    The best work by Morrison in years. A well-plotted intergalactic police procedural with flourishes of that classic Morrison Big Weird. The art is a pleasant balance of a sort of engagingly ugly realism with a sort of black light and hash smoke sci fi aesthetic. ...

    This review originally published in Looking For a Good Book. Rated 3.25 of 5 It's not a secret that Green Lantern is one of my favorite superheroes and when I see the opportunity to get an ARC of a GL graphic novel, I'm likely to put in a request. Based on this cover, however, I was...

    With an emphasis on the 'Lawman' aspects of the character, Grant Morrison and Liam Sharp bring the weirdness of space to what was a very human-centric project. There is high adventure, epic weirdness and a few close calls. Good work! ...

    One of the wackiest, trippiest superhero books I've ever read, everything is just so alien. Morrison makes you feel like you're actually out there in space, experiencing the vast unknown. There's a lot of creativity going on here, unfortunely the plot suffers from it, its convoluted an...

    Grant Morrison writing Green Lantern is, on paper, a perfect match. His enormously inventive storytelling coupled with an unlimited array of alien characters and a protagonist with a magic ring that can do anything? It should be a home run. Except it?s not, unfortunately. Green L...

    I?m a massive Green Lantern fan, I loved the new direction the series took after Rebirth and I?ve enjoyed the ride all the way up to now...Where it all came to a screeching halt. I?m not sure if it was the change in artwork, the change in focus or some combination of multiple...

    Okay. I have to be honest I am not always fan of Grant Morrison's writing but he has written some of my favorite comic books of all time. These would include Absolute All-Star Superman, Batman Incorporated: The Deluxe Edition, New X-Men by Grant Morrison: Ultimate Collection, Book 1-Ne...

    Hey, so remember All Star Superman? This is sort of like that. I have only recently come around to viewing All Star Superman in the same rapturous tones as many comics fans have since Grant Morrison and Frank Quitely began releasing its original solo issues in 2006. As a complete po...

    Grant is my god now. Holy gosh, what a fucking good Green lantern comic. Such a left turn from everything Johns and co had been doing, but equally valid in its reverence for the silver age. Morrison writing aliens is an obvious fit, but he doesn't cop out with mere human analogues,...

    I?m biased, I am a Morrison fan. I?ve been reading Johns Green Lantern run and took a quick break to read this fist volume of Morrison. While I?m enjoying both authors so far, they are very different: where Johns (so far that I?ve read) feels very earth centric, Morrison is...

    2.5 Stars. I've been reading Green Lantern in all it's iterations and sub books since before Blackest Night, including some of the storylines before that time as well. Knowing that Grant Morrison was taking over the main GL title, I tried to prepare myself for the dialogue-heavy, very...

    I received a copy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley to read and review. THE GREEN LANTERN, VOL. 1: INTERGALACTIC LAWMAN written by Grant Morrison and illustrated by Liam Sharp is about Hal Jordan, and brings the former Green Lantern back into action facing several fo...

    3.5 Grant Morrison's storylines tend to create impressive artwork and intricate plotting. I was quite exciting to see him take the mantle of this Green Lantern series, and in some aspects he didn't disappoint. If you haven't read the authors work, I would suggest tackling Doom Patro...

    Has its moments, but is kind of underwhelming overall. Can't quite pinpoint it, but I feel that it's just not flowing right. The art by Sharp is fantastic and his page layouts very impressive, almost like tableaus. Unfortunately the inventiveness and the skill leads to information over...

    Thank you to Netgalley for the opportunity to read and review this book. For a 'Vol. One' this book relied on much prior knowledge of the reader about the universe of the Green Lantern. This was definitely colorful but most annoyingly too busy. It was not possible to keep straight the ...

    Like most of Morrison's superhero work, this digs into DC's past. Most of the stranger Green Lanterns in the book have been around since the Bronze Age. Alan Moore first introduced the virus GL, Leezle Pon in the 80s and Medphyll (the broccoli head GL) was introduced in the 60s. Everyt...

    The Green Lantern Vol.1: Intergalactic Lawman thrusts Hal Jordan back into the role he does best, playing space cop.On the new OA, the Guardians put Hal on the job of finding a traitor from a new prophecy. His investigations take him across the galaxy, saving planets and stopping villa...

    3.5 stars Definitely reminiscent of prog rock like the critic reviews say. Personally not the greatest for me because I'm off and on and Grant Morrison's writing. But there were some really good parts here that I might want to continue reading. ...

    For a Green Lantern book written by Grant Morrison, this was kind of... not good. I was insanely excited when the book was first announced, I loved the first issue to bits, but every other issue that came out after just got worse and worse. The plot is convoluted and not very interesti...

    Not sure what to think about this. It's definitely a departure from other GL stories I've read. It contains a lot of Morrison's vivid imagination with creating new aliens and names. Jordan is also not in it all the time. Sharpe's artwork is also imaginative with detail, and at times da...

    THE Green Lantern by THE Grant Morrison. Real emphasis on Hal as a space cop. The art and the story both want to comprise all SF and fantasy from Flash Gordon through Wally Wood's Weird Science, Frazetta's Vampirella, down to Ethan Van Sciver and XO Manowar. For example, here'...

    You can find my review on my blog by clicking here. What would you do if your imagination was allowed to take over and write a story with nothing restricting you from exploring the darkest corners of the universe? Within the Green Lantern Corps, the heroes go up against all kind...

    I tried reading this in issues, but I got to page four of the first issue when Morrison wrote "Fleezle-Flam doesn't catch you, you catch Fleezel-Flam", and I had to put the book down for my own mental health. I don't like silver age comics. I don't like Morrison's post X-Men superhe...

    My favorite aspect of this book was Liam Sharp's art. The character designs are wonderful and nuts and just so much fun to look at. And the environments are absolutely packed with inventive buildings, tech, and aliens. There is one downside to this -- I frequently found myself losing t...

    Morrison is not on drugs, drugs are on Morrison. So many nods back to old continuity, best of all the darkstars, or here, the black stars. A volcano headed green lantern, Hal killing someone who was a POS, dark entities and gobelidy gook that only Morrison?s and few select others ...

    Gardner Fox's work on GL was one of the runs that inspired Morrison as a child so it's exciting to see him take the reins of the character. Getting Steve Oliff on colors and Tom Orzechowski on letters were inspired choices, giving it that retro-ish '90s feel (though of course everyone'...

    4.5 stars. This is lots of fun, and very different from a lot of the Green Lantern content from the past several years. First of all, Morrison's run is very bronze age. He also uses a lot of bronze age corp members that haven't been around for a while, like Volk and Rot Lop Fan...

    Having recently read Morrison?s first Batman book, I didn?t have much hope for his new Green Lantern run. And once I did crack open Green Lantern, I discovered that it?s also very odd. So odd, in fact, that I had to read through the full arc a few times just to make sense of it a...
