    Trippy, exciting and action packed, this issue was tightly paced and exciting all the way through. If you like a well told yarn that bends expectations, you've got to read this. Read Full Review

    I still think the Flash looks a bit crap, where's the Green Lantern? Why is the Sandman all weird"but oh my goodness the ideas are cool, the design is sleek (except the Flash, still crap) the story is cosmic but grounded, I like this Superman more than the other one and I'm giving very real thought to checking out the trades for this series despite it all going a bit crossover happy a while ago.

    I enjoyed that a lot more than I initially thought I would. I'm a stickler for the classics and variations on those classics have never been my thing. But with a gripping story just as lovable alter egos I will gladly say I'm a fan of Earth 2. The story was quick and clean and even just jumping in at #18 easy to follow. Even with white backgrounds the panels popped and the characters in them were well drawn and defined. I loved the dynamic between all the characters. Nothing better than a good ol' cliff hanger, and "come with me or you'll die" is one of the best. Again I am forced to go spend all my money on back issues because I've once again feel in love with a new title. Read Full Review

    I do not want to lose these characters. But I want the real JSA back as well. Dont let me down, DC, find a way to have both versions, in some fashion, in your reborn universe. Read Full Review

    This series seriously feels like it's trying its damnedest to right all the wrongs that we've suffered through Earth 2 over the years and I couldn't be happier about the progress it's making.  The story is compelling and the art is fantastic and for the first time in a long time, I find myself really willing to let my guard down so that I can maybe love this series again.

    Earth 2 was, as always, a good read. I'd recommend reading at least the previous two issues to have a clear understanding of what's happening here in this issue though. The issue is a great read, but not something meant to be read completely on its own. Abnett does a wonderful job writingheroes who are struggling not only to fight the good fight but just to rebuild a broken world, period. Read Full Review
