The murderous cosmic monster known as Mongul is back in part 1 of "Ring Quest!" He's more powerful than ever and ready to instill great fear as the newly minted bearer of a Sinestro Corps ring!

    Despite the multiple artists, this is still a good read that sets the stage for future issues. Mongul appears to be returning to his father's preCrisis status of badass, but I hope they don't punk him out the first chance they get. The guy has been through enough. Let him at least maim a Green Lantern before you have Ion or Guy put a beat down on him. Read Full Review

    Tomasi and the art crew hit one not only out of the park but out of this world! Anything Green Lantern is still worth picking up because the war may be over but the dust certainly has not settled. Read Full Review

    IGN - Dan Phillips Jan 9, 2008

    The only baffling aspect of this issue is the involvement of artist Carlos Magno, who splits artistic chores with regular penciller Patrick Gleason. One of the reasons Countdown has seen an upswing in quality has been Magno's recent lack of involvement on that title, which makes his role on one of DC's most popular recent books quite confusing. Are the editors trying to humble GL Corps and bring it back down to Earth (no pun intended) by assigning the sloppy and disjointed Magno to supply pages? That's what it seems like. This is one book that I'd rather see delayed than ruined by horrible art. It's a good thing Gleason was there to temporarily save the show this time out. Read Full Review

    Overall, this was a decent issue that has its moments. Im interested to see where Tomasi takes this title especially as it serves as a compliment to Geoff Johns spectacular Green Lantern. Tomasi has his work cut out for him working alongside Johns and following Green Lantern Corps guru Dave Gibbons, but for the most part he is off to a decent start. Read Full Review

    Better than before, but still a little ways away from "necessary" to anyone other than a completist. Overall good work, but not enough meat on the bones. Read Full Review
