GODHEAD, act 2, part 3: With the unwilling help of Kyle Rayner, Highfather at last gains control of the greatest potential weapon the multiverse has ever known: The Life Equation! But such power was never meant to be controlled, let alone weaponized not even by a god! And without his powers, Kyle is helpless to prevent the unthinkable!

    Despite a drop in art quality, Green Lantern: New Gods continues to play the second-most important role in Godhead. Read Full Review

    A story with no surprises and visuals that below average for this book make for a substandard outing. I expect better, especially in a major crossover series. Read Full Review

    While I'm digging GODHEAD, this issue really didn't do much other than smack Kyle Rayner fans in the face because of his bonehead decision making skills.  That's pretty much it..... Well that and it hammered in the the fact that the Lanterns are going to get their asses kicked hard and I think that's where we're supposed to be in the story, so we've got that.  Really the main reason you'll want this issue is the great art from Diogenes Neves and the colors of Wil Quintana.  I think Quintana has the emotional spectrum working for him because whenever I read one of his books, I gotta wear shades.  So while it's not the best we've seen from GODHEAD, it's still worth a look.  Go check it out.

    Green Lantern: New Guardians #36 lacks a lot of necessary story to make it feel as though it's strong as an individual issue, and aside from one particular moment, as an important contribution to an ongoing epic. Thankfully, the artwork saves what feels like a rather uneventful chapter in the Godhead saga. Though not bad, it doesn't come off as essential. Read Full Review

    What Green Lantern: New Guardians #36 may lack as a standalone issue it exceeds in being a vital chapter of GodHead by substantially propelling the overall narrative forward and setting the stage for the second half of this family-wide event.  The art quality isn't quite up to par with previous issues of the series despite some nice character work.  In the end the issue feel rather average overall, getting three out of five lanterns.

    New Guardians #36 pretty much steered the course with an occasional bump in the road. The plot for Godhead moves along fine and it leaves Carol and Kyle in an interesting place in whatever issue they show up next during this crossover. Read Full Review

    Godhead continues in Green Lantern: New Guardians, and while the script Justin Jordan delivers is his usual excellent, some subpar artwork drags down this issue. The idea of Highfather controlling the Life Equation is really interesting, and I'm curious to see where things go from here. Jordan knows how to write great dialogue between Carol and Kyle, and their relationship feels natural. But the biggest problem with this book is the artwork. Honestly, it's not that bad, but compared with the fantastic artwork that Brad Walker delivers on a monthly basis, Didgenes Neves' work is subpar at best. It's a serious drag on the issue, and this series (being the best GL title on the shelves right now) deserves better than this. I recommend the issue for the story, but don't expect great artwork for your money.

    Bad art, good story

    The art is not as good as the previous issue's, but it's not bad. On the other hand, the story is pretty bad. Apparently, the best way to move the plot forward is to make Kyle Rayner an incompetent retard. The point of this issue was to deliver one crucial story element, other than that not much else really happens; so it's a big problem when I'm not buying the motivation for the only relevant story beat present in this comic.
