    “Earth 2″ #26 is a book worthy of a perfect score. It ends a major phase of the series while setting up an enticing future and makes the weekly series feel like a must own. Nicola Scott also gives the best art of the series yet. The future of Earth 2 itself might not be so bright but the series is at an all time high. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Matt Santori Aug 6, 2014

    A brilliant conclusion to a true roller coaster ride, Earth 2 #26 gives me so much to love and get excited about for the future of the title. Seeing how Taylor weaves into every scenario an elegant solution that leaves things even better than they were before makes waiting for the next issue even harder than ever. Thank you, team, for your hard work, and most of all, thanks for our new Superman. We never knew he was exactly what we wanted (and needed) all along. Read Full Review

    IGN - Mike Logsdon Aug 7, 2014

    Tom Taylor certainly hasn't made things any easier on our heroes since his arrival, but with his latest issue, he gives readers a very satisfying conclusion to The Kryptonian storyline that has given rise not only to a brand new Superman, but a reinvigorated Earth 2 super team.

    With one sharp turn, Taylor finally puts to rest one of the most sustained conflicts on any Earth of the DCU, and Scott nearly surpasses herself. Read Full Review

    I've enjoyed this title ever since it debuted, and even with Mr. Taylor taking over the writing from James Robinson, I feel the quality has remained excellent. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Corey 'Undeadpool' Schroeder Aug 6, 2014

    This isnt a perfect ending, but its a very good one. It takes a few missteps, but Val-Zods arc is ultimately incredibly satisfying and the visuals help elevate it as a whole as well. There are moments of levity and humor, which help contrast the ending, equal parts hope for the future and grim realizations, and it leaves the world in an incredibly interesting place. As long as you dont take the cover at face value, this is a very satisfying end to one of the most tumultuous arcs in recent memory. Read Full Review

    Green Lantern Corps - iggy Aug 7, 2014

    Earth 2 #26 was a fantastic conclusion to this arc. It was bombastic, keeping the reader on the edge of their seats only letting up when emotional moments needed to be hit, and even then those scenes were tense. Thank you Nicola Scott for your work on this, I speak for myself when I say I enjoyed each panel on each page. Also much love to Yildiray Cinar for his issues as well. Read Full Review

    I was considering dropping this title, but this was a nice upswing. I'll stick with it longer, and hope the rumors about it being cancelled are wrong. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Aug 6, 2014

    While Earth 2 is my favorite book in the New 52, I found the end of the Kryptonian story arc to be just a little too convenient.  Everything just seems too simple in the end and I wonder why any of our heroes had any real difficulty in completing their task in the first place.  Yeah maybe I'm exaggerating the ease in what these characters had to do, but it just didn't seem like a proper ending to the epic story that this was.  It's a good issue, just not what I was expecting when reading up to it.   Read Full Review

    EARTH 2 now moves on towards the Worlds End where war looms on the horizon. In this series, anything can happen and literally does when you turn the world inside out. EARTH 2 #26 is an excellent read and highly recommended if you want a whole new structure to some of DC favorite characters. Read Full Review

    This book, under Tom Taylor, has remained better than I ever thought it would, post-James Robinson. But this issue is a mess " hopefully, the weekly rights the ship. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Sean Buckley Aug 7, 2014

    I never thought I could feel so cheated and foolish for buying a comic. I have never had that feeling, and it's not fun. Earth 2 is my favorite series outside of Batman, and this felt like a rushed, poorly-edited excuse for a book that has had an otherwise strong run. This doesn't get a 1 because of that Batman punch " that sweet Batman punch. I can understand being unable to live up to expectations, but it felt like there wasn't even an attempt made here.

    I was conflicted on what to give this comic. Leaned toward a 7.5 but...we do have some satisfying art and moments. However things just ended too quickly. Should have been panned out more. I never have thought this before, but the ads really killed this issue. There were like 10 pages of ads at the end of this issue and I have to think that more could have been done if they weren't there. Perhaps something like this would have read better in trade format. Anyway, still a good conclusion but definitely felt lacking. Also Power Girl is on the cover and doesn't appear once in this issue (I can't stand misleading covers).
