    I liked this book, although there needs to be an effort to show just how it lines up with the main series. Read Full Review

    Staying off of the world of "Flashpoint," this story offers just enough of an "Elseworlds" feel to be enjoyable, and save some distinctions otherwise could easily be a tale from the adventures of Abin Sur before he died and passed the ring of Sector 2814 to Hal Jordan. This issue is an intriguing glimpse at what could have been, given a surreal focus when directed through the lens of designs of the "Green Lantern" feature film. Read Full Review

    No doubt this series will gather steam as it veers away from simply showcasing alternate takes on familiar GL concepts and more directly intertwines itself with the events of Flashpoint. But with only two issues remaining, Schlagman has precious little time in which to pick up the pace. Read Full Review

    More of a novelty than anything else, this issue does give us Abin Sur knocking the snot out of his dear friend Sinestro. Sadly it also gives as an update that this reality is still stuck in the dark days of Blackest Night. Ugh, and I thought Emperor Aquaman was bad. Hit-and-Miss. Read Full Review

    While I've long liked the Abin Sur character, he's gotten a bit of a bump in the last few years and in particular from the movie this summer and this rendition is just unlikable. And I get it where that's part of the point, but it cuts a lot of the connection you can make to the character, which in turn keeps you from caring what happens to him and whether he achieves his goals. Nobody comes out of this book as a decent character or one that you would follow, which is not what I've found with the other books for the most part so far. The Corps hasn't changed much in this Flashpoint world, which definitely makes sense when you consider that they've had no real involvement with the planet so their path may have missed a lot of events because of that, but who they are as an organization isn't radically changed. I went into this book really curious to see what they'd do, but it left me very cold towards future issues. Read Full Review
