The epic conclusion to this twisted rewrite of DC Universe history! Will Hal Jordan and his fascist band of Blackstars sublimate the entire universe to the diamond will of Controller Mu? Can the timeline ever be restored before more of Earth's heroes perish?

    Morrison spent the first year building a mythology and a whole new cast of supporting players, and it seems like season two is going to pit them against each other in a cosmic war like we haven't seen in a long time. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Timothy Quail Jan 31, 2020

    The interlude between The Green Lantern seasons comes to an end. While this issue is not as heavy as the previous two it is still a really fun read. Green Lantern Blackstars, ended up being the best mini series that DC put on the stands. Read Full Review

    Morrison brilliantly demonstrates the tensions that inevitably arise between the new generation and the old guard, the restless and the unmovable. Read Full Review

    Morrison does a great job providing misdirection from Hal's actual endgame. It sets up his twist wonderfully and allows Hal to pull out a victory all stemming from the character traits that define Green Lantern 2814.1. Green Lantern: Blackstars #3 is a worthy finale to the interlude between seasons one and two of The Green Lantern. Read Full Review

    Green Lantern: Blackstars #3 is a fitting end to this three month detour, wrapping up everything with a nice little bow and setting things right for the start of "Season 2". Read Full Review

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj Feb 4, 2020

    At first blush I thought 'a re-written universe as a trap ... coooool!'. But then as I mulled it over, I thought it ended up being a bit silly. A bit overdone. A bit too much? That is no knock on Xermanico's art. The whole thing is laid out opulently with wild visuals. Stunning. Read Full Review

    The story also manages to surprise at several points, but the battles themselves are a bit lacking, both in action and in terms of visuals. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Jan 29, 2020

    This spin-off never really found its way as Morrison went too abstract for a mini-series that needed a stronger focus. Ive still got high hopes for Season 2, but this was a disappointing side story. Read Full Review
