    Green Lantern Corps #34 is a wonderfully crafted and executed issue that explores the humanity of the characters while ramping up the dramatic tension.  This is not a light issue and there are no yucks here to brighten the mood, nor should there be.  Solemn,  powerful and visually stunning, this issue is a superb coda to the first year of Jensen's run on the series.  Five out of five lanterns.

    I really dug this epilogue to Uprising dealing with the hunt for Fatality and the twist ending blew me away.  This continues to be a great if not the best Lantern title going on right now and I recommend it to anyone who is a Lantern fanboy.  While I thought the hunt for Fatality would last for awhile, I guess with Futures End and GodHead coming it had to be a single issue conclusion and surprisingly it doesn't hurt the story at all.  Go check it out and see how John Stewart's love life is going.

    Jensen, Chang and Maiolo are all talented enough to keep me reading this book to see what happens next, even if Im not thrilled about the direction that its going, and this issue stands as a great one-shot and a decent jumping-on point. There are still unanswered threads, Von Daggle aims to tie at least one of them up, and while another crossover may be the last thing I want to see at this point from the GL Universe, I cant deny that this creative team will make it interesting and enthralling to read. And until then, its great to see some development and intimacy with Stewarts character. Read Full Review

    The reveal is as well handled as it is heartbreaking. Yrra's violation and John's pain come through stunningly well. But as for the revelation itself? I am glad to see the unfortunate implications of Yrra's transformation explored. But I wonder if there wasn't a better way. Read Full Review

    The ending is pure story telling bliss. Remove the word balloons of John scream and whispering no and you still understand what is going on. Leaving us with a broken John Stewart. You build characters up only to tear them down and that's what Van Jensen has done. That's not a negative though, it makes the story more engaging. It's something all of us can understand. Let's see how John is in October when the New Gods show up. Read Full Review

    Van Jensen is hard at work playing into the aftermath of Uprising. The biggest part of that for this issue has to do with John Stewart and Fatality's relationship, or as it turns out, the lack of one. Unfortunately, the results of these unexpected revelations aren't so much emotionally resonant as they are disturbing. Read Full Review

    After some strong chapters of the " Uprising" crossover I decided to give this book a shot , and man am I glad I did. Bernard Changs art is beautiful and at the same time captures the tragedy (on multiple levels )that is the story of John Stewart and Fatality. Thankfully Van Jensen doesn't drag out the reunion and the lasting impact it has on them is one that I'm looking forward to seeing play out.
