Love this series and the wild abandon they can let loose on this Earth that they can't the main one.

I still prefer Injustice.

The farther away you get from editorial the better your book generally is these days. Plus Wonder Woman only has a few issues left, which is really too bad.

I agree on both these counts, but that seems to be what makes WW so damn good...it really feels like it's actually Azzarello's baby, rather than something editorial forced on "writer X" to churn out. it seems like an entirely different character/universe than the WW, etc running around the rest of the DCnU.

Earth 2 #22 - seemed like a fast read but I think many of the titles this week got cut back to 20 pages due to that lengthy Detective Comics #30 preview they all have. Regardless, Taylor kept the action moving with many things happening this issue, most of it centering around Hawkgirl, Red Tornado and Val being ambushed by parademons and Superman:

[Reveal] Spoiler: Click to Expand
- Val's full name is Val-Zod !
- Hawkgirl's left wing is maimed. These are real wings so short of some magic-healing I wonder what the recovery time, if even possible, will be.
- Lois confronts Superman as her identity seems to shock him back to his real self.

- I translated Val's comment as Superman attacks: "No! Please ..."
