DC's third weekly series will presumably spin out of the Five Years Later September event.
DC announced Earth 2: World's End, another weekly series, which will be released in October. Earth 2: World's End will run at the same time as Batman: Eternal and The New 52: Future's End, DC's two other weekly books. Earth 2: World's End will be written by a writing team consisting of Daniel H. Wilson, Tom Taylor, Paul Levitz, Marguerite Bennet, and Mike Johnson and drawn by a rotating artistic team of Eddy Barrows, Jorge Jimenez, Stephen Segovia, Paulo Siqeira, and Tyler Kirkham.
Details about the book are sparse, as in DC announced no plot details about the book besides its name and a promo piece of artwork. No word on whether this will effect the monthly Earth 2 book yet either, but I'm guessing we'll get more details this weekend at WonderCon.
I can't comment on the quality of the series or its creative team, but I think DC is really testing the market with three weekly series. I'm worried that they'll flood the market with these books, and kill off the weekly series concept before it really gets legs again. Then again, I've generally enjoyed Batman: Eternal thus far, so what do I know? Check out the first promo art below.
