Blackest Night comes to its epic and stunning conclusion in this over-sized issue as the Green Lantern Corps descends on Earth to make their final stand against Nekron and the Black Lanterns!

    If you are into big action, this is the issue for you. This is one is pure battle from start to finish and is one of the most exciting fights that we've seen since Blackest Night began with some of the more creative moments. The problem is that this is really undercut by the fact that this battle has been raging forever and the story itself is nothing new. This feels tacked on to the story to fill time, especially when someone like the AntiMonitor is dispatched fairly quickly (despite at one time being the biggest horror ever faced in the DCU). As a standalone issue, this one is fantastic, but as part of the larger story, it feels unnecessary. Read Full Review

    I just wish Tomasi would have left that one skeleton in the closet, or in this case, that one woman in the refrigerator. Read Full Review

    Green Lantern Corps #46 was enjoyable popcorn for the brain. While there is not much depth to this issue, Green Lantern Corps #46 still offers the reader a pretty looking issue that is a fast paced and action packed read. I would suspect that most readers who have been following Blackest Night will enjoy this issue. However, you certainly do not need to read Green Lantern Corps #46 in order to enjoy Blackest Night #8.

    Comic Book Bin - Koppy McFad Mar 28, 2010

    Small quibbles: making Guy a Star Trekkie seems to be out of character. It feels like the writer is speaking for himself rather than a hardcore jock like Guy. Also, no mention of Guy's other dead girlfriend, Kari Limbo? Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Stephen Joyce Mar 19, 2010

    Green Lantern Corps has been a delight to read throughout Blackest Night and this latest issue doesnt disappoint. Peter Tomasi had a challenge on his hands with some much going on in one issue and he pulled it off beautifully with the help of Patrick Gleason. This latest chapter for the corps has definitely been a highlight for the series and it was great to see this chapter end on a high note as we get ready for the conclusion of Blackest Night. Even if you havent been reading Green Lantern Corps this issue is a must read for Blackest Night fans. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Mar 17, 2010

    Review aside, I didn't hate this issue. It's biggest flaw is the timing of the story and the general feeling that Tomasi already told his story, the Battle of Oa, and is now just killing time with the standard tiein storyline all the Blackest Night tieins have been throwing together. Where it was an essential part of the story in previous months, it's merely a filler issue this time around. Read Full Review

    Chuck's Comic Of The Day - Chuck Mar 20, 2010

    This comic is basically doing the grunt work for the Blackest Night and Green Lantern comics, and battle fatigue is definitely setting in. I'm looking forward to the wrapup on this storyline. Read Full Review

    ComicList - Brandon Borzelli Mar 20, 2010

    This comic book wouldn't have been so terrible if it weren't supposed to be the big bang before the ending of the event. Instead it literally feels like this book's purpose was to stall. I just can't believe this is the best effort from Tomasi who has mastered this title over the last two years. I really believe the creators involved with Blackest Night had about five months of story and were asked to stretch it to nine. If you like battles with little point and no story for thirty, pretty pages then this is for you. Read Full Review

    The Comic Addiction - Robert Tacopina Mar 20, 2010

    Peter Tomasi is in my opinion a better writer than this and his insistence on using this tired routine is showing in his work. I do like his dialogue particularly in the case of Guy Gardner as he allows Guy to come across as an authoritative presence while still maintaining his edge. Patrick Gleason is the one consistent throughout this all as his work is continuously worthy of recognition. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Mar 17, 2010

    "Green Lantern Corps" #46 isn't a bad issue, but it feels a little muddled and unfocused. The tone shifts a bit too much for my taste, and the scenes involving the fridge seem grafted on and out of place. It's a strange misstep for a book that is normally so much better, but at least their misstep is still an average comic overall. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - DS Arsenault Mar 17, 2010

    I'm sad to say, but this issue is forgettable, and maybe even skippable (too bad that's not a real word). Save your money and go straight to Blackest Night #8, unless you want to see the same battle you've seen in the last few issues. Read Full Review
