    Geeked Out Nation - Ian Yoxon Oct 10, 2014

    All in all Earth 2 #27 was a fun issue worth reading. There was lots of action and gives readers an idea of what the relationships are to some of the characters in the series. Also it shows readers of Earth 2 that they should probably go and buy the weekly series just so they can keep up with what's going on. Read Full Review

So stay tuned for what appears to be a new force of flying fighters ready to give this troop a run for its money. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Oct 23, 2014

    Carrying on the tradition of Worlds' Finest, Earth 2 #27 has multiple artists splitting the work. Thankfully, the art meshes reasonably well in telling to story of the foursome's battle against an army of demons while focusing on reunions none of them ever expected. Once returned to their own Earth I had planned to turn my attentions elsewhere, but despite being stuck in a world I care little about this issue tempts me to continue sticking with Helena and Kara's adventures… at least for a little while longer. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Good Kind Of Geek - Nikki Yuan Oct 9, 2014

    The issue seems like the beginning of the end, and it's nice that it can end on a lighter tone. However, as of now, I have no idea where the series is taking us to next and that's bothersome to me. Well, at least we have the weekly Earth 2: World's End to ease the suspension. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Oct 9, 2014

    I usually hate multiple artists but this issue didn't suffer from it at all and I really enjoyed the story they conveyed here even if I'm not entirely sold on the idea that this was a story that needed to be told.  There's just so much Earth 2 going on this week that I'm not surprised that somethings don't mesh completely.  This is more of a character piece getting our Worlds' Finest duo back into their old world and seeing how they groove with the rest of the cast and while it's a bumpy start, I think they'll do just fine here in the Earth 2 title.  I love these characters and I can't wait to see what the creators have in store for us with this leg of the Earth 2 story.

    Multiversity Comics - Keith Dooley Oct 9, 2014

    "Earth 2" #27 is not unimportant filler next to the weekly. It enhances this world that began with the creative team of Robinson and Nicola Scott and fleshes out characters that have remained in good hands. This issue lends an overall sense of gravitas that is shared between the opening salvos of the "Worlds End" story in both this book and the weekly. Minor artistic quibbles aside (Marcus To's art appears rushed at times in his six pages), the art in this book befits a story where character is important to its success. With solid writing by Bennett and Taylor, Smith's pencils, and Pantazis' colors, readers can only hope that this team can continue bringing these characters to life in surprising and moving ways.

    Batman-News - Sean Buckley Oct 9, 2014

    A solid start to a new arc that acts more like an epilogue to the last few issues than a prologue to the next ones. Characters who we knew little about before are fleshed out in a well-written, though nearly clich, story. The action more than makes up for it, but the strength of this issue lies in its writing.

    Infinite Comix - Rob Kitchen Oct 15, 2014

    Overall, Earth 2 #27 manages to keep the quality of the series despite its odd change in status quo. Solid character work from Taylor and Bennett and artwork from Smith, Scott, To, Hanna and Pantazis keep the series something worth reading, especially for those who are reading Earth 2: World's End.

    Some nice steps forward for some of the newly formed relationships in the series, though not very well sold. Read Full Review
