ShabaTG reviewed Green Lantern #1 Nov 7, 2018
3.5

I went in wanting to like this one. I kept looking for moments, but there were few I liked. Overall it was an uninteresting story, with muddled dialog, and was completely void of any emotional content or connection to any character. The art was good, but too detailed in places (especially the smaller panels) which distracted me from what was happening.

i didn't mind Liam Sharp's art at all. i really liked the facial features he drew for Hal. ...but the coloring (especially in the backgrounds) definitely could have used some depth and atmosphere.

ohhaimark - Nov 15, 2018

I do think the coloring detracted from the book, for sure. It didn’t really bother me personally though.

it seems Harley Quinn is now the most powerful character in the entire DCU.
this time she completely outfoxes the entire DC trinity.

characters act like complete idiots. dull robotic dialog. poor attempts at humor.

The Harley thing drove me crazy. It’s ridiculous.

myconius - Nov 5, 2018

Harley has become such an overpowered Mary Sue. she shouldn't need the kryptonite she stole out of Batman's *Bat-belt* to defeat Superman. all she has to do is swing at him with her baseball bat, or maybe just stab him with a pie knife.
