    While I was a little cool to the last storyline with Hank Henshaw and the Alpha Lanterns, I think Bedard's shaken the transition pangs out, now, and he's setting up a much more interesting storyline here. I'm eager to see this long-established part of GL's mythos finally get an update to fit into the new cosmology - - though I still wish they'd given the Weaponer a totally new outfit.

    The art is still a bit rough, focusing a lot on exaggerated features, much like a 1990s comic book. But it also captures the danger of the situation and the plight of the heroes. Read Full Review

    Tyler Kirkham's career essentially started as an artist on various Top Cow Productions books. Since the house style for those comics really doesn't appeal to me, I wasn't looking forward to the visual component of this comic book. Fortunately, the over-the-top nature of the antagonist and the action suit his exaggerated style quite well. Furthermore, his portrayal of the one female character in the book isn't too gratuitously depicted (unlike the variant cover illustrated by Patrick Gleason). One could argue that her brief appearances focus on her cleavage or butt too much, but it really didn't strike me as such when I was reading this issue. Read Full Review

    "Green Lantern Corps" fans should definitely be happy with Bedard at the helm of the ship now; it feels, story-wise, just like it did when Tomasi was still in charge. Some of the other titles in this corner of the DC Universe might be flailing around a bit, but "Green Lantern Corps" is holding steady and is still as entertaining as always. Read Full Review

    Kirkham’s art is a pleasant surprise and Bedard delivers another solid issue. Narrowing down the cast for this comic has done wonders for it
