Earth 2 is just awesome. I had lost interest in Robinson during his really iffy JLA run, though his Action Comics run seemed solid when I checked in on it from time to time. I think he's got his groove back on this book, which I associate most with his Golden Age mini. I'm getting a bit nervous with ANY DC book right now due to the creator exits, but I really hope this book continues on for a good long time.
I like WF much more than Earth 2. The PG/H dynamic is just fun and one of the few nostalgic moments in the Nu 52. Earth 2 is just totally Nu and different and doesn't touch that spot at all. Despite being Nu versions of Kara and Helena they have the same dynamic and I really enjoy that. Plus the flashbacks to Bat, Cat and young Hel are the moments I've enjoyed most in the Nu 52. Earth 2 has to be enjoyed as something completely new, but PG/Helena feel like a throwback thematically.
one of the things that kind of struck me when I got caught up on E2 was how it felt a lot like Straczynski's Supreme Power. both being, at their core, a reboot of the dcu...kind of. the ultimate differences, I will hope, will be that robinson will not quit in the middle of an arc and that robinson will continue to showcase his love for the superhero genre. don't get me wrong. I loved Supreme Power, but it just broke my heart to see straczynski not just leave that book, but to then go onto other superhero work and exhibit a bit of a distain for the genre. I mean seriously, having The Twelve's Rockman go from an awesome, fun sci-fi concept to a tragic union worker? by god. sorry, that just drove me nuts. also, sorry for the run-on sentence above. also, sorry for apologizing so much. sorry.
I also like both series however Earth 2 is the stronger one.
As for Peej and Huntress, I think they might be okay since they came to E-Prime through I believe a Boom Tube, technology far beyond Holt or Sloan.

I enjoy both as well. They are the last 2 comics I read.
I take it from the comments that I'm not the only one who read Robinson's comments and ignored Levitz's ones? WF is regrettably boring, like drills into my patience. If DC haven't lost Fialkov forever, put him here pleeeeeeease!
Looking for artists, know I won't find any. That blows.
Interested to see how all the little connections play out as we move forward. On its own, I don't know that I would be all that interested in Worlds' Finest beyond it having Power Girl in it, but the connections with Earth 2 are what really keep me coming back every month. I would actually prefer these books to stay in their own corner. I don't want to have to keep up with Justice League and all the Primer Earth baggage to keep reading about characters that I actually enjoy reading.
Writers before artists.
Artists before concepts.
Concepts before characters.
