Preview Monday: EARTH 2 #19 and FAIREST #22

By Alex Nagorski Monday, January 6th, 2014

Welcome back for another installment of Preview Monday! This week, we’re giving you exclusive first looks at EARTH 2 #19 and FAIREST #22.

First, in “The Dark Age”, Earth 2 is further torn apart as the Parademons of Apokolips arrive to usher in the next wave of terror. Earth 2 will soon be ready for Darkseid, unless Earth 2’s Dark Knight can find a way to stop evil Superman from turning Earth 2 into the New Apokolips! Has Terry Sloan left something behind that can be used against the invasion? What did Jimmy Olson see when he hacked Sloan’s personal files? EARTH 2 #19, written by Tom Taylor and illustrated by Nicola Scott and Robson Rocha and Trevor Scott and Oclair Albert, will be available in stores on Wednesday.

Then, in FAIREST #22, “Of Men and Mice” continues with part two: “Memories”. The story takes us back to Cinderella's fateful night at the Ball. The mice – transformed into coachmen – were there. So was Cindy. But who else was in attendance that night? And where will Cinderella’s search for answers about today’s rodent/mundy hybrids take her? Does the present appearance of the assassin-driven “mice men” connect deeper into Cindy’s past? Are the events of that night at the Ball – the night that defines Cinderella’s character – coming back to haunt her? Pick up your copy of FAIREST #22, written by Marc Andreyko and illustrated by Shawn McManus, when it hits shelves this Wednesday.
