    This run had a lot of big ideas, but maybe too big for a GL run set amid a company-wide reshuffling. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Anthony Bergamini Dec 27, 2022

    This over-sized issue was jam packed with content but may be hard to follow for fans who are not up to date with what's currently happening in Green Lantern. With an overabundance of plot and a heavy reliance on high-concept plot points, the story becomes muddled and tiresome to digest. Read Full Review

    John Stewart: The Emerald Knight #1 is an issue damaged by one flaw.

    Blog Of Oa - Myron Rumsey Dec 29, 2022

    John Stewart: The Emerald Knight #1 is hopefully the final time we'll see Geoff Thorne writing in the Green Lantern universe. In an issue that could have tied the series back into regular continuity, this one-shot effectively opens a kettle of worms that puts DC Comics in a position where ignoring the run is its best option – and the best option for readers as well. Four out of ten lanterns. Read Full Review
