DC Comics has announced that starting in October with Earth 2 #27, Andy Smith will take over the art chores from Nicola Scott. The second announcement is that with that  same issue Marguerite Bennett joins Tom Taylor as writing partner. 

No further word on why Taylor and Bennett will be working as a team. In the past when this has happened, the initial Writer later left. If DC continues this trend then that could mean that eventually  Bennett would continue later as sole Writer. We'll keep you updated if more information on this becomes available.

Smith spoke highly of Nicola Smith's contributions to this title:

“I want to say a huge thank you to Nicola for everything she's brought to Earth 2 and for everything she leaves behind. Nic has spent years helping to shape an entire world and its heroes."

The folks over at ComicVine have an exclusive interview with Taylor and Smith that provides a bit more detail on their approach to the heroes of Earth 2.  Be sure to check it out here.

Below take a look at the cover to Earth 2 #27 by Gary Frank (courtesy of DC) which goes on sale October 8, 2014.

About the Author - IvCNuB4

IvCNuB4 likes to maintain an air of mystery by never publicly revealing his true name unless you are one of the four lucky Outhouse posters he has PM'd it to. A life-long Chicago native, he was introduced to comics by his older brother's vast collection of Silver Age issues. When he is not at his day job as an IT geek or making the most of Chicago's three months of incredible summer, he can found spending way too much time with his very large, very loud Italian family. You will never find him on the likes of Facebook or Twitter as he scoffs at the necessity of most forms of social media.
