    As with issue #1 Star Trek/Green Lantern is quite brilliant! With Mike Johnson (writer), Angel Hernandez and Alejandro Sanchez (art and colours) delivering an unbelievably fantastic comic book that leaves no time to breath and will you whip " at breakneck speed " through the pages. It is a perfect package of Star Trek and Green Lantern and as mentioned last month I don't even consider myself a Green Lantern fan, but here I am desperate already for Issue #3 of this comic series, alas however I now have to wait a very long month.

    Hernandez and Johnson have their plates full, attempting to combine two huge science fiction/ adventure franchises. They need to include enough material from both sides to please their fans, maintain cannon and continuity, and still produce an entertaining comic without falling into the "my guy can beat your guy" trap. So far, they are managing to keep everything on track. Read Full Review

    An excellent second issue which does much to generate the excitement missing from the first issue. Read Full Review

    Star Trek/Green Lantern continues to capture the imagination, with the narrative bringing together the two series in an exciting manner. It also teases greater potential, with the final moments leaving this reader more than excited about the next issue. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Josh McCullough Aug 12, 2015

    Im really pleased by how much The Spectrum War steps up in terms of quality. Issue one featured some good set-up and showcased a lot of potential, and issue two takes that potential and runs full steam ahead ensuring lots of fan pleasing moments that should get peoples pulses running. If the series can continue this upward trend in the rest of its issues then this will really be a crossover to remember. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Aug 16, 2015

    The action and the plot set up are perfectly distributed here as we see the players of the Spectrum War set up as Hal Jordan makes his presence known in the Star Trek Universe by taking on a Klingon Sinestro Corpsmen.  This is just the perfect merge of both of these worlds and the creators are blowing me away with the care they're taking in presenting both properties respectfully.  I love the art and I'm intrigued by the story and I can't wait to continue it.  Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Grant Raycroft Aug 12, 2015

    Star Trek/Green Lantern continues to be infectiously fun. As a summer full of depressing controversies wraps up, this book delivers such raw enthusiasm for what equates to someone playing with a mixed up bucket of action figures and it's impossible not to be swept up in this. The series approaches its ridiculous concept with nothing but fanatical vigor so there's no reason to pass it up. Read Full Review

    But while this book has some kinks to iron out, it's doing a fine job of capitalizing on such a wild crossover concept. Read Full Review

    Blog Of Oa - Myron Rumsey Aug 13, 2015

    The Star Trek / Green Lantern crossover continues to be exactly what it should be - a fun cosmic romp that embraces the rich mythology of two of the best science fiction franchises ever. This second issue develops the potential for a major threat as three of the Federation's greatest enemies find themselves equipped with the deadliest power rings in the emotional spectrum. Some art bumps in the road aside this is definitely worth picking up. Four out of five lanterns. Read Full Review

    This is still a set-up issue at heart, but what it's setting up is some of the most fun Star Trek you'll get to read in comic form. Read Full Review

    Villain Smash - Brady Steele Aug 12, 2015

    Star Trek / Green Lantern: the Spectrum War #2 continues to satisfy any qualms a fan of each franchise may have had before this story started. It flows along at a quick pace and delivers on the visuals. Once again, the last page gives readers a great hook to come back for more space cop / sci-fi goodness next month. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Pablo Arriaga Aug 12, 2015

    The art suffers from the same issues I mentioned on my last review. And they're more noticeable now that they have the rings and should be succumbing to their emotions. Colors on the other hand, are beautiful, Alejandro Sanchez knows very well how to make the page vibrant with the contrast of the different lanterns battling each other. Read Full Review
