    GLC is not a straight brawler comic but it features more fights per page than most, if not all, the other comics out there. There is character drama, useful dialogue, and a sense of gritty realism that when paired with is completely unrealistic and fantastic characters and settings, make for pure entertainment that doesn't let down or disappoint. The only real flaw I can see with this series is the level of violence. Not exactly ideal material for kids but the quality in the story should allow adults to feel comfortable reading intergalactic police drama. Did I say recommended!? Read Full Review

    Pasarins work is crisp and detailed. Hes good with alien designs too. He also knows how to create dread and anguish. Most of this story is about the perceived threat of the aliens. We dont see them do much damage on panel. Pasarin is good at hinting at stuff that occurs off page and creates dread. Read Full Review

    Overall, this is definitely a high quality series with a lot of bang for your buck. The writing and art compliment each other immensely, the character's are the focus and the villain's are formidable, interesting and well-designed. The overall tone and feel to the story is great for any reader interested in the Corps' concept, and new readers will surely be impressed. Read Full Review

    Fernando Pasarin's ability to draw evil ninjas and formidable corps members is strong, so it is a delightful surprise to see he is equally adept at drawing innocent creatures on alien worlds. Innocent and cute! I thought last issue's blue toothy manatee people were unparalleled in their adorableness, but here he shows off a new race that looks like a cross between your favorite puppy and a fuzzy chipmunk, which makes it that much more sad when they come under attack. He has developed a great visual style with many different elements, yet they all work together to create a nuanced universe of seemingly infinite possibilities. Read Full Review

    Examiner - Phillip Martinez Oct 24, 2011

    Overall GLC #2 is a very entertaining book with chock loads of action and character moments. This new enemy is very intriguing and it will be interesting to see how they and the Corps are related. This book should be on your pull-list every month as it gives Green Lantern a run for its money. Read Full Review

    Green Lantern Corps continues to be a fantastic book with Pete Tomasi at the helm.  Like the main Green Lantern title I finish each issue wishing it were longer and dreading the wait until we get the next chapter.  In my mind both these titles are the cream of the crop of DC's cosmic titles and my two favorite books overall, just above Batman, Batgirl and Aquaman.  Four out of five lanterns.
