    While this wasn't a very exciting issue, the story was enough to keep my eyes glued the entire time.  Very thought provoking, and a little sad actually.  Everything seems to have changed since the last New Guardians Annual, and Justin Jordan is doing his finest to explore the powers and mind of the White Lantern.  I'm completely engrossed and after reading this issue, I immediately want more.  So join my obsession and check out New Guardians.

    A fun follow up to an Annual, with a nice nod to another lantern, but nothing in the story that will thrill. This issue just makes you think, ‘That was okay.' Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Amy Beddoes May 21, 2014

    GREEN LANTERN: NEW GUARDIANS #31 not only serves as an excellent primer for new readers, but is an enthralling tale in its own right, providing both a self-contained story that fleshes out lesser explored corners of the DC Universe and a laundry list of hooks for the story to come. Bringing together both high-stakes cosmic action and a very personal sense of loss, this series is a real page-turner that will leave you wanting more. If you were thinking of getting into GL: NEW GUARDIANS, or even the GREEN LANTERNbooks in general, now is the time. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Corey 'Undeadpool' Schroeder May 21, 2014

    This issue takes the series in a direction at once foreign and familiar, and Im already on-board. We still get the U.S.S. White Lantern (still no Lanterns Log, stardate, I AM WAAAAITIING!) and its clear that Carol Ferris the Guardians still have a role to play but seeing the two different foci is a nice change of pace. Im just hoping we get to resume some of the unexplored storylines once they come back together, rather than returning to status quo, but I have faith in the creative team to make it compelling either way.

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Noah Sharma May 24, 2014

    Justin Jordan strikes me as a writer who always has more fun ideas that he had to cut out, especially in his DC work, and it's a feeling that comes through especially strongly in this one-shot story. Despite being too big for its binding, this story proves that this new leg of Kyle's journey will retain the heart and inventiveness of its predecessors. Read Full Review

    Infinite Comix - Adam Barndt May 27, 2014

    Green Lantern New Guardians #31 does an excellent job of blending heavy hitting action with esoteric musings and solid character development in an issue that deepens one of the most obscure and unique corners of the Green Lantern mythos – a tall order for a transitional piece which by and large features only two characters.

    IGN - Mike Logsdon May 22, 2014

    Justin Jordan gets back to delving into the social commentary that he's been doing in this book for a while now. As he's done in the past, he doesn't overload us with any particular viewpoint, but he uses that as a foundation to build a fun and exciting sci-fi story. Read Full Review

    Blog Of Oa - Myron Rumsey May 22, 2014

    Issue 31 is a good if somewhat uneventful issue with Jordan spending the lion's share of the pages to position Kyle for what comes next.  For that reason it almost feels like a filler issue that you could almost skip reading and not have missed too much.  I enjoyed the Mogo back story and it was for me the most interesting part of the book and while I found the issue enjoyable I put it down looking more forward to the potential of the title's future than anything else.  Three out of five lanterns.

    Green Lantern Corps - iggy May 22, 2014

    This issue was more of what New Guardians has been about post Lights Out, but the stakes feel higher since the annual. However it feels like now the series is treading water just a tad as it waits for the next big moment to happen to cast of New Guardians. Read Full Review
