    Weird Science - Eric Shea Aug 6, 2014

    The aftermath of Uprising is a quiet one with this issue, but the calm was a nice break from the over the top battles we've had for months.  Just a really nice low key story focusing on Hal's guilt for using the ring after the events of Lights Out and having some R&R with his family on Mogo.  New to Green Lantern this month is artist Rob Hunter, who's first seven pages in this book is the main action, which is really something and makes the beginning of this issue pop.  So while this won't get your adrenaline pumping, it will definitely keep you entertained and will make you grateful for the break in the story.

    Aside from the teaser on the last page, not a single thing of plot importance happens in this issue. And it's really, really nice. If you're just getting into this series, it may not be the best issue to reel you in, but with a nice wrap-up of the last big arc and a hook for the next, you could pick worse places to start. If you've been following the series already, you won't be missing anything important if you skip this issue, but I'd buy it nonetheless. Big things are happening in the near future. It won't hurt to stop, breathe, and enjoy a bit of Khundish ale with familiar faces. Read Full Review

    IGN - Mike Logsdon Aug 7, 2014

    For a change, this issue is mostly one of conversations, and it's one that answers a question that Venditti himself raised when he introduced the concept of the emotional reservoir. That said, some of the scenes featured seem kind of unnecessary and don't really contribute to the overall thesis of the issue. Read Full Review

    GREEN LANTERN #34 is an alright issue. It feels like merely a filler issue with one hell of an ending. There are some moments in here that simply don't make any logical sense, but there's also a lot of heart here. It doesn't offer the reader too much other than a glimpse of what's to come in October with Godhead. It's not a bad issue, but not one you have to race to the LCS to get. If you want a bit of the antagonist's motivation for the upcoming story, pick this up. Overall, it's just ok. Read Full Review

    Blog Of Oa - Myron Rumsey Aug 7, 2014

    Overall Green Lantern #34 is a good issue providing a much needed pause to the cosmic battles which have become part and parcel with the Green Lantern universe.  While this issue reminds us that Hal Jordan has a lot on his mind and that he is a human being, it feels like the issue could have been much stronger if that had been its sole focus.  That and the art inconsistencies affected my overall rating of the issue, which is three out of five lanterns.

    Green Lantern Corps - iggy Aug 7, 2014

    This issue is exactly what the Green Lantern needed after months of war. Nothing wrong with an issue that takes it's time to smell the roses, a calm before the storm. The art by both Tan and Coccolo meshed perfectly with Coccolo doing the heavy lifting with his excellent vista during Hal and Jim's talk. Read Full Review

    Buccaneer Book Reviews - Sir James Nerdcaster Aug 11, 2014

    This issue feels like a filler, once that is a little forced. Ok, so it also serves as a segue into the next arc but most of it still feels a little bland. Simon Baz is essentially a cameo in this. Hal has some nice scenes so it isn't all bad. Read Full Review

    A cool, character oriented issue.

    As usual the art is inconsistent. Hal in particular should look like himself in a book where he's the featured character and don't even get me started on Simon Baz....I was looking forward to seeing him , that is until I saw him. That aside it was nice to get a break in the action and re-establish that Hal is a guy with a family and sort of regular life problems once you get past the part about him being leader of a universe spanning police force.

    A lull in the constant space opera battles is nice but on the other hand, this issue didn't really strike and personal notes like I think it wanted to. Hopefully Simon Baz will stick around longer and actually get something to do for once... And please don't turn this into a Future's End tie-in.
