The bizarre introduction of the Alpha Lanterns concludes as the trial of a Lost Lantern ends! But what does the induction of the Alpha Lanterns mean to the future of the Corps? Plus, the debut of a new Lantern Corps!

    This is an amazing issue. Johns teases things to come down the road and in his next arc Secret Origins. He continues to prove that this is DCs best book because it stays contained within itself and every character is interesting and plays a role in some aspects of whats happening. Definitely the best issue since the end of The Sinestro Corps War and most certainly my Pick of the Week. Read Full Review

    One final note: Mike McKone's a fine artist and all, but he's no Ivan Reis or Ethan Van Sciver when it comes to drawing Green Lantern. I mean, few artists are, which is why any issue without one of the two involved is bound to dissapoint when it comes to the art. And this issue, as visually impressive as it is, certainly dissapoints. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Rokk Krinn Mar 10, 2008

    Green Lantern #28 was another excellent read. Johns simply has the Midas touch on this title. It is amazing how hot he has been on Green Lantern. This title is certainly DC's strongest read as it serves up such a quality effort each and every month. I highly recommend giving Green Lantern a chance. It doesn't matter if you have ever been interested in Hal Jordan or not. This title is so much bigger than just his character. Johns is giving us a cosmic science fiction tale on such a grand scale that will appeal to a wide range of comic book readers. Read Full Review

    The Comic Addiction - Corwin C. Crowl Mar 5, 2008

    What I really like about this issue is that Geoff Johns has set things up with a lot of gray areas. The Guardians in their infinite wisdom still have problems seeing obvious things that are right in front of them. I am sure there is more to the Alpha Lanterns than they have revealed but more importantly what if Sinestro is right? What if the Guardians have spent all this time trying to prevent the Blackest Night prophecy from coming true when they should be preparing for it? Sinestro himself has some redeeming qualities even though he has committed countless acts of mayhem and murder. It goes back to that gray area I was talking about. I truly enjoy how he and Hal have this mutual respect even though they have been enemies on the battlefield numerous times. Okay, I know I have rambled on about that in the last couple reviews so let us move on. The scarred Guardian returns to the council as a flash of red light gains their attention. She mentions the name of Agent Orange while the Contr Read Full Review

    Still nothing I'd write home about. Well, technically I am writing about it, but the point stands. There's some neat things here, but nothing really holding it all together or forming a cohesive plot or story. Read Full Review
