    This is a fantastic setup for the next arc, and reveals that there’s something much darker going on behind the United Planets blockade. This is already starting to feel like the next great DC run.

    Green Lantern #6 gives and takes when it comes to answers from Jeremy Adams, but before those revelations, you’ll be treated to a Red vs Green light show that will make you wonder if Christmas has lost its mind! Xermanico, Scott Godlewski, and Romulo Fajardo Jr. perfectly showcase the Lanterns’ Lights as Will Tempers Rage.

    Hal Jordan and Sinestro finally collide in Green Lantern #6, and the battle is more than worth the wait. Jeremy Adams turns the classic rivalry on its head with a rage powered Sinestro, as a more volatile Sinestro makes for a grander battle compared to the more tactical and focused approach we’re used to. The shift in dynamics allows artists Xermanico and Scott Godlewski to swing for the fences in terms of scope, with constructs that loom over the city below and pop off the page courtesy of colorist Romulo Fajardo Jr. The two page spreads in the midst of this chaos are stunning, and the sheer creativity in the constructs and how the fight plays out is one of the series’ biggest strong suits. On the other end of the spectrum is the book’s ending, which brings the story back to its grounding point and primes things on a more personal level for Hal moving forward, bringing things full circle. Green Lantern continues to capture the heart of what makes this character and this mythology so special, and the ride only looks to get more wild from here.

    The Comicbook Dispatch

    Green Lantern #6 is cluttered with action putting this creative team into the driver’s seat. From start to finish, fans get a powerful, entertaining issue thats been building since Adams took over. And lets be honest, what Green Lantern fan wouldnt want to see an entire comic centered around Hal and Sinestro fighting? Well, thats exactly what you get with some of the brightest and most crisp constructs Ive seen in quite some time. I have no doubt fans will love this issue and leave with a unique cliffhanger that will still dial them in for next month.

    The Story: A fun, thrilling adventure from Adams. The story is filled with great action and suspense. Not only are there great action elements throughout the story, but there are some fantastic reveals that make this series interesting and incredibly entertaining. I really enjoyed the end of the issue and the reveal about one of Hal’s closest friends.

    The Art: Xermanico and Godlewski deliver fantastic art in the issue. The action is visually thrilling throughout and captures the imagination visually.

    Green Lantern #6 throws down with an epic showdown between Hal Jordan and a Sinestro consumed by the red rage energy. Jeremy Adams wastes no time thrusting readers into the heart of the conflict, showcasing the destructive potential of Sinestro’s newfound power and Hal’s desperate struggle to contain it.

    As we’ve come to expect from him in this series, the art by Xermánico, along with Scott Godlewski & colorist Romulo Fajardo Jr., brings the raw destructive power of the red rage to life, with Sinestro’s constructs manifesting with visual displays of fury. The contrast between Sinestro’s previous controlled power and his current unbridled fury is stark and visually striking.

    Jeremy Adams and Xermanicos Green Lantern continues to plant Hals feet firmly on the ground, as they rebuild his life on earth, as well as his role as the Green Lantern of earth. We still dont know where his ring comes from, or why he cant escape earths atmosphere, but its still early in the run. Scott Godlewskis the guest artist, and he brings his a-game here. Just a visually stunning book all around.

    DC Comics News

    Green Lantern #6 is just a really, really good comic. It’s as simple as that. The creative team exemplifies the “back to basics” approach. It’s working extremely well for Hal and Co. and there’s no reason to think it will end. Character comes first as it should!

    Weird Science DC Comics

    Green Lantern #6 is an action fans dream with big constructs fighting big battles with big stakes. That said, Adams doesn’t give enough attention to the mysteries or further the story through the action, so this issue is a lot of eye candy with little substance.
