    A few snags don't keep this from being an entertaining read. This is the precursor to the showdown next issue that will have lantern versus lantern. Informative and visual exciting. Read Full Review

    Overall this issue doesn't necessarily stand out but there is nothing poor about its execution; it was a fun comic to read. I will be looking forward to how the series concludes and to next issue's battle! Pickup this issue and the last three to catch up on GREEN LANTERN CORPS: EDGE OF OBLIVION before then!

    Green Lantern Corps: Edge of Oblivion #4 provides a lot of answers about what's really going on in the final days of the universe before ours, but Tom Taylor sacrifices a few things in order to provide a great deal of exposition.  The resulting exposition laden issue is still an enjoyable read and Taylor finds a new twist on one of Geoff Johns' best stories.  Ardian Syaf and Aaron Kuder pick up the reigns from Ethan Van Sciver and do a pretty great job at keeping the look of the series consistent.  Four out of five lanterns.

    A dark and action packed story. Wonderful and detailed art, really engaging the horror of the scenes that include so. But the impact of the storyline may just end in two issues which I hope does not happen. This story needs to have the ramifications carried to other lantern books. Read Full Review

    It's of course disappointing that Ethan Van Sciver couldn't finish this series, but as gifted a talent as Van Sciver is, Ardian Syaf drawing over Aaron Kuder's layouts is an impressive sight to see. This issue is still strong, despite losing one of DC's best creators. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Apr 13, 2016

    Edge of Oblivion takes a turn in this book with revealing what's actually going on with this last city of the Universe and while it works to tie the rest of the issues together, it does come off too little too late at this point since we're halfway through this series.  Hopefully now though it will be able to get right to the story without filler and end on a strong note because while I love the Green Lantern Corps, I can't say that this is one of its strongest stories.   Read Full Review

    Green Lantern Corps - iggy Apr 13, 2016

    Since this issue hinges on the twist that the two seemingly benevolent beings ended up being the true villains, I wasn't that shocked at all because of how Taylor set up this min series from issue one. At the end of the day, this slumps down Edge of Oblivion from an interesting Green Lantern story, to a below average one. On a technical level this was a good comic, but the punch is completely lacking. Read Full Review

    First off, this is my first time reviewing this series. Needless to say, this is what I feel Green Lanterns should stand for: an army of beings from all corners of the universe, leaving aside their differences, fighting against all odds, willing to sacrifice their lives for other beings they don’t even know, just because it is the right thing to do. That is exactly what the team is doing in this book and it feels right. The Green Lantern Corps. are at the edge of existence, literally, and despite their knowledge about the fact that the universe they are in now will cease to exist, so that the universe we live in can rise, they are still fighting the good fight. After last issue’s encounter with Marniel, a small group of lanterns led by Killowog are imprisoned. Though not everything is as it seems, thanks to the team’s empath, we discover Marniel is not the threat. The lanterns discover Ausras and Dismas are the true villains – not guardians, but monsters, however it’s too late. Which is good. Why you would ask? If the team was not late to discover the truth, there would be no tension left on the conflict. Marniel gives the lanterns their rings back in order to let them help stop the world-eaters Ausras and Dismas. Unexpectedly, after freeing the lanterns, Guy flees, attempting to warn Ausras about the uprising but is stopped by the rest of the lanterns. Seems Ausras got to his mind. Which is exactly what she did with John and the rest of the lanterns on their end. This places the pieces for a match of Green Lanterns vs Green Lanterns. The plot took an unexpected turn. Marniel’s extremist actions in the first issues, which made her look like a terrorist and zealot, really placed her as the antagonist before, but now we know better, don’t we? Positives The story has been done well so far, but the art, the art is the centerpiece here. Marniel’s use of the ring would give any Sinestro Corps a run for its money. She states her kind maste

    Good issue. Finally excited about this series! I hope the end of this mini is great.

    The book takes a pretty lazy turn here, and with the new art team on board, I at least expected the book to read better than it did. Marniel isn't the bad girl we thought, Ausras and dismas are the Blackest Knights (a pun we at BDC appreciated). It felt really lacking and was over before anything of worth or actual enjoyment and interest happened. This book is suffering, in no small part because of Rebirth, I am sure.
