Green Lantern #3 Review

 

    

Writer: Jeremy Adams, Phillip K. Johnson
Artist: Xermanico, Montos
Publisher: DC Comics
Release Date: September 13, 2023
Cover Price: $4.99

I'm still wondering why we just spent two months on an "Event" like Knight Terrors, but now that it's over, we can get back to some of the books that were giving the Dawn of DC the hype DC Comics has sorely needed.  Of course, one of those books is Jeremy Adam's Green Lantern!  So, does Green Lantern #3 keep the momentum going, or did Insomnia set it back a bit?  Let's find out...


Bits and Pieces:

Green Lantern #3 may not have returned after Knight Terrors with the bang I expected, but it was still a good issue.  Xermanico's art is excellent, and Jeremy Adams shows why everyone should be a fan of Hal Jordan.  That and the cliffhanger with Sinestro are sure to have fans clamoring for the next issue!

8.0/10
