    Green Lantern may be able to stop Hand for now, but that would only be a detail: he would have solveda problem while the Green Lantern Corps was gone, but defeating Hand won't bring them back. He would still alone, still be an outlaw, and still struggling to honor his responsibility to peace and justice throughout the galaxy. That's the brilliance of the issue: the immediateplot may come to a satisfying resolution, but thematically, there are still questions to answer, ideas to explore, and if they keep producing issues like this, I will most certainly come back for more.

    Green Lantern #45 is a bit of a quick read but it contains a nice balance of action, humor and character interaction which made the issue a fun read. Black Hand has become the clown prince of death which is forcing Hal Jordan to have to employ a whole new set of tactics, making this issue entertaining both in terms of Robert Venditti's script and Billy Tan's artwork. Four out of five lanterns. Read Full Review

    The issue moves along at a very quick pace and youll find yourself flicking through the pages of Green Lantern #45, as Venditti blends the action and humor with some decent character interaction to advance the plot of the current arc very well indeed. Both Billy Tan and Mark Irwin work together well to give this book a strong atmosphere which is just what it needs for a showdown between Hal Jordan and one of the more unconventional Green Lantern Rogues, and with everything working together very well, Green Lantern continues to be a go-to read for some excellent space opera drama.

    Green Lantern Corps - iggy Oct 8, 2015

    This issue of Green Lantern is prime example that you bring something new to a character without altering something just to fit a particular narrative. So while fans of Hal Jordan may not be happy but I think the new disaster that is Black Hand balances makes up for it. Overall an entertaining issue with a dash of creepiness, fitting for this the season. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Oct 8, 2015

    Our story finally gets legs and starts moving here, but because of elements of the plot that seem to contradict things that we've seen in past issues, I found myself liking the concept of this story more than the issue itself.  If you're looking for a straight up street fight between Hal Jordan and Black Hand though, this might be the issue for you.

    This "renegade" arc has gotten off to a fantastic start! It's right up there with X-O Manowar, IMHO. Must read!

    I'm really enjoying this new direction for Hal, it's much more personal without the Corps around and the stakes are riskier. The one thing that threw me off was the ship being bored in the field, I thought it was a great idea but it seemed to be building to something without getting there before the end of the issue. So the buildup won't be as effective next month.

    Intriguing enough

    Weakest issue in Venditti run so far IMO, just some punches exchanged and not much else happened.
