    And then there's the work of Ivan Reis, which stands head and shoulders above 98 percent of any work you'll find in current mainstream superhero comics. As incredible as Reis' work was on The Sinestro Corp, this issue is perhaps even more impressive, as its wide range of locales showcases his ridiculous versatility. Reis moves from emotionally fueled earth-bound scenes to sweeping outer space set pieces without missing a beat. I know I'll be counting down the issues until he returns to this book.

    As a long-time fan, it's heartwarming to see one of my childhood heroes back in top form, and being handled with intelligence and respect. Every comics character should be so lucky! Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Shawn Aldridge Oct 10, 2008

    I'm giving this issue a four rating only because it's the last part of a story arc. But I'd give the whole of "Secret Origin" a five. If you enjoy well told superhero stories, then you should do yourself a favor and start reading Green Lantern. It really is one of the best books going right now; intricately layered without being to heavy-handed. This issue may not be the best jumping on point for a new reader, simply because it's the end of a story, but that just means the next issue will be since it starts a whole new adventure.

    If you are going to retcon a retcon, then Geoff Johns is the guy youd hire to do it. Im giving Green Lantern #35, 3.5 out of 5 Stars and the overall Secret Origin arc 3 out of 5 Stars. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Koppy McFad Oct 10, 2008

    The problems of this issue tend to lie in pacing. Too much time has been taken up re-telling Jordan's origin, mostly just to build up the suspense for the big 'Blackest Night' event. There have been other comic books that have taken months or even years to build up the suspense for their big 'epic' tales but they did this by having stories that stand on their own as well. This recap of Jordan's first days as a Green Lantern have been all build-up and would not be very enjoyable if we didn't know that they were all part of a big DC event coming up. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Oct 8, 2008

    I want to give it a Must Read, but, unlike the last couple of issues, there's almost no new content related to the present day story. We see some foreshadowing of the Red Lanterns, but only for a panel or two and the rest is just some entertaining dialogue with the Guardians. Read Full Review
