    Long live the Corps! This is a great example of the all the lanterns doing something, while providing backstory on their newest members. And that final page…? Long Live the Legion! Read Full Review

    Overall, Green Lantern Corps Annual 2 pulls all the pieces together and connects the events of Green Lantern with Green Lantern Corps. The Corps are in dire need to forces and the fact that they need to become allies with unlikely sources should make for an interesting story going forward. The Green Lanterns may trust someone today but can the trust them tomorrow? Read Full Review

    The other flaw is with Neil Edwards' art. At his best, Edwards is a cinematic storyteller on par with the likes of Bryan Hitch. But here, his work is all over the place. It's frustrating to see him focus so much attention on facial work, only to have panels ruined because the faces don't match the tone of the conversation. Tom Derenick's origin pages are a little more successful in terms of storytelling, but they too are unnecessarily cramped. The wide scope of the story is betrayed by small, overstuffed panels.

    Green Lantern Corps Annual #2 is disappointing.  The ingredients are there for a satisfying meal, it's just they are thrown together in a confusing way.  I want my pizza. Read Full Review

    The annual is a little unusual in that it doesn't wrap up a storyline or serve as a turning point or major event as most annuals have seemed to in the past.  Green Lantern Corps Annual #2 seems more like a regular issue with extra pages in that regard. What might have served the story better would have been pulling the villain history pieces out of the main story and provided them as backup stories so they would not affect the flow anymore that the rest of the time jumping did. While the book isn't bad, the nearly constant shifting of time and space hinder the book from achieving anything more substantial than setting the stage for the hunt for the Durlan Green Lantern, Von Daggle.  Three out of five lanterns.

    Its odd how this issue worked out. The main plot is better than the flashbacks, but the flashbacks art is better than the main plots. These things happen, I suppose. In any case, things are still looking decent for the future of the Green Lantern franchise and Venditti/Jansen achieve this by completely wrecking our heroes lives. All is how it should be.
