    Overall I liked this issue a lot. I don't necessarily recommend this issue as a starting point for anyone who has yet to read the series, but I do believe it is a great issue overall. I think it presents a very interesting story and introduces us to new characters while expanding on things we have already seen in previous issues. The layout is really great and very organized, and Nicola Scott's pencils are incredibly detailed and very beautiful. There are some moments I felt could have been fleshed out a bit and some word balloons that could have been broken up and had more additional images to compliment them, but overall this was still a great issue.

    Over all, I enjoyed this issue a great deal. We're introduced to some interesting new characters and it also expands upon a lot of things from previous issues. It isn't a good jumping on point for new readers, but it doesn't really matter. If you haven't picked this comic up yet, chances are you're never going to. I, for one, am glad I've been reading it.

    Den Of Geek! - Marc Buxton Mar 9, 2013

    Sometimes this book tries to do too much in to short a space, and becomes muddled. Not this issue, as Earth 2 remains a bright, well executed, alternative look at the DC Universe. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Mar 12, 2013

    All in all, Earth-2 #10 is a strong issue, borne aloft on lovely art and free from at least some of the homogeny that is creeping into DC's increasingly angry and edgy comics output. Read Full Review

    This book wasn't perfect from the beginning. It's still not. But it's perfectly enjoyable and very easy on the eyes. Read Full Review

    The art by Nicola Scott is also consistent in that it always looks solid while managing to offer some pleasant surprises. The aforementioned scene of Alan cutting loose with his ring is as satisfying to see as it no doubt was for her to draw. The layout of the Tower of Fate looks like it could have caused her more than one sleepless night, but given the mesmerizing results, it certainly was worth it. Read Full Review

    Entertainment Fuse - Sean Elks Mar 9, 2013

    The first part of Earth 2's new Tower of Fate story arc is solid but nothing spectacular. It comes with a lot of explanation but not much entertainment. All hope is truly lost when you count on Flash to carry a story. Still, I am excited about Khalid Ben-Hassin, soon to be the new Dr. Fate. And the brewing team-up between Green Lantern and Hawkgirl is brief but overall a more effective beginning to a story. Read Full Review

    Robinson is aptly building his world, and clearly he's enjoying the clean slate he was handed to introduce the wonders. So far, the villains Robinson has introduced are less than stellar, and Wotan is another paltry bad guy. But the heroes of the story are carrying it, and Earth 2 is least interesting because of them.

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Minhquan Nguyen Mar 13, 2013

    It may be that curiosity and brilliant art alone are not enough to keep me invested in this second Earth. I desperately want to like this, but Robinson makes it harder and harder with each uninspired issue. Read Full Review
