GODHEAD, act 2, part 2: With Hal Jordan missing, John Stewart must take control of the Green Lanterns and rally the Indigo Tribe, the Red Lanterns and even the Sinestro Corps to work together, or the lone remaining Corps, the Star Sapphires, will be wiped out of existence by the New Gods! But leading the Greens is one thing giving orders to Sinestro is something altogether different!

    Bernard Chang is an absolute boon to this book as usual with his dynamic character designs, and generally great layouts. However, there are a few issues with the artwork in this issue in both areas as some characters come off as rushed, and a few panels are tough to follow. Read Full Review

    Green Lantern/New Gods: Godhead continues to be an engaging and entertaining crossover, and this week's Green Lantern Corps #36 is no exception. I'm still eagerly awaiting to see some merciful actions from Highfather and his crew at some point so there's some distinction between those from Apokalips and those from New Genesis. They Can't all be bad, right? Read Full Review

    Green Lantern Corps #36 is an entertaining issue, tying the recent events in the series to the GodHead event in order to make this sprawling story a bit more personal.  Van Jensen, Bernard Chang and Marcelo Maiolo create the first male Star Sapphire and return a fan favorite character back to the spotlight.  Despite a few artistic bumps in the road the issue is a visual treat, earning four out of five lanterns.

    While insignificant in the bigger picture, in this exact moment it's a victory for readers who have gotten worn down by seeing their heroes being thrown in the mud. With that being said, that is not true climax but rather the introduction of something that some Lanterns fans have been asking for sometime. Normally I would spoil but in this instance I wont. Yes once a reader puts all the clues together it's a bit predictable but given how it was done the predictability is null in void. This issue of Green Lantern Corps felt more like previous issues had prior to Godhead. Read Full Review

    While I really liked this addition to the GODHEAD story, there were a few things with the art that didn't jive with me or left me confused by what I was seeing, but besides that it was a battle of the Gods that I loved seeing.  We've got some new elements here that will really change the Green Lantern Corps world if they continue and I love surprises that I don't see coming.  Go check out this part to GODHEAD and join the fight with our Lantern heroes.

    GREEN LANTERN CORPS #36 is a mixed bag. Folks not reading every part of Godhead may find this issue a lot more enjoyable than those reading everything because this issue feels so similar to last week's GREEN LANTERN #36. The formula being used for the issue becomes glaring and while the story is fun at parts, overall, it's a tad dull. Luckily, the art team pumps out some amazing artwork to elevate the book. This is the point where I'm a tad worried about Godhead and how it's going to continue to play out. We're not even halfway through the story and I feel like this issue and the last issue were a bit of a drop in quality of story. Read Full Review

    Godhead continues this week, and the results are a mixed bag. This issue is strange, since so much of it really works well, but there are a few parts that don't work, and they're really distracting. Distracting enough to drag the score of the book down below what it would be without those elements. Now, while I like the idea Van Jensen had with John Stewart at the end of this issue, it just seems too convenient to be believable. The explanation is rushed, and it doesn't add enough for me to buy it. Bernard Chang's artwork is, for the most part, really good. But there are some panels that just feel flawed to me, like some of the details aren't tuned up enough to deliver the desired impact. But, with all of that said, this is still a good issue, with some good surprises. While this might be one of the weaker chapters in Godhead, it's still good enough that I can recommend it to you.

    Godhead is still way too repetitive, the formula for act 2 has changed slightly, but it is already apparent. The art is good for the most part but some of facial expressions aren't matching the way the dialog is meant to be delivered. At least John Stewart looks pretty in pink.
