    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Apr 16, 2009

    While Johns deals with the more dubious aspects of the multiple corps, such as wearing multiple rings, Tomasi is content to give us nonstop action and Sinestro Corps Warlike moments month in, month out and this issue, and storyline, is the equivilent of a Battle of Mogolike minievent building up to the Blackest Night.

    I am really impressed with how well this series works with John's Green Lantern. In a sense, Green Lantern Corps compliments and completes the main series. Read Full Review

    I guess you can hardly blame them, since her, uh, "S" logo is so prominent - but since she's a teenager, it just seems a bit unseemly. I'm just saying is all. Read Full Review

    As crowded as both Lantern books are these days, it's almost enough to make one wonder if a third series isn't necessary. The fact that I'd so quickly accept a third lantern book is proof enough that DC is doing right by this franchise. Things are only heating up as Blackest Night looms closer. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Erik Norris Apr 16, 2009

    So let me reiterate--go out and buy Green Lantern Corps. It's just as good, if not better than Green Lantern and really fills in the missing pieces leading to the hugely hyped "Blackest Night" event. A lot of people are interested in DC's next summer event and GLC is a perfect way to hype yourself up and get informed with everything the event intends to bring. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Rokk Krinn Apr 16, 2009

    Green Lantern Corps #35 was an entertaining issue that should appeal to readers who enjoy like Sci-Fi or super hero stories. Green Lantern Corps #35 should appeal to action fans, but the issue has enough depth that readers who prefer plot heavy stories should enjoy this issue as well. If you are interested in the Blackest Night event but find Green Lantern a bit too slow then you might want to give Green Lantern Corps a try. Read Full Review

    The Comic Addiction - Corwin C. Crowl Apr 15, 2009

    It is a weird feeling to have a palpable excitement for a book every month. I am not talking about the usual excitement of finding out what happens after a cliff hanger either. I am talking about the rush of possibilities that invade your mind as you look at the cover. I am talking about the urge to devour the contents of the book as quickly as possible to satiate the gaping hole in your gut. I am talking about Peter Tomasi and Patrick Gleason. They make me look forward to this book every month and every month I give them praise in these reviews for the energetic, dynamic and thought provoking stories told within the pages of the Green Lantern Corps. It really should come as no surprise that they are often at the top of my Wednesday stack of comics to read. The same thing can be said about Goeff Johns and whichever A class artist he is working with on Green Lantern. While Johns mainly concentrates on Hal Jordan and John Stewart, Tomasi has hundreds of Green Lanterns to play with even t Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Timothy Callahan Apr 16, 2009

    Sinestro's Hitler haircut might be a bit much, but "Green Lantern Corps" #35 is a salvo in a cosmic war, and it's suitably epic. And we're not even close to "Blackest Night" yet. That bodes, and it bodes well. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Apr 20, 2009

    Gotta say, even thought I saw that one comin' (wondered about it from day one, actually) it's still an effective reveal, and doesn't in itself weaken the character of Sinestro the way I worried it would. Granted, we'll see how it all plays out in the long term, but it's interesting to see a variation on the old argument about nature versus nurture (or even "ontogeny recapitulates phylogeny") play out. Hopefully, the cliche about apples and their relative distance from their relative arborial points of origin upon the release of all potential energy in a kinetic fashion isn't true, at least for Soranik's sake. Overall, this issue is good, though the fight in the scincecells suffers a bit from unclear storytelling (partly because of the various bug-eyed-monsters looking a bit similar save for color of Lantern) and Arisia's eyes are often disturbingly huge. Still, it's a nice setup for more "War of Light" stuff, giving depth to the story in Green Lantern last week (as this chaos t Read Full Review
