small interlude between Green Lantern and Hawkgirl, the issue focus mainly on the conflict within the World Army. Not only does this give the series a bigger stage, it also gave the issue a Secret Warrior/SHIELD feel. This is especially the case when Amar Singh roped in The Sandman for some espionage action against Sloan. Personally I enjoy this issue a lot. The new development gave the series a totally new set of conflict within the same world as Alan Scott and Jay Garrick and more importantly, it gave the series the potential of new storylines that goes well beyond the regular superhero fare we seen so far. It’s ambitious, daring, and Robinson has shown that he’s not afraid to ruffle a few feathers. Pick this series up.
