    This is a great time to be a Green Lantern fan. Even though this is supposed to be a book about just Hal Jordan and we're seeing so many other characters thrown in, it all works so nicely. The Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan Schrodt Nov 20, 2010

    Is this the best issue of Green Lantern that we've seen lately? Not by a long shot, but that doesn't mean it isn't worth the cover price. The seams are starting to show in this is current storyline as Johns circles a bit in this issue, but when he does take a step forward, it's practically a leap. In terms of story, this issue nearly earns a Buy It verdict on the strength of Black Hand's appearance alone. When you add in a solid, but not quite up fantastic, effort from Doug Mahnke and crew, you get another issue of Green Lantern that is worth your cash. Read Full Review

    IGN - Dan Phillips Nov 18, 2010

    Between the central philosophical rift between Hal and Barry, the gradual, unnerving revelation about the Indigo Lanterns and a surprise appearance by the most infamous of the various colored entities, Johns is able to effectively suggest Hal still has a lot to prove to both his superhero allies and the Guardians of the Galaxy even after his universe-saving turn in Blackest Night. That's undoubtedly a good thing, as these new complications help invigorate this book and this franchise at a time when most other GL books are spreading the line's core storyline thin. Other than some unsuitably sloppy and rushed work from Doug Mahnke early in the book, Green Lantern #59 is one of the best GL book to hit in months. It's enough to remind you why this book was the best DC title on the stands for so long. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Nov 21, 2010

    "Green Lantern" #59 isn't by any stretch of the imagination a bad comic, but it is unfortunately an uneven one. There's a lot of good ideas in here, and some parts that will definitely be on the minds of readers until the next issue. But with such an erratic pace, it makes me wish that those issues had been smoothed out first. Read Full Review
