    SciFiPulse - Patrick Hayes May 31, 2017

    What looks to be a lantern slugfest spins into a massive game changer for one character. This is a "Can't Miss" issue for Lantern fans. A smart story whose repercussions will last for a long time, plus the visuals are outstanding. Read Full Review

    One of the best Green Lantern stories in recent history. Definitely one for the record books. Read Full Review

    A fantastic conclusion to the Prism of Time arc. Even though the battle itself was pretty predictable and played out like most fights; the surprise twist was really unexpected. Venditti is able have all the big names in one story, and still give every character the space they need. A spectacle of heroism and divergence will have you completely engaged the whole way through.

    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd May 24, 2017

    Like all good serial fiction, this issue provides an ending and a starting point. Kyle's discovery will certainly prove to be the basis for another exciting story line in the coming months. The final chapter of this arc allowed each Lantern to exhibit their unique approaches and provided Hal with some insight on those approaches. Most importantly, these elements allow for character driven stories that manage to include epic battles with the highest stakes. Read Full Review

    Blog Of Oa - Myron Rumsey May 25, 2017

    Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #21 ends the "Prism of Time" on a strong emotional note, but the conclusion feels rushed and slightly disappointing considering all the great build up that Robert Venditti put into the threat of Sarko up to this point.  While the ending of the conflict is a bit of a let down there's plenty of great character moments and foreshadowing that makes this book a fun if predictable read.  Eight out of ten lanterns.

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway May 24, 2017

    The conclusion to this arc is satisfying and predictable, like a warm glass of milk. There are worse things for a periodical to be than dependable, and I like how this series has been going lately. This book has been doing a good job of scratching my Green Lantern itch. Though the doctor did say to come back if it persisted for longer than a week. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Oz Longworth May 25, 2017

    Narrative-wise, this is a perfectly good (maybe a little rushed) tale here. The perpetually juggled artwork is the thing holding this book back from true greatness, but Venditti's ambitious storytelling still mostly justifies the four bucks. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen May 25, 2017

    The series' current story arc reaches an uneven conclusion here. The problem is mostly one of pacing. After so much build-up, it's bizarre to see the Sarko threat so quickly and easily dealt with. Because of that, there's a general lack of urgency and dramatic tension in this issue. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles May 24, 2017

    In spite of the art problems, Venditti nicely advances the Green Lantern/Sinestro Corps alliance. The teams are starting to lose the initial apprehension of working together, but a shocking reveal could drive a wedge in the heart of this tenuous pairing. I'm anticipating that to play a big part in future issues. This wasn't the typical home run I've come to expect from the title, but it was enjoyable enough to warrant checking out. Read Full Review

    The conclusion to this story was well done, but felt forced in places. The artwork was really well done and the action scenes were thrilling to look at. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - husseinwasiti May 24, 2017

    While this issue doesn't exactly fizzle out, it deflates the story being told with how quickly and easily the threat was dispatched, making the past few issues almost seem like filler. Marion's art was great though, and I'd like to see him on the book more. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez May 27, 2017

    Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #21 delivered an impactful ending that sets the stage for some intriguing sub-plots to follow moving forward. Even with Sarko not being the strongest of villains, Robert Venditti's clear understanding of the Green Lantern Universe continues to be the strength of this series and it showed throughout this issue.

    If you collected the previous six comics, you're going to want to pick this up; but if you just wanted see a satisfying conclusion than you will be sorely disappointed. I'll let a few months go by before checking in on Hal again. Read Full Review

    Green Lantern Corps - iggy May 24, 2017

    Sadly I wanted to like this arc, given that this was the first arc that actually had members of the Sinestro Corps and Green Lantern Corps working together and there wasn't much of that. Plus the threat of Sarko all felt like it was in a vaccum, there was no consequences to anybody. Yes Kyle saw his son from the future died, but there was not enough emphasis on the connection to make this arc seem important. Now don't get me wrong the arc and this issue itself was still fun, but there was so much more potential. Read Full Review
