    Comic Bastards - Jordan Claes Sep 15, 2016

    I'm so excited about the direction that Green Lanterns is taking; it's been a non-stop, fuel-injected wild ride thus far and it has no signs of slowing or gearing down. It's made me laugh, provided moments of genuine introspection and overall has consistently been a kick-ass, solid book since its inception. I couldn't find a stone to level at any aspect of Green Lanterns, even if I wanted to. So to Sam Humphries and the rest of the creative team, just keep doing what you're doing because right now " Green Lanterns is one seriously good book. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Sep 14, 2016

    Since I've been pretty down on this series, I was shocked as hell at how much I enjoyed reading this issue.  We finally have some decent interactions between our two Lantern heroes and it brightens up the whole feel of the book........ not to mention the great colors and art that are throughout.  I really hope that this series can keep up this momentum because for the first time, Green Lanterns is a series I want to read.

    DC Comics News - Tony Farina Sep 14, 2016

    The reason that John Stewart is my favorite Green Lantern of all time is that he was complex as a person. Being a Green Lantern was not his only existence. Mosaic was such great title from back in the day. This book seems to be crafted in that same format. There is enough action to keep the pace fast, but the story matters. If things keep going on this trajectory, there is a chance that Jessica Cruz will soar past John as my favorite with Simon Baz as a close second. Read Full Review

    Green Lantern Corps - iggy Sep 15, 2016

    Green Lanterns overall was a better issue than the previous chapter, thankfully the art was consistent enough for me to not be jarred when Herbert and Conrad switched pages. I'm still dubious about this Phantom Ring, but seeing Jessica and Baz just interacting with each is well done and is the best part of this series. Just don't make them be romantically linked. Hopefully the art stays consistent going forward. Read Full Review

    The improved relations between Jessica and Simon give me renewed hope for the Lanterns title. Gone is the constant bickering and I have less disdain for Simon. I can't say Jessica “earned” her first construct as it seemed to come out of nowhere, but I am happier for it and hopefully we will be rewarded in the next arc. I finally can say I am happy I didn't drop this title. Read Full Review

    The GCRN - Dan Clark Oct 7, 2016

    One of the benefits of bringing in more diverse characters is a story like this one. We are able to become exposed to customs and cultures that are not normally featured in our media. At the same time we learn about who these superheroes are as people. Jessica and Simon may have had force partnership but their friendship is being earned bit by bit. Read Full Review

    IGN - Joe Ruggirello Sep 15, 2016

    As with a few other Rebirth titles, the initial arc of Green Lanterns has come very close to wearing out its welcome. Fortunately things finally wrap up in this issue, and while the lead characters continue to be quite charming the book suffers from excessive inner monologue panels. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Sep 14, 2016

    Hopefully Humphries has a better sense of pacing these story arcs going forward. Seeing as how Rage Planet's wrap-up still left a number of lingering subplots this arc could have been two issues shorter and just as effective. Green Lanterns continues to be an up and down reading experience, but it remains solid enough to stick with it for now. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Amy Ziegfeld Sep 14, 2016

    In total, Green Lanterns #6 is a perfectly serviceable end to the series' first arc. It establishes a good dynamic between Simon and Jessica going forward, has some nice character moments, and sets up the next arc well. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Sep 21, 2016

    The opening arc of the series concludes as Jessica Cruz is able to overcome her doubts and anxiety and save her partner from the Red Lanterns. Although Jessica and Simon are successful in destroying the Hell Tower and driving the Red Lanterns from Earth, things are far from settled as Atrocitus and Dex-Starr have left a gift deep within the Earth's core which will one day create all new problems for the Green Lanterns. However, Jessica's effect on Bleez also suggests that something has fundamentally changed for Atrocitus' most valued lieutenant. We'll just have to wait and see what that means for both Corps. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Flickering Myth - Tony Black Oct 3, 2016

    Overall though, Green Lanterns as a series is off to a really healthy start, and looks set to continue its impressive run; taking two characters who could have been difficult & unsympathetic in Simon & Jessica and rounding them off well, while carrying through a plot which at the end backtracks a little but it's a small quibble. One of the stronger Rebirth runs so far – let's hope it continues! Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Dennis Mui Sep 19, 2016

    GREEN LANTERNS #6 does its job by ending the first story arc of the series. Though it may not be the best issue, it sets up the future for the GREEN LANTERNS series. It looks like the rookie duo will now have to deal with the new Guardian that's been staying with Baz's family. All the while the Red Dawn is still a threat. If Cruz and Baz stay on the same page, they should be able to handle these new challenges. Read Full Review

    Blog Of Oa - Myron Rumsey Sep 20, 2016

    Green Lanterns #6 is a somewhat anti-climatic conclusion to the first arc of the series but leaves the reader intrigued by the story potential of what's to come in the weeks ahead.  Jessica and Simon seem to move forward in accepting each other as partners but the whole journey seems to be a paint by numbers affair.  Six out of ten lanterns.

    AiPT! - David Brooke Sep 14, 2016

    Green Lanterns #6 sets up the next big arc, closes things out for our heroes, and opens with well written captions that'll put you right inside their heads. Like much of this series, its strength is when we're right there with the heroes reading their thoughts. Read Full Review

    After the last poor issues, the series gets way better, just not enough to keep my interest in it. The ending is satisfying, the two protagonists finally understand each other, but feels rushed. The upcoming arc, with the mysterious rogue guardian and his phantom ring, isn't appealing. But the real problem of the story is that the main characters really lack interest and charisma, at least not enough to get their own ongoing series in my opinion.

    This was a good arc nice pay off where Jessica is concerned the two GL's each add to the series. I cant complain.

    This issue is perhaps the strongest in the series with Simon and Jessica really taking off as a Superhero Team. The Rage of the last few issues is addressed both in terms of combating it and what it was really for. Plus the two finally meet the little Blue Man and figure out what he's up to. I do question where this story falls in relation to Justice League (especially with what Bleez is up to) as I'm having a difficult time reconciling the two story timelines. But hey. It's comics. And this sort of stuff happens all the time. This is a real solid issue and is keeping me engaged to read the next issue where other Rebirth titles have already lost my interest.

    I think that the Rage arc had gone on long enough. Hopefully this arc will have developed the two new Green Lanterns relationship enough that we don't have to see them fighting anymore every single issue. This book just put a smile on my face as Jessica Cruz is able to overcome a lot of the issues that she has had over this first arc.

    This is probably the best issue of the arc so far, and a nice ending for it (although really it is only just the beginning) and the art was particularly incredible and worthy of note. That said, I think it's safe to say that this arc dragged - and is dragging - on for longer than I would've liked; and thus I don't really think this series is for me. If you are a big Green Lanterns fan though, things are looking up a bit for this series and it is certainly not the worst Rebirth series by any means.

    After the mediocre few issues leading up to it, I'm glad this arc ended on a good note, as I really wanted an excuse to keep going with this series. There was a good balance of story progression and character development, and the arc tied up in a satisfying way (giving fans of the spectrum / cosmic lore a nice treat). I hope this kind of issue can continue!

    Better ending than beginning, with Jessica Cruz being the best part of the entire story arc. Some moment felt overdone, but I do understand the need to plant the seeds for future storylines.

    Jessica just gets over her construct problem without any sort of revelation, no light-bulb moment, just "oh look, now I can do it, I feel much better now." If that's not enough, Atrocitus decides, "Hmm, I have Simon Baz on the ropes, might as well flee without finishing him off"
