    Impeccable world building and masterful storytelling make this series, as well as every issue thus far, a must-read. Sure, it's weird, but stories about space cops should be weird, right? Read Full Review

Weird is an understatement. Impecable is an overstatement.

    This issue also put Hal in his best position…operating outside of the whims of the Guardians, but his latest act of defiance might cost him big time. I love the sense of unpredictability of this book and the feeling that anything can happen. Morrison and Sharp are on to something special here and this remains one of the best DC reads each month.

The unpredictability was good here. Even the predictable disguise reveal of Jordan was a good enough then topped by Countess Belzebeth turning around and surprisingly doing the same thing!

    The Green Lantern #4 is another great issue in what has been a wonderful run thus far from Grant Morrison, Liam Sharp and Steve Oliff. There are a lot of details that are easy to overlook and rewards readers who choose to take a deep dive and take the time to immerse themselves in the experience. This isn't your typical read it once in fifteen minutes and put it in the long box type of book and that's a good thing. Read Full Review

That's probably true. It would be neat to read longtime and loyal GLfans' annotations to this!!

    Another exciting and wildly imaginative issue of The Green Lantern drives home just how darn cool this comic is! Read Full Review

It was okay.

    I'll say it again: as long as Morrison and Sharpe stay on and finish their run in a cohesive fashion, we're looking at a definitive run on the character, or at least an incredibly memorable Green Lantern series. Read Full Review

Could happen.

    A swashbuckling sci-fi adventure worthy of Hal Jordan's timeless legacy! Read Full Review

It could use more clearly grounded shared continuity and better canon referencing.

    Can Hal Jordan and some weird-looking members of the Green Lantern Corps stop a world's sun from being consumed? Probably. I mean, that's like his "thing,' right? All "save the planet" and whatnot. Me, I'd want to know what the sun thinks about it. Has anyone considered that the sun might want to be eaten? Read Full Review

Heh. But seriously, was that an Untold Tale? What volume run would it (probably) be placed in? Also any relevant insight or danglers around Sun-Eaters would be good to hear too (being unfamiliar with most of their history).

    Thereis another plot point I cant explain without giving much away. But I will goso far as to say that if Grant Morrison thinks he can convince us that Hal isnot undercover, then his reputation is considerably tarnished. His narrativechoices in this issue" telling a disjointed story from two differentperspectives " does nothing to impress me. But honestly, hes never impressed me. Your mileage mayvary, but I doubt by much. Read Full Review

Obviously, there's still unrevealed reasons why he blindly surrendered his GL ring. Good way to make next issue must read. If the reasons end up bad or dumb that will bring down the internet fire but so far it's... okay. Weird. Abstract aliens. Freaky fonts. But okay. Too bad the cover fight choice is an issue premature.
