For this week’s installment of Preview Monday, we’re giving you exclusive first looks at EARTH 2 #5 and FAIREST #8.

 

The fate of Earth 2 hangs in the balance as Hawkgirl, The Flash and The Atom take on Grundy … and each other! Will they be able to cooperate long enough to stop Grundy from destroying the Earth? Meanwhile, The Green Lantern travels deep into the matrix of The Grey, leaving his physical body behind and vulnerable to attack. Once in The Grey, he is faced with a heart-wrenching choice that will affect the entire Earth! Written by James Robinson and illustrated by Nicola Scott and Trevor Scott, EARTH 2 #5 goes on sale this Wednesday. Click here to see an exclusive preview of the issue.

 

Meanwhile, FAIREST #8 kicks off the all-new story arc, “The Hidden Kingdom.” While getting her hair cut, Rapunzel is attacked by a flock of origami cranes with one simple message scrawled in Japanese on them: “Your Children.” Defying the orders of Snow White and Sheriff Bigby, Rapunzel sets off to Tokyo with her hairdresser and Jack of Fables to find her children. But someone is waiting for them there and it’s not going to be pretty when they meet! FAIREST #8 comes to you from 2011 Arthur C. Clarke Award-winning writer Lauren Beukes and artist Inaki Miranda.
