Betrayals of cosmic consequence abound! And why is Earth's sun turning orange? We can only hope Superman figures that one out before it's too late...

    On Comics Ground - Timothy Quail Dec 4, 2019

    This is a perfect comic. It is my pick of the year for 2019. Allowing Grant Morrison to run free in the Green Lantern universe was the best idea DC has had in a long time. This comic builds the mythos in some new and interesting ways, but also has the trademark postmodernism that Morrison is known for. Read Full Review

    Green Lantern: Blackstars #2 is even better than last issue. Morrison touches on so many ideas that will most likely remain undeveloped, but they enhance the "new world" created by the Miracle Machine. It's Morrison's love of the DC Universe that shines through and create the sense of fun with his references as well as being able to get to the core of Jordan's character. Read Full Review

    One thing is clear " as a bridge arc before the next season, this is succeeding massively and proving just how big Morrison's vision for the Green Lantern Corps truly is. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Corey Patterson Dec 4, 2019

    GREEN LANTERN: BLACKSTARS #2, being a part of a 3-part miniseries, speeds things along at a quick past, but it does so without leaving readers behind. The story is easy enough to follow and keeps us engaged with the main plot points. Read Full Review

    Morrison delivers one of his strongest issue's yet in his Green Lantern saga. And he makes it even more fun with a great takedown of his co-workers. Things are gonna be weird at the DC Comics Christmas party this year… Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Dec 4, 2019

    An overly-wordy look at how Belzebeth went fromspace-Lady Dracula to second in command of the Blackstars. Plus, a littlesarcastic commentary on current-day comic books! You gotta love that. Read Full Review

    Morrison and Xermanico have effectively taken what could have been a pointless time killer into a vital and necessary component of this era of Green Lantern. Read Full Review

    Blog Of Oa - Myron Rumsey Dec 4, 2019

    Overall, Green Lantern: Blackstars #2 is a fine middle chapter in this altered reality tale, albeit one that doesn't move the plot along a great deal. I quite enjoyed Morrison's commentary on DC in this and the backstory of Belzebeth was interesting even though it seems at this point something we didn't need to know. Read Full Review

    This issue has great moments marred by an overwhelming amount of exposition and plot, and here's hoping #3 finds the balance of the series' debut. Read Full Review
