    Totally Random Sidenote: Has anybody been buying the Blackest Night action figures? If so, drop me a line and let me know if they really look as cool as they do in the advertisements. I keep thinking about starting a collection of the various Lantern Corps, but I'm not quite sold on them yet, so let me know what you think! Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Herv St-Louis Dec 28, 2009

    Benes draws this issue well although he still is a poor storyteller that relies on grandstanding shots of people standing around full of angst without doing much. The section by Marco Marz actually show what a better artist can deliver in but a few pages and how Benes is overrated and out of his league in a book like Green Lantern. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan Schrodt Dec 30, 2009

    This issue nearly jumped into Buy It range, but the thin plot in the main story and the unnecessary backup story drag it down. I will say, however, that this is the best John Stewart has been written in a very long time and that this issue is worth a read for that reason alone. Read Full Review
