Tom Taylor Takes over Earth 2

The mind behind INJUSTICE: GODS AMONG US will soon write the popular DC title.

Well, it looks like writer Tom Taylor will now juggle two of DC's alternate universes! According to MTV Geek, the INJUSTICE: GODS AMONG US writer will jump on EARTH 2 after creator and writer James Robinson leaves with issue #16. Meanwhile, series artist Nicola Scott will remain on the title. Both Scott and Taylor provided MTV Geek with a few remarks.

"I've had so much fun working on Earth 2 with James Robinson over the last year. While I'm sad to see him go, I'm really looking forward to exploring the ever expanding mysteries of the title. I'm even more excited about moving forward on this journey with my great friend and fellow countryman Tom Taylor! Not only a charming guy but a great talent to boot. She continued, I can't wait for everyone to see what we have lined up!”

--EARTH 2 series artist Nicola Scott.

"I'm a big fan of what James and Nicola have created so far with Earth 2, and I'm honored to be adding to this world, with its rich characters and its many mysteries. Earth 2 is entering a new age, and I'm thrilled to usher in this new age with my good friend, and fellow Australian, Nicola Scott. It was good of DC Comics to give Australia our own Earth to play with. We'll try not to wreck the joint."
