    A pretty strong blend of space opera and courtroom drama, with Tomasi putting on his best Law and Order writer's cap. Read Full Review

    Fernando Pasarin puts forth a solid effort with his pencils, but due to the flawed coloring of Gabe Eltaeb, the artwork does not match the high caliber of the story. Most of the pages feature so much green that characters become indecipherable from one another. Lots of green is expected in a Green Lantern book, but I can't recall having been this overwhelmed by it before. The book is starving for visual diversity. In fact, pages in the Planetary Citadel stand out as the best in the book simply because they utilize a wide variety of purples, blacks, and blues. Read Full Review

    Artist Fernando Pasarin, meanwhile, really strikes a great balance between looking iconic and being expressive " you really share in Guy Gardner's outrage as you see his face twist and contort. He reminds me a little bit, at this point, of Barry Kitson with some of that Ethan Van Sciver snarl. Put all that together, and while the outcome of this first issue is never actually in doubt, and you have a surprisingly excellent event opener on your hands. Read Full Review

    It's no surprise that John Stewart is found guilty but despite the lack of shock value one the last panel Green Lantern Corps #9 plays out like a taut legal drama complete with manipulations of the judicial system and evidence tampering. Well balanced with that is the human drama of seeing a man who many rally behind having their choices used to compromise them all for the sake of a larger agenda by those who have the power to control the outcome. Despite an overpowering coloring job this is a great issue. Read Full Review

    Crave Online - Iann Robinson May 23, 2012

    The art from Fernando Pasarin is acceptable but that's about it. Pasarin's panels feel rushed. The details on the human faces change every few pages and there's not much detail to what's going on. He also appreciates the far off shot of multiple characters way too much. The work in those panels is sketchwork at best; it doesn't look like finished art. Green Lantern Corps #9 features no war, no plot development and nothing that would push a reader to buy the next issue. Read Full Review

    The Comic Book Revue - Jay Mattson May 18, 2012

    Peter J. Tomasi needs to step up his game. Green Lantern Corps was doing great, but mucking it up with legal drama is murdering it's reputation. Read Full Review
