    Fun trumps continuity.  That's what Didio said right?  There are certainly a lot of strange things in this book, but none of it matters because of the fun you'll have reading it.  Guy is just a straight up bad ass here, that hearkens back to the heroes of 80's action movies, complete with one liners.  Add all that fun to some excellent art that totally compliments the story and you have one hell of an excellent Guy Gardner adventure.

    There is just something really special at the core of this run and I am so very happy to have stumbled upon it, especially when I've be so disinterested in this whole Convergence thing. Guy Gardner has finally taken his place among the Green Lantern elite with this book, and I can't wait to see what the future may hold for the character. If you pick up one book this week this is the one you should get. In fact, pick this one up and grab issue #1 if you can still find it. Convergence – Green Lantern Corps #2 is a fantastic comic book and comes highly recommended. Read Full Review

    Convergence: Green Lantern Corps #2 is a joyful romp through early 1980's era comics that favors a light story and action over melodrama.  If you're a Guy Gardner fan you'll enjoy seeing him true to  his roots in this story, but readers who are looking for serious character studies or a plot that ties back to the main Convergence event will likely be less enthused.  Either way it's probably the most fun you'll have reading one of the event's tie-in series.  Four out of five lanterns.

    Convergence: Green Lantern Corps #2 wraps up a nice little two issue tale for Guy fans with some solid writing and very good artwork. Read Full Review

    While the main Convergence title has failed to make a lasting mark, the tie-ins at least have provided some solid character development, unique art, and couplings of artists and writers who have delivered, in a short span, some great stories. Convergence: Green Lantern Corps #2 is another example of this, and while Hal gets the most attention, it's nice to be reminded of the other Green Lanterns, particularly everyone's favorite warrior. He may not have been chosen first, but he proves once again that his is one of the best. Read Full Review

    If you know the history, the issue might be better. It does take us back to a time when the Green Lantern Corps' human members were rather dysfunctional. We don't get enough of that though. Read Full Review

    As far as this goes for a Guy Gardner story, it's awesome. It's a really fun issue, even though it doesn't live up to the first part of this two-part story. Guy's journey is what fans will love and they'll really be rooting for him. The issue does start off in the middle of a fight, which could make readers feel like they missed something and the overall issue does feel rushed because of restraints for this book, but overall, this was a really fun read and if you loved the first issue, you should check this one out at well. It's a fun read for fans, but just an alright book overall. Read Full Review
