    Weird Science - Eric Shea Jan 28, 2015

    I was actually shocked that when I finished this issue that I didn't hate it.  At this point I figured the writers had just given up and I was about there myself.  This issue though gave me a moment of hope that everything that's been awful in this series could be turned around.  I'll stay optimistic and say that if you haven't given up on this book yet, give it a few more issues.  I only wish that the art was as strong here as it was last week because I might have actually considered believing in miracles....... Yeah, I'm hyping this issue up and I don't want you to think that this issue will blow you away but after having the issues that we've had, almost anything would have been an improvement.

    There comes a moment in the process of death when the journey becomes irreversible. It's usually hard to pinpoint exactly where that is until it's already past, but usually there is little mistaking it once it arrives. And, of course, in the world of comics, nothing is ever truly irreversible, perhaps especially death. But, still, if Earth 2 were a dying patient, the sound of its breathing would not augur well for surviving through the night. Read Full Review

    It's hard to feel invested in a series that's close to an ending you already know and whose outcome doesn't seem to matter in the long run of the DC Universe. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Sean Buckley Jan 30, 2015

    Over halfway through the series' run, characters are still being introduced and new plot lines are still being formed. There's two months left and still there's no sign of the endgame in sight. After two above-average entries to World's End, this issue is a major downturn with its weak art and lack of direction behind its story. Read Full Review
