    But Why Tho? - CJ Feb 12, 2020

    The Green Lantern, Season Two #1 is not only a perfect jumping-on point for new readers, but it also manages to set up a new story for Hal Jordan utilizing existing mythology. I can't wait to see where Morrison, Sharp, and Oliff go from here. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Feb 12, 2020

    Grant Morrison never quite left, even between the "Seasons" of his Green Lantern epic (thanks to an excellent bridge miniseries), but he blows the doors off the first issue of his return, The Green Lantern: Season 2 #1, like he's been resting and coming up with new ideas for a while.

    Sequential Planet - Geoffrey Luu Feb 19, 2020

    The Green Lantern: Season Two #1 is by itself a fun cosmic action-adventure story that also provides a glimpse into the future of the Green Lantern mythos. Casual fans of the Corps or of Hal Jordan will probably want to jump on board with Morrison's work here; readers who have followed Morrison's Lantern from the start through Blackstars will likely be excited by this issue and developments to follow. Overall, it's definitely worth picking up. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Cody White Feb 12, 2020

    The Green Lantern Season 2 #1(Morrison, Sharp, Oliff, Orzechowski) is here and it is probably exactly what you would expect. It's strange, weird fun with amazingly detailed artwork and moves in a direction that keeps you constantly off-balance. Read Full Review

    The Green Lantern: Season Two #1 is a good jumping on point for anyone who is interested in seeing what this creative team is doing with the cosmic corner of the DCU and missed out on the first season. Grant Morrison appears to be redefining the Green Lantern Corps and this is ground zero where the seeds of change are being planted. Liam Sharp has returned from the break and is running wild with some of the most beautiful work seen in any book by any publisher on the stands. Read Full Review

    Readers who aren't caught up might be left scratching their heads a bit, but if you have been onboard for Morrison's journey into the heart of human willpower, then you'll be satisfied with this chapter. Read Full Review

    Green Lantern Corps - w-west Feb 12, 2020

    Season 2 issue #1 gives us a great look at all the things Liam excels at. His dynamic camera angles and bold line work have always provided greatness for my eyeballs, but here he shines (with many thanks to Steve Oliff on colors) as his crowd shots rival Jimenez, his action panels sincerely draw fear even when the gist of the situation is still playing out to the reader.

    Major Spoilers - Jonathan Cadotte Feb 16, 2020

    The Green Lantern: Season 2 #1 does not work well as a stand alone comic book. But, it does work well as a season premier. Liam Sharpe's art is a mixed-bag that is at times stunning and at other times, busy and uncomfortable. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd Feb 13, 2020

    Overall, The Green Lantern: Season Two #1 is an average start to a new story arc. While the main idea of the Young Guardians is intriguing and potentially concept shattering to the Green Lantern Corps, it doesn't go very far here. Coupled with the exposition on Mother Juna, the issue comes across as establishing shots of the larger story to come. I have no doubt that it will improve, but this is a lackluster start to Season Two. Read Full Review
