    Comics Bulletin - Daniel Gehen Jun 4, 2020

    Not only is every matter a political one, but individuals no longer feel the freedom to change their position, even when presented with factual evidence that proves it to be wrong. Conviction is a strength, but willful ignorance is not. As a result, Far Sector is not just a good Green Lantern story, it is a great story that speaks to this moment in history. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Jun 4, 2020

    Far Sector might be one of the most important series on the shelf today. While it clearly went into things looking to discuss real-world issues, those issues have flared up and the comic has echoed moments we're seeing played out in real time. While the lack of escapism might seem like a negative, it in fact feels like a positive. The comic is helping me process reality and work through what we're seeing and experiencing. This series was already one of the best being released, it might now be one of the most important. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Jun 9, 2020

    With every issue Far Sector becomes a more fascinating comic book to be following. N.K. Jemisin and Jamal Campbell work on Far Sector #6 continues that trend. By slowing things down a bit Jemisin and Campbell give Green Lantern Jo Mullein the chance to take in everything she has experienced in this story thus far. It sets the stage for even more bigger things to take place in future issues as we uncover what is really going on in Far Sector along with Green Lantern Jo Mullein. Read Full Review

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Jun 3, 2020

    Overall, Far Sector #6 made the wait for this issue worth it. Real problems that we can connect with, and real problems that not many books out there are bold enough to address. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Jun 4, 2020

    For a comic about a race who has chosen to genetically-suppress their emotions, this issue is packed with emotion as Sojourner Mullein makes the questionable choice of giving into her feelings of loneliness as changing her relationship of Councillor Marth who is enjoying a bit of an emotional reprieve leading him to consider his recent actions which Sojourner found so despicable.

    Newsarama - David Pepose Jun 9, 2020

    With the one-two punch of COVID-19 and the death of George Floyd, Far Sector #6 doesn't just have its finger on the pulse of what's going on today" it's downright prescient. And perhaps most importantly, it doesn't make moves to try to solve today's injustices in the span of 20 pages, but instead allows itself " and its readers " the space to absorb and digest what's going on. It'll take a lot more than just one Green Lantern to solve the problems that our real world faces today, but if Sojourner Mullein can shed even a little bit of light to yield some deeper understanding, then you'll see why this book is more than just another superhero beat-'em-up.

    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd Jun 2, 2020

    Far Sector #6 is powerful issue. It develops some of the themes that have run through the entire series in a deeper way. Despite Jo's questionable decision to give in to her emotions, the exploration of emotions is smart and insightful. Every issue can't be like this, but it's great when it happens. The release of this issue coincides with a pivotal moment of civil unrest as well, amplifying the impact even more so. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Jun 3, 2020

    A good issue although it certainly sits on its hands a bit when it comes to the bigger plot. The journey Jo is going through is an incredible one and I can't wait to see how her actions as a cop on Earth and doing her best as a Green Lantern play out. Read Full Review

    I might not personally enjoy some of the story choices this issue, but I can see why they happened and all of it is done well. This is a good issue for the midway point of this series. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Jun 3, 2020

    Jamal Campbell delivers some beautiful, atmospheric visuals. The character moments are framed perfectly and the reader becomes immersed in the details of those moments. There is a grace and fluidity to the panels and that is nowhere more evident than in the action scenes at the end of the issue. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Hannibal Tabu Jun 7, 2020

    When taken as a whole, this series Far Sector is perhaps the boldest, freshest set of ideas DC Comics has seen since Grant Morrison was on JLA or Vertigo was at its height. Read Full Review
