    What's the future of the Lanterns with the central battery shattered? We may be starting to find out. This segment is fast-paced, but manages to tell a compelling story amid all the chaos and brings in some major players from around the DCU. Read Full Review

    There are times when characters or concepts need to get a refresh, or simply an approach from a different direction. Green Lantern is taking the familiar concepts and characters and opening them up to explore things in a different way and from a different point of view. With issue #7, we get the first inkling of how things might come back together, and at the same time continue to enjoy the journey without having the feeling that we are ready to return to "normal."

    This new run has been very engaging, and this issue is another gem in that run. Read Full Review

    Green Lantern #7 continues the series' two points of view format, revealing the fate of the other Lanterns and exploring the investigation of the Power Battery explosion simultaneously. Ironically both of those plot points (and the cover's Kilowog tease) take a backseat to more character-specific stories, and while the second half is well worth the trip, the first half isn't quite as successful.

    The Comicbook Dispatch - ozwoods Oct 20, 2021

    Green Lantern #7 takes an unexpected turn with its main story that heavily veers away from what the cover and synopsis are promoting. The “journey” that John Stewart has in the first half feels like an unnecessary side-quest, and the purpose of it will only become clear in later issues but not in this one. However, the second story is the stronger of the two with a compelling emotional center, some good tension and action, and a heartwarming conclusion. Here's hoping the next issue gets things back on track for John Stewart and the Green Lanterns. Read Full Review

    Green Lanterns is an entertaining read, but the duel nature of the setup prevents either from feeling especially significant. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Oct 19, 2021

    There are some cool concepts and ideas in both parts of this book, not to mention I'm digging the art all around, but the problem is the execution in telling these cool concepts feels lacking to me and it's going out of its way to be cryptic or drawn out and I feel like Geoffrey Thorne is too afraid to show his hand too early in this book but because of this, I think he's just going to confuse readers about what's going on in this book and ultimately lose them.

    Green Lantern #7 is more of the same, and that's not saying much. In reading Green Lantern for over forty years and being a major Green Lantern fan, I can only think of one time when I was this dissatisfied with the franchise. I hope DC is paying attention to what fans are saying about this book and give us something good after we endure the rest of this first arc. Four out of ten lanterns. Read Full Review
