    That doesn't mean it isn't exciting, though " it most certainly is, and Doug Mahnke's artwork makes it even better. This is a great way to kick off the storyline. Read Full Review

    The War of the Green Lanterns is shaping up to be a three-sided war. The Green Lanterns from Earth seem to be hunted by Krona and his crew as well as the faction that splinters off from these two issues. The crossover is showing a lot of promise and I am enjoying it more than Blackest Night in the early going. There is a lot to like here and I am finding the presentation to be fairly straight forward even for a newcomer to Green Lantern. These issues are worth checking out but there does seem to be more meat to the plot in the Green Lantern title over the Green Lantern Corps one. I definitely recommend these two issues.

    Green Lantern #64 is fantastic first issue to War of the Green Lanterns. Not only does it effectively set the stage for all levels of readers, new or old, but it's also a well-paced, action-packed opening that puts into perspective the threat level of this event's main antagonist. You can't really ask for more from an opening chapter. Read Full Review

    The one downside to this first chapter of "War of the Green Lanterns" is the strong insinuation that we're heading towards a partial reset of the property. Hal Jordan sans Guardians and a yellow impurity might not be the end result of this story, but even the hint that it's heading that way is disappointing. The past couple of years of "Green Lantern" have explored new ground, characters, and concepts; hopefully this is just a tease from Johns and he's not able to revert the title to a much older status quo. For now, though, it's a strong enough chapter on its own that I'll stick around to see just what Johns and company really have in store for us. Read Full Review
