    Comics Bulletin - Kevin Powers Jan 1, 2008

    This book is by far DCs best and with names like McKone, Johns, Reis and Van Sciver, this book continues to deliver. Theres so much happening in the world of Green Lantern, so much connection to the long history of the mythos and also the ability to move forward with new and creative ideas. I am happy and proud to call myself a Green Lantern fan and a die hard fan of Hal Jordan. Read Full Review

    With one post-Sinestro Corp War issue in the can, I think it's safe to say that Geoff Johns has turned Green Lantern into the best DC Universe book on the stands. I can't wait for more. Read Full Review

    Anyone following the current Green Lantern storyline will want to continue picking this title up. For those unaware of the current state of affairs in Green Lantern, hit up Wikipedia, and then decide for yourself. Its a solid start to what will be one of the defining comic events of the near future. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Rokk Krinn Jan 4, 2008

    Green Lantern #26 was another good read. This issue certainly lets up on the accelerator compared to the previous issues. But, that is to be expected as Johns recalibrates everything and gets the reader set for the next story arc. Green Lantern is an excellent title that is still the best thing that DC has going at the moment. Read Full Review

    The Comic Addiction - Corwin C. Crowl Dec 1, 2007

    I have to admit Geoff Johns has made this issue very accessible for new readers. Each character shines under his pen with very distinctive personalities and motivations. You get a very real feel of all the characters quickly and almost immediately feel a longing for more. Laira's rage caused her to strike down a Sinestro Corps member who willingly surrendered. The new law of lethal force against the Sinestro Corps seems to be leading to trouble. It will be interesting to see how this will affect Laira's standing in the Corps, as I am sure the Guardians will not be pleased. Mike McKone’s art is also a welcoming sight. I lost track of him after he left Marvel’s Exiles but he brings a very solid style to the book. While not as detailed as Reis, McKone is an experienced penciler whose consecutive art tells a concise story that is easy and fun to follow. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Dec 28, 2007

    Still a solid read, but nothing nearly as ground breaking or adrenaline pumping as previous issues. Felt like a "Taking a break, see ya next month!" type of issue. Read Full Review
