    Comics Bulletin - Kevin Powers Oct 4, 2007

    Overall, this is hands down the best issue of Green Lantern Corps to date, and the best Green Lantern Corps installment of The Sinestro Corps War. So many questions are answered and even more are raised as the fight steamrolls towards Earth. As a Green Lantern fan I couldnt be happier, as a comic fan, this is what big events are made of. This is my Pick of the Week. Read Full Review

    IGN - Dan Phillips Oct 3, 2007

    This installment concludes the dire battle for Mogo, the living Green Lantern planet, with the struggle between Kilowog's GL soldiers and their Sinestro Corp counterparts reaching a frantic, heart-pounding conclusion when the Guardians desperately enact a new law into the book of Oa. It's a pivotal turning point in this epic story, and it is handled with the perfect amount of gravity and foreboding. Like I said, casual Green Lantern readers can get by without reading this issue, but I have no idea why the hell someone would want to miss out on something this fantastic. The "Sinestro Corp War" continues to do so much more than live up to its much-deserved hype. This is superhero comics at its best. Get it while it's hot. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Oct 3, 2007

    Despite the minor complaint with the art, this issue was nearly perfect and maintains the high standards of the Sinestro Corps War with an explosive finish to the Ranx / Mogo battle. I loved seeing the reactions of the various Lanterns as the rings revealed that lethal force had been enabled and many of them almost seemed to be in a blood lust afterwards. Not sure if it will relate to the Red Lanterns hinted at in Booster Gold, which is written by Green Lantern's Johns, or just a heat of the moment type response from everyone. Either way, can't wait to get more of this story. Read Full Review

    The Comic Addiction - Corwin C. Crowl Sep 17, 2007

    This book may read quickly but the all out action is paced so well with the story beats that you feel satisfied. Gleason and Unzueta are joined by a third inker in this issue. I am not entirely sure if it is the inkers but Unzueta’s art is blending better with Gleason’s. You can still tell the difference between the two but it does not feel as jarring as it used to. It is getting harder to rate these issues on their own because so much is happening and carrying over from the previous parts. It all starts to merge together in your mind. After another quick glance through the issue I have to commend Gibbons on keeping the recaps to a minimum. You learn all you need to know from the character’s dialogue and he does not make it campy or forced. Read Full Review

    I think this book is a vast improvement from what I have read so far on this series, but I didnt have to look at Cyborg-Superman, the Anti-Monitor, or Superman-Prime either. I got the battle of Hoth, with decent artwork and a taste of my new favorite Green Lantern to dislike. Read Full Review
