The follow-up to the NEW YORK TIMES #1 bestselling graphic novels SUPERMAN: EARTH ONE VOL. 1 and 2 is here! Written by J. Michael Straczynski with art by Ardian Syaf (BATGIRL), SUPERMAN: EARTH ONE VOL. 3 follows a young Clark Kent as he continues his journey toward becoming the World's Greatest Super Hero. After defeating villains terrestrial and beyond, Superman faces a threat that he can't simply outmuscle. A threat smarter, more cunning and deadly than he can imagine: the Luthors!

These two books aren't out untill 2015, but the covers are looking pretty good. If you can't wait till next year to get your Earth One fix, 'Teen Titans: Earth One, Volume One' will be out this November.

My first article guys, be gentle! I've noticed a mistake in the teen titans title, should be Volume One
DCGuy - 8/9/2014, 4:13 PM
Nice. good job
HurricaneXavier - 8/9/2014, 4:14 PM
I would say your first article is better than every article some people post. Good job.
CerealKiller - 8/9/2014, 4:17 PM
Thanks very much guys! Still a few things I may add, but on the whole, glad you liked it :)

Decent books, to bad they take FOREVER to be released... Isn't Riddler suppose to be the main bad in Batman volume 2?
CerealKiller - 8/9/2014, 4:24 PM

I think it's Killer Croc :)
Niklander - 8/9/2014, 4:27 PM
I like Earth One so bring it
SidDaAstroSloth - 8/9/2014, 4:28 PM
I loved Batman Earth One. Its was such a cool reimagining of the character.

I havent read the Superman one. Iheard Vol 1 is great but 2 sucked donkey balls.
CerealKiller - 8/9/2014, 4:29 PM

Did you like alfreds portrayal in earth one?
SidDaAstroSloth - 8/9/2014, 4:33 PM

I did actually. Its not better than the one we normally have but it gave the character a new boost. He isnt just there to make a snarky remark and patch Bruce up anymore.

It is so different and refreshing to see him this way but it took a bit for me to warm up to him though
SidDaAstroSloth - 8/9/2014, 4:34 PM
Also "The Birthday Boy" is one of the creepiest Batman villians ive ever seen.

He should be used in the main universe
CerealKiller - 8/9/2014, 4:36 PM

I've heard that the Alfred in the 'Gotham' tv show is a lot like earth one alfred, which should be interesting!
SidDaAstroSloth - 8/9/2014, 4:39 PM

I heard the same but in the review i saw they made him alot colder. Something like he yells at Bruce for crying about his parents death or something like that...

Iam very excited for GOTHAM but that really turns me off.
Klone - 8/9/2014, 4:51 PM
Superman looks like a serial killer with a trophy.
TonyChu - 8/9/2014, 4:53 PM
The Earth One Alfred is badass. He even took out the Penguin by himself. Not to mention he has a prothestic leg.
DarkGrifter - 8/9/2014, 4:55 PM
Still waiting on that Earth One Wonder Woman, Morrison.
CerealKiller - 8/9/2014, 4:57 PM

You and me both buddy
thebearjew - 8/9/2014, 5:16 PM
garry frank's awesome wish he'd done earth one superman aswell

The14thAvenger - 8/9/2014, 5:44 PM
could someone please expalain or (link me to a website)the whole 52 universe and different earth's concept. because I love the idea but just get confused when it comes to continuity and different incarnations of characters
Klone - 8/9/2014, 5:46 PM

Unfortunately that's been warped into some stupid sounding "Trial of Princess Diana" or some shit.
nikgrid - 8/9/2014, 5:48 PM
Both of the Earth one stories have been excellent!
AnthonyLantern - 8/9/2014, 5:48 PM
Love both of those covers
GuardianAngel - 8/9/2014, 5:52 PM
Loved Earth One! I was very intrigued by the idea of an imperfect Batman and the fact that he still has things to learn.

ekrolo2 - 8/9/2014, 5:59 PM

Earth one is basically DC Ultimate except its released in big novel sized stories instead of monthly on going, in multiverse placement its right after the main N52 earth though its ignored so new readers dont get confused with cross overs with other universes
HarveyBollocks - 8/9/2014, 6:01 PM
Love the covers. Enjoy these little series, interesting take on each hero and it allows some elasticity in canonical events. Plus Alfred is hard AF.
ekrolo2 - 8/9/2014, 6:05 PM

The tittle got changed back to WW: Earth One.
Greyearth - 8/9/2014, 6:05 PM

Look at the building lights in the background. Should answer your question.
AnthonyLantern - 8/9/2014, 8:13 PM
I loved Superman Earth One, so I can't wait for Vol 3
dracula - 8/10/2014, 12:21 AM
are these set in the original universe before the new 52
TheGodButcher - 8/10/2014, 1:20 AM
Nice Article Cereal Killer.
Alphadog - 8/10/2014, 1:44 AM
@bluedude What are you talking about, the artist on Superman Earth One is amazing. And his art inspires hope like it's supposed to.
Alphadog - 8/10/2014, 1:49 AM
@dracula The first one of these was published before the new 52 but all the books are set in a new universe that didn't change with the new 52. It's a very different universe from the other books. It's uncertain though if they're all set in the same universe. In Sueprman Earth One volume 2 there's a background shot of Batman Earth One in a paper but the Teen Titans series that's coming seems to not be in the same universe as the others so they might not all be in the same universe.
CerealKiller - 8/10/2014, 2:05 AM

Cheers buddy! :)

I didn't like supes first earth one and am hesitant to give the rest a go. I just don't think it really gave anything new to the method that we haven't seen before or hasn't been done better.
