    Green Lantern #31 is another great addition to an already classic run. The seeds Johns has been planting are starting to come to a head and when you have Ivan Reis depicting all your words, things seems to be in sound hands. Its a true testament to Geoff Johns and Ivan Reis storytelling abilities to take an age old story and give it that extra shine, making coal once again look like diamond. Read Full Review

    Overall, Johns and Reis deliver another great issue of Green Lantern. The only real weak point of this issue is the way that the story seems too fast and too condensed rather than detailed. While it does cover all of the basics and does get every point across, I still wish there was more. Regardless, Im very excited for next issue as it should prove to be one of the most important issues in the retelling of Hals origin. Read Full Review

    It's a great story, well told, and it really helps make Johns' run on the title a fantastic, epic, and (most importantly) cohesive whole. Read Full Review

    The art, while not as detailed as previous issues, is actually better looking. It has a bright freshness that does not become bogged down by the huge cast, the complexity of the settings or the weirdness of the aliens. If DC Comics really needs an artist for their big crossovers, maybe they should take a long look at Reis-- if George Perez isn't available. Read Full Review

    If I had to guess by the way the first unexceptional issue ended with a twist and then led into the inspired second installment, I'd say that next month's issue should offer up some juicy new details of Hal's first year on the corps, particularly as it pertains to Sinestro. Read Full Review
