    This miniseries is Green Lantern at its finest, full of devastating battles, ancient menaces, and the raw power of human potential. Rebirth works on every level, and should please fans of Green Lanterns past and present. Read Full Review

    Ethan Van Sciver's work has always impressed me, as he offers up one of the most detail intensive styles this side of Byran Hitch, and it does seem like he's found a good method of displaying his wares, as rather than hitch his wagon to a monthly title, instead he jumps from one project to the next, and in turn he manages to deftly avoid the pitfall of missed shipping dates. Now his work in this issue is called upon to deliver some lengthy bits of exposition, as Geoff Johns covers quite a bit of ground in his bid to clear Hal Jordan's name, but the art is more than equal to the task, from the cosmic spectacle of the Parallax entity, to the scene where the Hal Jordan's decent into villainy is revisited.

    Next issue, we might learn how Jordan was corrupted. Maybe hes not as innocent as hardcore fans want him to be. We still get a great story from Johns. (This is the slow down the action and explain the plot part of the story.) Van Sciver turns in another fantastic art job. And Kyle Rayner is the hero because he knows fear. By recognizing it, he can fight it. Excellent! Read Full Review
