And Then I Read: THE WRONG EARTH #3

The biggest criminal villain on each of the two Earths in this series is called Number One. His primary sidekick is Deuce, seen above, the one from Earth-Alpha, the “nice” Earth. She’s one of the few people who have figured out what happened, and is trying to turn that knowledge to her advantage. Meanwhile, each of the Heroes, Dragonfly from grim Earth and Dragonflyman from fun Earth, are trying to adjust to their new switched worlds, with mixed results. One is too violent, the other too lenient and tender-hearted for their new roles. We haven’t seen much yet of the main villains, but it looks like that’s coming up soon.

The backup “Stinger” story is from the fun Earth, and it’s quite a funny story about a Sidekick Museum, and who gets celebrated there. The art is straight from old newsprint comics, nicely done. The three backup text features are worth reading, too.
