"Robinson is a master storyteller, and Nicola Scott executes perfectly what is in his mind's eye. Earth 2 is really spectacular stuff."--CRAVEONLINE

4.0 out of 5 stars Earth - 2, World War - 4 23 April 2014
By Mr. Mice Guy TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition
This storyline runs through issues #13-16 of DC Comics' `New 52' title Earth 2, collected, along with issue #15.1 and Earth 2 Annual #1, as Earth 2 Volume 3: War HC (The New 52). These stories feature the usual spectacular widescreen artwork and excellent scripting that we expect from this series. This really is the only truly `new' world among the New 52's wide range of titles - at least 73 issue #1s by my count - as it has truly reimagined Earth 2 and its heroes in the way that Julius Schwartz did for the original Golden Age DC characters when he reintroduced them in the 1950s and 1960s to create the modern DC universe.

In this volume we finally get the resumption of the war against Apokolips, as the World Army invades Steppenwolf's domain. However, our new wonder-team, Green Lantern, Flash and Doctor Fate decide to invade first, in order to raise the public awareness of the new `wonders' and try and stop the world's governments and agencies trying to conscript them. The World Army has its own Wonders, as well as the Sandmen Corps, and it is not impressed, until Steppenwolf unleashes his own super-team, and our heroes have to step in to rescue the World Army. The last-page reveal (alright, third-from-last page) of the supervillain leader was a surprise - though I did think that he and his friends might return eventually - and opens the door for a lot of possibilities, especially after the climax of the Justice Leagues' Justice League Trinity War HC (The New 52) (Justice League (DC Comics)).

4.0 out of 5 stars Earth 2 vs. Steppenwolf 27 April 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This volume includes issues 13-16 of the New 52 series 'Earth 2' as well as Earth 2 Annual 1 and the special villains issue 15.1 which features Desaad. Presumably, issue 15.2, which is the second villains issue,will be included in a subsequent volume of the series. I've quite enjoyed this series, although probably, this volume is the weakest collection to-date as the storyline feels a little fragmented as a result of the 'special' issues included in this collection. The storyline continues with an attack by the Earth government on Steppenwolf ANC his forces and as such, there is quite a lot of action and less story development. There are some surprises with new and returning characters and the artwork continues to be pretty spectacular. All in all a nice book and I will be back for volume 5.

4.0 out of 5 stars Visit DC's alternate universe in 'Earth 2 Volume 3: Battle Cry' 16 April 2014
By ERSInk . com - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
DC Comics takes readers into an alternate world with "Earth 2 Volume 3: Battle Cry." This is where the publisher encourages readers to go when they want to venture outside the box and visit another world less confined by traditional continuity. It's a universe where anything can happen and nothing is sacred.

"Earth 2 Volume 3: Battle Cry" collects issues 13 through 19 of the monthly series, Annual #1, and issue #15.1 Desaad. The new wonders of the alternate universe clash with Steppenwolf and the Hunger Dogs of Apokolips over the fate of the Earth. A familiar figure enters the battlefield in the form of Batman. Can he help tip the scales in the favor of the super heroes or will he become just another victim of Steppenwolf's powerful army?

James Robinson, Paul Levitz, and Tom Taylor all take turns handling the writing duties for "Earth 2 Volume 3: Battle Cry." Each one does a great job intersecting their individual sections. The overall story is an entertaining battle epic with a surprise ending that will have readers scrambling for the issue that continues the saga.

The art for "Earth 2 Volume 3: Battle Cry" is handled by Yildiray Cinar, Trevor Scott, and Nicola Scott. They bring their individual styles to the table as they visually interpret the words of the writers through pictures. Yildiray Cinar's work in the final chapter stands out the most obvious from the rest of the talent.

With its usual amount of comic book violence, gore, and language, "Earth 2 Volume 3: Battle Cry" will satisfy fans looking for an escape from the normal DC Universe continuity. A cliffhanger ending, which should come as no surprise to those expecting the unexpected in a book set in an alternate world, will have the reader floored and ready to hit the local comic book shop looking for back issues of the monthly title that pick up where this leaves off.

4.0 out of 5 stars This is a totally different Earth, not just a parallel universe with the same characters in different situations. 12 Jun 2014
By Matt Anderson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Collects Earth 2 issues #13-16, issues #15.1, and Earth 2 Annual #1

-This is a totally different Earth, not just a parallel universe with the same characters in different situations.

-The sources of many of the heroes' powers are totally different than how similar characters received powers on Prime Earth.

-They killed the Batman of Earth 2 in the first issue of this series, and brought him back in this volume. It still isn’t clear if this is the same Bruce Wayne Batman, or if it is a different person. However, his costume is different. It has some similarities to the Batman Beyond look…red and black.

-Some of Darkseid’s forces became stuck on Earth 2 during a war 5 years ago, and now Darkseid’s general, Steppenwolf, if trying to take over the planet for himself. This leads to a war between his army and the World Army (which includes the Wonders of America).

SPOILERS:

-The Atom of Earth 2 gets featured during one of the issues, and I enjoyed learning a little more about his back-story.

-A new hero that I’ve never heard of, Captain Steel, is also featured. His origin story is similar to Cyborg’s. A young boy from the Philippines is sick and dying, so his genius father works on a plan to save him using technology. His father developed something called Mad-Metal which stuck to the boy’s bones the way that Adamantium clung to Wolverine. Captain Steel’s origin is also like Captain America’s in that he is the only one with these powers because his dad was killed before being able to duplicate the process in other soldiers. The instructions on how to do the process was deleted by his father before his death. Captain Steel’s costume is also reminiscent of Captain America. Also, Captain Steel can communicate with machines for some reason. I was with them on his origin until that little tidbit popped up.

-Mr. Miracle and Barda know about the new Batman, and are looking for him when they are attacked by Fury (the Wonder Woman-like bad guy).

-There’s a new character, named Henri Roy, Jr., and I think he is going to become a wonder.

-We find out that there was a program, called the Red Files, in which the World Army attempted to make new wonders after they won the war with Apokolips. This is why so many heroes have “red” before their name.

-Red Arrow makes his first appearance in the series, and his costume design is very similar to Marvel’s Hawkeye.

-Red Tornado makes her first appearance in the series, and while I believe she is still an android, she is now a female in the New 52.

-Mr. Freeze isn’t on Earth 2, but there is some villain called Mister Icicle.

-Dr. Fate and Hawkgirl were kind of lame in this volume.

-Captain Steel travels to the center of some fire pit and discovers that there is a female Red Lantern inside. If she is released, it will be the death of the planet.

-One of the biggest surprises is when Steppenwolf uses his team of three super-powered soldiers to take on the Wonders. These three terrors easily defeat the good guys, but when Steppenwolf is bragging, one of the three, Brutaal, cuts him in half with red hot eye beams. It is then revealed that Brutaal is actually Superman…but evil now, and subservient to Darkseid. The other two terrors, Bedlam and Beguiler, don’t seem to be anyone else that we know.

-Brutaal kills Steppenwolf because Steppenwolf was looking out for himself instead of Darkseid. He wanted to be his own master.

-The character Khan is cool, kind of like an Ultimate Nick Fury, but I can’t remember how he and Mr. Terrific started working together.

-Hawkgirl meets some new bad guys, Hazard and his violin-playing companion, Melody. They defeat her with music…

-I like the Earth 2 Green Lantern, but there isn’t much to say about him in regards to this volume.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fast and furious 24 May 2014
By VASS - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Amazing art and edgy storytelling for a new JSA as new never seen before. I can see why this may not be for everybody in regards to JSA loyalists but this has been a thrill ride for me.
5.0 out of 5 stars All Hail Darkside!!! 10 July 2014
By I'm here - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The Wonders get beaten, the enemy is sliced in half, and someone gets their face smashed in. Earth 2 is getting good. For those yet to read this amazing series, shame on you. The art is among the best DC has ever offered, even surpassing The Great Jim Lee. You think I'm lying? I believe you'll change your mind. As one of the most original series out there, it still possesses great potential today. I see a few crossovers with the main DC universe, particularly with World's Finest and then something bigger if you've been reading Future's End. The way thing's are turning out, I won't make you love this series, I'll let this series do it on it's own.
