    Why can't every book be as good as Green Lantern Corps? This is what every hero book aspires to be. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Feb 13, 2014

    Van Jensen has made Green Lantern Corps the book with "character".  He has taken a book that was being crushed by the shadow of the main Green Lantern title and turned it into something unique and viable on it's own.  This issue not only puts an exclamation point on that, but turns the whole Lantern Universe on it's head.  Bernard Chang's art fits the wild alien characters and worlds that make up the Corps and a couple panels aside, I loved it.  Highly recommended.

    Green Lantern Corps - iggy Feb 12, 2014

    This was yet another solid issue for Green Lantern Corps, the only minor nitpick being is that the new recruits only received a page. A well done page, and it's understandable due to sheer size this book covers. Read Full Review

    Nerds On The Rocks - Josh Raj Feb 12, 2014

    Overall, Green Lantern Corps #28 took a step back from the focus on John and it really helped open up the universe a bit more. Hopefully they can keep focusing on other members of the corps and develop some of the new lanterns as well. The art continues to get better each and every issue and really adds to how impressive the book can be. The pieces for the war keep moving in place and the emergence of another foe will make things way more interesting for the lanterns. Read Full Review

    Once again, things continue to heat up for the Green Lantern Corps. The reveal on the last page nearly had me crapping my pants! I think, considering a certain solicitation for a new Lantern book, we have a pretty good idea of what this means. Alright, I'll just say it. The Sinestro Corps is back, people! Fear hath returned.

    Bernard Chang continues to provide his somewhat exaggerated and cartoony style to the proceedings, which works perfectly in a book filled with a variety of aliens. Additionally, his livelier style helps to bring home the fact that this book is as much about personality as it about anything else. Read Full Review

    Blog Of Oa - Myron Rumsey Feb 18, 2014

    Green Lantern Corps continues to be a solid read and this issue continues to follow the trend. Van Jensen has a solid grasp of the characters he's shepherding and Bernard Chang's art helps bring Jensen's scripts to life. If only Chang would get his version of Kilowog more on model rather than the way he continues to draw him.  With some fun action sequences and a great surprise ending Green Lantern Corps #28 gets four out of five lanterns.

    Comic Vine - Corey 'Undeadpool' Schroeder Feb 12, 2014

    This book is just plain great. Its got more of a personal touch than the core Corps book (see what I did there?), despite its larger cast, and I feel like were getting to know these characters, both old and new, very well. The whole notion of recruiting Sciencell prisoners on a kind of parole is an absolutely fantastic one. Ive always been a fan of siege stories or stories where the central characters are under attack, and this one has not disappointed. Read Full Review

    All the soap opera and various alien species of Green Lantern Corps may be enough to dissuade casual readers, but those who like their sci-fi extra wonky will have a lot to enjoy with Van Jensen and Bernard Chang's book. Read Full Review
