Preview Monday: EARTH 2 #29 and THE NAMES #4

By Clark Bull Monday, December 1st, 2014

Welcome back for another installment of Preview Monday! This week, we’re giving you exclusive first looks at EARTH 2 #29 and THE NAMES #4.

First, in EARTH 2 #29, the displaced masses taking shelter in Chicago run for their lives when an unbelievable force descends on the city. Scattered and frantic, Barbara and Dick Grayson hunt for shelter and find a safe haven that hides a sinister secret. Will the two make it out alive with their son? Or will Barbara Grayson be among the first casualties in the war on Earth 2? Written by Marguerite Bennett & Mike Johnson and illustrated by Andy Smith & Trevor Scott, EARTH 2 #29 is on sale this Wednesday.

Then, things seemed to be looking up for Katya and her stepson Philip’s quest to discover who killed Katya’s husband – but now the arrival of the Surgeon in THE NAMES #4 complicates matters. Katya discovers the truth about the Surgeon’s origins, Philip reveals a truth that could cause difficulties in his relationship with Katya, and the Dark Loops make a move. But whose side are the Dark Loops on? Look for THE NAMES #4, written by Peter Milligan and illustrated by Leandro Fernandez, when it hits shelves on Wednesday.
