    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Sep 30, 2009

    22pages of nonstop adrenline rush that is tightly paced and beautifully rendered. Take your favourite Sinestro Corps War issue and this will more than likely blow it out of the water. Excellent job by all involved. Read Full Review

    ComicList - Brandon Borzelli Oct 3, 2009

    This is a comic book that probably shouldn't be missed by anyone. Regardless of if you have following the Blackest Night event or not, this comic has a lot to offer any reader. After reading this you can see how more of the Blackest Night story is going to shake out but what will happen to the status quo when it ends? I can't imagine a better comic book than this one. The Blackest Night mini series might not be living up to the hype yet, but don't let that turn off from this series. Read Full Review

    You dig space operas, science fiction and superheroics? Codes of honor and moral conviction? New Age-y metaphysics, crystals and stuff like that? Hot shot bad boys and beautiful women? Do you like to have FUN? It’s all in Green Lantern and Blackest Night. Do yourself a favor and read it. If you don’t want to start something in the middle, go back and buy all the trades. You will not regret it. Read Full Review

    The Comic Addiction - Corwin C. Crowl Oct 1, 2009

    Johns and Mahnke deliver a great story which is beginning to approach the greatness of the Sinestro Corps War. Every issue comes jam packed with great excitement that I have yet to find in other books on a consistent basis. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan Schrodt Oct 1, 2009

    Geoff Johns brings his Agame for writing both action and character development in this issue, giving Doug Mahnke an amazing story to work with. While Mahnke's usual level of quality would have been enough to make this a Must Read book, he too steps up his efforts and produces what is easily one of the finest issues I've ever seen from him and certainly my favorite issue of his since Final Crisis Requiem or his great work on StormWatch P.H.D. This is an incredibly intense, incredibly wellthought out, and incredibly executed story that brings the goods in terms of action and doe such amazing character work that you'll be cheering on Sinestro by the end of it.

    Comic Book Revolution - Rokk Krinn Oct 2, 2009

    Green Lantern #46 was an outstanding read. Johns finally hit his stride with this issue and delivered the type of read that I have been expecting with Blackest Night. Green Lantern #46 was a deep read that was nicely balanced. Johns treats the reader to equal amounts of adrenaline pumping action as well as some fine dialogue and character work. Read Full Review

    IGN - Bryan Joel Sep 30, 2009

    I was initially underwhelmed at GL's "Blackest Night" offerings, which started as an average battle scene on earth. I never imagined it'd grow to this level, but I'm very thankful it did. Add issue #46 of this title to Geoff Johns's growing list of Green Lantern universe masterpieces. Read Full Review

    Comix 411 - David Torres Oct 5, 2009

    If you're already reading the Blackest Night series, you've picked this one up already so I don't have to recommend it to you. Next month's issue deals with the fight between the Blue Lanterns and Agent Orange. Looking forward to it. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Tony Rakittke Oct 1, 2009

    Green Lantern is a fantastic comic gripped in the middle of the greatest storyline of the year. There might be better ways to spend your hard-earned Yanqui dollars, but crack is evil and prostitution is only legal in Vegas, so why not try this comic instead? Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Andy Frisk Sep 30, 2009

    Overall, the uneasy alliance of Hal, Carol, and Sinestro really hasnt collated, but it appears that there will have to be one. It really will be uneasy if Sinestro, Hal, and Carol have to work together long term to meet the threat of The Blackest Night, as just a few years ago, (probably just months in comic book time) Hal had to save the universe from Sinestro. The idea of Sinestro and Hal working as allies should be considered blasphemy, but the need to survive might end up making for strange bedfellows. Read Full Review

    Another solid issue but the dreaded crossover fatigue has settled in a made this storyline a little less fun. Read Full Review
