Fan-favorite artist Ethan Van Sciver (GREEN LANTERN: REBIRTH) delivers an action-packed tale that pits Hal Jordan against the deadly new Shark as alien abductions across the West Coast increase dramatically! But what do these E.T.s want, and what strange events in the past are they responsible for?

    In The End: A much better issue than I thought it was going to be. The story was amusing and a lot of fun. Ethan Van Sciver definitely brought his "A game" this issue, and Hal looked great. I am interested to see where this story is going and wonder if it is going to tie into Infinite Crisis or not. Read Full Review

    Between van Scivers art and Johns pitch-perfect script, Green Lantern is literally the best it has ever been. So maybe Geoff Johns has cloned himself, or sold his soul to the Prince of Darkness, but when hes writing comics that are this freaking goodwho really cares? Read Full Review

    Overall, I found this issue an improvement on the last one. A lot more happened in this issue, setting up a lot more to happen next issue, and an old joke of a villain was given a new deadly lease on life. Now we get to wait a month to find out how the aliens plan on altering Hal Jordanand how he plans on stopping them. I cant wait. Read Full Review
