Tom Taylor, writer of DC's Injustice: Gods Among Us series will be taking over writer of the Earth 2 ongoing series as of October's issue #17, following original writer James Robinson's recently announced departure from the series and DC Comics overall . Taylor will join artist Nicola Scott, who will remain with the series.
The following are statements DC provided to MTV Geek Monday morning.
"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!” - 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." -Tom Taylor
