    Earth 2 slaps the mouth of any other book out there. Taylor’s ideas and Scott’s art are a two-fisted knock out that you don’t get up from. This is one of those books you salivate for each month. If you’re not reading Earth 2, you should be. Read Full Review

    Earth 2 #19 keeps a quick pace, faltering only with a couple sloppy transitions and strange character poses. Otherwise, this issue is a must buy. Pick this one up, Nuggeteers. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jess Camacho Jan 9, 2014

    Earth 2 continues to be one of the best DC books going right now. With Injustice and Earth 2 currently going at the same time it's a good time to be a DC superhero fan AND a Tom Taylor fan. Earth 2 continues to have the perfect blend of superhero fare and the unpredictability you won't see in Action or Detective because of the lack of history in this world. Read Full Review

    Nerds On The Rocks - Frank Fuentes Jan 9, 2014

    I can't help give this book enough praise. Free from the creative ties of the Earth Prime books, Taylor is taking this story into some great territory. Batman's origin is coming up next in Earth 2 Annual #2 and Superman's plan will be revealed in Earth 2 #20. As thrilling and exciting as this story has been so far, I'm eagerly awaiting to see what Taylor has in store for us when he wraps his first major arc. If it's anything like Injustice, I'm sure he won't fail to deliver. Read Full Review

    I'm still not crazy about the dark nature of the stories in this series, but I admit I'm curious to see where the series will go from here. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Brian Bannen Jan 14, 2014

    Earth 2 is getting better with every issue, and James Robinson's groundwork has paved the way for a solid third arc which Tom Taylor has made fun and exciting. And with Nicola Scott's visuals, the comic has become a treat to read each month. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Corey 'Undeadpool' Schroeder Jan 8, 2014

    This is still a highly entertaining, excellent book with massive entertainment value. Im still shaking my head and mouthing obscenities about the Superman reveal, so the ride is still a thrilling one. Im also still completely in the dark about how exactly this storyline ends, which is always a bracing face full of cold water in mainstream superhero comics. But in a good way! This book remains one of DCs best, unpredictable but never forced. Read Full Review

    Despite the problems Earth 2 will have pretty soon with how bloated its getting, it still remains one of the best books DC is releasing right now. If youre not reading it now, you should start immediately. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Jan 8, 2014

    Well the momentum couldn't go on forever.  The problem is, how can someone keep topping themselves?  The answer is eventually you can't, and sometimes there has to be a lull. Even though this is another good issue, it finds itself being in the shadow of the issues that came before it.  So go out and get it, and continue your Earth 2 edge of your seat adventure.   Read Full Review

    The cast is ballooning to Legion of Super Heroes proportions, but the story is picking up and does keep things interesting. I hope to see Green Lantern, The Flash, Hawkgirl and Doctor Fate take back the spotlight. I really don't need a new Batman book. But all and all, not bad! Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Jan 13, 2014

    This series needs to extend the page count per issue as "Earth 2" #19 simply didn't have enough room to expand each storyline. The end result is a comic book that feels as though it is jam-packed with cliffhangers, begging readers to come back early and often. At least there is an Annual for this series coming out this month to trim down the time between issues and hopefully advance at least one of the plotlines a bit more as well. Read Full Review

    There are encouraging signs for the future between the lines of this issue, although you're beyond impatient to see the climax already. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Vince Ostrowski Jan 10, 2014

    What used to be appointment comic book reading is now kind of more like a soap opera. Well, a soap opera where there's twists or shocking events on every fifth page. I'll admit that I'm enjoying this title post-Robinson, but it's mostly on a very cheap junk food level. Read Full Review
