The war with Apokolips is over, but that doesn’t mean the hardship has ended in DC’s new series, Earth 2: Society. The first issue opens with an off-world Batman—and another masked man who calls himself Johnny Sorrow—chasing Terry Sloan, the man who designed (and then crashed) the space fleet that saved humanity during the war. But what is Sloan so terrified of? Why is he so vital? And will Batman, Mister Terrific, Huntress, and the other heroes be able to maintain order and safety on this new world?

Let’s just start with thisif you haven’t been following the events of DC’s Earth 2 story arc to date, you’re likely to feel adrift if you pick up with Society and have no background on the war and events that have lead up to it. The new saga picks up where Earth 2 and Earth 2: World’s End concluded, and there is a lot of information one should bring to the series. Otherwise, readers will be in well over their heads, with no foundation upon which to digest the new material. That preface aside, fans who are up to speed are likely to find writer Daniel H. Wilson’s new series an engaging follow-up to past events.

Earth 2: Society #1 is rife with action. Myriad storylines, some seemingly quite disparateand others even chronologically displacedprovide for rapid-fire fight sequences and compelling quests. The heroes might look different, but DC’s familiar scope and adrenaline-inducing panels remain the same. (
