    A well drawn three character conflict that ends with a solid surprise. I felt twenty years younger reading this book. Read Full Review

    Tony Bedard writes an action-packed and thrilling conclusion to his epic Green Lantern/Parallax story. Bedard hits the nail on the head as he continues to focus on the much more personal story of Kyle trying to reach Hal through the monster that is Parallax. Read Full Review

    This was an epic blast for from the past! For those who aren't enjoying Convergence, these "Two-Shot" comics are worth every penny. You don't even have to read the main title to enjoy these stories. Green Lantern/Parallax #2 gets my seal of approvalbecause it leaves you wanting more. That's the only let down when it comes to these brief glimpses into DC lore, but because these stories were already told any fan wanting more can pick up some old graphic novels to fillthe void.

    While this title won't blow you away with it's Convergence story, it will show you the lengths that a hero will go to do the right thing and isn't that why we read superhero stories in the first place?  Really though, this is a good issue and while it gives us mostly fighting and destruction, it does manage to give us something a bit different than any other Convergence title so far.  So yeah, all you Zero Hour era fans better be picking this one up.

    A good-looking issue that revisits the rivalry/friendship of Earth's greatest Green Lanterns (but nobody tell Gardner I said that.) Read Full Review

    Convergence: Parralax/Green Lantern is a fun issue and nothing more. It falls victim to the Convergence formula which ultimately either leaves the reader a bit disappointed and wanting more because each story feels so rushed or wondering why the story exists in the first place. The dialogue is fine and the battles are fun with some solid art, but in the end, it's a two issue story featuring some great characters that ultimately falls flat because it's as trapped within the formula as the characters were within their cities. If you like these characters, for sure, check this issue out, but this wasn't as essential a read as I originally projected. Read Full Review

    In the end Convergence: Green Lantern / Parallax #2 suffers from having to serve two masters, and in this case the two don't mix well.  While one wants to hope that Kyle Rayner can win out in the end the overarching weight of DC's event forces his personal mission to take a backseat to the winner take all dome match.  Despite some nice character moments this series seems rushed and lacking in anything memorable.  Two out of five lanterns..

    "Convergence: Green Lantern/Parallax" #2 feels like one of the more skippable "Convergence" tie-ins to date. I can't see fans of either Hal Jordan or Kyle Rayner being terribly happy about the events of this comic. I suppose, if nothing else, it does give us the definitive destruction of one of the other cities of "Convergence," but that's hardly reason to pick up this comic. In the end, this feels ill-conceived and a little pointless. Read Full Review
