jrphoenix reviewed Green Lantern #10 Aug 11, 2019
3.0

Incoherent story at times. No seeming impact on the DCU. Morrison's run has been such a downgrade compared with what Vindetti did before. Dropping the title today.

Green Lantern #10

By: Grant Morrison, Liam Sharp
Released: Aug 7, 2019

Twelve parallel worlds! Twelve Green Lanterns! And one unstoppable menace! Hal Jordan joins the Green Lanterns of the Multiverse-including Bat-Lantern, Tangent Green Lantern and more-to save a dying Multiverse, defeat the relentless Anti-Man and embark upon their "Quest for the Cosmic Grail"! It's another Morrison/Sharp science fantasy epic!

Not that I'm aware of, but I do find his writing to be horrible.

Talon1load - Aug 9, 2019

Agreed. His writing is great if you’re a stoner. If not, it’s a bunch of bullshit.

Well, the art is nice. The story made me realize something — I need to cancel my GL subscription. This is absolute trash.

Mr. Morrison: stop it. We know you can write a good story. We have seen it before. Do you just hate Green Lantern?

“Have I told you about our Lord and Savior, Grant Morrison, who can do no wrong? We must go to all corners of the internet to defend him!” All-Star Superman: amazing. Batman run: Amazing. GL run: shit. Even John Lennon made bad songs, man.

Talon1load - Aug 9, 2019

I hate most of Morrison’s work. His Green Lantern is no different. I want him off or at least give me a another Green Lantern title written by a better writer who is stoned all the time.
