    A good chapter in this saga, but the antagonist is still too unclear. Read Full Review

    Green Lantern Corps #19 reads pretty fast due to the decision to let the action do the talking, something that many have complained as the missing element for the Wrath of the First Lantern story.  Fernando Pasarin carries the weight of an issue which prepares the Green Lantern Corps for the final act in Peter Tomasi's run.  Four out of five lanterns.

    A month away from the conclusion of Wrath of the First Lantern and I'm starting to rethink I'm position on the storyline as it finally seems to be picking up. I am a bit torn though, I don't want to get my hopes to high for the remaining issues as going in with low expectations seems to be working out. So, between this week and last week, I'd say Green Lantern was more interesting, but Green Lantern Corps #19 definitely continued the momentum as we draw ever nearer to the story's conclusion.

    I'd recommend this issue to anyone heavily invested in the Wrath of the First Lantern storyline, though those people are likely already going to buy it. Fans of Green Lantern Corps as a title likely won't be disappointed either, but ultimately the entire issue, no matter how well drawn or paced, rings rather hollow and bereft of focus or character development. Mogo's return is quickly reduced to an easy plot device and, while I hope it will have far-reaching implications, at the time being it's merely a drop in the bucket of the greater plot. This entire event is beginning to feel very, very rushed, just as the last Green Lantern event was quickly swept aside as this one began. Read Full Review

    Unfortunately, the art feels detached from the narrative. Strange things happen, and then we are treated to some explanations that try to explain what the crazy imagery we just saw is supposed to mean. Throughout his run on this title, Fernando Pasarin has done countless double page spreads that fill the page with countless details. It's admirable given the effort those details must require, but I find it difficult to latch on to any central image amongst the chaos. There's no real focus, and given the "so what?" nature of this chapter's events, the same can be said about the entire issue. Read Full Review

    Kudos to Pasarin for some terrific action, but otherwise the story feels distinctly like a throwaway, which is not the best way to lead up to a finale. Read Full Review

    The Comic Book Revue - Jay Mattson Apr 13, 2013

    Green Lantern Corps #19 is as much a filler issue as you can get. It involves contrived character development based on a continued 'deus ex machina' device. Nothing about the plot is really advanced at all. It's only worth it if you're a completionist. Read Full Review

    Bad dialogue, sloppy plotting, painful artwork " I try to find something good whenever I read a comic, but this is a book to avoid. Read Full Review

    This issue is ALL about the artwork. It's beautiful. I'd give the art a rating of 9. However, there's not much story here. Mogo brings the corp to himself and releasing Volthoom's mental hold on them. That's about it. Not much there. So, I'd give the story a 7. That gives this issue an 8 overall.

    Getting a little tired of Volthoom. Tomasi gives Guy the corniest dialogue
