When Jo Mullein left Earth for parts unknown, little did she know she’d end up becoming a Green Lantern at the farthest outpost in the known universe, dealing with a complex culture that was about to have its first murder in centuries. Investigating that death unearthed a lot of secrets and made her a lot of enemies, and it all comes to a head in this rousing final issue. Written by multiple Hugo Award winner N.K. Jemisin and drawn by Naomi co-creator Jamal Campbell, this epic space adventure is one you will want to read over and over again.

    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford Jun 8, 2021

    When all is said and done, Far Sector #12 delivers a superb finale to its phenomenal tale. The only complaint I can levy against it is that there is no more to enjoy. To Jemisin, Campbell, and Bennett, thank you for delivering this superlative story. Its emotional depth and deep themes about society make it a story that stands with the titans of its medium.

    Black Nerd Problems - Morgan Hampton Jun 9, 2021

    I'm so excited for her next adventures. She's already a main character in the new Green Lantern series also featuring John Stewart, so I think it's safe to say she's not going anywhere any time soon. Jo Mullein is the future.  Read Full Review

    Comics Bookcase - Zack Quaintance Jun 8, 2021

    Far Sector #12 marks the end of a tremendous run of comics, a different sort of cosmic Big 2 comic that has the potential to be a long-term evergreen seller, even in bookshops that dont specialize in selling comics. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Jonathan Cadotte Jun 12, 2021

    Far Sector #12 is a fine send off for the series as well as the Young Animal imprint in belonged to. The emotional resonance and visuals are enough to offset some of the pacing issues in the early pages. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Jun 8, 2021

    It's an ambitious series, but one that mostly sticks the landing despite some pacing struggles along the way. It's good to have another diverse Lantern added to the GLC"and, I believe, the first LGBT one"but any future writer to work with her will have a high bar to match. Read Full Review

    While I hope this isn't the last we've seen of Far Sector, it is a fitting and satisfying end to one of my favorite Lantern tales ever and will be a series I recommend to anyone who will listen. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Jun 12, 2021

    The main story wraps a bit too abruptly, but I think the character work and the artwork more than elevate this series in the end. It's a good read as a whole. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Jun 15, 2021

    Far Sector offered the feel of old school sci-fi, mixed with mystery and comic action with an undercurrent of class warfare and racial injustice. It's a thoughtful and engaging story to see played out over a dozen issues. Both it, and it's creation of Sojourner Mullein, were a great success. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Ryan Perry Jun 8, 2021

    More than anything, Jemisin and Campbell deliver an issue that feels bittersweet. They both have obvious talent on display, and it seems like all of the issues' flaws simply stem from there being too few pages. However, the flaws that exist are fairly significant, and can really water down what had been set up to be an extremely exciting conclusion. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd Jun 8, 2021

    Despite the pacing issues of this series, I can't recommend Far Sector enough. Overall, it's a wonderfully interesting, entertaining and challenging series. Jemisin will make you think! Jemisin will also make you feel. The series was shockingly topical at times as the Summer of 2020 provided the United States with some social unrest that resonated with the plot Jemisin had already written for the issues that were released at that time. Far Sector #12 may feel a bit unsatisfying on its own, but the series is definitely worth a read, and it will probably be even better experienced as a whole. Read Full Review

    Blurb: A masterpiece of the Beautiful, the Bizarre and everything in-between.

    I must confess, that of the great pantheon of Superheroes (or 'Metahumans' as DC would have us say), The Green Lantern has always been to me an after-thought. I never quite warmed-up to the character (regardless of whoever was under the mask) and compared to the other greats of the DC universe, I found Green Lantern to be quite superfluous. In fact the only thing I have ever enjoyed about The Green Lantern Corps, has been their stirringly eloquent oath. However, N.K. Jemisin has opened my eyes to an iteration of the character which I cannot get enough of.

    I suppose the best thing about this story is its overall disconnect from the rest of Gr more

    It wasn’t perfect, but NK Jemisin’s first comic is better than the best comic for many many other writers. Campbell’s art was absolutely stunning every single issue. The plot felt confusing at times but overall Far Sector was a breath of fresh air, unlike every comic I’ve read before

    The ending of Far Sector is solid through and through. All storylines are tied up nicely. Jemisin and Campbell have created a great universe and cosmic adventure.

    This is the review for the entire series, and it is decent. I like how Jo Mullein is like the detective version of Green Lantern and she has a likeable personality. Interesting to see her interact with Hal Jordan.

    Well.. I'm glad this could all be solved with an appeal to emotion, which historically has always on the emotionless. Seriously, forget all the less than spectacular infusion of internet culture into sci-fi, the problem this series has from issue one is that it doesn't know how to portray emotionless people. The art and the writing fail spectacularly in this regard, and it's genuinely absurd that the climax would crescendo with yet another failure. It's crazy, man.
