    You Don't Read Comics - Rick Lopez Aug 6, 2019

    Grant Morrison and Giuseppe Camuncoli work together and deliver an excellent detour away from the main storyline with a more quiet issue that only Morrison could produce. With yet another Green Lantern issue right around the corner, Morrison and Sharp will continue to push the mythos and the medium to new and exciting areas. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Jul 31, 2019

    I knew Morrison was great at space stuff, but this issue proves that when he's on, he's great at any genre and I hope he's planning a long stay in the Green Lantern corner of the universe. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Deejay Dayton Aug 2, 2019

    The family dynamics in the annual really give the story its impact, while Air Wave helps out in the action parts, as he and Hal try to get them all back to reality, from the weird zone they find themselves in. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Justin Partridge Aug 1, 2019

    If fans have been wanting a bit more of Hal's family, along with the cosmic insanity that is his job, then The Green Lantern Annual #1 is the annual to beat this week. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd Aug 2, 2019

    VerdictThe Green Lantern Annual #1 does what an annual should do these days: it tells a story outside the regular arc; reintroduce an old character; and provide some insight into the character as well as create a launching point for future stories. While ticking off these boxes, the ideas mix together for an extremely fun single issue tale. Read Full Review

    Blog Of Oa - Myron Rumsey Jul 31, 2019

    The Green Lantern Annual #1 is not a "not to be missed" issue, but it is a fun and entertaining adventure that shows that the Jordan family puts the fun in dysfunctional. Air Wave returns to modern continuity and we get all the wild and crazy elements that Grant Morrison is known for in a nicely illustrated package. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jul 31, 2019

    This issue had an old school vibe from the family aspect of the story to the cool art throughout.  All in all, I can recommend this issue easily to fans of Morrison's regular run, but also to those who may have bailed or never jumped on as well. Read Full Review

What works in Hal's favor however, is his family shares his trademark fearlessness. Hal's family learns first hand what it takes to overcome great fear. Read Full Review

    411Mania - Steve Gustafson Aug 1, 2019

    It's a solid story with an old school feel to it that's fun but ultimately a forgettable ride. It's one of those books that's made for reading in the backseat of the car while your family is driving to the beach and after you're done reading it you leave it at the beach house for the next guest to peruse.

    GWW - Deron Generally Jul 30, 2019

    Guiseppe Camuncoli's art is great. The character details are worth experiencing and all of the art is fantastic. I wish there was more to the story because I bet Camuncoli could have done some amazing things for this annual. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Ethan Maddux Aug 1, 2019

    The Green Lantern Annual #1 is a fun, though slightly underwhelming issue. My biggest problem is that the art isn't up to par with what I've come to expect. Additionally, the story is a bit more grounded than it usually is, and as a result, feels a bit more standard. Regardless, it's still a solid superhero story full of great moments. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Jul 31, 2019

    This annual isn't a bad story per se, but it doesn't contribute much to the overall story and is a little too weird to justify buying on its own. It will probably read better when included in collected format. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Jonathan Cadotte Aug 1, 2019

    There's just not enough here for anyone other than die-hard fans of The Green Lantern. It's not a bad book by any means, but there's no shaking the overbearing mediocreness of it all. Read Full Review
