    Earth 2: World's End #5 pulls together all the storylines thus far and balances them perfectly. I suppose like a TV show, a weekly book takes a few issues to work out the kinks, and it feels like World's End is about to ramp up and become the ride I've been waiting for. The patience of Earth 2 fans should be paying off in spades soon enough. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Jordan Richards Nov 6, 2014

    All the characterization and dialogue works well and the artwork is appealing looking (it's also much better at feeling consistent from scene to scene). The one thing that felt silly though was that in one scene, it ended on a note that seemed like it was supposed to be a big shock or surprise. However, immediately in the next page, it turned out there wasn't anything to be surprised about and the characters making the shocked expression were just being overly dramatic. Read Full Review

    The story of Earth 2 has been one of DC's most compelling and it will more than likely be a big part of "Convergence". The time to stop ignoring this world has come. Get on board. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Eric Joseph Nov 12, 2014

    As some of the other heroes live by the credo of "sic vis pacem para bellum," Sloan reveals the Shackleton Assault Craft and Mr. Terrific unveils his Boom Spheres, which he claims can kill gods. Meanwhile, Dr. Fate, Flash, and Hawkgirl succeed in defeating Famine and the core group (Batman, Superman, Powergirl, and Red Tornado) become separated from Huntress, as we're left with the cliffhanger that Clark Kent may still be alive!

    We The Nerdy - Henry Varona Nov 12, 2014

    Overall, Earth 2: World's End shows a bit of fight in this issue. While the characters seem to better prepare themselves for the coming tomorrow, the book itself picks up and grabs me back in. The promise for further explorations of the Green and the Grey, along with more elemental avatars is enough to keep me interested. I still think that this book needs to find it's own voice, and until it does, it is going to go unnoticed by most readers. But there is plenty of time and potential in this series. Read Full Review

    Coupled with the constantly shifting art styles and generally loose quality to most of the pages, the execution of this book still leaves something to be desired at times. Still, there's a definite momentum even this early into World's End. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Nov 6, 2014

    So much going on, so little attention span.  DC's really jamming these issues with as much stuff as they can and with two titles now telling this story, I'd think they'd be able to focus on more individual characters at a time instead of throwing them overhand at our faces and saying "You're Welcome".  I don't know, maybe that's a little harsh, but as much as I want to get into this series.......... It's hard.  A ton of story a little at at time with a ton of artists doing their best to try and tell it.  It just doesn't seem like a winning combination.  Hopefully as the series progresses I'll get my wish and we'll see more of the heroes I love instead of a page or two snippet each week.  For what it's worth though, the ton of artist did do a fine job and I really didn't have a problem with anything I saw.  Good job you tons of artists you.

    The art here is not bad, as per usual, but it would give the book a more solid cohesiveness if it wasn't drastically switching art styles every two pages. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Sean Buckley Nov 7, 2014

    There's a lot of the same old problems, things I don't see being changed any time soon. This doesn't mean that they will just be accepted, but it's something readers of this book are going to have to live with. Half of this book was so freaking good, and half was so very bad. I was so torn reading this issue. Read Full Review

    The art in World's End has been consistently good. I am absolutely loving this weekly series, and it has way more action than its sister book, Future's End. The action is not all for the sake of action though, it advances the story and in this issue things get interesting as enemies become allies and a certain member of the Trinity that we thought was dead seems to be alive. Can't wait for next week's issue.

    Actually, both the story and the art were finally good. I can only hope the book manages to stay like this.

    Characters are generic and have no lasting impression
