    I'm torn–no pun intended. Should I be loving this “spin-off” more than the original title, 'cause I sure am! Fun and frightening as the dominoes are finally struck. Read Full Review

    If there's any setback to this story at all, it is that it looks like the writers are setting Guy Garnder, my favorite Lantern of all time, for a major downfall. But Guy's a tough nut to crack and DC has put him through a lot of crap in the past (Anyone remember Guy becoming the Warrior?) so I have no doubt he'll come out on top. I just hope DC doesn't hurt him too much before he does. Read Full Review

    Setting aside the repetitious qualities of the premise, Tomasi once again delivers a tense look at how the Lanterns get along in the field. Cafu's art is slightly diminished from before, but still a great thing to look at. Read Full Review

    Green Lantern Corps #13 is a solid issue that brings the Third Army threat into the limelight at the cost of one of the book's supporting characters.  With this new threat unleashed I've got a feeling that Vandor is just one of many tragic losses the Corps are going to be faced with as this story looks to be another defining event in the history of Green Lantern.  Four out of five lanterns.

    Although not the best issue so far, this brought the Army into focus for the Corps. The reader can see the Guardians' duplicity easily and it's not going to be something that the Corps will be able to understand. It's going to be interesting to see the fallout of what happens with the Guardians, Guy, and the rest of the Corps. Read Full Review

    "Ultimately, Green Lantern Corps does have a winning formula compared to some of the other books of the New 52, and in that regard I can understand trying to keep the chemistry and tone of this book intact. On the other hand, part of me feels like the book could use a kick in the pants to get more buzz, and Cafu is a criminally underrated artist in the DC stable as is. Put him on the right book " with the right inker " and he could become DC's version of Steve McNiven. Instead, Green Lantern Corps is keepin' on keepin' on, a "good enough" rather than an ambitious high roller. Read Full Review

    This is a down the middle of the road issue for me. GREEN LANTERN CORPS is an ok book. I think Tomasi's writing is pretty solid, and he does well with the dialogue, but I felt the most compelling part of this issue, John's story, was so brief and it overshadowed Guy's story which was just alright for me. The art was, again "alright," but I had big problems with the face we saw numerous pages with the exact same panel set up. Read Full Review
