GRAPHIC NOVEL REVIEW: EARTH 2

61s0evxczhl-_sx325_bo1204203200_

I have just read the first four volumes of DC Comics’ New 52 Earth 2 storyline and I am enjoying the series so far. It depicts how one generation of superheroes (Superman, Wonder Woman, and Batman) sacrificed themselves to save the world. Then their mantle is taken by a new generation of superheroes. I have witnessed the reimagined origin stories of classical superheroes such as The Flash/Jay Garrick, Green Lantern/Alan Scott, Hawkgirl/Kendra Saunders, and Doctor Fate among many others. In addition to presenting new versions of some of the classic heroes, Earth 2 also presented different versions of other heroes. For example, Red Tornado was Lois Lane instead of John Smith and Batman was Thomas Wayne instead of Bruce Wayne. Thomas Wayne, in particular, reminded me of the Flashpoint comics and proved to be a darker and more brutal Batman than his son Bruce Wayne ever was. Overall, this is proving to be a very interesting read and I would recommend it to anyone enjoys DC Comics and the general superhero genre.
