    This mini-series is, like Injustice: Gods Among Us before it, a showcase for how well Taylor understands the Green Lantern franchise and can play with its many toys. Read Full Review

    Green Lantern Corps: Edge of Oblivion #3 shifts into a higher gear as the Green Lantern Corps set about to what may be their final mission.  With tempers flaring and the universe literally about the fall down around them the Green Lantern set out to find salvation for themselves and the inhabitants of Perduron.  However the initial confrontation with the series antagonist doesn't go as planned, leaving several members of the Corps in a very bad situation.  Four out of five lanterns.

    Guy Gardner's out to kick a little ass in this issue and while some of the overall story is put on hold in order to do this, we still get a decently enjoyable book that looks amazing all the way through.  Now that we're halfway through this series it looks like this is going to be a more personal story for the Lanterns instead of a Universe ending epic, but as long as it keeps delivering the heart that it does here that might not be a bad thing.   Read Full Review

    Green Lantern Corps - iggy Mar 11, 2016

    Sadly Ethan Van Sciver penciled his last issue, and once again he made this issue enjoyable. Focusing on Guy Gardner's facial expressions as they perfectly captures Guy Gardner's emotions without flaw. The single page of Guy contemplating his situation, it's the small mannerism's that bring these static images to life. Guy gently touching his Green Lantern ring, the only object that has given him safety during this trial period. His slouching shoulders and depressed facial expression tell the story of Guy Gardner. Ethan Van Sciver's detail will be missed for the last three issues, especially since most of the goodwill from this series is due to his art. Read Full Review

    That context winds up dulling Green Lantern Corps: Edge of Oblivion in a big way - we either already know what Guy and Kilowog are going to be up to, but once you start adding in sentient planets, the alien protectors of Perduron, the politics of the Corps, and all the various alien members of the team, and it winds up being a little difficult for even longtime fans to follow. That's not to say there aren't plenty of strengths to Green Lantern Corps: Edge of Oblivion - but their light could use some needed focus. Read Full Review

    Bother if you really really like Green Lantern but it certainly doesn't scratch my nostalgia itch. Read Full Review

    This book has a lot of characters carrying other characters around early on, which I thought would be something to come back around in the issue, but it really didn’t, which felt odd. I thought that Ausras looked really evil, like she was plotting something, or maneuvering the Corps into position for something. I absolutely love this book’s art, and I really don’t want Ethan Van Sciver to leave- I don’t know who is replacing him, but I will bet you anything they will have a hard time to hit the level of quality on this book’s art. Though the story left a lot to be desired. Guy and Killowog are at eachother’s throats, then back to buddy-buddy. Guy felt like he was directed pretty blatantly by Ausras, and it turned out to be a trap. So is Ausras really a good guy after all? Who knows… Is Marniel a parallel universe Black Lantern? It almost felt like they were a hybrid of Black Hand and Larfleeze- summoning avatars of death, not just constructs of dead lanterns. It was really cool looking, to say the least. This issue didn’t accomplish nearly as much as I would have liked, but it looked good doing very little, so I minded less than I probably should have. The talking dragged on, the fighting felt rushed, and the opening flashback sequence felt cut short and without much payoff, when it could have been drawn out a bit more, and brought back around in a more meaningful way this issue- though, most likely, it will come back in issue four, but I am not really waiting with baited breath for that, so we will just have to wait and see.
