    An extremely cool winding down to the “Uprising” action, with the villains fracturing in a spectacular way. Read Full Review

    The war seems to becoming to an end people, and man what a ride it's been so far.  Venditti has certainly peaked my interest, and I can't wait to see what Jensen and him have in store for us with the finale.  But I'm getting ahead of myself because we still have a bunch of this story to read, it's just weird with what happened in this book it seems like we're getting to the conclusion next, but it's all good we're not and I'm really pumped, because even though I say it a lot, it seems like shit is getting real.  A really great GL story that every ring reader should be getting into.  So go check it out and join the war in progress.

    Comic Vine - Corey 'Undeadpool' Schroeder Jun 4, 2014

    The Uprising storyline has been a highly compelling one, and the developments this issue seem content to keep pushing it forward. Weve still got three issues to go, but this one feels like a much more advanced one, and I mean that in the most complimentary way possible. I think that, even without the full knowledge of whats going on, this is still worth picking up, though youll definitely get more out of it if youre also reading GREEN LANTERN CORPS.

    #32 is a very compelling issue that gives us a lot of information as to how the rest of the story line will play out. A must have if you've been reading the “Uprising” story arc, this is the best issue thus far. From the growth we see of Hal as a leader, to the dastardly deeds of the Durlans, #32 has more positives than negatives. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Watsonian Jun 5, 2014

    A story such as this, taking great lengths to weave in subtle intricacies scaffolding upon each other, can be a letdown to some comic fans. Todays audience, generally speaking, wants immediate payoffs and immediate gratification. This story doesnt do that. We do get some answers, especially in the last two issues of this crossover, as to just what the Durlans are planning. Those rewards for the reader, however, are only a strong suit based on the seeds Venditti and Jensen (over in Green Lantern Corps) have been planting for months. The final page in this issue would be a meaningless payoff without Venditti's character work he began in November. As this story slowly builds towards its crescendo, this reader is left with great anticipation for the next chapter. Read Full Review

    Blog Of Oa - Myron Rumsey Jun 5, 2014

    Green Lantern #32 balances some nice character work with a considerable amount of action and dialog, leaving the reader to ponder the fate of the people of Zezzen as the Durlans move in to execute their final gambit.  It's a great read, however it you haven't been reading both this title and Green Lantern Corps (shame on you if you aren't!) the game changing information might not carry the dramatic weight it does if you are reading both series.  Four out of five lanterns.

    IGN - Mike Logsdon Jun 5, 2014

    This chapter is certainly interesting and unexpected, but hopefully we'll see our heroes earning their keep as we have been up until this point before the final conclusion. Billy Tan handles the art, and while it's good overall, there are also a few weak spots too. Read Full Review

    Fans of Venditti's personal style will enjoy what he's doing here but, objectively, I can't call it one of the best of his run. Read Full Review

    Infinite Comix - Jay Mattson Jun 9, 2014

    Green Lantern #32 is a fun issue, but it's also a prime example of why the Green Lantern name isn't as powerful as it once was. The more time spent questioning the actions of the Green Lantern Corps in-story will eventually lead to readers questioning the same thing about their monthly pull lists. Yes, it's exciting to read about the Corps getting into a pickle, but when something like "Uprising" is just normal episode for Green Lantern, it starts to become boring. Read Full Review

    Green Lantern Corps - iggy Jun 4, 2014

    Green Lantern #31 sure felt like filler in some aspects, but the plot of the Durlans continues to be strong and is still engaging and it leaves readers with questions of what else is up these shape shifters sleeves. Tan's art here wasn't terrible it was consistent for the most part, just several parts came off as weird or distracting. The title continues to remain solid overall. Read Full Review

    Final note, and final groan, is the fact that not only do we not see Sodam Yat, but he isn't even mentioned! Why is this? Who knows, but he is surely set to appear in the next issue of Green Lantern Corps. At least I hope so, because the arc needs something to inject life into it, and soon. Read Full Review

    Loving this storyline, shame about the subpar art.

    I don't get the impression that these Durlans are very intelligent at all. They're pretty much eliminating everyone EXCEPT the Green Lanterns. They are practically Lantern sympathizers, but the logic is that they will become invulnerable... soon. As in not yet! Maybe do that first guys? Other wise not a bad issue, but the art was a little confusing a couple times.

    The arc is still very promising, but still issue feel pretty transitional .

    I think that clearly the highlight here was the way the Durlans took care of Khuds. It was badass(logically ofc) and there was a great rhythm in the way it was drawn. The conflict was also logical and build upon the established characteristics of the 2 alien races.

    As for the rest well I think, that overall the issue was pretty empty and slow. It moves the story, but not by much and even that was not that well-done or even that much, but it was enjoyable enough. Hal's also pretty static here, which was something he was not in the previous few issues, but i guess something big is coming so it's normal. Just it was not emotionally or thematica more
