Godhead, act 3, part 3: The clock is ticking for the multi-colored Lanterns to stop the takeover of the Universe by the New Gods. But their ranks are rapidly thinning, and their greatest hope is out of commission! Hope comes in many forms, though, and Saint Walker, erstwhile member of the Blue Lanterns, will make a discovery that will prove pivotal to the fate of all!

    I freaking love this issue!  We've got Kyle having to face up for how he used the Life Equation in a previous issue that I knew was going to come back to haunt him and we've got our Lantern heroes showing that they are more than just a ring when push comes to shove combined with excellent art, this issue is one of the best that GODHEAD has to offer.  You should totally check it out and continue your adventure of Lanterns Vs. New Gods. Read Full Review

    This saga is suffering from fatigue, with a story that seems pointless and lackluster art. Read Full Review

    Green Lantern: New Guardians #37 has good moments, but loses much of its internal charm to the overall Godhead event. Read Full Review

    GREEN LANTERN: NEW GUARDIANS#37 is a solid issue for Godhead but feels a tad like there's too many cooks in the kitchen. There's a pretty obvious line in the sand between the things Justin Jordan wanted to put into the book and the things he had to put into the book to move along the story. What we're left with is a decent issue that is by no means the worst part of this event, but a pretty middle of the road issue that serves the purpose of connecting a group of lanterns with each other. I'd still give this a mild recommendation because it is a lot of fun to read, but just a bit weaker than other Godhead issues. Read Full Review

    Blog Of Oa - Myron Rumsey Dec 17, 2014

    Green Lantern: New Guardians #37 provides the necessary reunion between several of the main cast but fails to develop the GodHead story in a meaningful way,  Readers who don't regularly follow the series will likely find it less satisfying than those who are routinely along to witness Kyle Rayner's exploits.  As we prepare to head into the final week of the latest Green Lantern event this issue doesn't feel like it is as much a part of the third act of a sprawling cosmic saga as it does a regular issue of a series.  Three out of five lanterns.

    And the week prior to that, writer Justin Jordan announced his departure anyway, much like next week's Red Lanterns being Charles Soule's final issue. It's a tough time to feel as invested in the Green Lantern line at this moment with so much transition in the near future. It sort of spoils the fun we've had with the crossover thus far. Let's hope the final 3 chapters make up for it. Read Full Review

    While New Guardians had some good character moments (albeit a bit oddly placed) it still feels like the story hasn't moved an inch with three chapters to go. Plus that cover art is possibly worst cover I've seen yet. Read Full Review

    I loved this issue. Not sure why the low reviews. Great next chapter in a fun event.

    So, I guess I like this book more than most people do. The story that Justin Jordan tells in this issue is great. We're seeing more nuance in the New Gods. Where in the first two acts, they were cast as villains who were out to destroy our heroes for "the greater good", we're now seeing some of the New Gods coming out less as black and white, and more shades of gray. The battle with Highfather is handled very well, taking up only a couple of pages, but leaving a great cliffhanger to come back for next week. Diogenes Neves and Rodney Buchemi do a great job communicating the more somber moments between Carol and Kyle, the hope that Kyle has when he gets his ring back, and the pompous attitude of Highfather before attacking the heroes at the end. Overall, a great issue of Godhead, with good storytelling and artwork, as well as a great cliff hanger for next week's three issues that will bring this story to a conclusion. This issue is highly recommended.

    Not a bad issue but it's only an obligatory read if you're following the Godhead event. Highfather is a bit of an ass and to be honest his personality is actually too similar to Darkseid for me to appreciate. He's very authoritarian, mechanical, and ruthless. I mean he slaughtered a whole planet already which is something Darkseid would do. They might as well start a competition between brothers at this point. On the other hand it is fun to see all the Power Rangers er...different Lantern Corps members to team up and fight the big bad villains.

    The art isn't as good as previous issue, but it works. The story isn't bad, but could be better. if I had a dollar for every double cross in this event series I'd be breaking even on the cost of each issue. It's all too convenient and unearned.
