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.
