    This is the place to start if you've wanted to start a Green Lantern book. Sure, things may be a little confusing, but this book does a much better Read Full Review

    Green Lantern Corps has been one of DC Comics standout books since its first issue, and even with the creative team changes, it looks like it will continue to be a standout. Its going to be interesting to see the effect Ganthet will have on the future of the Corps now that hes down in the trenches. More importantly though, it will be interesting to see just what hes up to Read Full Review

    I liked it. Tony seems to have a definitive idea of where he's going with this series, and I for one am glad to see Guy Gardner replaced for John Stewart. Read Full Review

    DC is knocking them out of the park this week! One after another. This issue is freakishly fun and priced to move. Pick it up. Read Full Review

    Regular fans of GLC will be happy to see their best-loved title is in good hands with the new creative team. Their first issue on board is a good mix of plot developments, character moments, and hints at the future. Read Full Review

    I enjoyed this issue and I was definitely hesitant coming into it. As you might expect with the opening to any arc, the story is just getting started. I found the issue to be entertaining and it makes me think the future for the title is as bright as ever. Read Full Review

    By the way, I was supposed to review Justice League: Generation Lost #2 this week, but upon reading the issue I find that I have nothing to add to what Danny Djeljosevic said about the first issue a couple of weeks ago. So if youre curious about what I would have said, simply read Dannys review again and pretend its not as well written. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin May 31, 2010

    Green Lantern Corps #48 was a solid start for the new creative team of Tony Bedard and Ardian Syaf. While I was not blown away by GLC #48 Bedard did show he has a good grasp of all the characters on this title, especially Ganthet. I still dont know if I am going to be sticking around this title for all of Bedard and Syafs run but I am willing to give them at least one story arc to convince me to keep GLC on my pull list. With that said this issue is a great jumping on point for new readers and if you are looking for more Green Lantern goodness than this issue is one you should pick up. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan Schrodt May 27, 2010

    This issue isn't necessary bad, but its not that great either. The best way to describe it is to say that it is "just there." If you are hardcore fan of Ganthet or even John Stewart, you might get more out this issue than I did, but I was just tremendously underwhelmed. I didn't hate it, but I'm not sure that I'd ever want to read it again either. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren May 31, 2010

    Solid debut issue for Tony Bedard and Adrian Syaf. I'll miss Peter Tomasi and Patrick Gleason, but I don't see me dropping this title over their departure and expect it to continue to be a favourite of mine. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton May 26, 2010

    "Green Lantern Corps" #48 isn't a bad book, but it's slightly forgettable. Nothing jumps out as a particularly great or awful moment, positioning the book exactly in the middle of the road. In comparison to the previous creative team on the title, that's a shame because it was so much fun in their hands. Still, it's just Bedard and Syaf's first issue. I don't want to write them off immediately out of the gate (especially since Bedard's written some fun outer space super-hero books in the past), but so far there's little to make me dying to see what happens next.

    I expected Green Lantern Corps 48 to take a dip without Tomasi and Gleason, but Bedard and Syaf more than fill their shoes. I’m actually very excited for the next issue
