    Artist Liam Sharp does one hell of a draw drawing this. He draws stuff that I have never seen in a comic book before. This is one hell of a collaboration between the two creators and I, for one, think it might be the best Green Lantern title has been in a long, long time. Read Full Review

    I've dipped in and out of Morrison/Sharp Green Lantern stories of late, but couldn't help but adore what they've accomplished here. Sharp is shocking the system with masterwork level art blending styles to make something incredible and surreal. Meanwhile, Morrison is crafting a hero's story that captures the worth of the man in the costume and also how empowering it is to have strong judgment and fearlessness. It's a strong example of how great Green Lantern can be in the right hands. Read Full Review

    While The Green Lantern Season 2 #3 doesn't involve many of the cosmic elements of the previous ones, it's no less ambitious and gives us a great look at exactly what's going into Hal's new role stationed on Earth. Thank Mogo this was expanded back to twelve issues! Read Full Review

    Green Lantern #3 will likely be the weirdest mainstream comic youll read all month. For readers who have been enjoying the Morrison/Sharp ride so far this is another wacky dose of unpredictability thats worth checking out. To further whet my appetite for this series, next issue will feature The Flash. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd May 6, 2020

    The Green Lantern: Season #3 tops the first two issues of the series easily. Perhaps, it's the more recognizable characters and familiar mileu of the Air Force Base so recognizable from Geoff Johns' important run on the character. More likely is Morrison's more intimate tale of Hal returning to the scene of so many victories and defeats. With that, comes the soul of the man who must reconnect with friends and colleagues. Morrison really makes it his own, however, when he has Hal threaten “Herc” with arrest…Hal is a policeman after all… Read Full Review

    Green Lantern: Season Two #3 is an interesting Earth-centric adventure that brings Hal back to familiar surroundings. While the main story doesn't further the second season's overall plot, the intriguing epilogue acts as the connective tissue that reveals the unlikely source of Green Lantern's mission. Liam Sharp provides some very artistic visuals which enhance the overall experience. I'm looking forward to what the creative team has in store for us with next issue's Flash team-up!

    Black Nerd Problems - Morgan Hampton May 6, 2020

    The Green Lantern Season Two #3 quadruples down on the craziness that this series promises to deliver. We've got alternate dimensions, sad clouds, and a little love story all fitting neatly in 32 pages. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson May 6, 2020

    In short, The Green Lantern: Season Two #3 continues the gleeful experimentation with format, characters and the vast continuity of Green Lantern that has ben a hallmark of this entire series, including the Blackstars miniseries and the previous volume of The Green Lantern, and delivers a coherent, exciting and interesting story in single-issue format.

    Comic Watch - Jeff Brister Jun 3, 2020

    Green Lantern Season Two #3 continues the fun and adventurous one-and-done storytelling of the series so far, but Morrison's script is brought down by so-so art by Liam Sharp, who handles art and colors this issue. Read Full Review

    This is a bit of a mixed bag, and while it features some stunning art and delightful moments, the unevenness keeps it from achieving greatness. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose May 6, 2020

    On the one hand, it's always welcome to see creators try something different, and to try to flex new muscles - that's honestly been the name of Grant Morrison's game for much of his career - but the problem with taking risks is that sometimes they don't work out. Liam Sharp's new art style for The Green Lantern: Season Two is just one example - this is very much a guy who is superb at the pencilling and inking side of the comics production business, but he's still got a ways to go to catch up as a colorist. Unfortunately, some experiments don't turn out the way you'd hoped - but rarely do they result in being a dealbreaker as much as The Green Lantern: Season Two #3. Read Full Review
