    IGN - Tyler Parker Feb 17, 2010

    All complaints seem fairly miniscule as the issue comes to close, and you realize how impressive the creative team has been over the course of Blackest Night. Tomasi and Gleason have really embraced the zany (Sapphire tether construct anyone?), over-the-top nature of the series and twisted it into something insanely enjoyable. As Blackest Night draws closer to its finale, expect the different stories across the multiple titles to converge - this issue concludes with an awesome setup for the final leg of the Blackest Night event. The next two months should prove to be exhilarating for Green Lantern fans, and Green Lantern Corps will be an integral part of the experience. Read Full Review

    "Green Lantern Corps" is the sort of title that should have been a dud; a spin-off of a popular comic but using the protagonists who didn't get to be in the main title sounds like a recipe for disaster. It's nice to see creativity and fun brought to this side title just like the main comic. If all spin-offs were this consistently fun, it could only be a good thing. Read Full Review

    Green Lantern Corps #45 was the weakest issue that we have gotten from Tomasi in quite a long time on this title. I would certainly recommend this issue to fans of Guy Gardner. However, readers who are simply following Blackest Night do not need to bother buying this Blackest Night tie-in issue. Absolutely nothing happens of real importance in this issue. Simply pick up Blackest Night #7 and you will be just fine. Read Full Review

    I want to love this, but it's a clear throttling back of the title compared to previous issues and felt like Tomasi just had to get everyone back into position for the conclusion to Blackest Night. Did not care for the convenient reusing of Mogo to solve all their problems with little to no consequences for the second month in a row either. Read Full Review

    If you like Guy Gardner then this is a good issue for you. However, between the flat dialogue and the head-scratching diversion from the main story, this story isn't on the level of previous installments from this series. The art helps prop this one up but ultimately this is not an essential issue and really has little to do with Blackest Night and very little to do with the war of light. Read Full Review

    " This one just doesn't seem to get what makes the Corps, Guy Gardner or Mogo tick, and that's a big weakness. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan Schrodt Feb 19, 2010

    There are a handful of moments in this issue that really had me super excited, but the predictability and the fact that Mogo seems to have the magic resolution for the second issue in a row are just too big of issues to ignore. Plus, there is the problem of the art being so uneven once again. After rocking out really hard for several years, the art on this title has really been slipping over the last few months. I really hope that trend reverses sometime soon. Read Full Review
