Alan Scott: The Green Lantern #3 Review:

As Alan Scott gets closer to the truth about the Red Lantern, he teams up with the Spectre in another stand-out issue of this series.

“This is one of the best Spectre issues I’ve read in a really long time,” host Alex Zalben said. “It’s a character that purposefully is always kept at arm’s length, this godlike being that comes in and messes things up and leaves. But here it’s more the old-school, classic, more human identity. I thought it was a lot of fun.”

“It’s impressive,” Pete LePage added on the issue, noting that the addition of the Spectre was not only a neat use of the character, but helped give us more information on Alan Scott, as well. “Fantastic art and tone… You go from excitement to heartbreak in this issue.”

Justin Tyler agreed, as well, on really enjoying the Spectre appearance. “It’s just a great set up,” Tyler said on how the plot unfolded, “and was able to sneak up on the reveal [at the end of the issue] in a was that still felt earned.”
