    That's it for this chapter of GODHEAD and I don't know if it's the fact that I was really hyped to read the next chapter after finishing the grand start of the story, or if it's because this issue wasn't bogged down with a shit ton of artists, but I enjoyed it even more.  Billy Tan's art is so good and that coupled with the always brilliant colors of the book just makes Green Lantern a privilege to read.  Shit's getting real here folks and you won't want to miss all your favorite Lantern Corps try and stand up against the power of the New Gods.  Go check it out and be completely shocked by the beginning to this story.

    Billy Tan really shines in this issue with his depiction of the New Gods and their intense level of power. Additionally, his space-based layouts are a great deal of fun to see here. Read Full Review

    Since the Geoff Johns era ended, both Venditti and Tan have done a fantastic job keeping the legacy alive and well. Godhead is just one more step towards cementing their own legacy, outside of the massive shadow that Johns casts. Only two acts in and Godhead is really starting to feel huge in scope with consequences that could affect the entire DC Multiverse for years to come. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Brian Bannen Oct 6, 2014

    Regardless, Green Lantern #35 is a slow burn. It begins with violence and ends with desperation. Bringing in the New Gods is a stroke of genius as it opens up the grandness of the story, finally having a similar feel as Johns' "Rebirth," "Sinestro Corps War," or "Blackest Night." If the series lives up to its promise, Venditti will earn his spot alongside Johns, and show people that as a Green Lantern successor, he is more than worthy. Read Full Review

    Green Lantern #35 is a great issue which effectively moves the story of GodHead forward while providing some good character beats that flesh out the New Gods and illustrating how Hal is advancing as a leader.  The magnitude of the threat the New Gods pose is made clear, forcing a decision which will once again turn enemies into allies.  Four out of five lanterns.

    A strong chapter, but visually a bit stuck in the 1990s. Read Full Review

    Green Lantern #35 isn't anything we haven't seen before - and what I mean by that is an entire open field of blown-apart Corp members. Read Full Review

    I guess some people haven't been a fan of Billy Tan's pencils, but I for one find his work more than adequate. Sure, he's no Doug Mahnke, but he gets the job done, and appears to improve with each issue. Read Full Review

    Green Lantern Corps - iggy Oct 1, 2014

    Godhead Act 1 part 2 was more of an extension of part 1, sadly it felt it more like Part 1.1 then a true part 2. The crew is definitely playing the long game for this one, let's see how it plays out. The issue fell flat though. Read Full Review

    With a few early confrontations with the New Gods done for now, Godhead is shaping up already to be an event that could change the DC Multiverse going forward. The script Robert Venditti delivers is a great one, with good action, and a few quiet, somber moments that allow the reader to feel the importance of what we're seeing. Also, the differentiation of the characters in the script is great. There aren't really any archetypes being used with these characters, instead creating individual personalities for each character to fit into. It might seem strange to mention, but when dealing with crossovers, placing characters into archetypes would be really easy. But I think the strongest aspect of this issue is Billy Tan's artwork. His style, while not as detailed as Doug Mahnke's work, is similar to it. But it's differentiated enough that makes it stand out, and in a good way. Overall, this is a great second part of this first act, and I highly recommend the issue and, so far at least, the crossover. Also, a bonus shoutout to Ivan Reis' monster variant cover. It's awesome.

    Pretty good, certainly better than the opening issue of Godhead. The story and characters have the breathing room that they need and the art is good and consistent.
