    Grant Morrison brings the curtain down on his Green Lantern run"and potentially on Hal Jordan's tenure as the lead Lantern"with an epic final issue where he finally does what we've all been waiting for. Grant Morrison goes full Morrison. Read Full Review

    In the end The Green Lantern: Season Two #12 might seem anticlimactic in some ways with no clear ending, no sense of how this particular baton is being handed over. That in itself may be one last piece of commentary on the state of DC Comics as a whole. Hal Jordan has once again saved everyone, not just our universe, but the entire omniverse this time around. For now, this space cowboy rides off into the sunset looking for more adventure. Nine out of ten lanterns. Read Full Review

    Maybe with a complete read of the entire run and no monthly spacing this may have felt more special, but this first read of issue #12 doesn't live up to the hype. Read Full Review

    Hector has created chaos on Athmoora. The reader gets a bit of his backstory, including an explanation of his animosity toward Hal. Meanwhile, Hal must battle Hectors army and try rescue his friends. After a devastating loss, a new enemy appears. When they strike a deadly bargain with Hal for the salvation of Athmoora, he must find a way to deliver.The Story: There is a lot happening in this issue. Unfortunately, at several points, the plot gets muddled. While I enjoyed the overall tale, it felt rushed. As this is the grand finale of the series, I would have preferred a longer issue that fleshed out the narrative more.Liam Sharp provides a beautifully drawn issue with an intense color palette of reds and greens. The intricate use of detail is inspiring. Each panel draws the eye and elicits an emotional response. The artwork here is magnificent.8/10 Read Full Review

    The Green Lantern: Season Two #12 wraps up the series with nods to whats come before, but it doesnt feel as unifying as it should. The art is fabulous and is probably worth the price of admission alone. If you want to see how this series wraps up, youll want to get this issue, but its not going to convince you to go back and buy the rest of the series. Read Full Review

    Without spoiling too much of the ending, Jordan gets his ring back, Hammond's intellect is consumed by his partners and defeated, and Jordan makes a deal with the Golden Ones to give them an alternate food supply if they promise to go away.Bits and Pieces:Green Lantern Season 2, #12 is a simple alien invasion story made ponderous by overly-complicated plotting, dialog that reads like an unpublished Shakespearean play, and good art that ultimately makes the issue more burdensome than it already is.

    The Green Lantern: Season Two ends the way it's always been: impenetrable, weird and determined to only make sense existentially. Read Full Review
