A Guardian of the Universe lies dead, and the universe teeters on the brink of war. As the summit of the United Planets and the Green Lantern Corps falls into chaos, an even bigger threat looms. With John Stewart reassigned to the role of an ambassador, a surprise appearance by one of the newest Green Lanterns may be all that stands between the Corps and oblivion. (Spoiler: it’s Far Sector’s Jo Mullein.)

    Black Nerd Problems - Morgan Hampton May 5, 2021

    I'm really loving how this series is wasting no time ramping up the stakes, and how after the second issue, it seems things are going in a different direction than I initially thought. This series is safe in Thorne, Soy, and Santucci's hands. My mouth is full of popcorn and my hands buttered up while I wait to see how these characters navigate these unprecedented situations they find themselves in. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea May 4, 2021

    You'll be taken through a series of highs and lows in this issue and it will grab your attention and at times heartstrings and won't let them go until the end of the book and man it had me compelled with not only what our heroes were up to but where they'll be going in the future. The art looks great, the characters are well defined and I can't wait to get to the next issue of this book. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Collier "CJ" Jennings May 4, 2021

    Green Lantern #2 continues to shape the future of the Green Lantern mythos, with a shocking last-page twist that hews close to the events ofFuture State. Multiple story threads are laid out within this issue that set up a wealth of stories, and I can't wait to see how they play out. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd May 4, 2021

    Even better than last issue, Green Lantern #2 demonstrates that there's a lot of room in the Universe for the concept and a lot of new ground to be covered in this series. The Green Lantern concept has operated on the notion that it's not just one single individual. Hal Jordan may have been the focus for many of the characters' 80 plus year history, but this series shows that there's more characters and ideas to be explored through the core concept of a sentient being with a power ring fueled force of will.

    I'm cautiously optimistic about the direction of Green Lantern provided Thorne doesn't rush to get to the Future State time period. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield May 4, 2021

    Two issues in, Geoffrey Thorne's Green Lantern run feels less like a fresh start and more like a nuclear bomb detonating in the middle of the franchise. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez May 8, 2021

    Green Lantern #2 is a game changing comic book for the entire franchise. Geoffrey Thorne, Dexter Soy, and Marco Santucci knocked it out of the park with the impact of the events that take place are felt by the end of this issue. The character work for John Stewart and the Guardians of the Universe further drove home how this is a can't miss issue for Green Lantern fans. Read Full Review

    Aside from the incongruity of the art, "Green Lantern" #2 does just about everything you'd want to push the series into surprising places. Read Full Review

    This story probably should have been the 1st issue. Nonetheless, I really enjoyed Green Lantern #2. The ending has a real OMG moment. Read Full Review

    A good follow up that helps bring forth a big shift in status quo that feels new and promising, while also setting up plenty to keep you reading for next time. Read Full Review

    A really nice mix of grounded, Corps-based set up followed by some truly insane upheaval. Works really well to set up where this series is probably going. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Jonathan Cadotte May 9, 2021

    Green Lantern #2 builds itself up with the promise of shaking things up and taking the Green Lantern Corps in a new direction, it then fumbles this by falling back on an old story beat that's been used just too many times. Read Full Review

    Blog Of Oa - Myron Rumsey May 12, 2021

    Green Lantern #2 shakes up the Green Lantern universe in a lot of ways, some interesting and some which leave me shaking my head. Most Green Lantern fans have grown tired of some of the tropes that Geoffrey Thorne trots out. In all honesty, I'm not interested in reading about Green Lanterns without their rings, nor do I find the characters that he's chosen to focus on particularly compelling. Despite the nice art, I don't find this series one that has legs. Six out of ten lanterns. Read Full Review

    BGCP - Michael Lennox May 6, 2021

    The sooner they dump Teen Lantern in crappy Saturday Morning cartoon solving mysteries with her pet ferret and Tom Selleck the better. It's better than issue one.. but you could argue that Attack of the Clones is better than the Phantom Menace and forget that beside Empire they are a long way short. So for my review of Green Lantern #2, I give the story 2 stars and the artwork 4 stars! Do you agree? Read Full Review

    Forces Of Geek - Lenny Schwartz May 5, 2021

    The story here bored me. It feels unfocused and shoddy. I was trying to find an entry point so I could enjoy this, but it wasn't there. The art is pretty good but unfortunately, that is all this comic book has going for it. Read Full Review
