    Overall, this is one Green Lantern fan who is quite happy. Since DC decided to re-energize the Green Lantern franchise beginning with Green Lantern: Rebirth, every single GL title since has been a solid hit. This is yet another one and, dare I say it, quite possibly the best one of the bunch. Read Full Review

    The verdict? If you are a GL fan, give this book a shot. If you are not into Green Lantern, you should still take a peek " you might just like what you see. As an added bonus, many retailers have a free plastic GL power ring to give away with each copy sold. Ask your comic shop about it if you make a buy. Im wearing mine as I type this. Im wearing my GL shirt too, but thats just a coincidence " I swear! Read Full Review

    Patrick Gleason compliments Gibbons' dark and grimy tone with shadowy artwork that's enhanced by the inks of Prentis Rollins. The deeply shaded muscle tone and hyperdramatic cast to the characters swallows moose Baumann's colors that include ubiquitous glowing greens. That's an asset for the atmosphere, but a deficit for those looking for swashbuckling space tales. Read Full Review

    The character art is quite functional, and does not detract from the story. However, as a strictly personal taste, I found the full facial figure of Guy on the credits page to be a little to stylized for me. Skilled work, especially with the shadow, and the emotion conveyed, but not my personal taste. Not a reason, however, to keep from buying the comic. I understood what was going on in every panel of this issue, so the art was very clear. Read Full Review
