    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Jul 30, 2008

    Finally, a story that lives up to the "secret" in the Secret Origin title of this arc. I was beginning to think there was no point to this retelling. Next issue promises to be a similarly enjoyable experience. Shame the first four parts couldn't be like this. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Kevin Powers Aug 1, 2008

    This is definitely the strongest issue of "Secret Origin" to date. It is also an absolute can't miss for the continued evolution of the "Blackest Night" storyline as Johns takes the focus off of Hal a little bit and shifts it towards Sinesto and Abin Sur, furthering the "Blackest Night" epic. This is without a doubt the best book in DC's arsenal and one of the best continuing epics in all of comics. This is my Pick of the Week. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Jul 30, 2008

    With only Johns' own Action Comics to rival this series as DC's best ongoing book right now, this issue of Green Lantern gets another unequivocal recommendation from me. If you've skipped over "Secret Origins" for any reason, you're going to be plenty sorry when Blackest Night arrives. Read Full Review

    This is definitely something that will be a great addition to the TPB collection, earning Green Lantern #33 4.5 out of 5 Stars (4 for the story, 5 for the art). Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Aug 5, 2008

    I look forward to the final chapter in this tale, as it seems we're on pace to see even more bits of DC Silver Age goodness thrown into the Green Lantern blender. This tale has been enjoyable and I would strongly recommend it, even if it means checking it out from the library after it has (inevitably) been collected. Honestly, though, why would you want to wait that long? Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Jim Aug 5, 2008

    This was a great issue. The addition of Sinestro really took this story to another level. The explaination of the Massacre of Sector 666 was informative and layed more of the ground work for the Black Lantern storyline. Read Full Review

    The Comic Addiction - Itai Rosenbaum Jul 30, 2008

    To wrap it up, don’t treat the 7 I gave the book as a sign of deterioration, the book is still one of the top comics on the stands. It is definitely the best book DC currently puts out, the only reason the grade is not a 9 or a 10, is simply due to the incredible quality of what came before. Green Lantern is the epitome of what superhero comics are, and all other books should strive to be more like it. Read Full Review
