    It's depressing to think that we've already arrived at the penultimate issue of this series. But at least Cullen Bunn and Jesus Saiz look to be going out with a bang. Read Full Review

    Green Lantern: Lost Army begins to pull things together a bit here and a good portion of that was just Saiz's artwork in making for a fun and engaging prison break sequence. Having a couple of more interesting characters around doesn't hurt either and I liked the weirdness in how the team comes together with items combined with Guy's costume due to his power usage. There's not a lot of story progression here and I'm not expecting any to happen either, but there was a lot more enjoyment out of this issue even if answers are still not forthcoming. The book looks to be turning towards one of the more difficult characters to work with the next time around and I imagine there might be an easy out in utilizing Mogo to help draw some of this to a close, but it's uncertain exactly what the plan really is here.

    Green Lantern: The Lost Army #5 is an action packed issue which serves up plenty of action and great character moments. There are a few bumps in the road which may be the result of trying to hurry this series towards next month's final issue and there are still no answers to many of the questions raised since the series began. Three out of five lanterns. Read Full Review

    Lost Army is almost over and with that in mind, I think I was able to enjoy this issue more than the rest because I didn't have to worry about this series continuing to let me down.  That's some harsh shit I know, but this series has been ridiculous with the amount of nothing that it's provided.  So while this might be a bright spot in the darkness that's been this series, that's not even saying much.  The most you can hope to really get from this issue is a decent prison break and the fantastic art by Jesus Saiz.

    There is no way that Green Lantern Lost Army #6 will give any reader the sort of conclusion that one might have hoped. It's not all Bunn's fault was the cancellation pulled the rug out the intended length, but I can only judge what is given to me when a new issue comes out. This series is the definition of mediocre and just underwhelming to anybody who has either read Green Lantern or to anybody who has read sci fi comics before. Now all we have to do is beat the dead horse one last time, just in time for the holidays. Read Full Review
