    Im still very glad this issue exists. It helps clarify one of the largest gulfs in knowledge that has been a sticking point since the crossover began and none of the artists do a bad job, in fact theyre all good, but there are just so many breakneck shifts from one page to the next that its difficult to keep up with all the different styles and the pace of the book suffers as a result. We get the durlans from planet Durla, but theyre NOT the race of orange-skinned antennaed shapeshifters, theyre something else entirely and that part makes the first 2/3s of the issue incredibly difficult to wrap your mind around. This is still a very good, very necessary issue in the grand scheme of both the book and the greater crossover, but I dont get why it was divided up like this. Read Full Review

    Green Lantern Corps #30 serves as the last chapter of the Durlan conflict leading us to the beginning of the "Uprising" event starting in Green Lantern #31, but it's more accurate to say that it's the middle chapter in a much larger story. Interweaving the history with the Durlans risks losing the reader, but writer Van Jensen succeeds by making both the current events and the Durlan 101 segments engaging.  Four out of five lanterns.

    Art wise, the issue starts off strong with a flashback from Scott Kolins. We get more flashbacks throughout the issue, and it's the strongest art featured here. Chris Batista handles the other pages, and draws the majority of them in this issue. Normally, I find Batista's pencils to be quite accomplished, but here his work seems rushed and uneven, which strangely matches the tone of the book overall. Read Full Review

    I'm not a fan of the dual artist approach to a book unless the artists' style work well together. Unfortunately, Scott Kolins and Chris Batista don't really mesh. Read Full Review

    This issue did it's job as it did show enough about the Durlans but it didn't reveal to much of their back story. Scott Kolin's art for the Durlan's segment were nice and it worked well within the story presented. There were some nice character moments for John and Fatality, but now the real excitement can kick in with uprising next month! Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Apr 13, 2014

    Green Lantern Corps #30 gives the reader the history of the Durlan and nothing more.  The story drags and the art is horrible.  If you are following the overall arc, read it just because.  If you are not, you can save your money this month. Read Full Review

    Barely passable fill in art brings down an otherwise enlightening chapter in the Jensen run.
