    Still running as one of my top two favorite titles in the market today, and always the one I cant wait to read the moment it goes live online, Earth 2 #24 is but the run-up to what looks like the biggest freefall excitement the title has had, coming next month. Whether its to see Vals emergence as the next Superman or Jimmys leap into the classic togs of Robin my jury is still out on whether that was a serious claim or not this is a book you do not want to miss. The action only gets bigger from here. Read Full Review

    IGN - Mike Logsdon Jun 5, 2014

    Tom Taylor has worked hard to give us a slew of new and interesting characters since his takeover of this series, but issue #24 sees him perform a perfect balancing act of old and new. Read Full Review

    An issue of sustained positive and interplay among the cast. Will Wonders never cease? Read Full Review

    Comic Booked - David Hinspeter Jun 9, 2014

    I didn't really dig the strange and abrupt introduction of the Beguiler, but everything else about this issue was worth reading. I wanted to learn more about what was going on with Red Tornado, as she is stuck with Darkseid Superman. Since I wanted it so bad, of course it didn't happen. The Val reveal wasn't too surprising, but I enjoy how they are bringing him into being a Superman by degrees. I just can't wait for SOMETHING to finally wrap up. Read Full Review

    Earth 2 this month was nice breath of fresh air from the defeats of the protagonist over the past several months. Maybe this is a turning point for the series itself? Only time will tell. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Jun 4, 2014

    Eddy Barrows is on art detail this month, and while normally I might have thrown a tantrum when noticing Nicola Scott missing from the credits, Barrows does this issue proud and represents our Earth 2 heroes in a "I can't find any reason to bitch about this not being Nicola Scott" manner.  Every month this series tends to read really fast, and with the amount of action that Taylor throws at us, it's to be expected, but for some reason this issue seemed faster, and not a lot was achieved in this fast read.  This is my favorite book and with the amount of characters that need to be explored, I have to understand that not ever issue can blow me away.  I'm just getting greedy I guess because I just wanted more from this issue.  Still a awesome read, and I'll continue talk about it to whoever will listen.  Go check it out.

    Batman-News - Sean Buckley Jul 1, 2014

    I keep waiting for the right blend of character development and action, and this issue delivered for the most part. It felt forced in some places, but overall was a fun quick story with at least one loose end resolved. I'm still waiting for the fight against Superman; there have been too many Evil-Superman stories recently. Read Full Review

    After a far-too long period of watching Evil Superman kill people and destroy things, it was nice to see the heroes come out ahead on, well, anything. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Jun 9, 2014

    Judging by his output in books like this and Injustice, it feels like Tom Taylor is a writer better suited for binge-reading rather than month-to-month installments. As part of a larger whole, I think that Earth 2 might be a more palatable read, with the breaks between action and characterization feeling a little less pronounced. However, as a single issue, this comic feels a little bit directionless, with long speeches and battle sequences stopping and starting and petering out just before they begin. Read Full Review
