    Though very different from any issue in the series before it, Earth 2 #28 manages to be one of the best of the series so far. It's also not often we get to see “done-in-one” issues much these days, and this one pulls it off great, proving it's still possible to hit a grand-slam with the format. Read Full Review

    In some ways Earth 2 remains superior to its weekly cousin, as it manages to stay more focused and more visually engaging. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Sean Buckley Nov 6, 2014

    Some interesting backstories give new life to common characters, isn't that one of the major appeals of Earth 2? This book is full of it, along with quality artwork and provides a pause from the chaos that is going on in Earth 2: World's End. Read Full Review

    Meanwhile, even though the series has been downgrade to a supporting role, the art reminds better and more focus than the weekly series. I've always like the art of the series, and the various artist have done a great job keeping the style consistent. A great issue with great origin stories. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Nov 5, 2014

    While I'm a sucker for a good origin story, I found that using this title to tell the Furies of Apokolips' origin was a bit of waste.  It could just be that I'm a bit biased since this is my favorite title and I kind of wanted it to do it's own thing instead of becoming the backup to World's End.  Even with my complaints, these stories were fun and having different artists to tell each story actually benefited this issue.  The star for me is Diogenes Neves and Marc Deerings final story.  It just out shined the rest of the art in this book and even if you're not a fan of this book you should check out that section of the book.   Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Henry Varona Nov 12, 2014

    Artistically, the book is split into four parts, which a different creative team tackling each story. Where the main Earth 2: World's End book fails to credit each team for their work, DC is wise to tell us who tackles what here. As such, I can tell you that I really liked the art of Alisson Borges, who I had never seen before. Her work is clean and looks like Wes Craig meets Jae Lee. I particularly enjoy her thin inking style. For his part, Andy Smith does great work, making Mongul look awesome and Famine disgusting. Unfortunately, the work of Javier Fernandez and Diogenes Neves is just alright, providing pictures for the words, but failing to really captivate. They also suffer from having weaker content to adapt, so the fault is not entirely theirs. Read Full Review

    “Earth 2″ #28 might not be as edge of your seat as the last arc was but it does matter in the bigger sense of the series. I liked finding out about how the Furies came to be. The ending reveal about Death matters tremendously and I am anticipating that birth. Read Full Review

    While many people will write this off as a fill in issue, I would call it an attempt at world building. It's nearly obtained that goal but falls just short when you realize what the point of this issue was. Read Full Review

    If you've been reading World's End, this issue gives you the background of all the Furies. Not an essential read but it was interesting. I'm curious about whether or not Darkseid will star in next year's DC's event. You have Godhead and World's End all hinting at a plot to fight against Darkseid. Although the Justice League of Earth 1 or is it Earth Prime? have stopped Darkseid before, you can just tell there's a story waiting where he's bigger and badder and is ready to devastate the Justice League again. Regardless, Earth 2 is still one of DC's better titles and has been consistently good in both art and story.

    Just the origin of Furies. Pointless.
