    Granted, a few moments might take a re-read to fully digest, but it's well worth the time and effort, and ultimately rewarding as the possibilities going forward are just as exciting. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Rick Lopez Apr 3, 2019

    Morrison, Sharp, and Oliff work together to make something truly magical for longtime fans of the Lantern mythos as well as anyone looking for a new point to jump in. Their ability to bring entirely new aspects to this series while still using deep cuts and continuity long since forgotten displays the affinity and love for these characters and the medium as a whole from all parties. The Green Lantern continues to set itself apart from not only its predecessors but from any other book currently on the market. Read Full Review

    Blog Of Oa - Myron Rumsey Apr 3, 2019

    The Green Lantern #6 is an amazing conclusion (maybe!) to the Controller Mu story that sets the series up for what might be an interesting bit of introspection as Hal Jordan is sent on a whole new journey. The creative team is going to have fun with what's ahead and I can't wait to see where the book goes. The Green Lantern is a big bright shiny emerald light in the DC Comics catalog right now!

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Apr 3, 2019

    Whatever bizarre cosmic walkabout he's planning for Hal on those final pages, this is easily the most invested I've been in a Green Lantern run since Geoff Johns' days. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - John Jack Apr 8, 2019

    I am a little sad to say the prolific Steve Wands' letter work is perfectly serviceable, but a couple steps down from industry legend Tom Orzechowski, who is taking a couple issues off presumably to work on Spawn #200, a series he helped launch. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Apr 3, 2019

    Even if everything isnt completely clear this issue, Green Lantern is the most ambitious and challenging superhero comic DC is putting out right now. While its not the strongest installment, theres enough here to be excited about where Morrison and Sharp are taking the title next. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Corps - Anthony Thornton Apr 2, 2019

    Green Lantern #6 is an exciting conclusion to the first chapter of Controller Mu's larger story. The artwork heightens the tension that is inherent to an issue where Hal Jordan has to kill Adam Strange. I've read this issue 3 times now, and each time I like it even more than the previous read. You are sucked in from the start and it leaves you wondering what is next for Mu. Before we find out, we need a break and I am very excited to see what Morrison, Sharp, and Oliff do with our new big bad and the emerald wasteland Hal finds himself trapped in. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Apr 3, 2019

    I feel the same way after I read an issue of The Green Lantern as I do after watching an episode of Twin Peaks. I am not 100% sure what I saw or what it was about, but I liked it. We saw some crazy visuals and it had familiar story points, and then it went in an odd direction. And, much like a Twin Peaks episode, I immediately wanted to talk with somebody about it. The Green Lantern #6 is a great "episode" in this series; if you have been liking it so far, then you will adore this issue. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Apr 8, 2019

    The Green Lantern #6 was another fantastic issue by Grant Morrison and Liam Sharp. These two just continue to outdo themselves with each passing issue. They understand how to escalate things quickly and play up the drama of different moments. With Hal Jordan now stuck inside the mysterious world of his Green Lantern ring who knows what will happen next. And its that state of unknown that will continue to make The Green Lantern one of DC Comics best comic books on the market right now. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Oz Longworth Apr 4, 2019

    Bottom Line: It's rare that a comic builds up to a face-off or a pivotal turn of events and actually delivers well. If this weren't already an entertaining book, that would be enough to justify putting your money here. Morrison still has a winner on his hands. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Apr 3, 2019

    There's a stylistic gimmick happening here that somewhat supersedes actual Green Lantern characters or continuity. If you enjoy the gimmick, like I do, then you could enjoy this book. If you're Eric, then this series will leave you furious. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Philip Schweier Apr 3, 2019

    Asfor where the story leads, I am uncertain. The future of Green Lantern seemsless about traditional super-heroing, and more about a grand cosmic adventure.But thats par for the course at DC Comics these days. Everything must be doneon an epic scale, because small, personal stories to which every reader canrelate just doesnt measure up anymore. Read Full Review
