DC Announces Earth 2: World’s End Weekly Series

In February, DC Entertainment Co-Publisher Dan DiDio said “We are going to have another weekly series kicking off in October that will be set in the current DCU timeline that will have direct implications on what’s happening with the five years later storyline. And you’ll see a level of connectivity that I think will help really bring into focus where we see the future of the DCU heading.”

DC Comics has announced this year’s third weekly series–Earth 2: World’s End. Launching in October 2014, Earth 2: World’s End will be written by Daniel H. Wilson, Tom Taylor, Paul Levitz, Marguerite Bennet, and Mike Johnson and will feature art by Eddy Barrows, Jorge Jimenez, Stephen Segovia, Paulo Siqeira, and Tyler Kirkham.

As Earth 2 burns under the fires and fury of Apokolips, the planet’s few heroes unite to wage a futile war for survival against a dark god of unimaginable and unmatched power.

Dave Dorman’s Wasted Lands Comes to Print Courtesy of Magnetic Press

We’re breaking the news that Magnetic Press  will be bringing works collected from Eisner and Inkpot Award-winning painter and storyteller Dave Dorman’s Wasted Lands universe. The hardcover collection will be released in July as Dave Dorman’s Wasted Lands Omnibus.

The book will contain a recolored and re-lettered version of the first installment in the Rail graphic novel series, along with other short sequential tales, illustrated prose novellas, and a plethora of gorgeous concept and character art. Out-of-print original works, previously published in Penthouse Magazine and A-1, will be remastered and supplemented with all-new material to create a comprehensive ‘source book’ for the world. The series is set within Dorman’s original, dystopian universe, a place where the unbridled greed and ambition of a select few combine with out-of-control technology and the supernatural to bring the world to the brink of destruction.

The Wasted Lands universe will soon expand to include rich, online content, card games, and tabletop gaming.

For those unfamiliar the series is inspired by the high-adventure serials of the ’40s and ’50s and the Spaghetti Westerns of the 1960s, but infused with a contemporary sci-fi, “dieselpunk” aesthetic. This collection contains the stories of an intertwined cast of characters and villains, all seeking sanctuary, fortune, truth, and glory in this desperate time. Each of the standalone shorts contained in the collection share underlying plotlines and continuity relationships, building a much larger picture of this epic landscape. With contributions from other celebrated artists, such as Christopher Moeller, Durwin Talon, and Jon Foster, this volume will draw the reader into a world they won’t want to leave.
