    Green Lantern #49 wraps up the first appearance of the new Sonar without a real conclusion with Robert Venditti choosing instead to leave both with things to think about before locking horns somewhere down the road. The cracks are beginning to show in Hal's armor at just the wrong time with Parallax literally on the horizon, setting the reader up for what could be a very climactic fiftieth issue.

    So this was a good little read. It had angst, danger and some limited action. Read Full Review

    Another solid issue from Venditti and crew as the recreation of Emerald Twilight continues. A lot of pieces have been set for the fiftieth issue of Green Lantern, it'll be interesting to see how Robert manages to bring it all together in the next issue. Read Full Review

    The bombing antics of our villain Sonar continue in this issue, but this story arc is just falling flat in the excitement factor because Hal is simply waiting for things to go down the whole time and his reactionary stance just leads me to yawn my way through these issues. I begged for so long to get Hal back on Earth, but after reading these last couple of issues, I have to say that I want his ass back in space because at least there he was interesting.......... not just ruining his brother's day over and over again. At least the art was fantastic in this issue and thankfully that's something I can count on month after month. Read Full Review

    Please start a new story and get a new artist for this series, DC Comics! This issue would not inspire anyone to continue reading it. Read Full Review

    Martin Coccolo's sleek art gives the book points for a solid fill-in artist, but otherwise this issue does more harm for the series than good. Read Full Review

    Green Lantern #49 is an underwhelming issue that makes us wish Hal Jordan was back in space as his return to Earth has left much to be desired. That said, I am curious to see just what DC has planned for Hal vs. Hal. Given that I'm not completely sold on this version of the character, I have to wonder whether or not DC has the stones to turn the book over to Parallax and really shake up the balance of power within the DCU. Pass. Read Full Review

    Oh I see, Sonar is not a complex villain, he wants to fight every major country in the world; so he's just off his rocker. A very traditional comic book villain too, his diabolical plan is so outlandish, I feel like this comic should have come out 50 years ago. In that sense, it's kind of fun, in a rediculous way, I just wish someone told me ahead of time that I was reading Green Lantern '66. And again, Paralax shows up in the last page to be foreboding, I seriously did not need him to do that for three consecutive issues.
