    This was easily one of the better issues of Godhead, which overall, has been really good. It feels like there's real advancement in the story here and numerous moments worth checking out. The only downside of the issue is the separate art team which kicks in halfway through the book. The new team isn't bad but the switch is startling and each artist draws these characters in different ways. Aside from that, Jensen nails this issue of Godhead and it opens the door for some great things in the upcoming issues. I highly recommend this issue, unless you aren't reading Godhead. Then, you'll be in the Land of the Lost. Read Full Review

    Good story, but the art–half of it–hurts this. I'm just so thankful that a Green Lantern beat a New God! Read Full Review

    While some character actions seem to come out of left field here, I can say that the ending to this book made up for a slow beginning by a long run.  With Solid art and characters we love just kicking a whole lot of ass, this is book that you'll be like "Meh" in the beginning and then screaming for more by the end.  The real fight against the New Gods starts here.  Check it out.

    Green Lantern Corps #37 sees a number of unexpected surprises and turning points that should please most fans. The plot moves forward a great deal here making this a substantially important issue for Godhead. Read Full Review

    Blog Of Oa - Myron Rumsey Dec 11, 2014

    Green Lantern Corps #37 tips the scales ever so slightly back towards the Lanterns and further paints Highfather as a despotic ruler blindly obsessed with winning at all costs.  Van Jensen's script propels the GodHead event towards its conclusion, however the issue is hampered by having two artists whose styles go together like oil and water and the jolting differences are impossible to overlook, impacting the book's overall rating.  Three out of four lanterns.

    Green Lantern Corps #37 does it's job, moving us nicely along in the final act of the Godhead saga. But the usage of multiple artists takes down a few pegs what is otherwise a solid issue. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Dec 16, 2014

    The thing that holds back Green Lantern Corps - and the Green Lantern franchise as a whole - is just the fact that it has to preach to the converted rather than serve up anything tremendously new about the DC universe. And for a lot of diehards, that's fine - it just doesn't make this book a "must-read" in the way that a Batgirl or a Ms. Marvel might be. It's a book that doesn't succeed purely on execution, but instead stacks the deck with previous continuity and tremendous scale. It's fun popcorn reading, and considering how long "Godhead" is lasting, that sort of fan service serves its purpose. Read Full Review

    Green Lantern Corps #37 has some really interesting character and story developments that have been missing from Godhead for some time. It is just a shame that the art teams don't mesh well together at all. Read Full Review

    This sadly was the worst issue to date for Green Lantern Corps, an uninspired story with fine art to start with but art change it was really hurt the issue overall. Not even Highfathers' characterization could have saved this issue. Read Full Review

    Godhead is quietly becoming the most underrated event in comic books these days. This is another solid issue and we see Highfather and his facist ideals clear as day in this issue. I'm hoping this event has lasting ramifications for the future of DC, it seems like it's setting up something bigger that's looming on the horizon. Sinestro is the pepper added to this particular issue as he banters with a few new gods. A solid chapter even though Stewart takes a backseat in his own book this go-around.

    Another strong Godhead Chapter.

    The story starts to get ridiculous followed shortly by a dive bomb in the quality of the art. There must have been extenuating circumstances behind the scenes of this comic, as if half of the pages needed to be turned in within a few days. A lot of the bad art is in silhouette to hide details as much as possible. This entire comic is just half-assed all around, it just doesn't communicate well and doesn't have any substance worth reading into anyways.
