    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Nov 9, 2016

    The story is great, but Ethan Van Sciver's art puts it over the top. Van Sciver packs so much detail into each frame that it's like watching a movie. When Van Sciver joins Venditti, this is a title very hard not to place atop DC's Rebirth line. This was another terrific installment in a series that hasn't had a letdown. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Anthony Wendel Nov 9, 2016

    This is just what the doctor ordered. A great issue about two factions coming together to stop a powerful force they wouldnt be able to take down alone. A great analogy for two sides which may not see eye to eye but can become united under the idea of moving forward and working together for a better tomorrow. A lot of people could learn a lesson from the message in this issue and it may help to give everyone the ray of hope which is desperately needed right now. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Shane Tydeman Nov 16, 2016

    This would not be the book to read from issue number 8, it is still early days and you can still pick up issues 1 to 7 from your local comic store or on Comixology. This book bleeds epic awesomeness! For fans of Lantern books you will not be disappointed and do ya'self and check it out! Read Full Review

    Blog Of Oa - Myron Rumsey Nov 9, 2016

    Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #8 wastes no time wrapping up the events of "Sinestro's Law" and jumping headlong into "Bottled Light".  For what is the initial installment of a new arc the story moves fast and keeps our heroes off balance by putting them in a high stakes battle.  Ethan Van Sciver takes a great issue and takes it up a notch with some inspired visuals and the kind of art that Green Lantern fans have come to expect from one of DC's best art teams.  Nine out of ten lanterns.

    GWW - Spfcderon Nov 9, 2016

    Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #8 features some out of this world art. The story looks like the beginning of an epic story arc, but the missing Hal Jordan aspect needs to be solved sooner rather than later. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Nov 14, 2016

    Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #8 is a strong start to the second arc in the series. Without Hal Jordan or Sinestro around we were able to shine the spotlight on other characters that deserve just as much as those two. The surprising ending that revealed Brainiac as the main villain for this new arc brings a lot of fresh new opportunities for Robert Venditti to take. Adding in Ethan Van Sciver phenomenal artwork makes this an even bigger must-read for Green Lantern fans. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Dennis Mui Nov 10, 2016

    HAL JORDAN AND THE GREEN LANTERN CORPS #8 starts off the new story arc on the right foot. Going forward, it will be interesting to see whether or not the remaining Sinestro Corps members will be able to work alongside the Green Lanterns, and if the Green Lanterns will trust them. It'll also be interesting to find out if Hal Jordan is still alive (I assume so, since characters never really seem to die forever). Basically, there is so much going on in this new story arc, and I cannot wait for the next issue to get some answers! Read Full Review

    Green Lantern Corps - iggy Nov 9, 2016

    While this issue maintained the excellent consistency of the series, it doesn't do enough to make it exemplary from the rest.It does have me invested into where Venditti intends to take this uneasy alliance, especially when it looks like Brainiac will be involved somehow. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd Nov 10, 2016

    There's no rest for the weary as the GLC will next face off against Brainiac. Moving Hal's fate to a sub-plot is a clever move as the focus of the book shifts to John and the Corps and their confrontation with Brainiac. Lastly, this issue is another easy access book for a new reader. Read Full Review

    Okay, fine. It could have been a better looking book in certain areas, but it gets a lot of credit for its ambition and staying as fun as possible. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - David Brooke Nov 9, 2016

    A slow start doesn't mire the overall experience too much, as new questions arise as to what happened to Hal, what the Green Lanterns do next, and whether or not the Yellow and Green Lanterns can coexist. This issue sets up the next arc well, quickly pivoting in interesting ways. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Nov 9, 2016

    It's the beginning of a new story arc, and it's already starting to smell a little ripe. Maybe I'm a little gun-shy after the previous yarn, and some fantastic art does make this potential pill easier to swallow. If you didn't read the prior seven issues, you're in luck because there's a pretty extensive recap in this one. Save yourself the time and the twenty-one bucks. Read Full Review
