Earth Prime #1 (Batwoman) The Nerdy Basement

DC Comics ‘Earth Prime’ Crossover Comic Brings The CW’s DC Heroes To Comic Book Format


‘Earth Prime’ Comic Book Crossover Event Will Be Official Cannon In The CW’s Arrowverse

DC Comics has announced an all-new comic book crossover series titled ‘Earth Prime’ featuring The CW’s Arrowverse heroes. The series will also be official canon in The CW’s Arroverse universe. This wouldn’t be the first time The CW fully crosses over with DC Comics as Batwoman’s Ryan Wilder made her comic book debut prior to making her live-action debut in Batwoman Season 2, played by Javicia Leslie.

In DC Comics ‘Earth Prime’, the six-issue series will see the creative minds behind The CW’s hottest DC superhero shows bring their talents and the characters they’ve made so popular to comic books in a can’t-miss comic book event! All issues are part of the Warner Bros. Television show canon, approved by CW television show producers. Each of the first five issues spotlights a different CW/DC superhero show, with the sixth issue serving as a crossover finale.

Earth-Prime launches with ‘Earth-Prime #1’ with Javicia Leslie’s Ryan Wilder/Batwoman. Ryan Wilder makes her first-ever costumed comic book debut as Batwoman in a story co-written by series writers Natalie Abrams and Kelley Larson, plus series cast member Camrus Johnson (who portrays Luke Fox/Batwing in ‘Batwoman’), with art by Clayton Henry.

Ever since the tech that created many of Batman’s rogues hit the streets, Ryan Wilder has been running herself ragged trying to contain the new villains popping up around Gotham City. But when Clayface’s (making his CW debut) mud binds itself to a local high schooler, Batwoman will need help from an unexpected source to contain this muddy foe! Also, follow how Luke Fox balances his life as a superhero and a boyfriend!

Earth-Prime #2 follows Clark Kent and Lois Lane as seen in The CW’s ‘Superman & Lois’. Series writers Adam Mallinger, Jai Jamison, and Andrew Wong join DC fan-favorite artists Tom Grummett and Norm Rapmund in a story spotlighting Clark Kent and Lois Lane’s first anniversary. Trying to celebrate their marital bliss is never easy when you’re a superhero husband and news reporter wife; especially when world-saving and creating hard-hitting stories continue to spoil your plans! Plus, the true origins of the evil Superman from John Henry Irons’ world are finally revealed!

Both issues feature cover art by Kim Jacinto and will feature photo variant covers based on each individual show. Subsequent issues will spotlight The CW television shows DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, DC’s Stargirl, and The Flash, all written or co-written by creative talent from the shows. Each issue will also include bonus material created by cast members of The CW shows, as well as “teasers” that will provide clues to the nature of the final crossover in issue #6.

EARTH-PRIME #1, Featuring The CW’s Batwoman, in Comic Book Shops and Digital Platforms April 5, with EARTH-PRIME #2, Featuring The CW’s Superman & Lois, in Comic Book Shops and Digital Platforms April 19.
