Many people lost interest in the “War of the Green Lanterns” storyline but I’ve had a reasonable amount of fun with it. I think my enjoyment is due to reading it after I had all of the issues. I can see where reading it according to the release schedule could be taxing. Green Lantern #67 brings the conclusion to the arc but also the first major setup to DC’s September relaunch.

As with most of these issues, Johns’ focus is much more on action than dialogue but considering this is the big finale it’s to be expected. Most of the book focuses on the climactic battle between Hal, Kyle, John, and Guy and Krona, along with the entity possessed Guardians. It’s simple but fun and while some of the conclusions are to neat and tidy, it’s an entertaining finale made better by a strong ending. In the second half of the issue you begin to see an interesting turn of events surrounding an important character and this evolves into a cliffhanger ending of sorts. I loved the way it wrapped up and it’s more appealing due to the “Coming in September, Green Lantern #1” stamped on the final page.

Doug Mahnke is completely comfortable drawing large scale epic space battles. This issue has it’s share of action-packed panels and large splash pages. Most of his panels are sharp and vibrant with the exception of the few that are a tad cluttered and hard to decipher. But it’s hard to find fault with the art and with the exception of the very “blah” cover art, this book generally looks really good.

“War of the Green Lanterns” is an entertaining story if you read it altogether. This issue serves as a solid conclusion but an even better setup for September’s Green Lantern #1. Johns has set the table for a very interesting direction for Green Lantern and it all starts with this here. Certainly worth picking up.

  1. No, it doesn’t end here. We have “Aftermath”. “Solid conclusion”? Really?

  2. The name of the issue is “Conclusion”. It’s on the cover and interior title page. That’s what I’m going by. I’m reviewing it on what the creators are treating it like. Obviously it doesn’t end here. That’s why I made multiple references to what it sets up particularly in the relaunch.

  3. Good review.

    I sat all of War of the GLs out (I plan on getting the War of the GLs in a collected format), but since this issue sets up a lot of what will occur in the GL books come September, I decidexd to get this issue.

    A nice, action-filled book, and I am happy I got it.

    There were some great big scenes, and several small single-panel moments that make this issue work very well on many levels.

    I may get the Aftermath books, too.

  4. Thanks. I’m planning on getting Aftermath as well.
