    Fantastic ending to an incredible storyline that was phoenominal from start to finish. Read Full Review

    So to all the creators of Sinestro Corps, thank you. Thank you for a brilliant story. Thank you for turning a book I hate into one I love. And thank you, thank you for rekindling my love of comics which had been slowly dying over the last few months. Read Full Review

    When the Sinestro Corps Special hit shelves back in June, I participated in that Sunday Slugfest and called that issue my Pick of the Year. As a die-hard Hal Jordan and Green Lantern fan, I find it appropriate now that the year is nearly at a close and the slugfest of the final issue of a saga that began with the Sinestro Corps Special is taking place. A true testament to this issue and this series is that this issue, Green Lantern #25, the final issue of The Sinestro Corps War, has surpassed the opening issue of said saga. This issue is my Pick of the Year. It redefines the way I look at big events, and it finally gives a fitting, worthy and future implicating end to a big event in a time where big events have become the norm. Read Full Review

    Johns and co. have created one of the best epics in comics, and this issue is the perfect conclusion to it. Brilliant art, edge of your seat action, and a great cast make Green Lantern the best thing coming out of DC. I cannot wait to see where Johns takes things next. Read Full Review

    IGN - Bryan Dec 12, 2007

    Green Lantern #25, and really the entire "Sinestro Corps War," is about as much bang for your buck as you're probable to find in the market today. The final issue of the crossover succeeds in eclipsing everything that's come before, both in scale and in quality, and easily stakes its claim as the best work to come out of DC all year -- probably all decade. Books like GL #25 are rare gems. Read Full Review

    IGN - Dan Phillips Dec 12, 2007

    Much has been said up until this point, both in interviews and in previous installments of this storyline, about the upcoming "Blackest Night" storyline, the third part of Johns, Van Sciver, and Reis's epic Green Lantern trilogy. This final issue lays out the "Blackest Night" event in two segments drawn expertly by Van Sciver, the first of which details the prophecy in a rather haunting fashion, and the second of which shows the events of the Sinestro Corp War ushering in this dreaded new conflict. Without revealing any spoilers, let me just say that Johns and company look like they have an even more impressive story arc up their sleeves for Summer 2009, which is saying quite a lot really when you consider how damn near perfect the "Sinestro Corp War" truly was.

    Comic Book Revolution - Rokk Krinn Dec 14, 2007

    Green Lantern #25 was an excellent read and certainly a wonderfully satisfying conclusion to the Sinestro War story arc. Johns manages to do the impossible and reveal that the Sinestro War story arc was nothing more than a warm up for much larger events to come in the next couple of years. Read Full Review

    Look, regardless of Ganthets and Sayds hugging heroics, The Blackest Night will come, and with baited breath we will watch the colors collide. Most likely, an eighth color will work its way into the mix with the Anti-Monitor representing black. Does that mean all the other colors have to meld into the color white to fight the ever-looming darkness of black? Spare me the gut-wrenching clichs and just get back to single colored space tales. Im glad Sinestro Corps War is over. Maybe we can get back to decent stories about everyones favorite space cops. Read Full Review
