     Green Lantern Corps #33 is filled with great moments as serves as a great conclusion to Uprising.  Whether you were caught in Van Jensen's swerve or not has little bearing on whether or not you'll enjoy the issue anyway because of how well the reveal is handled and how much more there is to like about this issue.  John Stewart is put through yet another emotional wringer and while Hal Jordan and the Corps have seemingly won the war there are wounds to heal and no time to rest with the Shadow Empire looming in the....well, the shadows!  Five out of five lanterns.

    I know a lot about the actual issue isn't explained, that is something that you will have to find out for yourselves. The only other thing I will say is the beginning is not the only surprise. Jensen also decides to throw in something that I can't analyse, and we won't figure out until next time. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Jul 9, 2014

    This ending gives you the satisfying final battle that you were waiting for while opening up new story arcs for both the Green Lantern and Green Lantern Corps titles.  The issue was full of badass battles reminiscent of Superboy Prime's GL fights from years past, delivering us a WTF issue that you had to read jaw agape from beginning to end.  Also I usually don't mention letterers, but props to Dave Sharpe on doing a hell of a job.  He lettered the hell out this book.  Go check out the end of Green Lantern: Uprising, and jump into the final battle.

    Comic Vine - Corey 'Undeadpool' Schroeder Jul 9, 2014

    The plot may not hold together perfectly, and I may not fully embrace where it seems like its going, but I still say its a very good conclusion to a great cross-over. While it seems like future issues may not be returning to Stewart's recruits, I can't hardly hold that against the book NOW (and haven't). The ending is the hardest part of a story to land, and Jensen, Chang and Maiolo were still able to deliver a satisfying, consistently good finale. Whether Stewarts recruits are front-and-center for the next storyline, Im still onboard to see where he goes next. Read Full Review

    Bernard Chang returns to provide some of the most stylistic, dynamic, and consistent art in the entire stable of DC Comics artists. His angular figures always prove to be striking and his layouts continue to be exciting to follow while delivering the full impact of Jensen's script. Read Full Review

    Green Lantern Corps - iggy Jul 10, 2014

    With this being the end to the crossover, Jensen has the job of teasing the next threat of the “Shadow Empire.” Thereby ending the Uprising crossover. This was another solid issue from the team, and while it didn't start out amazing the book touched down smoothly. Read Full Review

    This was a really good issue in my opinion. It doesn't completely wash away the bad taste that Uprising as a whole has put in my mouth, but it was still really good. The art was great as usual as well as the story, even though it did suffer from some bad dialogue. Read Full Review

    Wow, this is a really good issue. The reveal is unexpected and well executed. I really feel for John Stewart, and I'm a little disturbed learning how far the Durlan was willing to go to maintain its cover up to now. Ending on a more personal part of the story is a great way to compliment the high caliber action of the previous issue and its false ending. The artwork is also fantastic, I like the panels that are rendered simply in red and white to give more emotional punch. Congratulations to the whole team behind Uprising for sticking the landing.

    Jensen and Chang really stick the landing here in the final chapter of "Uprising".They deliver a strong finish to what has been one of the better crossovers in the Lantern books.
