Not to harp on Green Lantern: Rebirth again, but here's another "critic's" non-critical view:
NEWSARAMA - JOURNEY INTO COMICS: GREEN LANTERN'S RETURN AND SHORT TAKES: "DC relented and with Green Lantern: Rebirth (DC, $2.95) Jordan is coming back as Green Lantern in a six-issue series followed by a regular monthly title.
Writer Geoff Johns and artist Ethan Van Sciver came up with a perfect vehicle to explain away Jordan’s insanity, sacrifice, death and resurrection. The series, now up to issue 4, is a thing of beauty."
Perfect vehicle? Thing of beauty? Again, ladies and gentlemen, I give you the story that takes away a human emotional response and replaces it with the yellow fear alien.
