    This book continues to impressive with no letup in sight. Hopefully it’s getting a strong reaction from readers as this is the kind of fresh story DC needs more of in its titles.

    What Johnson does here is expand on elements from past runs that hinted that John’s powers were growing beyond what we’ve seen from any other Lantern. This wouldn’t work nearly as well as if he hadn’t done the work to get us invested in John’s family.

    The Story: Johnson continues to create an engaging and interesting story for John Stewart and this issue ramps up the suspense as John deals with his new circumstances. The story has some great world building throughout and the tone between John’s story and the Earth story are wonderfully complex. I love the tension with the Revenant Queen story and look forward to seeing what happens next.

    The Art: Montos delivers some beautifully dramatic and brilliantly detailed art throughout the issue.

    John Stewart’s fight against the Revenant Queen has taken him to a galaxy far, far away and this is a big issue for his mother and the “caregiver” the Green Lantern left with her. Johnson and Montos are able to create two solid sides of the same coin here, as I’ve been a big fan of John’s mother’s struggle with dementia and it feels like taking Stewart out of his element works well here. There are many moving pieces in War Journal but they are moving in unison to create the best Green Lantern comic book available today. Here’s to hoping that John will have his own solo series for some time to come.

    Green Lantern: War Journal #7 is another great issue of the series, slowing the pace down a bit in order to get a few pieces of the puzzle ready for what’s to come. Phillip Kennedy Johnson and Montos are doing great work here, which I hope is getting recognized by comic readers. Eight out of ten lanterns.

    It’s early into this second arc, but it’s already giving us exactly what we need. Which is to say, the same emotional colors and hues, bigger stakes (dare I say of the universal variety), more tests and questions being tossed at every character, and a story that doubles down on big ideas of family, heroism, and what we do to be human when that’s not always the easiest prospect. I’m excited (and maybe a touch nervous) for the rest of this arc, but it’s damn likely going to be insightful and transformative for everyone involved.
