    Undiluted in every way, and poignant “Silver Springs” reminds us also why Hal Jordan's Green Lantern spearheaded the Silver Age. And now, with the concluding chapter to “Secret of the Indigo Tribe” it feels like that groundbreaking Green Lantern has finally returned, wizened not weathered by the long road Geoff Johns took to bring him here.

    While not the best issue Johns has written, it does open some exciting new possibilities and that last page is killer (literally). Read Full Review

    See, it's issues like this that I still have faith in Geoff Johns after that Brightest Day debacle. I loved the reveal of the Indigo Tribe consisting of villains a few issues ago but the fact the rings actually work and helped changed Iroque for the better is a very interesting thing. I'm also wondering who that Indigo ring will go to, hopefully someone we know already because that will be interesting to say the least. Sinestro was awesome as usual here and I love seeing him and Hal play off of each other, with Sinestro clearly wanting to be more like Hal, even if he won't admit it. Add that in with the way Black Hand was written here, clearly showing that everything between Blackest Night and now to him was the equivalent of blinking was an awesome idea. I was wondering why he killed himself as opposed to being lobotomized by that ring but him having a trick up his sleeve is great, plus I can't say I mind having a Black Lantern ring or two around.

    Even if you haven't been following the Green Lantern up to this point, you still can get a lot of value from this issue. The last two issues are essentially the full back story to the Indigo tribe and their origin. It'sdefinitelythe coles-notes variety of a back story, but for a minor sub-section of the lanterns, I feel this is the best we are going to get for a while. Read Full Review

    Admittedly, there are really no new developments in the plot, but the character work is pretty outstanding, and the series never fails to be thrilling. Read Full Review

    I could talk for hours about the closing to this issue, but I think it's best if you just read it. There's two great stories in this issue. While one of them may have over-shadowed the other, they are both fantastic and well worth your time. Read Full Review

    Blog Of Oa - Myron Rumsey Jun 19, 2012

    "The Secret of the Indigo Tribe" ended in fine fashion with this issue, which was filled with some great character defining moments as well as a bit of a jaw dropping conclusion leading to the next issue. The strings woven throughout the Green Lantern universe are beginning to be drawn together as the plots in all four books are on a collision course that is sure to be a great rollercoaster ride this summer. Four out of five lanterns. Read Full Review

    IGN - Joshua Yehl Jun 13, 2012

    A lot happens real fast in this issue, but not to the detriment of the overall product. A great deal of ground is covered as the story moves forward in a clear direction, and Johns mercifully does so with nigh a vague prophecy spewing out of the Book of the Black or the Guardians. Sinestro has gone from the series' villain to its lovable anti-hero, and the tough decision he makes in this issue weighs on the reader because they have come to care for the guy, demon eyes and all. The strong emotions felt for Sinestro, Hal, and their plight proves yet again that Green Lantern is a series worth getting invested in. Read Full Review

    After Batman, Green Lantern is my favourite DC The New 52 title. Although DC & Geoff Johns never officially announced it & the way the Guardians are scheming, I think another major Green Lantern event is coming out in 2012. Fingers crossed. This entire story arc gets a rating of 4 stars. Read Full Review

    Green Lanterns #10 gives usimpressive visuals and deeper character development for Baz and Jessica. The mystery villain has potential to be either formidable or annoying based on what was presented so far. Solid first part of the story. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Jun 18, 2012

    "The Secret of the Indigo Tribe" isn't an arc that will remake the DC Universe like Blackest Night " and to be honest, I'm thankful for that. Even an event-spinning juggernaut like Geoff Johns needs a recharge every once in awhile, and this arc brings him closer to his roots than I've seen in a long time. In brightest day, in blackest night, and even with some rough edges, it's always the men, not the rings, that make Green Lantern shine. Beware their power, indeed. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Rob Rasmussen Jun 18, 2012

    There was one more thing the Indigo story line was supposed to resolve, the fate of Black Hand. Well, it is mostly wrapped up here, but not very pleasingly. Unfortunately, the mess is very spoiler-y so I don't want to get into it, just that I wasn't happy. Despite two glaring problems, Green Lantern #10 was still a good read. Johns manages to give a reasonably succinct story (a rarity for the man writing the huge stories he does) that delves into what makes the Lantern duo tick. As such, Green Lantern #10 earns itself 3 out of 5 stars. It really does want more, but I can't get past the end without cringing. Read Full Review

    I'm pretty sure that Black Lanterns weren't at (or anywhere near) the top of the list of what DC's reboot was missing, but it looks like they're back. The comic does give us some more strong interplay with Sinestro and Hal as well show us how much Sinestro respects Hal's ability and bravery (regardless of what he may say to the Earthman's face). Worth a look. Read Full Review
