    Issue 12 capped off a tremendous first 12 issues of this run and with this creative team firmly in place, there's no reason to suspect it won't remain one of DC's brightest lights. Read Full Review

    SciFiPulse - Patrick Hayes Jan 14, 2017

    Larfleeze is successfully reintegrated into the DC Universe as a monstrous threat, rather than the cartoon character he's become. Great action, killer art, and a major turning point for an iconic villain. Give me more DC! I want it! I want IT! I WANT IT! Read Full Review

    Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps continues to surprise and in this case inspire. If the Sinestro Corps can work along side the GLC, shouldn't nearly anything be possible? A little understanding, some common goals etc"? This is an even bigger status quo change than if Hal had stayed dead. The future is very bright for this title. Read Full Review

    Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps continues to be the strongest entry in DC's cosmic catalog, fueled by rock solid writing by Robert Venditti and amazing visuals by Ethan Van Sciver and Rafa Sandoval.  Issue twelve is another great chapter in a series which should keep any Green Lantern fan's ring fully charged.  Nine out of ten lanterns.

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Jan 15, 2017

    Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #12 is an example of exactly how you end one story while building a strong foundation for future storylines to branch out of. Robert Venditti and Ethan Van Sciver combined their talents to continuously throw us one big moment after another. Every character involved in "Bottled Light" got some moment to shine, whether through a show of power or personal development. Now that the conflict with Larfleeze is over and there is an alliance between the Green Lantern and Sinestro Corps what happens next is incredibly exciting. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Dennis Mui Jan 12, 2017

    HAL JORDAN AND THE GREEN LANTERN CORPS #12 is a strong conclusion to the "Bottled Light" story arc. Witnessing Larfleeze unleash his constructs upon the Green Lantern Corps and the Sinestro Corps for a chaotic battle is nothing short of fun. Also, the long-awaited reunion between Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps is so very satisfying. Now that they are all together, it will be interesting to see where Venditti take the group from here. The Green Lanterns' leader Hal Jordan is back, but Stewart has been holding the team together for a while now. Will there be some internal group conflict? We'll have to wait until HAL JORDAN AND THE GREEN LANTERN CORPS #13 to find out! Read Full Review

    Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #12 is a satisfying, but short conclusion to the story-line and art that always impresses. Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps continues to show an effective and dynamic team. Read Full Review

    Green Lantern Corps - iggy Jan 11, 2017

    It's a new year but Hal Jordan & The Green Lantern Corps continues to be revel in what makes Green Lantern distinct and fun for new and old fans alike. The inclusion of the Sinestro Corps is not needed spice since Venditti and the talented pool of artists make the Green Lanterns cool it is an interesting dynamic when putting together old rivals into a partnership. Heck it works out in pro wrestling so why not in comics. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Jan 16, 2017

    Guy isn't the only one surprised by events as both Corps ability to work together seems to suggest a brave new world for the Corps working together. It's an unexpected move for DC to make, having the two warring factions come together, but it certainly helps get Green Lantern comics back to their original premise of space cops patrolling the universe and protecting worlds from all kind of threats (rather than getting mired in a never-ending ring-slinging war). I'll be very curious to see where things go from here. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - David Brooke Jan 11, 2017

    A big, action-packed issue is delievered as DC Comics continues to prove this is the blockbuster series of DC Rebirth. It does cheapen the experience a bit as there's a lack of character work and a heavy-handed emotional moment later in the issue doesn't quite cut it. Still, the new direction for Green and Yellow Lanterns alike is compelling. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Jan 11, 2017

    A contrived ending and some classic hard light construct smashy smashy results in a fairly underwhelming comic book, save for a new minion for Larfleeze and a change in the status of Green Lantern/Sinestro Corps relations. It's a lot more exciting than C-Span, I promise. And with Van Sciver at the pencil it looks a lot better than that, too. Read Full Review
