    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd Oct 7, 2019

    The Green Lantern #12 is a true culmination of the previous 11 eleven issue. While the larger story is not over, this chapter or “season” is. Continued in Green Lantern: Blackstars, Hal Jordan's predicament will be revealed. This issue is a masterful segue and summation. Morrison proves he is still one of the best writers in comics.

    A lot of moving parts make for an exciting, if occasionally obscure, story that combines with Sharp's artistic chops to make for a great GL tale. Read Full Review

    It's not the clean cut ending I was hoping for, but this issue is nonetheless an exciting, action-packed, twist-filled cliffhanger for what comes next! Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Oct 2, 2019

    Reading a Grant Morrison comic, such as The Green Lantern #12, is like taking an unexpected bus ride " you know what it's like to ride a bus, but you have no idea where you're going and it can be more than a little disorienting. But when it goes in the right direction, you get an experience unlike anything else. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Corey Patterson Oct 2, 2019

    With this being the last issue of Grant Morrison's current run in the series, it makes sense that he and his team would spend time a large portion of the story tying up loose ends. Some authors do this in rushed or forceful way, but Morrison ties them up like a bow. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Oz Longworth Oct 3, 2019

    Bottom Line: Morrison and Sharp delivered an ending to this first "season" that absolutely sticks the landing and leaves us with an intense cliffhanger that sees Hal Jordan's undercover operation possibly going over the edge. Only this creative team could pull off True Detective meets Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Oct 2, 2019

    A decent sci-fi storythat fumbles a little at the end by advertising other comics. Not that I won'tbe reading those comics, I'm just saying. It seems cheap. Read Full Review

  • 6.0 - Chase Magnett Oct 2, 2019

    The action early in The Green Lantern #12 is a high point followed by plenty of exposition with varying mileage, even for Morrison diehards. This is a relatively weak ending to a series that is well past its best issues. Read Full Review
