Right off the bat I’ll say I Earth 2 #2 is better than issue #1. We are getting to know our main characters. The book jumps from character to character as they wil inevitably make there way to a team.
James Robinson and Nicola Scott do a great job introducing Mister Terrific from his pervious book with a nice twist. The Jay Garrick/Mercury situation ends how most people would expect from the first issue. The pages with Alan Scott have already been released in previews and they are a good read but blown way out of proportion by the news.
Robinson’s writing reads more naturally in this issue than last. The art is yet again gorgeous. I do have to say I am not a fan of Jay Garrick’s uniform. It’s just all over the place. There is too much going on by his rib cage. I do like the lightning bolt running down his leg. The boots are cool. I wish the helmet was either the old helmet or the new fancy torpedo looking helmet cyclists wear. Overall the costume just needs to be streamlined.
I’d give it a 4 out of 5 stars.
Now on to the SPOILERY stuff…
