    The above complaint is minor at best. Ill never fully object to more Nicola Scott art, after all, and this really feels like what the book has been building to. The battle is epic, we even get appearances from a couple of Earth 2 favorites that I didnt mention because I dont want to spoil, so theres nothing stopping me from recommending this, besides the fact that if you havent been reading, you really should pick up at least the previous collected volume. The book is definitely predicated on a basic understanding of the situation up to this point, but I dont necessarily think that writing with longtime fans in mind is inherently a bad thing.

    Robinson is a master storyteller, and Nicola Scott executes perfectly what is in his mind’s eye. Earth 2 is really spectacular stuff. Read Full Review

    The “other war” with Steppenwolf in Earth 2 looks to be shaping up into a sturdy alternative to the Trinity War that will soon engulf the DC universe. Hopefully the trio of new wonders can work with the Sandmen to weaken Steppenwolf's army. With only two issues of Robinson's run remaining, it should be quite a ride. Read Full Review

    "Earth 2" #14 is another installment in a collection of enjoyable world-building stories from Robinson and company. The fact that Robinson has been afforded a great deal of autonomy building "Earth 2" certainly helps distinguish this book from becoming "just another title." The series has been a breath of fresh air in this year of cancellations across DC's line and has made a very strong case to be one of the best books the company publishes. Read Full Review

    Once again, Scott's art saves the issue from total mediocrity, but you can't overlook Robinson's bizarre storytelling choices. Read Full Review

    All in all, this was a decent issue with great artwork, but not much in terms of story development. Read Full Review

    The concept of Earth 2 has never been bad, and I've truly wanted to enjoy it. A gay Green Lantern and a world of Wonders and a grim war against Apokolips? I'm totally there. I live for that stuff. But the start-stop plot, the cumbersome dialogue, and the unexplored overarching themes all weigh it down so much that I just can't recommend you invest your time or money in it. Read Full Review
