    The Green Lantern #9 is a feast for the mind as well as the eyes. Grant Morrison again adds breadth to the DC cosmic universe by bringing the past forward and reminding the reader of the incredible richness to be found in the tiniest nook and cranny of the DCU's history. Along with Liam Sharp's stunning visual this is another not to be overlooked issue of one of DC's best comics. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Legion - Rob Reads Comics Jul 3, 2019

    I love how this issue is essentially two stories colliding into one, it really raises the stakes and paints the picture that is the QWA-MAN! It will take an army to stop him! This book continues to be the best book on the shelves. Morrison and Sharp leave nothing on the table, A mix of a maddening story-line, witty dialogue and masterful art. This issue is absolutely a must read and can't be missed! Read Full Review

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

    While the first season nears its finale, one can only hope this duo will be inspired to carry the title passed the initially solicited 24 issue run. In what has been affectionately coined All-Star Green Lantern, fans support and affinity for this title is at an all-time high with this unique brand of space justice. Morrison and Sharp continue to drive home the modern day classic. Not only a high point for the Green Lantern mythos and DC comics currently, but a series and run that will stand the test of time.

    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd Jul 6, 2019

    VerdictAfter a tilting entry point, The Green Lantern #9 really picks up as it layers the plot with Multiversal references, including Morrison's own Society of Super-Heroes. The mystery of the dead super-beings is just the first aspect, but it goes beyond that as Morrison weaves in his penchant for DC Comics lore and the Multiverse. It's going to be a weird, fun and nostalgic ride! Read Full Review

    Morrison's approach to the series, with a bunch of done-in-one installments, has done a great job in shrinking the scale of the stories without sacrificing stakes. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jul 3, 2019

    This issue is a fantastic looking bunch of nonsense.  Grant Morrison is too busy throwing obscure references at the reader to tell a coherent story and I've pretty much had enough.  Take the Morrison name off this book and I bet all those scores above mine would plummet very quickly!  It does look great though and that is almost all of my score.
