    GREEN LANTERN #30 is the issue that will really grab readers and make them believe that Venditti was the perfect choice to run this series. From the opening to the last page, we are treated to some solid storytelling and seeing Hal Jordan really hone the role of leader. If you're aware of what's going on in GL, this is probably one of the better places to jump on the book. We're in the midst of a fantastic new era for Green Lantern. Read Full Review

    Blog Of Oa - Myron Rumsey Apr 3, 2014

    Green Lantern #30 is my favorite issue of the Venditti era so far with a script which is balanced well between the emotion, action, humor and character that makes for a great read. While I haven't been entirely happy with how Hal has been portrayed and I'm still not a believer in the whole "emotional reservoir" theory this issue really resonated for me. Read Full Review

    Martin Coccolo takes over art duties this time around and he's a wonderful addition to the book. The opening pages of this issue are as breathtaking as the view from Mogo itself. That said, some of the art is a bit uneven, but the colorists Tony Avina and Alex Sinclair help to cover this up with their beautiful watercolor style. Read Full Review

    No Billy Tan this month, but don't worry, Martin Coccolo makes this comic his own.  Nothing against Tan, but Coccolo is someone I'd like to see on this book for a long time.  It's a beautiful issue.  But art aside, I've been on the fence about this upcoming war that Venditti has been planning, and I'm glad to say that I'm off the fence, and have Venditti's back completely.  This issue was great, and gave me everything I want in a Green Lantern title.  Humor, action, morals, and consequences, it's all here.  Great issue, go check it out.

    Overall, Venditti has been the perfect writer to take the corps closer to destruction then they have ever been. The story is now totally in his hands and this issue has been one of the best so far. The emotional beginning with the shocking conclusion is exactly what makes the Green Lantern Universe so fun and exciting. Read Full Review

    Robert Venditti delivers the goods by way of a solid character driven series. While the interior art by Coccolo is sufficient, the cover isn't Tan's best work. That being said, this book continues to be an engaging read. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Noah Sharma Apr 5, 2014

    Venditti brings a real sense of military culture to Green Lantern this month and it proves essential in bringing these characters to life. It feels like every one of the contributors has upped their game for this issue and the result is the best issue of Venditti's run. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Derek Baker Apr 3, 2014

    If youre reading this, then that means youre already failing. You need to run to your comic shop (or Comixology) and buy Green Lantern. Venditti is both the architect and the demolisher of the GL universe. Something that needs to be seen by all. Read Full Review

    Not a strong issue and one that could be avoided and nothing would be lost in the overall war plotline of this series. Read Full Review

    Population Go - Chris Lemmerman Apr 18, 2014

    With Green Lantern: New Guardians continuing to be a solid read every month that is telling its own stories and not worrying about this whole war mess, and the glimpse of greatness that Red Lanterns seems to have reached after the flip-book issue a few months back that showed me what I'd been missing with that title, as well as the recent addition of Sinestro's titular solo series (which had a great first issue) to the line-up, it's clear that there are still plenty of other places I can get my Lantern fix, and while Green Lantern seems like a bad boyfriend who can't commit to anything, I think I'll try my luck elsewhere " I encourage you to do the same.

    Infinite Comix - Jay Mattson Apr 9, 2014

    Green Lantern #30 isn't terrible, but it's also not terribly interesting. The funeral to honor the fallen Lanterns comes months too late, and the conflict on Oasis Bay seems contrived and far to small for a series about to embark on a universe-spanning war. Read Full Review

    Perhaps this was intentional but it came of as clunky and the impact required from the reader just isn't there sadly. Read Full Review
