    Ordinarily an artist team this large creates problems when one shifts into the other, but I actually could barely tell when the transition happened. It was only when I REAAAAALLY looked a second time (after noticing how many names were on the title) that I even noticed, so good on them for that as well. This is an enjoyable issue, but I was a little disappointed by the very sudden tone shift. As much as Ive enjoyed the smaller, self-contained stories, Id have liked to have seen another issue focusing on what was happening on the massive, dark station. Read Full Review

    Though not quite as gripping as the previous issue, this was an excellent conclusion to the arc, and despite the sour note listed above, the finale was genuinely affecting. If you're a new reader, do not start with this issue, but if you've been following this story, you won't be disappointed. Read Full Review

    With this issue, Jordan really brings the emotionality of the Templar Guardians to bear. Jordan has done an impressive job of making the Guardians much closer to human than we've ever seen, and this issue is the biggest challenge that the newest of Guardians have had to face. Read Full Review

    New Guardians #34 wrapped up this twisted Psion story in a neat bow. Brad Walker continues to excel as a storyteller while also doing some amazing splash pages and breathtaking action sequences. Just remember ping,ping, ping. Read Full Review

    With the conclusion to this dark twisted story, I find myself wishing more from it other than the gloom and doom ending we received.  I know that everything can't be sunshine and rainbows all the time, but in a book that deals with the power of using your emotions, there didn't seem to be much exuding from our character's other than complete despair.  Depression aside, the book looked great as usual and even though I wasn't a fan of the core concept of the story, it was a interesting way to get us to GodHead and preparing us for what kind of loss and horrors we might expect from the future.

    Geeked Out Nation - Jay Bamberhil Aug 21, 2014

    Since Justin Jordan took over Green Lantern: New Guardians, he has done a masterful job of creating a series that fits perfectly within the Green Lantern universe while writing a book that is very distinct and unique, making this book a "must buy." Issue #34 just didn't live up to the previous issues in his run. Its ending felt abrupt and even the inclusion of the Mother Box, while making some sense contextually, felt a little forced as we move into the crossover with the New Gods in the Green Lantern event "Godhead". There has been enough promise in this series to have hope that great things continue, but the ending to this arc was ultimately dissatisfying. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Jason Inman Aug 25, 2014

    Green Lantern: New Guardians started out in the New 52 with a lot of promise. Now, the book seems aimless, and looking for a direction. When major character deaths mean nothing to the overall direction of your book's story, maybe it's time to go back to the drawing board. Read Full Review

    It looks good, but the story is dreadful. This should be read like watching television with the sound turned off. Read Full Review

    As a conclusion to the Psion story, this issue felt kind of disappointing. There's very little in actual conflict with the Psions, and the end with the team leaving feels really rushed. It probably doesn't help that the book has to do the 5-year jump next month, and then GodHead starting in October, but I have to think the writing/art team knew this going in, and could have fleshed this out better. Not a bad issue on its own, but the conclusion leaves a lot to be desired.
