    I think what brings this issue down the most is probably my expectations, after Green lantern #50 six months ago I was expecting Green Lantern Corp to do something similar adding to the mythos of the GL history and the like. What we got was a perfectly fine middle issue of an arc already in progress and if you have been following it so far this is pretty enjoyable. Read Full Review

    Tony Bedard delivers yet another solid issue of the Green Lantern Corps. I enjoy how he is able to make something as mundane as an origin, especially one already shown, engaging and involved. His portrayal of Hank elicits sadness for the character. You hope that he gets his wish to finally die especially when you see how that desire seems perpetually out of reach. The Adrian Syaf pencils are consistent to what we have been treated to in the previous issues. It is hard to imagine but this actually surpassed the main Green Lantern title in my opinion this month.

    Recommended primarily for ongoing readers or Cyborg Superman fans, but cautiously for the brave new reader as well. Read Full Review

    The biggest surprise this month, though? It's probably that Bedard didn't artificially end his story just because this is issue #50. (A rarity in comics, these days.) I was a little unsure about Bedard taking over "Green Lantern Corps," at first, but I'm convinced by now that he's the right guy for the job. Read Full Review

    As I said in my review of this weeks' Green Lantern, I continue to be intrigued by how the various light corps play out in the greater DCU cosmology following Brightest Day. This isn't quite up to the level I enjoyed during the Tomasi/ Gleason run on this title, but the spotlight on Cyborg Superman was a genuinely-moving character study, even if I think he's sorely due for a revamp.

    Green Lantern Corps is riding taller this month thanks to a returning villain who clearly has more potential left to explore. the main cast isn't faring quite as well, however, and the series has a ways to go before it starts to rival Pete Tomasi's work of the past few years. Read Full Review

    Great story, great art, fumbled writing. Worth picking up, but the craftsmanship was needlessly reduced. Read Full Review

    The lackluster (but not boring) storytelling is propped up with some great artwork by series artist Ardian Syaf. His tough and gritty looking renditions of Lanterns Stewart and Rayner, along with his strong anatomical and choreographic work remind me (as Ive stated before) of Jim Lees work. While Syaf isnt necessarily a Jim Lee clone, hes definitely a product of the Jim Lee school of art. Theres nothing wrong with that. Being compared to Jim Lee is a good thing, even if the comparison detracts from labeling Syafs artwork as original. Read Full Review
