The prelude to "Blackest Night" continues as the "War of Light" heats up. Mongul commands Daxam and their Superman-like citizens plus the entire Sinestro Corps. Can Arisia and a small resistance of Daxamites defeat the fear-bearing Corps with Sodam Yat out of the picture?

    This was worth it for the Arkillo vs Mongul fight alone. Add all the delicious subplots and Blackest Night related goodies and it's hard to go wrong with this book. Read Full Review

    Leading up to "Blackest Night," Green Lantern Corps is receiving a dizzying degree of importance and thrust. From the great characterization to the exciting additions to the line, GLC is in top form. Read Full Review

    Chuck's Comic Of The Day - Chuck Mar 14, 2009

    The only problem with this comic is that it's got too much going on, so we're just getting small fragments of the story with each issue. My recommendation: resolve a storyline every now and then. Read Full Review

    "Green Lantern Corps" has quietly become an entertaining and fun book, and I actually feel a little bad that I've been dismissing it these past few years. Don't get me wrong, Geoff Johns has done a lot to really punch up the profile of "Green Lantern" and he deserves all the accolades he's received, but Tomasi and company are doing a bang-up job here, too. If you're only reading "Green Lantern," you really are missing out on some fun here, too. Read Full Review

    The Comic Addiction - Corwin C. Crowl Mar 11, 2009

    Back on Daxam the battle between Arkillo and Mongul rages on for the leadership of the Sinestro Corps. It is a bloody and fierce battle but it ends quickly and decisively. Gleason’s blow by blow panel by panel structure gives their battle an almost beautiful choreographed grace. Tomasi then begins to unfold other plot points that are sure to become of larger importance in the future. Kyle and Natu waste no time getting comfortable with each other even though it is against the third law created by the Guardians. Things like this never seem to end well for Kyle. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Koppy McFad Mar 18, 2009

    The art is powerful but also often turns confusing. Using inventive camera angles may be good for scenes but not when you are showing two alien monsters wrestling with one another. With such a huge cast of characters and a diversity of settings, the art team should exert more effort to make their work easily comprehensible. The cover for one, is barely understandable.
