    AiPT! - David Brooke Sep 21, 2016

    Green Lanterns #7 perfectly embodies the stress and anxiety we all face hanging with family at Thanksgiving dinner. Humphries continues to prove writing characters is his forte. If you like character work you shouldn't miss this series. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Sep 21, 2016

    Green Lanterns continues to surprise me because as we saw in the previous issue, it seems that all the nonsense that we dealt with in the first few issues are over and now it's time to get to who these characters are and what kind of heroes they can be.  Yeah, we don't have a great big threat going after our Lanterns here, but the situation is definitely perilous for Simon and I loved seeing our Lantern heroes getting together and actually being caring partners.  I love the recent writing of this series and the art has just been great.   Read Full Review

    Heroes Direct - Eammon Jacobs Sep 22, 2016

    The best part of the issue is how honest these characters are about their lives and their struggles. We've said it before and we'll say it again. As superheroes go, these latest Lanterns are the most relatable heroes on the market right now. One heavily deals with prejudice and avoiding being labelled as a terrorist because of his ethnicity – and the other can barely stand to be in a social situation after a traumatic experience. These are traits that real world people have to deal with, makingGreen Lanterns #7 one of the most socially relatable characterised comics that DC can boast about. Read Full Review

    Green Lanterns #7 is a nice breatherfrom the Red Dawn arc, we get some really good character moments. Between huge fist-throwing, action arcs such as Red Dawn, I've always appreciated the momentsof relief, especially when used for character development. It's nice to finally see some sort of friendship develop between Simon and Jess. These two characters are really starting to hit their stride and continue to prove their worth as a Green Lantern.

    Comicosity - Amy Ziegfeld Sep 21, 2016

    Green Lanterns #7 is a fun character study and a welcome breather amidst all the galactic action. The pace is brisk and the dialogue snappy. It comes highly recommended for fans of Jessica or Simon. Read Full Review

    Watching superheroes bake cookies may not sound like a, um, recipe for an exciting comic, but what Green Lanterns #7 lacks in action it makes up for in heart and humor. Read Full Review

    Green Lantern Corps - iggy Sep 21, 2016

    Green Lanterns #7 was a step in the right direction for the series, while I still have technical problems with the writing both Jessica and Simon developing chemistry continues to be the highlight of the book, and thankfully the art was solid again. I fully expect Green Lanterns #8 to be released within a matter of hours now. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Tony Farina Sep 21, 2016

    High quality writing, with superb art and ink. What else could a comic reader want? Oh right, explosions. The last panel leads us to believe that those are coming. This is a twice a month comic, so the action will be coming fast and furious. These characters feel like real people and that is a great thing. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Sep 21, 2016

    The issue ends with a mini-cliffhanger suggesting the two newest Lanterns are about to tangle with yet another longtime threat in the DCU. That could prove pretty fun. Green Lanterns is clearly going to be a title requiring patience. So far that approach has worked pretty well and there's little reason it'll stop anytime soon. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Sep 22, 2016

    The issue is the quiet before the storm as a new baddie for Simon and Jessica to deal with is right around the corner. I just worry that Humphries has given is a bit too much foreshadowing and what I expect to happen will. The comic feels like the part of the story where the partner cops share something and one of them then gets shot and killed. Hopefully, I'm wrong and it's not that predictable, but we'll see.

    Flickering Myth - Tony Black Oct 4, 2016

    A solid issue of Green Lanterns which isn't afraid to pause for breath and zero in on character after the towering narrative of ‘Rage Planet', and further develops Simon Baz in particular in impressive degrees. Looks like we won't have to wait too long, however, before the Lanterns are thrown back in the fray. Read Full Review

    Nerdophiles - Jackson Adams Sep 29, 2016

    It's a memorable issue, one that satisfies those looking for a little less action than the Green Lantern universe has been filled with as-of-late, but in some ways, it's a swing too far from what many readers are going to want out of these characters. Read Full Review

    Blog Of Oa - Myron Rumsey Sep 21, 2016

    While Green Lanterns #7 showcases the humanity of the titular characters it does so at the expense of everything else that makes up a good comic.  Combined with some questionable choices about what the lead characters do with their newfound knowledge of the Phantom Ring and clunky attempts at humor the bad outweighs the good in my opinion.  Five out of ten lanterns.

    Feels like a great point for anyone to jump into the series. This was an excellent issue, both in writing and art. Great pacing and excellent layouts. No major conflicts happen, but we get a ton of good, fun character development. Green lanterns using their power rings for baking? I would've been skeptical, but it was great!

    The Villain Sep 21, 2016

    A very well done book that finally dumps all the struggles that the two Green Lanterns have had working together. Its nice to finally see a true friendship developing between Simon and Jessica. This issue doesn't have any villains or huge conflict it is just a fun family dinner issue that provides a lot more into Simon's character.

    The partnership dynamic is slowly starting to form between the two characters, but some moments feel like they are taking two steps back. There was an odd scene where Jessica is about to run away, but Simon then stops her, then Simon runs away, with Jessica stopping him. My biggest problem with the series is I feel like the character development is not split as evenly as it should be. With some of the characters the growth feels stunted, while the others are well fleshed out.

    The characters feel more authentic in this issues than they have in any of the previous issues. The dialogue and art just work this time. Despite the lack of a villain, this is one of the best issue in the series yet.
