    What can I say? Green Lantern is still the most tantalizing treat on the comics shelves. What Johnss is doing here and over in Action Comics is mouth-watering comics goodness. Read Full Review

    The continuing saga in the pages of Green Lantern continues to deliver in the aftermath of the Sinestro Corps War. Geoff Johns is at his best, his writing is excellent, the story and plot wildly compelling and its only getting better with each issue. Add in Mike McKones fantastic artwork and youve got one hell of an issue. This book, no doubt DCs best, continues to deliver on all fronts and the best part? We are just getting started. This is my Pick of the Week. Read Full Review

    Johns was back to form this month and the Alpha Lantern story is actually going somewhere now. There were a lot of subplots going on in the background here as well and all of them quite interesting, especially the 'evil' Guardian one. Read Full Review

    Green Lantern #27 is another well done issue. Green Lantern continues to be DC's best and most consistent read. Johns is simply on fire with this title. There is no doubt that what Johns is doing will lead him to being the definitive Green Lantern writer as he has impacted the Green Lantern mythos in a way that few writers have. I definitely recommend giving Green Lantern a try. Even if you aren't much of a DC fan, as long as you dig action and Science Fiction then I think you will enjoy this title. Read Full Review

    Mckone continues to impress but I am beginning to miss Ivan Reis. For years he was the main artist on the book and his style is grittier and more realistic. Do not discount Mckone’s skills though! He may have simpler more cartoony style but once again his layout and kinetic action easily draws the reader into the book. Read Full Review
