Picked up Earth 2
today. Somewhat middling. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't anything groundbreaking either. It was really nothing but pure back story primarily focusing on characters that seemingly won't appear after this issue; something that would have been serviced better being in an annual or a 0 issue (like how Marvel use to do with their mini-series back in the later 90s/early 00s). Then again, perhaps that was the point.
There is something I'm a bit fuzzy on. Is Earth 2
an ongoing series? Or a limited series (like The Shade
). I've seen it called both from various sources.
