The penultimate "Emerald Eclipse" chapter is upon us as the breakout on Oa leads to vast devastation and death across the planet. As the War of Light rages, do Kyle Rayner, Guy Gardner, Kilowog and the rest of the Corps have the willpower to quell the riot and overcome the napalm-spewing Red Lanterns and the fear-spreading Sinestro Corps?

    After reading this comic book, I'm practically salivating with anticipation for the next issue, which should be a direct lead-in to the upcoming DC mega-event "Blackest Night". If you're a fan of DC Comics and have ANY interest at all in Blackest Night, you HAVE to give this comic a shot. Read Full Review

    Green Lantern Corps is the best Lantern book on the shelves right now. It'sinterestinghow Johns dropped the ball on the main series and seeing Tomasi's home run here, John's butterfingers are quite apparent. Buy this! Read Full Review

    Blackest Night #1 is now right around the corner, and anticipation for DC's next summer event is at a boiling point. As is often the case when ridiculously hyped projects peer just over the horizon, many fans are mixing a healthy dose of caution with their excitement. While I'm as cautiously optimistic as the next reader, the strength of Green Lantern Corps is reason alone to believe this event might actually stand a chance of living up to our lofty expectations.

    I know the opening of this review sounded like it might be a bad issue, but it was still very, very good, despite some minor issues with it. Still very much a must read book. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Avi Weinryb Jun 30, 2009

    The GL Corps title continues to entertain, and its a monthly installment of a ride I do not seek to see end any time soon. Lots of action, drama, and laughs " I dont expect anything less from a mainstream superhero monthly. If you are not in the Green Lantern camp yet, do some catching up and join up. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Jun 14, 2009

    Green Lantern Corps #37 was another solid read. Tomasi has made Green Lantern Corps so much fun that it is able to not just stand out on its own from Green Lantern, but actually surpass Green Lantern in of quality. If you are looking for a comic that is just pure fun while also playing up the events that are going to happen in Blackest Night, then I would recommend picking up Green Lantern Corps.

    I will close this review by thanking Tomasi for returning some of the fire to Arisia, one of my favourite Green Lanterns from my youth. In this issue she shows not only passion, but her experience and maturity as a member of an intergalactic police force. Well done. Read Full Review

    The Comic Addiction - Corwin C. Crowl Jun 10, 2009

    Tomasi and Gleason bring us the penultimate chapter of the six part Emerald Eclipse. This issue is certainly not the place for new readers to jump on and I can see where long time readers may grow weary of waiting for Blackest Night but I love how Tomasi is giving us multiple climaxes while still building to something bigger. The massive undertaking of intertwined plotlines as well as sharing events from Green Lantern creates a great sense of cohesion. The three major plotlines in Emerald Eclipse are framed around different members of the Green Lantern Corps. As each story bears fruit it intensifies the drama and suspense making you wish for and dread the ultimate climax at the same time. While I cannot deny that certain plotlines are more interesting than others I also cannot deny the scale of everything that is happening. In the Green Lantern universe something is happening everywhere and I get the feeling it is all going to tie together in the most unexpected way during Blackest Nig Read Full Review
