    God, I just wanted this to end. I typically really enjoy Grant Morrison's writing. Morrison drones on and on with all kinds of science fiction gobbledygook without saying anything. It's Morison at his most Morrison. Combine that with Liam Sharp static art and you have the world's most boring Green Lantern comic. Sharp tries to emulate Dave McKean or Simon Bisley in a lot of the pages, which is fine for covers but makes for a lack of motion and storytelling for interiors.

This is the most boring comic I've read this year and if you follow me, you know that's out of a plethora of comics.

    Yeah this ends. Morrisons work is confusing and like had no good moments at all and this was a drag to read and I was grateful that it ended. This is my attempt at summarizing what happened: Hal is dead and he is sort of teaching the new guardians something in corporeal form and also the trial of Hyperman and his weird weakness and whatever that was. Star Sapphir and Gls of different realities team up to fight a brain washed Zundernell and as Hal goes to Athmoora, he is attacked by Hector Hammond Yeah this ends.

Star Sapphir and Gls of different realities team up to fight a brain washed Zundernell and as Hal goes to Athmoora, he is attacked by Hector Hammond in a weird but poorly constructed fantasy tale which was excruciating to read and the art and colors were horrible there. Ugh so happy it ended and hoping Morrison never touches the book. His writing is terrible maybe the ideas were good or in writing these final issues he didn't even care for anything lol. Regardless good moments for Carol and Hal, they are fated to be together in the end but can't because work commitments and it sets up future state nicely in some panels.

    A wordy, bloated, confusing end to Grant Morrison's not great GL run. I generally like Morrison, but I have to say good riddance on this one. It's like he drank too much of his own Kool-Aid and is more worried about telling a "Grant Morrison style" story than doing anything interesting or readable. Fantastic art, though. Hopefully the Green Lantern runs will follow the "great, terrible, great, terrible" pattern they have been on for the last few decades and the next one will be awesome.

    Man I love Grant Morrison and I love Liam Sharp and I don’t know what’s going on here at all. Me and this did not click.

    The problem with being well-known but also being well-known for complex things in a medium where complexity is seldom attempted and even less appreciated is that, well, as often as not the results of your work will go, well, unappreciated. Such is Grant Morrison’s Green Lantern, which in this fourth collected volume comes to its brilliant, abstract, ambitious conclusion.

Such is Grant Morrison’s Green Lantern, which in this fourth collected volume comes to its brilliant, abstract, ambitious conclusion. Morrison has as long a history of being a big name in comics as anyone ever has. He’s had his share of celebrated triumphs as well as reviled failures. And everyone still thinks they know exactly what they’re going to get when he tackles something new. The only thing that’s ever really for certain with a Grant Morrison project is the only certainty that the results will be interesting. After he at last attained mainstream success with JLA, Morrison next took on New X-Men. Where JLA was all mythic grandeur, New X-Men was mutant squalor. His All Star Superman was a summation of a heroic career. His Batman was the ultimate death trap. The Green Lantern has most accurately been compared to All Star Superman, although with a less iconic character he felt free to let loose completely. If he took up a “black casebook” in which “everything really has happened” with Batman, Morrison had toys to work with that even diehard Green Lantern fans would never have imagined in a million years would be relevant again. Hal Jordan, a guy few enough fans still consider to be Green Lantern, the ultimate rebel, the ultimate hero, in a landscape in which anything is possible. So just imagine Morrison writing that. How could anyone think the results would be any different? Morrison has long been fascinated with “the final war.” He took it on in his first masterpiece, Zenith, did his DC honors with >I, even All Star Superman was poised as the Man of Steel’s last battle. With unlimited toys, the scale as wide as possible, in Ultrawar he concludes his vision of what this looks like on a truly cosmic scale, the Guardians of the Universe against opponents capable of approaching that level. And Hal is up to the job. In fact, despite himself, despite the cost; he revels in it. No other superhero can get away with that! No other writer dares write them like that! And yet this is exactly how the Green Lantern story has always been told. It’s just, with Grant Morrison writing it, it feels so much different. Incomprehensible. Well, if you had a translation, it would look exactly like every other Hal Jordan story ever told. But only Morrison could make it feel like this. And that’s Grant Morrison in a nutshell, folks. Oh yeah, this is as good as he gets. And yet again he makes it feel relevant to the moment, in ways no one else can, either. It’s like a companion to his Wonder Woman: Earth One, only in reading so much more densely it can actually get away with being a clearer message, which is usually the opposite of what he accomplishes. Go figure.

    Sharp's art finally won me over, but the plot was a massive miss for me. Sharp's art finally won me over, but the plot was a massive miss for me.

    A satisfying end to Grant Morrison’s run. Smartly written and beautifully illustrated the ending resolves all major plot points without that cramped, shoehorned feeling many final issues have. This run ended too soon.

    This wraps up Morrison's Green Lantern run, but not in any mind bending kind of way. The Ultrawar was also disappointing to me since it was so short, involved so few participants and was over very quickly. Green Lantern has always been a very flexible concept, with a very wide range of powers, and that's even before getting into multiverses, time travel, mental landscapes, computer simulations and power ring-based worlds. It should be a playground well suited to Morrison's strengths, but outside This wraps up Morrison's Green Lantern run, but not in any mind bending kind of way.

It should be a playground well suited to Morrison's strengths, but outside of journeying into the ring itself, there wasn't much crazy or puzzling stuff in Morrison's run. I wonder if Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps are too tied into mainstream DC continuity and whether that limited what Morrison could do.

Um toque de sabedoria hermética, a encerrar a temporada de Grant Morrison como argumentista de Green Lantern. Sempre execionalmente acompanhado pelo ilustrador Liam Sharp, que deu vida ao surrealismo puro do escritor.

    I wish I’d gone back and read my review of the previous book before downloading it on Hoopla. In my previous review I said I was done with this series, and this book proves why. It is a complete mess. Does Morrison even know what’s going on? On top of a story that makes no sense is some very unappealing art. This time, I’m done.

    I didn’t care about this one by the time it ended. It always has such cool looking drawings but I didn’t care about the story.

    The chaos from the first collection continues. Perhaps the worst GL story ever, even worse than Darkest Night.
