    We The Nerdy - Jonathan Crean Jul 3, 2014

    Venditti starts us off with the Durlan fleet invading the planet Zezzen for their seamlessly endless power supply and the Lantern Corp are racing to get there in time on Mogo (their now mobile command planet). Hal Jordan then leads the corp into battle against the Durlan and puts everything on the line to literally hold the line. With a few awesome twists and great one liners that we have come to expect from Venditti the story progressed amazingly with almost nonstop action. Read Full Review

    Complaints aside, I cant wait to see what happens in GREEN LANTERN CORPS, and thats saying something for a crossover title. Its not a perfect issue, but it doesnt need to be one as the overall story holding up has been consistent and great, and its flaws are easy to ignore. The panels that work far, far outnumber the ones that dont and give this issue the image of a grand, sweeping epic, an image it rightly earns. Assuming the final issue makes good on the rest of the series quality, Uprising stands to end as one of Green Lanterns truly great events. Read Full Review

    A throwaway scene for added color - or some sinister foreshadowing?Green Lantern #33 is a great issue that represents a lot of what fans like about the Green Lantern universe, a science fiction adventure that provides escapist entertainment and high stakes.  Robert Venditti and Van Jensen have a lot of plans for the Green Lantern books and if this issue is representative for what they have in store then we've got a great deal to look forward to.  Four out of five lanterns.

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Jul 3, 2014

    While I'm loving Uprising, this issue seems a little on the weaker side of things especially leading up to the final part of the story.  Now don't get me wrong this is still a good issue where we see Hal's leadership shine, and begin to see our long time hero really feel comfortable in his new role.  The battle though just came off as anticlimactic and it's possible that that was the purpose all along to just give us an appetizer before next week's main course in Green Lantern Corps #33.  Still a fun issue, and I hope that the conclusion to Uprising knocks my socks off like the majority of this story has for the past couple months.  Go check it out so you too can be part of all the ring slinging fun.

    Infinite Comix - Jay Mattson Jul 9, 2014

    The fifth chapter of "Uprising" is one of the best issues of Green Lantern in the past six months. It progresses the story and makes a lot of good choices, right up until the end. The late-in-the-game faux pas means Green Lantern #33 is not perfect, but the art alone makes up quite a bit. The only glaring problem with the title now is the utter dominance of story over characterization. Read Full Review

    Outright Geekery - Adam Jul 8, 2014

    The ending to this issue is just terrible. They basically end the entire Uprising story in this issue in a satisfying way only to have another lantern pop up out of no where to tell us something else is wrong in the most vague way possible. This really just does nothing but piss me off. It's a very poor hook to get me to buy Green Lantern Corp next week that would not have worked if I didn't already pull it every month. Its a good thing this issue was just one long fight scene because the issue would have been terrible if that kind of sloppy witting was present throughout the book. I've also never really found the Durlans to be that compelling, so their defeat here, while fun to watch, didn't really resonate with me in any profound way. Read Full Review

    Green Lantern Corps - iggy Jul 3, 2014

    The issue was your typical rally issue for our heroes and in that sense it almost felt a bit bland. Simply because of how the event has played out, but it's saved with the vague distress call at the end. Forcing the readers to imagine what horrors could have happened. Lucky for all of us we only have to wait one week. Read Full Review

    Green Lantern's half of the "Uprising" crossover comes to an unspectacular end this month. Despite its flaws, this isn't really a bad issue, just an underwhelming one. Robert Venditti has done such fine work in the last two issues of "Uprising" that seeing it end in such a generic fashion is disappointing. An overly simplistic plot that doesn't deviate enough from expectations dooms the issue, despite some winning character moments from Venditti or any number of strong layouts from Tan. There's still a lot of good here, but mistakes were made at the plotting stage that the book can't recover from. Read Full Review

    Straight up action issue here, and it looks good. The segments with the Zezzen children are off-putting and kind of cheesy, they didn't add much and screwed up the tone.

    It was good just not great. Sure there was action and it gave you that moment of feeling triumphant against overwhelming odds that you wanted however it was a fleeting one that only lasted a handful of panels. While were on the subject of panels , I usually don't complain about the art unless I find it distracting and it was here. Tan's consistency varies quite a bit from one panel to the next. It runs the gambit from nice to decent to yuck. I enjoyed Hal's jokes and they worked for the most part in the story but his song at the end was a little bit over the top. It felt like Ryan Reynolds trying too hard to be funny ,not just in the GL movie but every movie he's in.
