    Green Lantern Corps has been a wonderful companion piece to the Hal Jordan Green Lantern comic and a strong addition to the DC line of titles in general. Editor Adam Schlagman deserves a ton of credit for making the Green Lantern books the strongest this company has to offer. It isnt often that an editor gets called out in a positive way but I am doing so here. Kudos to all who had a hand in this books creation for providing an all out space opera romp of action and emotion. Read Full Review

    Green Lanterns face zombies, again, but different. This time all of creation isn't at stake, but this is still a dangerous place for the GLC and a fun adventure for us! Pick it up! Read Full Review

    Under Tomasi and Gleason, Green Lantern Corps was my favorite book at DC for years, so Bedard and Syaf have big shoes to fill. While they haven't blown me away just yet, they are just starting off and I'm confident that this book is in good hands. I'm a little leery about this storyline with Cyborg Superman running too familiar, but I'll give them the benefit of the doubt that'll put a worthwhile twist on him. Read Full Review

    This is a fairly good issue overall, although it doesn't do anything particularly exciting. It does a serviceable job of progressing the story, re-introducing the villain, and putting the heroes in peril, but I hope that the conclusion does more than that, and takes it further to a different level.

    Green Lantern Corps is in good hands at the moment, but there is certainly a great deal of room for improvement in the coming months. I'm waiting for Bedard to unleash more of the creative energy that made him stand out in R.E.B.E.L.S. Once that happens, we should hopefully have a GL series that lives up to its legacy yet carves a distinct new path in the DCU. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Jun 24, 2010

    Green Lantern Corps #49 was mix of good and bad. Bedard is still running into the same problems he had in the previous issue. John continues to be the least interesting character in this title but Bedard is doing a solid job writing Ganthet, Kyle, and Soranik. Also the appearance of Cyborg Superman and him leading the Alpha Lanterns is an interesting development. Hopefully Bedard will improve on the weakness he has been having in these first two issues.

    A good read that was a solid improvement over their debut issue last month. Not a perfect issue, but enjoyable and I'm expecting big things with next month's issue now that Cyborg Superman is back in the mix. Read Full Review

    "Green Lantern Corps" #49 is a solid installment in such a series. It hasn't skipped a beat with the departure of Peter Tomasi. The Corps marches on. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan Schrodt Jun 25, 2010

    Other than the issue with how John is drawn, Ardian Syaf's art is what really kept this otherwise uninteresting issue out of last place on this week's Rankings. I'm sure you can get more out of it if you are fan of the main characters, but I just couldn't get interested in this issue no matter how hard a I tried thanks to the lackluster plot and lifeless characters.
