    This is one of the rare Rebirth titles that hasn't needed to connect with the rest of the DC Universe. There hasn't been a random Superman, Batman or Justice League appearance, but it doesn't matter. Hal Jordan and the GLC is a title satisfying on every level right now. Read Full Review

    Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #5 drives home that something big is going on in the cosmic DC universe.  Filled with moments of courage, personal strength and will this series is the embodiment of the best that the Green Lantern mythology has to offer.  Robert Venditti and Ethan Van Sciver prove a winning combination once again in another great issue.  Nine out of ten lanterns.

    For the first time, this series truly lives up to the "and the Green Lantern Corps" part of its name. Previous issues have focused mainly on Hal with John, Guy, and the rest of the corps making brief appearances here and there. But now, on the brink of all-out assault against Sinestro, this finally feels like the team book it should be. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd Sep 28, 2016

    Thankfully, Soranik's role in this conflict makes this installment of GLC vs SC feel different and position of the Sinestro Corps as the Universe's law enforcers makes this situation new for the Rebirth era of Green Lantern. Additionally, this issue is very new reader friendly, the status quo may be surprising, but it is all very understandable and exciting. Read Full Review

    The final tumblers are in place to make this story a lock...hopefully. It took a little longer to get to this point than I'd have liked, but now that we're about to see a crazy conflict I'm getting pretty excited. Hal Jordan really acts over the top on his narcissism this issue, and I love to see him cast as a one-dimensional blowhard. If that bothers you, however, be forewarned. This book has heated up and is worth your time and hard-earned money! Or even your stolen money, I don't judge how you get it! Read Full Review

    AiPT! - David Brooke Sep 28, 2016

    Hell yeah; it's big and epic in so many ways, but also feels important. If you're interested in Green Lantern you can't miss what Sciver and Venditti are cooking up. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - John White Sep 28, 2016

    Earth’s Green Lanterns may be divided for the moment, but that is quickly coming to an end. Robert Venditti and artist Ethan Van Sciver deliver another tremendous issue in what has proven to be a thoroughly entertaining first story arc in this much-anticipated series. With only one issue to go in the Sinestro’s Law story arc, you are sure to want to pick this issue up sooner rather than later so a not to miss out on what will be a spectacular conclusion.

    Green Lantern Corps - iggy Sep 29, 2016

    Hal Jordan & The Green Lantern Corps continues to be a a great return to classic Green Lantern, even though the most interesting character so far is Sinestro but he was a former Green Lantern so that's okay. Other than minor complaints this issue was a good as the previous four. Read Full Review

    The GCRN - Dan Clark Oct 7, 2016

    Ethan Van Scivers artwork needs to be pointed out as well. He has a very distinct line that is best displayed within the variety of the Green Lanterns power. His panel work also does a great deal to keep the story moving at a steady pace. An issue like this that is mostly buildup could easily feel bogged down or stale. He gives it a lot of life.

    Black Nerd Problems - L.E.H. Light Sep 30, 2016

    Despite some odd artistic choices, this is still a good book. Well, at least I know it'll still be good as long as I know it's still going somewhere. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Dennis Mui Oct 2, 2016

    Overall, HAL JORDAN AND THE GREEN LANTERN CORPS #5 brings a lot of anticipation for the impending confrontation between the Green Lantern Corps and the Sinestro Corps. The Green Lantern Corps wants Gardner back and they want to stop Sinestro. Hal Jordan also wants to stop Sinestro and his abductions of innocent people (and aliens). The war is coming, and it can't come any sooner! Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Oct 5, 2016

    With Hal fully healed and raring to get back into action, the next issue should finally see a confrontation between former mentor and student as well as a possible reunion between Hal and other Lanterns who are headed after the Sinestro Corps. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Flickering Myth - Tony Black Oct 6, 2016

    Colourfully drawn as ever by Ethan van Sciver, Hal Jordan & the Green Lantern Corps continues the better form from last week, balancing good character moments alongside the epic space opera plotting and a real sense of building toward the climax. It's still been far from the strongest Rebirth run, but it could well end on a high. Read Full Review
