Captain Steel debuts as the World Army sends the hero into the Fire Pits left over from the war with Apocalypse, but even Earth 2s newest hero isnt ready for what is hidden within the burning reminders of the conflict that killed Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman.

    DC Comics News - Arthur Thomas Jr. Jun 6, 2013

    Earth 2 remains one of my favorite titles DC has ever put out. The art work is still fantastic and remains unwavering. Even with this series shotgun pace and over abundance of new characters, Earth 2 has so much to offer without ever getting confusing. So far all of the references being made seem to be on their way to fully developed characters. I am looking forward to getting back to Green lantern and Flash, though, as they do not make an appearance in this issue or the annual. It is nice to see Hawk-girl again and get a piece of that story, plus the cameo by the new Batman. Over all, this is again a must-read issue of a must-read series. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Matt Santori Jun 6, 2013

    From the glow of the fire pits and the revelation of the Red Files to the bright bold Bat symbol gracing the mysterious strangers chest, threads of crimson run through this issue, a perfect foreshadowing for the war that is about to commence and affect our heroes. What I wouldnt do to have 100 more issues like this one to expand on the details of this entirely different planet, but some small consolation remains in the fact that Robinson has so precisely detailed his vision to date that its future will likely benefit from his efforts for years to come. Yet another fantastically absorbing issue of world-building and intrigue, Earth 2 #13 is a perfect taste of what makes this title so special and so rewarding month after month to its loyal fans.

    The Comic Book Revue - Jay Mattson Jun 6, 2013

    I am very sad that James Robinson is leaving Earth 2 because we're now getting to the point in the series where all the various bits and pieces we've been getting over the past year will finally start coming together. He's taking old ideas and totally revamping them in a way that even the rest of the 'New 52' can't top. Read Full Review

    Earth 2, like Green Arrow, Animal Man and JLD, is a hidden jewel in the DC crown, a title more people should be paying attention to. Read Full Review

    If there is one thing that James Robinson is good at it is leaving his readers in suspense, and the final page of this issue is a perfect example of that. Although James has multiple ongoing story lines in this series everything feels really organized, and that's one thing I really enjoy and have been enjoying about this comic. Reading this you never really know what to expect. The result is always surprising and exciting, and paired with the very pretty pencils by Yildray Cinar this has become one of the DC Comics I am most looking forward to each month. Although there were some moments in the dialogue that I felt could have been better written, I have been enjoying this story a lot. There is a lot going on and Robinson has been doing a superb job spacing out the story in a way that makes you keep coming back. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Rob McMonigal Jun 6, 2013

    This series shows what New 52 could have been, had DC decided to be bold start everything from scratch. Writer James Robinson has been free to re-imagine anything he likes, similar to the work Brian Michael Bendis did in Ultimate Spider-Man, and his interpretation of the Lantern mythos is incredibly cool.

    Batman also makes an appearance, but it does little to make up for his dismal debut in Earth 2 Annual #1. As uninteresting as his small appearances are, you can tell there's something larger being set up, but seeing how writer James Robinson will soon be exiting the title, we may never truly see what is to come.

    Another bit of proof that although Robinson's failings lie more in execution than substance, his execution is weak enough to defeat the quality of the work as a whole. Read Full Review
