DC has announced that Superman & Lois, along with other characters from the ‘Arrowverse’, are set to crossover in a brand new comic book event titled ‘Earth-Prime’.
‘Earth-Prime’ is a six issue event starting on 5th April, that spans over three months. The first five issues will focus on a different character from the ‘Arrowverse’ with the final issue being a complete crossover. To make this event seamless the writers, actors and show runners from each show will be involved and it’s safe to say I cannot wait.
It has been confirmed that the second issue will focus on Superman & Lois, whilst the first issue will focus on Batwoman. Earth-Prime #2 (the Superman & Lois issue) will see the pair celebrate their first wedding anniversary, but their careers get in the way, Superman has to take on the responsibility as a superhero, whilst Lois has to get to the bottom of the truth!
It is confirmed that we will also see more of the origin of the Evil Superman variant from Earth-TUD22 that was introduced in the first series. I’m very excited to get to know more about him and what his particular story is and what a great way to explore tangents like this from the series… in comics! I’m so glad that this version of Superman & Lois are in comics, I hope this is a sign of more crossovers to come.
The creative team behind this issue are sure to do a great job! The issue will be written by Adam Mallinger, Jai Jamison and Andrew Wong, with Tom Grummet on the artwork and Norm Rapmund on the inking.
Here’s a look at the cover for Earth-Prime #2, which is by Kim Jacinto :
Earth-Prime #2 is set for release on 19th April and is available to pre-order NOW from your local comic shop. I cannot wait to see Superman & Lois in comics!
