    AiPT! - David Brooke Nov 23, 2016

    If you like Green Lantern, or used to read the series at all, you must buy this book. Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps is a showstopper of a series that shouldn't be missed. There's plenty of action, mystery, and science fiction goodness to make this worthy of anyone's pull list. Read Full Review

    Blog Of Oa - Myron Rumsey Nov 23, 2016

    Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #9 is another excellent chapter in one of DC's best series post-Rebirth.  Robert Venditti's script has a lot of action and great character moments which more than make up for the slight advancement of the overall plot, and Rafa Sandoval's art is just the icing on the cake.  Nine out of ten lanterns, er F-Sharp Bells!

    Robert Venditti creates a nice sense of scale as the resurgent Green Lanterns find themselves simultaneously liberating a planet and battling Brainiac. He's ably assisted by Rafa Sandoval, who delivers a nonstop dose of sweeping battles and powerful, dynamic figures. Read Full Review

    Venditti does a great job of shifting the focus over to the rest of the Corps in this story arc, raising the stakes even higher just like he did in the issue before. Brilliant. Read Full Review

    HAL JORDAN AND THE GREEN LANTERN CORPS #9 combines good storytelling by Venditti with strategic art from Tarragona and Sandoval. Though the Green Lantern Corps part of the story may not be for every reader, the Hal Jordan storyline is sure to excite most with the return of Ganthet and Sayd. There are also some old friends who reappear in this issue and they should play a large part in HAL JORDAN AND THE GREEN LANTERN CORPS #10. I won't spoil who they are here, so you'll have to pick this issue up and find out for yourself! Read Full Review

    Another fine issue as this space opera continues to expand and bring more surprises. It seemed like the journey was over last issue, but it is clear there isn't a clear ending in mind as new possibilities continue to pop up, much to my surprise and pleasure. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Nov 29, 2016

    As expected, the death of Hal Jordan has been greatly exaggerated. Although I'm not excited to see the introduction of Kyle Rayner into the story, I'm up for anything to get Hal back into action. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Nov 23, 2016

    A fairly mediocre issue that moves some puzzle pieces incrementally closer to completing a full picture. But as it is, we're still getting a fractured story where protagonists aren't even aware of one another's existences--protagonists who are named in the title of the series, mind you. The art is great, and Rot Lop Fan is in this issue, so that's something to celebrate. But the story is just plodding along, and I fear we may be staring down the barrel of another bloated seven-issue story arc. I hope I am wrong! Read Full Review

    Despite the fact that this issue was the second part of an arc, despite the fact this issue continued the breakneck pace it definitely felt most like a breather issue. Sandoval's art was still good, not as great as previous issue but still very consistent and beautiful to look at. Overall still a fun part to a fun series. Read Full Review

    This was my favorite issue of this comic yet, with the ending being a great start to what will be a very eventful few issues. This Green Lantern team has been destroying my expectations in a very positive way.

    Comic Book Review (8.5/10) "Great," Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #9 "Bottled Light Part 2: Braniac," Writer: Robert Venditti, Penciller: Rafa Sandoval, Plot: Brainiac has used Starro to lure the remaining Green Lantern and Sinestro Corps into a trap and now both corps are trapped in a miniaturized glass prison. Meanwhile, Ganthet and Sayd are trying to figure out how a power ring was constructed purely out of will and where Hal Jordan could be. Can the Green Lantern Corps rescue spore infected Xudarians and escape Brainiac's glass prison? There is a really cool reveal at the end of the issue, and it seems most of the Green Lanterns of Sector 2814 unite at this point of this comic. So far I am digging how the Green Lanterns are figuring out their situation via reasonable deduction and the story is moving along in a natural manner. Nothing in this issue feels forced (except maybe for the last page), and seeing the bonds among John Stewart, Soranik, and Guy Gardner develop is great and fun. Sandoval knocks it out of the park again in this issue and the artwork looks gorgeous. Once again he shows his knack for understanding anatomy and draws perfect figures in action. During Rebirth, I would say Sandoval is one of the most well learned artists in DC Comics and it is an absolute joy to see his work in this comic series.

    Featuring the appearance of a couple old friends, this is good Green Lantern with high stakes.
