    Venditti excels at this sort of social/economic/political parable style of storytelling. This tale of sources of power and rights of government is shaping up to be every bit as sharp and fascinating as Lights Out. What next? I do have an idea, one that is bolstered by a very recent announcement about a new DC ongoing title in the Lantern line. Who do we know who loves the Green Lantern Corps so much, that he was willing to damn himself to save it and also has a talent for bringing rebellions to heel with the power of Fear? Im just saying is all, guys. As for Saint Walker: they better not leave him like that. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - C Reyes Jan 11, 2014

    Overall, this issue had its plot holes that I am certain can be filled if you read Green Lantern Corps, so from a writing perspective it felt like we were missing something, and though the pacing and the transition was steady for the most part, though it look a sudden left turn towards the middle that left the reader with more questions than before. Art-wise, if one can get past the layouts were set towards the tail end of the book, Dale Eaglesham's art is stunning and (no offense to Mr. Tan) it is the best art that's been seen on this title since the Mahnkee and Van Sciver days. If it was not for the art and the fact that this segways into the dual-issue that will bring about a supposed change in the landscape of the franchise, I'd say don't bother with it, but as I previously stated it is a must-have in order to comprehend the grand scheme of things.

    It's hard to get too in depth with this issue without spoiling something pretty big, but trust us, it's a very thrilling issue and will change the the direction of this book greatly. I've jumped back and forth on this series, since Venditti took over, and I think I'm on board. Overall, he's done some really cool things and I think this current arc is going to be so chaotic and awesome. He really has a way of flipping around stories where the good guy becomes the bad guy and vice versa. He's great at giving the reader a new way to look at the same old characters. Read Full Review

    Theres really not much to complain about. At present time, Green Lantern has everything that anybody would ever want in a superhero story. Our ring slingers are up to their necks in drama and Venditti is sure to keep putting these guys through his gauntlet. Read Full Review

    Green Lantern #27 puts the Lantern in an even worse position than they've been in since their battle with Relic. The Durlans' plot is finally revealed! Venditti and Eaglesham deliver another quality issue in this latest installment. Read Full Review

    The final sequence of Green Lantern #27 is the catalyst to a much larger story in Robert Vendittis run. The Green Lanterns are now at the mercy of every being in the universe with the ability to confront them. The GLC was already on thin ice from basically ignoring the chaos of the universe to deal with their own problems for so long, and now that everyone knows that using an energy ring causes the universe to deteriorate, theres no turning back. Venditti has changed the game for the Green Lanterns, turning them form universal protectors to the source of its chaos, and its astounding to read. Read Full Review

    Population Go - Chris Lemmerman Jan 14, 2014

    It's taken a little while, but the accelerator has been firmly pressed again for Green Lantern as Venditti sends the Green Lantern Corps spiralling into yet another war, and Eaglesham makes sure every page is a visual treasure. This is possibly the best issue of Green Lantern since #20, and sets up a lot of potential moving forward. Read Full Review

    Well I have to say I was not a fan of the last story line, but this seems like it's building to something epic.  All we need now is to tell the difference between the regular Lantern title, and Corps.  Without the title on the cover, they're pretty interchangeable.  But man I really enjoyed this, and can't wait to see how it progresses.  So grab your wallet, leave your willpower at home, and go get this issue.

    Green Lantern #27 is a thrilling issue that forces us to look at the Green Lantern Corps in a different way, plunging them into a war against beings that they are sworn to protect.  Things are going to get worse before they get better so this is the time to strap in and get ready to enjoy the ride.  Four out of five lanterns.

    A great way to start Green Lantern in the new year and Venditti is getting better with every issue. Next month starts the new arc on the double issue with the Red Lanterns and as long as the story keeps this pace and the art is on par with what Eaglesham and Wright brought us, then Green Lantern is going to be the series to watch for in 2014!

    Green Lantern Corps - iggy Jan 9, 2014

    Overall this issue started out as another normal solid Green Lantern issue, but after the Braid Clan escapes and The Durlan's declare has the Corps declare War on the universe, then it sky rockets the issue to dramatic issue that has Hal Jordan's unfortunate mistakes come back to bite him in the behind. This issue should have readers salivating to read the next issue. Read Full Review

    Nerds On The Rocks - Josh Raj Jan 8, 2014

    Overall, Green Lantern #27 was a calmer issue even though it is setting up something big. There were several important things that happened but it also is a good jumping on point for anyone interesting in finding out what is going on in the world of Hal Jordan. Hopefully, the Green Lantern Corps can fix their brand and help save the universe again. Read Full Review

    The rest of the Corps makes for an interesting supporting cast, but for too long, it's been the focus - and Hal has been lost in the crowd. Read Full Review

    Nerds Unchained - Michael Bowie Jan 11, 2014

    I know from this it may seem like I dont like crossover stories, but thats not the case at all. They can be fun and entertaining, certainly, but when they are happening every few month it becomes overkill and all it really serves to do is detract from the quality of the individual titles involved. They story that has been cued up in this issue should have me excited, but instead it just has me dreading the issues Im going to have to pick up that I normally wouldnt just to get the full picture.

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Jan 11, 2014

    Braidmen? Secret Durlans? The galaxy against the Green Lantern Corps? Parts of it sound kind of interesting, but like I said, there's an inelegance about the whole thing. Like Venditti just isn't skilled enough of a writer to make all of this flow smoothly together. Everything is kind of just bumping into and overlapping everything else instead of coming together into a good story. It's rubbing me the wrong way, that's all there is to it. Read Full Review
