    Finally, I think I'm almost about ready to declare this series the best looking superhero book on the stands. Ivan Reis has made tremendous leaps and bounds with each issue on this title, and dare I say that he just might have leapt beyond the abilities of all but the best artists in the industry. Reis here shows a completely different side to the bombastic, action-packed work he did on the Sinestro Corp War, demonstrating an ability to nail each character's emotions that's on par with his ability to deliver stunning visuals. His work here is absolutely breath taking, and just another reason why any fan of the genre should be reading this book. Read Full Review

    KP: Theres really no other way to classify this issue than as another strong installment in Geoff Johns epic. Hes doing a fair share of ret-conning and overall, it works very well. However, like I said, my only real problem with this issue and Secret Origins is the fact that key character elements get glazed over and the story is heavily geared to Blackest Night. Now, dont get me wrong, Im very excited about Blackest Night but Ive also been waiting for the definitive version of Hals origin for a long time. But, I do understand many of those story elements and character points have to be put on the back burner for the next chapter. So, I guess in conclusion I dont have any other complaints because I absolutely love this book and this issue. Read Full Review

    "Green Lantern" is the kind of superhero comic you can count on, month in and month out. It's what an ongoing DC comic should be, and I look forward to it each month. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Jun 25, 2008

    Best of the Secret Origin issues so far, but only because of Sinestro. Still nothing new offered outside the two pages of Red Lantern stuff, which wasn't much. They still haven't provided enough new material to cover a single issue, which annoys me to no end. Should have just released this as a Year One special and fleshed out or progressed the actual story in the main book. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Joshua Hill Jun 28, 2008

    I'll say again, the art was great, and possibly worth getting if you just want to look at pretty pictures. Add to that the ret-conning, which speaks to the greater Green Lantern war that is brewing, and this is a passable issue. But it confused me, and I don't like to be confused. I don't get confused a lot when reading Green Lantern issues, and that baffled me, leaving me confused and baffled. I give Green Lantern #32 3 out of 5 Stars, mainly for the art. Add it to your collection if you are collecting them, but if you aren't, just wait for the TPB and skim through this issue when you get to it. Read Full Review
