    In general, Tomasi has developed a deep comfort and confidence with the world of the Green Lantern Corps, from Kyle and Guy's new bar, to the training grounds of Oa, to the prison science cells that house the captured Sinestro Corps members. He has likewise developed an ability to seamlessly slip in and out of the individual voices of his large and eclectic cast, making the book feel intimidate even when its dealing with a number of very different personalities. This issue's art, provided by guest penciller Luke Ross, is also top notch, and reminded me of Kevin MacGuire at times, specifically his ability to draw expressive faces. It's another wonderful issue of one of the most consistently entertaining books on the stands. Read Full Review

    If you can only buy one Green Lantern comic, stick with the original - but if you enjoy it, Green Lantern Corps is a good companion title, and gives you a little more green for your bucks. Read Full Review

    Finally, just when I think the story in GLC is getting boring compared to its brother series, Green Lantern, Tomasi sucks me right back in with a great cliffhanger leading into the next arc of his run. If youve been following this series, Green Lantern Corps #28 will seem like more of the same goodness because of the building plot developments. For everyone else on the fence, this months issue might not be the best showcase of what this series has to offer because the art doesnt look as good as months with Patrick Gleason on duty.

    Main story is rather uninspired work, but the subplots and foundation being layed for the Blackest Night are interesting. Read Full Review

    Artwise, Luke Ross and Fabio Laguna do a perfectly serviceable job filling in for the regular art team. It's solid work, if not as creepily dynamic as Patrick Gleason's. But really, my biggest fault with the issue was that it was really the end of this story. Which means that no one involved is lacking talent, it's just that too much of it was squandered by confining it to such slim quarters. Read Full Review
