Comics this week

Earth 2 Annual- When James Robinson introduced the new Batman of Earth 2, there was always a sneaky suspicion that he did it due to editorial pressure. That may be the reason but I have to say Tom Taylor took the idea and just ran with it. This annual showed the origin of the new Batman and it was interesting to say the least. Not only that, Taylor even managed to sneak in a mention of Hourman. I especially liked that because the original idea of Earth 2 was to have a world without the Trinity of Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman. It may be Hourman in a Batman suit, but it doesn't change the fact it was a great idea. 

The Green Team: Teen Trillionaires #8- After seven issues of so-so writing and art, #8 showed the wasted potential of Green Team. This issue finally managed to show the potential of the team and this was without question the best issue of the series. The end of the issue even managed to show the fun of being a teenage trillionaire again! If only the fun aspect of the series had been showed throughout the series.
