I liked this latest issue...I've put on my Big Boy Pants and am just hoping for the best, that the next writer won't just screw us all over and ruin this.

I read Volume 1 of this series last night - very good read! :smt023

(minor complaint: can't they keep the details for Superman's & Wonder Woman's costumes consistent? They're only around for a few panels, yet the costumes vary from artist to artist... UGH.)

It isn't the real Earth 2. What's the point?
- Continuity is or it is not. There is no such thing as soft continuity.
- A character IS his continuity.
- Continuity is consistency of the characteristics of people, plot, objects, and places seen by the reader or viewer.

If you keep interest in a renewed concept going, there's more of a chance they will revisit the original.

If the renewed concept crashes and burns dramatically enough, it often brings about a return to the true concept more quickly.
- Continuity is or it is not. There is no such thing as soft continuity.

Or if a renewed concept crashes and burns, executives may fear the market has NO interest in the concept.
If Earth 2 sells well in trade format, DC/WB will maybe/hopefully/finally continue publishing their backlog of PCE2.
Infinity Inc. Volume 2 would finally get released! :smt026
