Comicscore Index
Universal acclaim

Based on 8 critic ratings.

Having uncovered the truth behind the United Planets, Hal and the rest of the 2814 lanterns desperately try to escape the hands of the United Planets’ Lanterns, Ring Hunters, and the terrifying Unseen!

Only a former ally gives Hal a chance of survival, but will they be too late to save him from certain doom?!

Plus, Guy Gardner’s bogus Lobo adventure gets somehow even crazier. Don’t ask us how; we just work here.

    Green Lantern has experienced a series of highs over the course of Jeremy Adams and Xermanico’s run, but Green Lantern #12 is unquestionably one of the best issues yet.

    Comic Book Revolution

    Green Lantern #12 solidified this series being the best comic book DC Comics is currently publishing. The sense of scale that Jeremy Adams and Xermanico created from beginning to end is absolutely incredible. The non-stop action creates genuine concern for what will happen to Hal Jordan, Jo Mullein, and their allies while fighting the United Planet’s Lantern Corps. By creating that concern it makes the moment Carol Danvers appears on the screen be even more important. How this all transitions into how Green Lantern will factor into the Absolute Power event is done as well as this type of transition can be handled.

    Of course, this title is about to collide head-on with Absolute Power, as the big event takes over the DCU for the next few months. One thing Adams has done well, along with the other main writers at DC headquarters, is seamlessly seed other villains into Waller’s plot. Thaaros and Waller have had a deal for a long time, separating Earth from space—and now they have the same target in Hal Jordan.

    Green Lantern #12 ratchets things up a notch!  Great art from Xermanico and both micro and macro story movement from Adams come together perfectly.  There’s still a lot of story to come, and you can feel.  The anticipation is on the precipice…the fate of the Green Lantern Corps is at stake, and it seems like either they or the UP will fall!

    Green Lantern #12 delivers action, energy, excitement, and adventure wrapped up in a power-packed package. Jeremy Adams is dead set on giving Jordan more trouble than he can handle, and Xermánico’s art is great. If only the rest of DC’s title lineup was this much fun. Even the backup is worth your time.

    The Super Powered Fancast

    A sharp, thrilling adventure from Adams. The story is filled with great action and surprises as it builds on the tension of Hal and the others being overwhelmed by the trap set for them. As much as I enjoyed the action of the main story, I really connected with the return of Carol as Star Sapphire and what it means for her relationship with Hal as well as the connection between the United Planets and Amanda Waller. It creates an interesting cliffhanger as well as a great lead in to the upcoming Absolute Power event.

    Xermanico creates some beautifully detailed and visually thrilling art throughout the issue. I really loved the visual style and how it connects with the thrills and suspense of the story.

    The action and emotions continue as we are on the fallout side of things. The United Planets have tipped their hand and will enlist corrupt help from Earth while Carol, driven by the power of love, flies to the rescue. Guy’s hunt for Lobo is over and it looks like he will be returning to the main story, but things will have to pause for the Absolute Power event. I love the mysteries this creative team is cooking up, yet they play so well with the rest of the DCU that I’m glad they aren’t sitting out at events.
