With the so-called Peace Division firing upon the protesters it's meant to protect, new Green Lantern Jo Mullein devises a novel solution to bring the chaos to a close-one that causes the rookie Lantern to run afoul of the City Enduring's leadership council. Meanwhile, we learn more about Jo's recruitment into the Green Lantern Corps, and the nature of her mysterious and unique power ring.

    An impressive fourth issue that raises the stakes, hints at complexities we couldn't have even guessed at, while also developing the Green Lantern mythos. Don't skip this series -- it's one of the best superhero books in some time. Read Full Review

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Feb 26, 2020

    Everyone right now is looking at their favorite Green Lantern for the 80th Anniversary, but for me that Lantern just so happens to be Green Lantern Jo Mullein. That may be a quick decision after only four issues, but none share a personality and use of the ring quite like this. Far Sector #4 solidified that choice through the tackling of relevant themes that we see in our own world, and handled with such brilliance towards accuracy and proper engagement. Read Full Review

    Far Sector #4, the most linear issue of Far Sector, is also one of the most fascinating, as Jo Mullein grapples with the failings of the strange planet she finds herself on and commits herself to change. Read Full Review

    Green Lantern Mullien has seen what is happening in the City Enduring in on her native planet. The people are mad and feel like their concerns aren't being heard. The rich and powerful sit in their high rises like they don't have a care in the world. The City Enduring is turning into a powder keg, and Lantern Mullien may be the only person with knowledge and experience needed to maintain the peace on this planet, despite the fact she is a rookie Green Lantern.

    Major Spoilers - Jonathan Cadotte Feb 29, 2020

    Far Sector #4 has an overabundance of stellar interactions between characters. It's these scenes that more than make up for the questionable tinkering with the green lantern powerset. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Jay Hill Feb 26, 2020

    Far Sector #4 moves the series along, if at a somewhat slow pace. After a good amount of issues, the story still can be summed up as “Green Lantern Sojourner Mullein investigates the City Enduring”. The ideas are vast and interesting, but the sense of an ongoing story just now seems to be becoming concrete. I feel like this series will be better digested when it has gotten to where it’s going and looked back on to be like, “Oh, that’s why that was done…” and to appreciate the value of certain elements. But “in the moment” it is a little hard to pin down. Read Full Review
