    Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps is playing to the strengths of the mythos. After a bit clich final showdown between Hal and Sinestro, the book is focusing on character with Soranik and re-exploring the rainbow rings as we see more Lantern colors appear this issue. Even Soranik's subplot is engaging enough to move slowly and still be a positive! Read Full Review

    Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #10 is another winner by Venditti.  There are some very welcome cameos that will no doubt make fans from every era very happy paired with well written character beats and just enough plot development to keep the story moving.  Ed Benes' pencils are some of his best work on the lantern books in quite some time.  Nine out of ten lanterns.

    Sadly, I like the parts of the book that don't focus on Hal more than those with him. However, the visuals are outstanding and the ending has me excited to see where this is going. Read Full Review

    What stands out most with the title is how Venditti keeps making the right choices. The Green Lantern universe is wide open and full of potential missteps, but Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps keeps shining thanks to his impeccable direction. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Dec 15, 2016

    This issue is structured a bit weirdly, with a pair of Brainiac-centric scenes book-ending Hal Jordan's struggle to emerge from the afterlife back into the land of the living. Tonally, not a great match, but the Hal scenes work very well on their own. Read Full Review

    The rest of the issue deals with the Green Lantern Corps and the Sinestro Corps bickering while trying (and failing) to break out of Brainiac‘s containment. I'm in favor of DC returning Braniac to the the Silver Age version of the character, and the issue offers an intriguing twist on who the Collector of Worlds is working for. Worth a look.

    HAL JORDAN AND THE GREEN LANTERN CORPS #10 focuses on Hal Jordan and the attempt to bring him back from the Emerald Place rather than the struggles of the trappedGreen Lantern Corps. Jordan has taken center stage and it makes the series even better. His resurrection has been a plot pointI assumed would occur and I'm glad it is being addressed sooner rather than later with this issue. I love how Venditti dedicates most of the issue to the resurrection attempt since it will be an important event. At the end of the issue, we find out whether or not they could bring Jordan back, which is a spoiler that I will not give away. Either way, it will be interesting to see what happens to Jordan and the rest of the Green Lantern Corps in the HAL JORDAN AND THE GREEN LANTERN CORPS series going forward. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Oz Longworth Dec 15, 2016

    This is a good book. No debate there. It's a far better book when it's not following through on its obligatory duty on DC's part to perpetually validate Hal Jordan's existence. Read Full Review

    Scenes that key into the Green Lantern mythos make this a great read for fans new and old. Venditti has a story on his hands here that cuts deep. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Dec 14, 2016

    A lot of this book is taken up by a well-padded scene of Lantern struggle, but it's still a reasonably fun time. The art is fantastic, some classic characters make cameos, and a last page reveal that was given away in the solicit makes this what we in the industry call a good comic book. A buck more, I might think differently about it. But it isn't a buck more, it's three bucks, and I'd say you get a decent return on that investment. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - John White Dec 14, 2016

    Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #10 is a strong issue that will keep your attentions form beginning to end. This issue is as much about what is learned as it is what happens. The revelation of the Grand Collectors identity, as well as the dwindling light of hope, will without a doubt play heavily in the issues to come. In his first opportunity to write the four Earth lanterns, Robert Venditti has proven that he is up to the task of balancing the story between them. Ed Benes art is dynamic and Jason Wrights colors are bright, making this book not only wonderful to read but also beautiful to behold. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Dec 19, 2016

    Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #10 delivered a strong return to action for the title character following his brief death. Robert Venditti was able to deliver some fun fan-service while also establishing the future mission Hal Jordan and company need to accomplish. At the same time, Venditti brought back Ganthet, Sayd and Kyle Rayner back into the fold in ways that hopefully mean that they will take on bigger roles in this series in the near future. With this return out of the way maybe Hal and Kyle can now go on to help make the other part of "Bottled Light" a more interesting tale. Read Full Review

    Green Lantern Corps - iggy Dec 15, 2016

    Hal Jordan & The Green Lantern Corps #10 didn't progress the plot and the art was on a lesser quality before but the moments between Hal and Abin and seeing dead Green Lanterns made my cold heart sing. Overall an enjoyable issue. Read Full Review

    Any interaction between Hal and Kyle will always be a plus in my book, with this reflecting that power that both these heroes have. It also seeks to reintroduce everybody's favorite Guardians, which will lead to a intense arc with a certain Lantern group. Continued quality on this Lantern run.

    This issue was much better than the previous ones, because it has many very enjoyable moments, like when Hal encounters the dead lanterns or when Kyle uses all his energy to get Hal back again. In the first pages, Ed Benes's art is just ok but, later, it becomes beautiful.

    Comic Book Review (7.5/10) “Good” Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #10 “Bottled Light Part 3: By Lantern’s Light” Writer: Robert Venditti Penciller: Ed Benes Plot: Brainiac has the Green Lantern and the Sinestro Corps trapped in a bottle with the Xuderian capital. Meanwhile, Kyle Rayner aka the White Lantern is tasked by Ganthet and Sayd to access Hal Jordan’s ring to bring him back into reality. While inside of the ring, Hal Jordan also comes across fellow Lanterns who gave their lives for the cause… It seems like Robert Venditti is throwing everything but the kitchen sink into this book as “new” returning characters constantly pop up in every book! This book also has a surprise character reveal towards the end of the book. Although the story is moving along narrative wise, the structure has felt the same as the previous two issues also had someone being revealed towards the end. It is cool right now, but if there is another surprise reveal at the end of issue #11, I feel like this structure will get stale and feel repetitive – it feels repetitive even now! I have only seen Benes’ artwork in the Justice League (2006) run by Brad Meltzer. I have always appreciated his artwork and among Ethan Van Sciver and Rafael Sandoval, his detailed artwork seems the fit this book. This issue is probably one of the prettier books this week.

    Obviously Hal isn't going to stay dead when his name is in the title of the comics, so I think I'm safe to at least comment on that without receiving spoiler accusations. Who isn't tired of the dead hero coming back to life? Well, in this case it makes a little more sense given how Venditti previously established this weird phenomena where Hal was becoming a light construct. Logically, I'm expecting that Hal should remain a light construct moving forward, with only the appearance of flesh and blood, but we'll see, I doubt that is the case. The message that Hal receives while in his Lantern afterlife isn't all that subtle, I think we all know where it's headed. The final page reveal has me a little disheartened that this is going to be yet another story revolving around other Lantern wielders. I had my hopes up with Brainiac and Starro that we'd dive into some classic DC villains, only to get hit with the ol' switcheroo. It's a well, executed issue overall though, so I'm of two minds about it. I do still like this book and I'm planning to stick with it so long as Venditti keeps up with his knack for good plotting and structure.
