    Robert Venditti has many balls in the air, but is giving every story thread the attention it needs. Great read. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Apr 12, 2017

    One of my favorite aspects of the title is how Venditti writes in a classic comic book style setting up subplots that will become pivotal story arcs down the road. Saint Walker goes off on a new quest while a new menace is discovered and the Lanterns get a surprise guest with news of their fate. There's always a sense of the next great adventure here and this issue definitely opens up a nice array of new possibilities. Read Full Review

    The story continues to move and evolve in a way that keeps it both entertaining and tense. The artwork is well done and the ending panels keep me interested in the next part of the story Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Apr 12, 2017

    There's tension between the Sinestro and Green Lantern Corps, but they seem to be getting along okay in this issue of mostly characterization and banter. The pacing and plotting was great, and I do enjoy smiling while I read my comics. I'm hoping more Green/Yellow partnerships will yield more yuks and camaraderie in the future. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd Apr 12, 2017

    Something big is on the horizon, and this issue gives just a teaser. It does, however, make effective use of Guy Gardner and Arkillo's two-issue story line. There's a lot going on in this title and it all works well together, this issue exemplifies this. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Oz Longworth Apr 14, 2017

    Not a strong as the past few issues, but even at half speed, this is still an immensely fun book to read. Also, the art puts it over the hump for a decent grade this week. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Jon Arvedon Apr 14, 2017

    In any case, the story still manages to satisfy, particularly with the return of an unexpected character in the closing pages of the book, which will presumably follow suit with issue #17 in bringing Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps out from its largely self-contained bubble and into the greater depths of the post-Rebirth DCU.

    Blog Of Oa - Myron Rumsey Apr 17, 2017

    Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #18 hints that there are some major events looming over the horizon while setting readers up for the next chapter of Robert Venditti's space opera.  There are plenty of things in motion but it never feels overwhelming thanks to Venditti's ability to juggle all the moving pieces.  Eight out of ten lanterns.

    Nerd Church Radio - Ariel DuPey Apr 12, 2017

    The Sinestro Corps and Green Lanterns have a very long history dating back to the very beginning, and this mix up in alliances is fresh and exciting. Venditti is doing a fantastic job in writing a riveting plot line that has different stories smoothly entangling with one another. Now that we have another threat in the midst how will this new union handle the situation? Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Charlie Chipman Apr 12, 2017

    With Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #18 , the pace is beginning to pick up, but Venditti is still setting the stage, and this, the first chapter of a new arc isn't too entertaining, but it still worth reading. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - husseinwasiti Apr 12, 2017

    While the ending was very interesting, the slow progression of the series has really gotten to me. Everything that happened in the first half of this issue, all of the conflict between the Green and Yellow Lanterns, should have been resolved by now. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Amy Ziegfeld Apr 12, 2017

    This issue is a promising start for the next story arc, even if it's not necessarily a great issue on its own. It will probably be worth reading eventually, but for now it's all promise and no payoff. Read Full Review

    IGN - Blair Marnell Apr 13, 2017

    It's not a bad comic by any standard, but the inter-Corps brawl on Mogo is pretty pointless. Read Full Review

    Green Lantern Corps - iggy Apr 12, 2017

    Hal Jordan & The Green Lantern Corps #18 does a great job of showing that the current green/yellow partnership will still play a factor going forward, but most of this issue was setup for whatever this new threat happens to be. It had the right amount of entertaining moments to keep me invested for the rest of this arc. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Apr 17, 2017

    The final page of the comic foreshadows just how dire a threat the Corps is facing as Rip Hunter makes his first appearance since Rebirth (and apparently isn't known by any of the Green Lanterns in the reconstructed DCU). For fans. Read Full Review
