As the dust settles after the battle with the Anti-Guardian, John Stewart, Jo Mullein, and the rest of the Corps pick up the pieces and adjust to their new status quo. The day might be saved, but there's still plenty of work to be done. Everything you know about Green Lanterns is about to change!

    Several of the book's hooks offer all sorts of intriguing possibilities, and it would seem the future is awfully bright for the Lanterns once more. Read Full Review

    This series seems to be coming to a close for now, with an open-ended cliffhanger, but it's going out with one of the strongest issues of the run. Read Full Review

    This book takes a big swing, but it's good to see it connect after the long road getting here. This is a big, fun comic with ambition, and that's great to see. Read Full Review

    At the beginning of the series it was obvious Thorne was going for something different with the run of Green Lantern. Now that we've come to Green Lantern #12 we can see how he's delivered. Often, new takes on concepts destroy. Thorne has disrupted a lot, but in the end we have a Corps, or rather multiple Corps that have a lot of gas in the tank. This is a great launching point for a myriad of series. Read Full Review

    The ending felt like it was set up in a way that Thorne can continue the story later or gives a decent conclusion to this arc before a new creative team arrives. Its an ok payoff for readers whove stuck with the title, but this arc ultimately wasnt worth tracking down for those waiting on the trade. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Apr 12, 2022

    With some great art throughout, we see how Geoffrey Thorne's Green Lantern story comes to a quick close, where some status quos are set back to where they were but we're still left with some outstanding questions about the fates of some of our favorite lanterns, while Simon Baz feels like he continues to get the short end of the stick. There's definitely some cool stuff here but I wish it felt more natural and better explained overall. Read Full Review

    Mike Atiyeh's phenomenal colors can't save this mostly forgettable finale. Read Full Review

    In the end, Green Lantern #12 falls flat with what feels like half-thought-out decisions and retreads of where we've already been before. It reinforces to me why Geoffrey Thorne is not the right writer to lead this franchise, but sadly it looks like we're going to get more in the “John Stewart and the Emerald Knights” book that we're going to be getting. Hopefully, there will be more than one Green Lantern series rising out of the rubble of this one, but for now, I'm glad it's over. Five out of ten lanterns. Read Full Review
