    At this point, I'd put Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps against any Rebirth title. It's that good and undoubtedly one of my easiest recommendations all month. Read Full Review

    SciFiPulse - Patrick Hayes Jul 2, 2017

    This series is a powerhouse! The conflicts come from within and outside the teams, with the Kyle-Soranik saga as compelling as the murder mystery. The visuals are intense, loaded with details in both art and colors. Even the letters are visually pleasing. Everything about this title is working at the highest possible level. Absolutely recommended. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Jul 2, 2017

    Hal Jordan And The Green Lantern Corps #23 is another strong continuation in the saga of Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps. This is one of DCs best titles by far, and it is well worth your time. Read Full Review

    GWW - Deron Generally Jun 28, 2017

    This is the start of both a really great murder mystery, tragic love story and political thriller all rolled into one. The plot is paced with great tension and the art work is dynamic but also well done in its subtle moments. Read Full Review

    Blog Of Oa - Myron Rumsey Jun 28, 2017

    Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #23 is another chapter in one of DC Comics' top series. While the plot is somewhat predictable the creative team delivers an issue which packs an emotional punch and sets the stage for the greatest challenge to the alliance between the Green Lantern Corps and the Sinestro Corps. Nine out of ten lanterns. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Jul 1, 2017

    Robert Venditti and Ethan Van Sciver delivered an expertly told story that continued to develop the Green Lantern and Sinestro Corps alliance. The revelations several characters have in Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #23 will be major driving forces for the series moving forward and it'll be excited to see how they all play out.

    Again the art is impeccable, as the team makes visuals for what a Green Lantern Corps comic should be. Read Full Review

    Impulse Gamer - Chris O'Connor Jul 6, 2017

    At the end of the this story the working relationship between the Green Lantern's and the Sinestro Corp could still go either way" but we know a lot more at the end and that creates more questions... nail biting may be mandatory. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Jun 28, 2017

    When John Stewart finds out about the secret Bolphunga's threatening to reveal...well, he looks a little miffed. Certainly not stunned to his core. This issue also contains some friendship action between Guy Gardner and Arkillo, and it is terrific. With Ethan Van Sciver drawing, you'll say, "Yep. Looks like a Green Lantern comic for sure."

    The Brazen Bull - Charlie Chipman Jun 28, 2017

    Another strong issue for the Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps series. Robert Venditti may be delaying the inevitable, but he's keeping each issue feeling fresh. Read Full Review

    Green Lantern Corps - iggy Jun 28, 2017

    Hal Jordan & The Green Lantern Corps #23 definitely is building up the tension, and while I'm not a fan of the Kyle/Natu love reunion I will admit that the involvement of their future child does bring an interesting twist to their potential relationship and after seeing Natu's reaction that Kyle was hiding this fact from her only spells for some interesting drama in the next issue. Finally even though it was a small roll in the grander scheme within the context of the issue I loved seeing John being put into this situation. You can tell by his dialog and how Van Sciver draws his body that Bolphunga's bluff ways heavy upon him as a leader. Really great issue overall. Read Full Review

    Nerd Church Radio - Ariel DuPey Jun 28, 2017

    Well, I didn't expect that ending. I loved the whole Murder on the Orient Express vibe that was going on through this book. It felt new and fresh compared to the normal flow of how Robert usually writes. The action is more at at a minimum, but the plot and drama has definitely thickened. One can only guess what on Earth is next for the Corps. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Oz Longworth Jun 29, 2017

    Vennditti deserves way more credit than he's getting for holding the fort in the post-Johns era. Also, this is best looking book we've seen in the past few weeks. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Jul 12, 2017

    The other subplot involves Soranik Natu investigating Sarko and discovering what is causing Kyle Rayner‘s odd behavior and insistence she give up her yellow ring in favor of the green. Given the fact that her discover wipes the man's existence from this timeline, however, suggests the timeline has already been changed. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Hussein Wasiti Jun 28, 2017

    Venditti chooses to frame this murder mystery in the mindset of John and his desperation to keep the two Lantern Corps united. Despite this, the story was still on the predictable side and I wish it could have been more dynamic. Van Sciver's art is still epic, though. Read Full Review

    Robert Venditti & Ethan Van Sciver have done an amazing job on this issue. The pacing was a bit reminiscent of a tv procedurally, but that works here. Yes, it made the pacing a bit slow in some parts, but that's the only thing I could complain about. Ethan's art is really wonderful & it's nice to see an artist of his ability on this book. When a comic book leaves you wanting to read the next issue "right now", you know you're reading something good. A lesson that no one at Marvel Comics seems to know or care about.

    I get there's gonna be tension between the Green and Yellow (what else is new?) even though they're teammates. However, I'm more intrigued with how Soranik is gonna react next issue knowing that she's gonna shag Rayner and then have the worst son ever.

    Even if I love Hal Jordan more than any other super-hero, Guy Gardner has become my favorite character of the title. His characterization is awesome: he's both fun and super bad-ass. For me, his team-up with Arkillo is an excellent idea and it's really well-written. The story is becoming quite intriguing and I'm really looking forward to the next issues!

    We finally begin to see the seams start fall apart within this uneasy alliance between the GL and SC, but I hope that this is not the theme for the entire Venditti run. I feel like most of his arcs have had to do with this topic, which has been handled well by him, but I want something different now.
