    This is absolutely the sleeper hit of the Lantern books. Since its more focused on the Corps, with Stewart as the leader, we get a lot of new and very interesting characters as well as one of the most well earned romances in the DCU. Im incredibly happy with how the Lantern recruits have come into their own in a very short amount of time and issues like this that bring their pasts and cultures into sharp focus are welcome additions to a cosmic series that is very human focused. Im also always a fan of seeing Hal Jordan put into his place, so this issue is especially delightful. Read Full Review

    The book is a lovely set up for the upcoming storyline dealing with the Green Lanterns past transgressions. The universe is tired of the Corps rule and their lack of input when it comes to universal law. Its time that the Green Lantern Corps rebuild its credibility again with their new leader, Hal Jordan.

    Artist Bernard Chang is no slouch, either. He's really hit his stride on this book. Characters are full of life and personality. Settings are detailed and immersive. The paneling flows well to tell the story at a pleasing pace. Plus, I just love the way he draws the many different aliens that populate this book. Best of all, in a comic full of laser blasts and gladiatorial matches, the best part is the two-page spread of the newly constructed headquarters on Oa. Well done, guys, that is some killer stuff right there. Read Full Review

    Nerds On The Rocks - Josh Raj Dec 11, 2013

    Overall, this issue did a good job addressing a lot of issues that needed to be addressed and did it in a way that was engaging. The art really worked well and had a lot of realism especially when John and Hal had their “talk”. This book is about the Corps and this issue did a great job addressing the needs of the corps, lets hope that continues going forward. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Dec 11, 2013

    Green Lantern Corps #26 is a good return to what I want from the book.  There are various new and interesting recruits off on adventures, John Stewart showing why he belongs as the leader and Hal getting punched in the face.  We also get a mystery brewing that could take down the Corps, possibly from within. This feels like the start of better things to come. Read Full Review

    Hero Nuggets - Steve 'Wallboy' Tomei Dec 15, 2013

    Jenson and Venditti string together a captivating story that addresses concerns with the recent changes to the Green Lantern Corps, and is by far one of their best issues since they began writing the book. In addition, the art by Bernard Chang does not disappoint. This issue is an absolute pleasure to read. Read Full Review

    Love the art, bored by the story. I want lanterns to use rings, not begrudge their use. Read Full Review

    Green Lantern Corps - iggy Dec 12, 2013

    This issue had pretty much everything, almost to point where it seems it was making from last months venture into Zero Year. The secret plot of The Durlans is exciting, not to mention that the Khund are still out there. Combine all this with the growth of the Jruk and John's characterization of the Hal situation well this was near perfect. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Dec 14, 2013

    I guess I should be reading Green Lantern Corps more often. I've been avoiding the title because I simply don't care about Jon Stewart, but it seems this might be the book where we get traditional GL stories, instead of the Hal Jordan show over in Green Lantern. In this comic, someone stands up to Hal's insane new laws and policies " unfortunately, that person is Jon Stewart. Read Full Review

    Blog Of Oa - Myron Rumsey Jan 1, 2014

    Overall the issue is good read however the titular moment between John and Hal fails to strike a strong chord, suffering from brevity that prevents it from being a great moment of conflict between two great characters whose strong friendship is challenged by their differing perspectives.  Three out of five lanterns.
