    Another good read here in issue #2. Plenty of suspense, great art by Jesus Saiz, a few questions from last issue get answered, and we are given a whole new set of questions that need answers. It ends on and interesting twist, and the one thing we do learn is that even though we do not know where, or even when, the Green Lanterns are, we do know it is not in any universe, or timeline even, that they are at all familiar with. Well worth the read, and nice to see such an ambitious story in the pages of Green Lantern book that doesn't center around Hal Jordan. I am definitely hooked on this one. Read Full Review

    The heroes are learning the rules, but will it help them get home? Highly entertaining in every way. Read Full Review

    The book also benefits from a talented artist. It's a little strange seeing Jesus Saiz exploring the cosmos after so much of his previous DC work was devoted to more grounded heroes (as in Checkmate) or horror (as in Swamp Thing). Saiz certainly shakes up his style, inking and even coloring his own work. While his work lacks a bit of the shadowy definition it had in Swamp Thing, Saiz's storytelling is as clean and refined as ever. Read Full Review

    While Green Lantern: Lost Army hasn't sold me completely at this stage, I'm still on board with it because it could potentially be doing some pretty interesting things. The concepts here take the character out of their normal situations and locales and puts them in a place where they're on their own, without a lot of knowledge and have to be actively careful about what they do. We're getting small teases overall about what's going on and some of what it may be is definitely pretty intriguing depending on how far it's carried through, but I'm trying not to "read ahead" too much of what I think will happen and just explore what actually does happen as it comes.

    Green Lantern: The Lost Army#2 is an entertaining, but underdeveloped comic. Jesus Saiz's artwork is gorgeous, and Cullen Bunn comes up with some entertaining uses of the Lantern rings, but the comic stumbles in developing its plot. Two issues in, andGreen Lantern: The Lost Armyhas delivered two battles with ill-defined stakes. For the series to survive in this market, Bunn will need to give the Lanterns something to do other than to search for their way home. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Jul 20, 2015

    "Green Lantern: The Lost Army" #2 drops down to an average comic book now that the mystery of where the team is located has already been solved. It's a shame, too; this originally came across as a way to do something with the Green Lantern characters that could go in completely different directions and really do its own thing. While Bunn and Saiz may very well tell some good stories with this particular setting, it's already somewhat trapped in "Green Lantern" lore. In appealing to one audience, it's less appealing to another. Read Full Review

    Green Lantern: The Lost Army #2 entertains but with the main plot mired in the unknown the series appears as if it lacks a central focus beyond trying to get home. The revelation that the Corps are displaced in time rather than space might come as a surprise to some, but for many readers it's more of a confirmation of suspicions based on the clues dropped last month. Three out of five lanterns. Read Full Review

    Lost Army was what would you expect with a second issue, some fun dialog and action sequences between the team. Moving the plot forward as well as actually giving a answer which leaves us with a pretty interesting cliffhanger. Finally thankfully Bunn did tone down the marine flashback to one page, since most of John's marine skills can easily be demonstrated in current time. No need to beat a dead horse here.

    Green Lantern: Lost Army continues to disappoint as we have another issue that comes off flat with not a lot going on.  The major positives to this book are the art, but that's only for the characters since this book is devoid of backgrounds and the cliffhanger that promises interesting things to come in future issues.  Just a really rocky start to this series that I expected to love.
