I was glad to see a cover image for James Robinson's Earth Two series posted today on http://dcu.blog.dccomics.com/ but have to admit I am surprised to see it featuring Earth Two versions of the big three - Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman. I figured that they would concentrate more on the trio of Alan Scott, Jay Garrick and Ted Grant. It will be interesting to see if the big three will be a regular part of the series or perhaps killed off early on to serve as a motivation for the rest of Earth Two's heroes and a divergence point from the mainstream DCU. I am very glad to see Jerry Ordway getting regular work in the DC reboot, but I kind of wish he was on this Earth Two title... he is my favorite JSA artist, hands down.
This cover was tougher to do than I thought it would be. I figured it would be a simple matter of swapping out The Tarantula for Spider-Man, but repairing and replacing parts of the background spider web was a pain!
