The Lantern story wraps up here. We learn about more heroes in this version of the DCU. And things are moving towards a Crisis. But I almost feel like this arc warranted a 5th issue. I would have liked to see the resolutions of the main plots explored just a bit more. Still, Smallville remains one of my favorite and one of the best comics out there. Read Full Review
Maybe I was spoiled by the explosiveness of last week's issue, but Smallville: Lantern #4 was a bit of a letdown. However, with Bryan Q. Miller, even a letdown is a good issue. The character interactions are great, but the story is put on hold until next week. Granted, I can't wait until next week as usual. Read Full Review
The final issue wraps up the various threads of the mini-series, although it does have to rely on a giant space whale fighting a giant space worm which began to make my eyes glaze over (as it did when Geoff Johns introduced the various space entities in charge of the color spectrum). Despite being impaled by a yellow-ring construct Superman comes out unharmed, and with the reboot of both Yellow and Green Lanterns rings he also says farewell to the responsibility of being a member of the Corps. Although Lex doesn't actually get his hand on a ring he does learn the valuable lesson on the usefulness of allies which means we may see a legion or secret society in Smallville's not-too-distant future. Worth a look. Read Full Review
