    Judd Winick brilliantly returned John Stewart as Green Lantern with no surprise. He did not just say, "Hey, he's back". It took him about two years to expertly set up the situation.

The artwork is awesome but the color needs to be brighter. Read Full Review

However instead of celebrating John Stewart's return to the Green Lantern fold, we get an issue that seems bound and determined to play up the idea that our heroes live in a world where it's a continuing discovery of man's depravity.

However, I've reached the stage where I'd welcome a pointless slugfest, as Judd Winick's world view is utterly depressing, and this series seems to have forgotten the notion of escapist entertainm Read Full Review
