    Batman-News - Sean Buckley Apr 5, 2015

    Overall: I didn't call this an "epic conclusion" for sensationalist reasons. This issue is truly epic, and was such a joy to read that I went through it three times before writing this. Although the artwork falters in the latter half, and there are some rushed character arcs that should have been taken care of way earlier than now, I suggest anyone who's read Earth 2 or World's End pick this up immediately. It was well worth it. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Eric Joseph Apr 1, 2015

    I applaud Daniel H. Wilson and company for delivering such a strong finale to a cosmic tale. Although the use of many artists in a single comic still felt jarring after 26 issues to this reader, I admit all involved did a fantastic job. Let's raise our glasses to survival. Read Full Review

    It's a cool and different enough ending that I want to see what happens next. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Apr 1, 2015

    Like the majority of this series, this ending is very lackluster.  It also feels like it's gone against a lot of the things that we've been told were going to happen with these characters in Futures End.  Now that could be for a reason and we'll get the answers to that in Earth 2: Society but with this being an over sized finale I just don't understand why the art and the story weren't as strong as they've been the past couple of weeks and I just find myself being disappointed.

    Comicosity - Matt Santori-Griffith Apr 1, 2015

    Like I said, its hard to look away, especially when something you love is whats laying underneath all that rubble. But the sight is not pleasant, and my true hope is that one worlds end leads to a better one tomorrow (or this June, as the case may be). Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Apr 2, 2015

    The pacing of Daniel H. Wilson's story is all over the place, and the eight pencilers on board certainly makes for a scattered read. Read Full Review

    I liked how Earth 2 started, years ago. I hate what happened along the way. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Apr 2, 2015

    Unfortunately, with such a vast array of creators chipping in to this title, it is nearly impossible to properly identify every creator's individual contributions, right down to the trio of colorists. There are some wildly imaginative drawings in this comic, but there are also some headscratchers and other distracting pieces. The final eight pages are such a collage of attempted money shots that all sense of storytelling disappears. It's unclear how the characters aboard the T.S.S. Endurance got there or what exactly happened to the other set of characters or if Alan Scott ever got to finish one activity. The big ideas and promise are there in "Earth 2: World's End" #26, but the vision was never given a true plan to follow for positive execution. Read Full Review

    Supes' soups Apr 2, 2015

    Merely passable. Between World's End and Future's End, I'm now officially skeptical of weeklies. You invest roughly 4X the amount of dollars per month into a story that often feels rushed with the too-many-cooks-in-the-kitchen syndrome. The art was decent and seeing Darkseid pummel Earth 2 heroes, I suppose is satisfying in some weird way (him getting pushed over like a chump in New 52 Justice League: Origins still makes me wonder how big of a threat is this guy when he gets his eyes poked out and ass handed to him in mere minutes against the JL of Earth Prime?). The ending was better than the god-awful ending of Future's End so here's hoping next week's Convergence ties things up. Well we already know our Earth 2 heroes make it since there's Earth 2: Society coming up, although I'm wondering if the current Thomas Wayne Batman hands over the mantle to a Bruce Wayne from one of the other worlds in the Multiverse. Eventually we're running into Darkseid Wars this summer in the regular JL book although I'm iffy on the time line because we know Hal is back still a Green Lantern although he's gone rogue in GL #40 and Supes is still wearing his regular costume prior to his Solar Flare power so I'm supper confused on how Darkseid Wars/ Anti-Monitor will fit in with all this. And an Owlman and pregnant Superwoman is still running around out there somewhere too.

    This was a crappy series. But when you think about this, why should you care for these characters?
