Outnumbered but never outwitted or outfought, John Stewart leads the last of the Green Lanterns against insurmountable odds. Facing a bloodthirsty Khund cult dedicated to the “God in Red,” the onetime Green Lantern shows that even without a ring or the Corps to back him up, he’s still a force to be reckoned with!
Plus, from the pages of Young Justice, Teen Lantern teams up with Mogo, and Hal Jordan reconnects with Oliver Queen after the power battery goes down!

    But Why Tho? - Collier "CJ" Jennings Feb 9, 2021

    Future State: Green Lantern #2explores the Green Lanterns in DC's Future State universe, putting the spotlight on each Lantern and what they mean to certain fans. With Thorne and Soy set to boardGreen Lantern in March, I hope they continue to push the Green Lantern Corps into a bold new frontier. Read Full Review

    There are a lot of characters here, some of whom feel like throwaways, but it makes a good case for Thorne as the franchise's next lead writer. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Timala Elliott Feb 9, 2021

    Robert Venditti creates a pretty interesting storyline. Hal is met with some pretty alarming situations, and I'm curious to see how this will all play out in later series. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Kendra Hale Feb 24, 2021

    A decent read with great characters, both old and new. A setup for what is to come in 2021 for the Green Lantern Corps and a tease of the future, indeed. Read Full Review

    Just like before, if you're a Green Lantern fan, this is a pull list must, and the future looks awfully bright for the ring slingers. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Feb 9, 2021

    It'd have been nice to see some Lantern slinging action in this book while the writers build toward a past catalyst that hasn't played out yet. This is a risky storytelling device from DC, but it could work out in the long run. But unless you're a major Green Lantern fan there's not enough substance here to warrant tracking down.

    AIPT - Ben Morin Feb 9, 2021

    At the end of the day, this begs the question of, "who were these stories for?" While they do show the resolve and will the various Lantern's possess, they rarely offer anything new to the mythos. Reserving any use of the Green Lantern rings until the very end of the second issue becomes even more confusing, especially for new readers who might pick up these collections and wonder why the series is even called "Green Lantern." Unfortunately, these tales do little to engage with new fans and will only confuse and dishearten current Green Lantern readers. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Feb 9, 2021

    While the art is strong throughout all three stories, I found it hard to care about the main chapter of this book and the backups just came off as something tacked on without a lot of thought behind it because the timelines between them feel weird and how our heroes are maintaining their power feels off. Just a lot of this book didn't seem to mesh and didn't seem to do a lot with the page space they were given. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Matthew Sibley Feb 9, 2021

    The main story in Future State: Green Lantern #2 picks up in the midst of the ongoing planetary evacuation while John Stewart has been captured by the Khund cult, but Geoffrey Thorne's scripting never stirs any emotion. Read Full Review

    Blog Of Oa - Myron Rumsey Feb 9, 2021

    Future State: Green Lantern #2 is another weak entry in the Future State event. Backup stories should never have to rescue the main feature, yet both issues in this series have failed in that regard. At $5.99 readers should rightly expect a strong story, and this just doesn't have it. Four out of ten lanterns. Read Full Review
