    Weird Science - Eric Shea Feb 6, 2014

    While I've been looking forward to this flip book issue, and the introduction of Supergirl as a Red Lantern, we weren't really given much information on what's going on, or how Supergirl even became a Red.  But don't let that deter you, because this is a really good issue of Green Lanterns.  I don't know if it's because of all the interactions between the different characters, or the prospects of stories to come from this, but it's a really good time.  Hal finally seems to becoming the leader he needs to be, and a leader under fire at that.  Now it's on to Red Lanterns.

    Max Level Geek - Jonathan Semoneit Feb 5, 2014

    Writer Charles Soule handles these characters well. He's played the role of "fixer" for both Marvel (with Thunderbolts) and now DC (with Red Lanterns), taking failing books and breathing new life into them. He's become a fan favorite and is steadily creating a big name for himself in the industry. But for now, let us enjoy having top level talent on a smaller book like Red Lanterns. Read Full Review

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj Feb 7, 2014

    Plus the art is just spectacular. Hoping now I run intoVitti at some convention. So if I had to have an opening chapter to Red Daughter (a storyline I don't want to see), thisone was as good a start as I could anticipate. Read Full Review

    Infinite Comix - Jay Mattson Feb 10, 2014

    Green Lantern #28 is a fun issue, if only a bit awkward in the story's placement in the middle of a giant universal war against the Green Lanterns. It leads directly into Red Lanterns #28, and Robert Venditti does an excellent job focusing on character development in place of advancing the Durlan storyline. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero Feb 5, 2014

    wo comics for the price of one. The idea of Supergirl as a Red Lantern is a strange one. It is unexpected and will be interesting to see explored. The Green Lanterns are dealing with a lot and this just adds to the chaos they already have to face. We'll have to wait for some answers about Supergirl but at least we get to follow this story immediately in the pages of RED LANTERN, on the other side of this issue. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Derek Baker Feb 6, 2014

    If youre looking for value, this is probably the best deal in comics. Both titles have been two of DCs best. At this point, Venditti and Soule can do no wrong. Add Tan and Vitti to the mix and this book is worth well beyond the $2.99 price tag. Well done, DC. Read Full Review

    Crave Online - Andy Hunsaker Feb 6, 2014

    All in all, the GL/RL #28 stunt was an enjoyable one, if not particularly exciting, giving us a frog lantern and a bit of bitchiness between a ball lantern and a box lantern, as well as dropping a major character into the Red Lantern fray that will hopefully spike its interest levels and get the Reds mixed in with the rest of the DCU.

    Comics Refueled - superiorchris Feb 9, 2014

    Soule and Venditti balance the cross over well. They both bridge to each other without a hitch. The art is top notch on both series and are can't miss. This concept was produced perfectly. The cross over is contained to these 2 issues and won't force the reader to buy an extra book to follow it. Although I urge that you try both series. They are great and I, myself, will start picking up Red Lanterns. Buy this issue because you can't go wrong with 2 for 1. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Feb 6, 2014

    Billy Tan and Alessandro Vitti prove to be solid matches for one another, artistically. Both have fairly scratchy styles that capture the darkness of the Red Lanterns and the heroism of the Green Lanterns. Both have their issues with facial work and emotional range, but in terms of visual cohesion, this issue satisfies. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Feb 6, 2014

    "Red Alert" parts 1 and 2 are delivered in a nice, affordable package, but no conclusion to speak of save for Hal Jordan handing off a problem to Guy Gardner and brushing off his hands as he walks away. Yes, the agreement and arrangement goes deeper than that, but there is not a decisive resolution to Supergirl's predicament. Instead, this two-parter seems like an extended version of a "Red Lanterns" issue, or perhaps a displaced "Red Lanterns Annual" that has far more repercussions for the Reds than the Greens. Spinning out of this, I'm much more likely to continue on with "Red Lanterns" than "Green Lantern" as there seems to be more at stake for Guy Gardner and his crew while Hal Jordan's group seems to be walking in circles.

    Newsarama - Pierce Lydon Feb 6, 2014

    Venditti doesn't do too much more than move the chains in the story but his character work between Walker and Hal is really strong, serving to reestablish the diffrent ways that some pieces of the emotional spectrum operate. Read Full Review

    Blog Of Oa - Myron Rumsey Feb 17, 2014

    At the end of the day Green Lantern #28 is a well rounded if average issue that serves to move along the over-arcing narrative while effectively introducing Supergirl's new status quo and handing the story over to Charles Soule where it will have a more permanent residence while Kara goes through her journey as a Red Lantern.  Three out of five lanterns.

    Population Go - Chris Lemmerman Feb 12, 2014

    This issue is the latest in a long line of decent issues that have good ideas but fail to capitalize on them. The main storyline is abandoned in favour of Red Lantern Supergirl, which is then dumped onto the Red Lanterns and promptly forgotten about once again. If this hadn't been a flipbook issue, I'd probably have been less harsh than I am being, but it's like showing us two sides of the coin and one of them is distinctly shinier " and it's not Green Lantern, unfortunately.

    Green Lantern Corps - iggy Feb 6, 2014

    While the issue doesn't progress the Durlan plot further but throws the emotional spectrum right back into the mix is a bit of a let down. It's a solid issue with solid art from returning artist Billy Tan and a nice starting point for new Green Lantern readers. Read Full Review
