The Green Lantern, Vol. 1: Intergalactic Lawman Reviews

    Jun 17, 2019

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Hal Jordan, S P A C E C O P ! ! ! Seriously, that's the deal. And, oh yeah, bonkers Morrison-ry like this: ...

    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...

    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. ...

    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 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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Not bad, but, to be honest, I expected more. ...

    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'...

    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,...

    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 ...

    I started out hating Grant Morrison but over time he's become one of my favorite comic book writers. Sometimes his work doesn't gel for me (7 Soldiers of Victory) or his heady concepts collapse under their own weight (Final Crisis), but when he's on fire you get an All Star Superman or...

    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'...

    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! ...

    I am forever a Grant Morrison fan, and when I have the chance to read this at the first chance I just had to take it. It's nice to see a Green Lantern story where the whole "Space Cop" concept can flourish. I love Geoff John's work, but with every big event and grand adventure after an...

    *I received this copy in exchange for an honest review. The opinions I share are my own and honest to a default* I can't claim to be a Green Lantern fan. I have enjoyed some of his titles in the past, but he isn't a character that would have me run to get his collected works either....

    Overly camp and throwback. There are some funny allegories for current world issues, but then when you think he is going to talk about issues around policing, he falls back to a couple of typical cop show cliches that build to nothing interesting. The best thing here is the art (excep...

    Half Jordan was done being a Green Lantern, but with the appearance of the Blackstars, he has to come back. This story spans "The Green Lantern 1-6" and is a story of betrayal and of how far a lawman would/ should go to save lives. Artist Liam Sharp brings a sharp and distinctive styl...

    Morrison is definitely a mixed bag for me: clever and innovative titles find themselves shelved next to ?what the hell did I just read??. This one falls somewhere in the middle. I liked playing up the space cop angle, and Jordan?s characterization was close to the mark. I was ner...

    Morrison's most consistently enjoyable comic this decade, a pile up of strange creatures, bewildering crimes and dialogue that finds dry humour in our hero's attempts to police the unfathomable. Liam Sharp's art provides real gnarl and cosmic wonder on a page by page basis. The fig...

    Ok maybe i m a bit biased because i love Grant Morrison, but i think the way he handles green lantern is awesome, its far beyond the battle between the corps which Geoff Johns introduced, this is of grand scale really grand scale, it has symbolic and sociopolitical undertones also, but...

    If your head starts to hurt, don't fret...it's just Grant Morrison expanding your mind. This is the first Green Lantern solo book I've ever read but not my first time exploring the endless cosmos known as GM's imagination. Maybe a bit too out there and "Strange" for spandex readers ...

    So I really liked the vampire villain and. . . not really much else? I should give this volume a little more credit since it is the first in the series, but for some reason I'm not feeling as generous as I normally am about "volume 1"s. Green Lanterns are OK, that might be part of my p...

    Grant Morrison's latest take on Green Lantern is full of his trademark creativity, but the final result falls flat. The tone changes from epic reboot to campy melodrama (moments reminded me of Flash Gordon and not in the good way) to generic law and order story. Weird with some good mo...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Hal Jordan, S P A C E C O P ! ! ! Seriously, that's the deal. And, oh yeah, bonkers Morrison-ry like this: ...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Not bad, but, to be honest, I expected more. ...

    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'...

    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,...

    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 ...

    I started out hating Grant Morrison but over time he's become one of my favorite comic book writers. Sometimes his work doesn't gel for me (7 Soldiers of Victory) or his heady concepts collapse under their own weight (Final Crisis), but when he's on fire you get an All Star Superman or...

    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'...

    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! ...

    I am forever a Grant Morrison fan, and when I have the chance to read this at the first chance I just had to take it. It's nice to see a Green Lantern story where the whole "Space Cop" concept can flourish. I love Geoff John's work, but with every big event and grand adventure after an...

    *I received this copy in exchange for an honest review. The opinions I share are my own and honest to a default* I can't claim to be a Green Lantern fan. I have enjoyed some of his titles in the past, but he isn't a character that would have me run to get his collected works either....

    Overly camp and throwback. There are some funny allegories for current world issues, but then when you think he is going to talk about issues around policing, he falls back to a couple of typical cop show cliches that build to nothing interesting. The best thing here is the art (excep...

    Half Jordan was done being a Green Lantern, but with the appearance of the Blackstars, he has to come back. This story spans "The Green Lantern 1-6" and is a story of betrayal and of how far a lawman would/ should go to save lives. Artist Liam Sharp brings a sharp and distinctive styl...

    Morrison is definitely a mixed bag for me: clever and innovative titles find themselves shelved next to ?what the hell did I just read??. This one falls somewhere in the middle. I liked playing up the space cop angle, and Jordan?s characterization was close to the mark. I was ner...

    Morrison's most consistently enjoyable comic this decade, a pile up of strange creatures, bewildering crimes and dialogue that finds dry humour in our hero's attempts to police the unfathomable. Liam Sharp's art provides real gnarl and cosmic wonder on a page by page basis. The fig...

    Ok maybe i m a bit biased because i love Grant Morrison, but i think the way he handles green lantern is awesome, its far beyond the battle between the corps which Geoff Johns introduced, this is of grand scale really grand scale, it has symbolic and sociopolitical undertones also, but...

    If your head starts to hurt, don't fret...it's just Grant Morrison expanding your mind. This is the first Green Lantern solo book I've ever read but not my first time exploring the endless cosmos known as GM's imagination. Maybe a bit too out there and "Strange" for spandex readers ...

    So I really liked the vampire villain and. . . not really much else? I should give this volume a little more credit since it is the first in the series, but for some reason I'm not feeling as generous as I normally am about "volume 1"s. Green Lanterns are OK, that might be part of my p...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    I started out hating Grant Morrison but over time he's become one of my favorite comic book writers. Sometimes his work doesn't gel for me (7 Soldiers of Victory) or his heady concepts collapse under their own weight (Final Crisis), but when he's on fire you get an All Star Superman or...

    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'...

    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! ...

    I am forever a Grant Morrison fan, and when I have the chance to read this at the first chance I just had to take it. It's nice to see a Green Lantern story where the whole "Space Cop" concept can flourish. I love Geoff John's work, but with every big event and grand adventure after an...

    *I received this copy in exchange for an honest review. The opinions I share are my own and honest to a default* I can't claim to be a Green Lantern fan. I have enjoyed some of his titles in the past, but he isn't a character that would have me run to get his collected works either....

    Overly camp and throwback. There are some funny allegories for current world issues, but then when you think he is going to talk about issues around policing, he falls back to a couple of typical cop show cliches that build to nothing interesting. The best thing here is the art (excep...

    Half Jordan was done being a Green Lantern, but with the appearance of the Blackstars, he has to come back. This story spans "The Green Lantern 1-6" and is a story of betrayal and of how far a lawman would/ should go to save lives. Artist Liam Sharp brings a sharp and distinctive styl...

    Morrison is definitely a mixed bag for me: clever and innovative titles find themselves shelved next to ?what the hell did I just read??. This one falls somewhere in the middle. I liked playing up the space cop angle, and Jordan?s characterization was close to the mark. I was ner...

    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'...

    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! ...

    I am forever a Grant Morrison fan, and when I have the chance to read this at the first chance I just had to take it. It's nice to see a Green Lantern story where the whole "Space Cop" concept can flourish. I love Geoff John's work, but with every big event and grand adventure after 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...

    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...

    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...

    Hal Jordan, S P A C E C O P ! ! ! Seriously, that's the deal. And, oh yeah, bonkers Morrison-ry like this: ...

    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...

    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. ...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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'...

    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 received this copy in exchange for an honest review. The opinions I share are my own and honest to a default* I can't claim to be a Green Lantern fan. I have enjoyed some of his titles in the past, but he isn't a character that would have me run to get his collected works either....

    Overly camp and throwback. There are some funny allegories for current world issues, but then when you think he is going to talk about issues around policing, he falls back to a couple of typical cop show cliches that build to nothing interesting. The best thing here is the art (excep...

    Half Jordan was done being a Green Lantern, but with the appearance of the Blackstars, he has to come back. This story spans "The Green Lantern 1-6" and is a story of betrayal and of how far a lawman would/ should go to save lives. Artist Liam Sharp brings a sharp and distinctive styl...

    Morrison is definitely a mixed bag for me: clever and innovative titles find themselves shelved next to ?what the hell did I just read??. This one falls somewhere in the middle. I liked playing up the space cop angle, and Jordan?s characterization was close to the mark. I was ner...

    Morrison's most consistently enjoyable comic this decade, a pile up of strange creatures, bewildering crimes and dialogue that finds dry humour in our hero's attempts to police the unfathomable. Liam Sharp's art provides real gnarl and cosmic wonder on a page by page basis. The fig...
