    Every single member of the creative team brought their A-Game for this issue. There are some truly personal moments towards the end of the book that were my absolute favorites (you'll know it when you see it), and I loved the hints of mythology that were subtly peppered into the dialogue. This story is a prime example of why I love reading comics. If you haven't been reading this book, now is the time to catch up as Alan Scott: The Green Lantern keeps getting better with each new installment. The character moments are incredibly raw and genuinely impressive. Read Full Review

    It's hard to find much to dislike aboutAlan Scott: The Green Lantern, and issue #4 is no different. Once again, DC has knocked it out of the park with a comic that begs to be read, analyzed, and reread over and over again. It will be interesting to see where this comic goes as the end approaches, and it's absolutely worth a read or four. Read Full Review

    The art is strong as always, and Sheridan's deft, emotional script manages to perfectly capture the time period and make this feel like one of the most personal superhero tales on the stands. Read Full Review

    Alan Scott's most personal conflict yet manifests in a backstory-filled, but still engrossing peak. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Jan 30, 2024

    Alan Scott: The Green Lantern #4 gets to the heart of the issue by giving readers the full scoop on the Red Lantern's origins. While the reveal isn't the least bit surprising, it's well done. That said, Sheridan succeeds in building Red Lantern up by tearing Alan Scott down into a confused, chronically horny man whose libido clouds his judgment at every turn. Read Full Review

    What a beautiful book, the dynamic between the Red and Green Lantern is a whole new beast that deserves to be explored more.

    goated. Don’t listen to the homophobic fake reviews this is the best issue of this book so far. The complex relationship we’re getting between the green and red lanterns is awesome and if one of them was a woman those guys would all agree

    Only praise I can give this issue is that the Red Lantern was interesting, and it builds off of what Geoff Johns introduced in the 2022 New Golden Age book. Everything else is boring, mainly Alan Scott. You can have gay characters with personality DC Comics, it’s not that hard.

    It's like a bad joke: get a six-issue miniseries, fill it with flashbacks, advance the actual plot by one hour on a good day. Alan Scott: The Green Lantern is badly structured, there's no way around that, but it's such a deeply disappointing book that that's somehow the least of its faults.

    First things first: time-travelling in order to pass through walls is needlessly overcomplicated. Alan has been able to phase through walls (in a ghost-like manner, is the image the 1940s comics want to invoke) since his very first appearance, he's also previously been shown as able to time travel (Gotham Knights #10 from December 2000 calling!), there's simply no possible need for one power to inform the other except in the service of this bo more
