    Lights Out picks up the crazy action from last week and takes it even further. Venditti, Jansen, Chang and Maiolo are delivering the goods here. This is the type of story that makes you thankful we are in the midst of another crossover. It demands immediate follow up so we don't have to wait to see what happens next. It doesn't look good for the Lanterns but that's what keeps us on the edge of our seats. We've heard about things changing or big repercussions before but this story is promising to do exactly that.

    Blog Of Oa - Myron Rumsey Oct 9, 2013

    For the second chapter of Lights Out, Green Lantern Corps #24 does an excellent job of putting our protagonists in a dire situation.  With their chances of defeating Relic diminishing with each passing moment I can't begin to think of how they are going to get out of this situation and while this often indicates that there's a deus ex machina on the horizon I have a great deal of trust in the writers that we're in for a roller coaster of a ride with a satisfying ending that will have the lasting repercussions they've alluded to.  A five out of five lantern book to be certain!

    Green Lantern Corps #24 is a strong entry in the Lights Out event and is filled with an energy and excitement of the Green Lantern universe being under a new regime. Any awkward feelings of transition are over and done – this is a new age and one damn entertaining crossover book. Give this one a read and I challenge you to not want to continue the event.

    Green Lantern Corps - iggy Oct 9, 2013

    This issue was a roller coaster of emotions, but the one where you want to see where the next loop is coming from. This is perhaps the best art from Chang yet along with the best script that Jensen has done to date. This was a excellent part two and this should have readers eagerly anticipate the next chapter for Lights Out. Read Full Review

    Nerds On The Rocks - Josh Raj Oct 9, 2013

    Overall, the issue keeps the story intense and the battle against Relic a real threat. Seeing John continue to have a central role in this book is a great change of pace. The art did not have the pop that is expected from Green Lantern books, but the final pages will make every Green Lantern fan gasp. Read Full Review

    IGN - Joshua Yehl Oct 9, 2013

    There were a few other odd elements -- Oa has a support staff? -- but the main one that has plagued this event is that Relic still lacks a compelling personality. In fact, he's firmly set in "let me shout my plan and everything I'm doing" mode. Still, his actions are forcing the Lanterns to reach deep within themselves to survive, and that is making for some mighty fine comic books. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Oct 9, 2013

    Green Lantern Corps #24 made me more interested in Lights Out.  The Corps is showing it's character by making each one an interesting and unique cog.  This is the Corps I've been waiting for and Jensen and Chang are delivering the goods.  Hopefully this upward trend continues with New Guardians #24.

    Crave Online - Andy Hunsaker Oct 13, 2013

    Just a little, though, and if we give them the benefit of that doubt, "Lights Out" is a unique and interesting challenge for the Green Lanterns to face, with every element of their mythos being systematically destroyed. Oa is gone. Their Central Battery is gone. Every use of their power kills their environment and hastens the end of all life, and their leader is a bull-headed jackass who sucks and is bad and is dumb. How do they adapt? Do they adapt at all? I can't wait to find out. Read Full Review

    One Quest - Chris Cobb Oct 11, 2013

    This issue of Green Lantern Corps has a lot of John Stewart being pretty badass getting a plan together ready to sacrifice everything to save as many other Green Lanterns as he can. This could probably be a pretty good entry point if you want to start reading Corps too, but haven't really done it yet. Well that's if you've at least been reading Green Lantern already.

    Newsarama - Brian Bannen Oct 14, 2013

    Green Lantern Corps brings back some of the old excitement found in Geoff Johns' heyday as the Green Lantern scribe. Van Jensen has left the heroes in a worse position than he found them, and what lies ahead for the Corps is more uncertainty. But the writers are clearly unafraid to push their characters to the brink all while changing the status quo. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Oct 12, 2013

    Lights Out continues, and this new chapter fulfills the promise that there are big shake-ups to the franchise with the new creative teams. I'm fine with that. Geoff Johns spent years on his GL status quo, so I think we're due for some kind of change-up " even if I loved everything Geoff Johns did with the franchise. Still, I'm willing to see where we go from here " even though I've dropped almost every GL book from my pull list. Read Full Review
