    DC Comics News - Arthur Thomas Jr. May 27, 2013

    Once again this issue is not one to be missed, and as the end of the Tower of Fate arch it plays a big part in the story so far. The next arch is rumored to be James Robinson's last and with it I am expecting great things. This is a shining gem in the New 52 and it is only getting better. Read Full Review

    Comic Booked - Simon Peter Curran May 1, 2013

    The delivery of this series is great, the art is stunning, the pacing and characterisation are wonderfully natural. It doesn't feel like a chore getting through this story, it flows so well and doesn't seem that long ago when I first read issue number one. I look forward to this book every month, even more so than Invincible or Detective Comics which are right up there on my favourites list. Go and buy this book! If you are a new reader, the collected edition is now available which collects all issues from 0 to 6, a great place to start at an inexpensive price and it sets up the world perfectly for the box of fireworks this creative team is about to set off.

    Earth 2 continues to astound. It's easily one of the best New 52 titles going. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Sara 'Babs' Lima May 1, 2013

    The issue opens with a lot of momentum, as I mentioned above, and that's really necessary to engage readers (both old and new) into reading this story. The result, in general, is pretty good. You are given some interesting characters who share some really interesting and entertaining interactions, and you also have a moment where Green Lantern (who had been adamant against teaming up with the other heroes) step onto the scene in a way that was interesting. Still, I would have loved to see more to Hawkgirl. I would have also liked to see how Hawkgirl was able to cleverly deduce what happened to Alan Scott's former lover and I hope that is something that we get to see more of later on.This issue is also the first issue where these characters team up and work together towards a common goal, and it will certainly be interesting to see them further discover that they work better as one entity as opposed to alone.

    The Comic Book Revue - Jay Mattson May 2, 2013

    One of the best aspects of Earth 2 is the how easy James Robinson makes creating a world look. This isn't just a team book -- this title is about an entire separate universe. The changes and differences between the main DCnU and Earth 2 are important because they are there and the moer Robinson shows us, the better this series becomes. Read Full Review

    Entertainment Fuse - Sean Elks May 5, 2013

    "Tower of Fate" had its problems, but it gives us a good conclusion and a strong new take on Doctor Fate here. The Green Lantern side plot could have been better developed. Still, it pays off well enough and sets us up with a greater conflict coming next. Now that Doctor Fate has been introduced and Flash got his little hero moment, I'm looking forward to hopefully seeing other characters get the Earth 2 spotlight for awhile. Read Full Review

    And then Doctor Fate says his helmet has shown him a prophecy. But instead of saying what it is, he just tells everyone to turn on the television. Is that helmet a magical artifact or a TV antenna? Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Minhquan Nguyen May 8, 2013

    In terms of writing, this is something of a low point for the series, saved from complete scorn by Scott's artwork, but even that won't stave off your dissatisfaction for long. Read Full Review
