The heroes of Earth-2 have been so focused on each other and rebuilding their world that they never worried about super-villainsand now, its too late!

    A wonderful book both to read and examine, this issue felt real in all the right places. While a few inconsistent characters lessen the overall impact of "Nexus," it is by far the best issue that has been put out by Earth 2: Society so far. Read Full Review

    Admittedly, there's a few hiccups in the execution here, with Jimenez's artwork sometimes getting too sketchy, or the page-to-page pacing sometimes jerking forward, but still, this book is one of the most fun DC titles on the stands. Read Full Review

    It's a struggle for this new Earth 2 series to gain any real momentum when each issue focuses on a small handful of characters and spends most of its time locked in the past. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd Sep 13, 2015

    All in all this issue continues to be a step in the right direction for this book. Its not quite there, but it seems like it has the chance. Wilson needs to find a likable character on which to focus. It seemed like he had found that character in Lois/Red Tornado last issue, but neither of those characters has historically sold a lot of comics beyond Supermans Girlfriend Lois Lane in the 50s.

    This issue of Earth 2 was rough to swallow, on a execution standpoint it was well done, mostly due to Jimenez on pencils. On a personal level seeing Val Zod's name strung the through the mud for something he had no connection to prior just feels lazy and seems to be a device to cause strife and drama within the team. I want to give Wilson a chance and see where he takes the series from here, but I'm not optimistic. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Sep 9, 2015

    The inconsistencies in this book are getting down right infuriating, especially since all the continuity is from the current writer.  Characters seem really off and ultimately all we get from this issue is a misunderstanding and a flashback that doesn't make sense.  The only thing that is really worthwhile is Jorge Jimenez's art and Alejandro Sanchez's colors.
