    Green Lantern #41 perfectly showcases Hal's new life as a renegade, but the cliffhanger lands with a dud. Read Full Review

    Now, things are still being set up, so this might not be the most interesting issue, but it certainly gets your attention and makes you want to keep reading, especially since Billy Tan is just rocking this artwork.  Venditti and Tan are truly a power team who just keep making this book more and more interesting.

    A fantastic starting point, this issue not only has me excited for what's to come, but also has me wanting to go back and see what I've missed. Read Full Review

    The new direction for GREEN LANTERN is bold and unique. It's quite the departure from where the book was at pre-CONVERGENCE, but it's a really interesting direction. The creative team is spinning this book into something completely different. It's not the Hal Jordan we're used to, but let's face it, this character has been through some insane changes over the past 30 years, from Parallax to The Spectre to dead... twice. The one flaw with the book is that the reader is left to assume a bit too much about Hal's place, but aside from that, this was one tremendous first issue. Read Full Review

    Green Lantern#41 is a solid and entertaining book. Robert Vendetti and Billy Tan have done an excellent job craftingan issue that both continues the story woven beforehand while inviting new or lapsed readers into the engaging narrative. While some elements are perhaps overly familiar to fans of space opera, it's nice to have the base established before the story pushes onward. Tan's artwork is gorgeous and fun, providing dynamic and inventive visuals without becoming overly detailed. Read Full Review

    The ending is pretty good as well, offering an unexpected twist that should establish the upcoming Green Lantern: The Lost Army pretty well and itll be a book that should be interesting to read especially given what the title is implying (and that Cullen Bunn is on board which also helps because Bunn is an awesome writer), but for now, the core Green Lantern series is in a very strong place indeed with the strong creative team of Robert Venditti, Billy Tan, Mark Irwin, Alex Sinclair and Tony Avina. Lets hope they can keep this momentum going. Read Full Review

    Green Lantern #41 is a fun action packed adventure that serves as a great way to introduce the new status quo for Hal Jordan for the immediate future.  Billy Tan creates a visually engaging science fiction adventure canvas which helps being Robert Venditti's script to life.  With the Corps gone Hal Jordan is even more alone in the universe than he thought, and with only Darlene as his company this new chapter in Hal's life is going to be an exciting ride.  Four out of five lanterns.

    Green Lantern #41 was an enjoyable read that set up what Hal's role in the galaxy is now while leading up to a wild cliffhanger. The ending has me more excited for the series than I was up until the last page, and I'll be diving into Green Lantern going forward. Venditti and Tan are a good team and if ring slingin' is your thing, Green Lantern #41 is rock solid. Read Full Review

    The "Green Lantern" franchise has ebbed and flowed for the past couple years, so it seems as though it was only a matter of time until we had a "Green Lantern on the run" storyline. Luckily, Venditti, Tan and crew add to the mystery in space theme of the post-"Convergence" DC Universe by not revealing everything right away in "Green Lantern" #41. Hal Jordan has a new purpose and new trappings but, at the heart of this first issue, he is still a man with an amazingly powerful weapon trying to do the right thing, at least as he understands it. Venditti has taken Jordan out of the Corps; now, it's up to his collaboration with Tan to make it exciting. Read Full Review

    The final page is ripped straight from Star Wars, Episode IV: A New Hope, but it sets the tone for this new era of Green Lantern. Hopefully, the execution will eventually match the potential here. Read Full Review
