Things go from bad to worse as Guy Gardner and John Stewart's squad of Green Lanterns is vastly outnumbered by the Intruders, a force that knows how to neutralize any green ring's power. And these invaders have made it abundantly clear: this is personal.

    The Fandom Post - Chris Kirby Nov 17, 2011

    With artwork that really moves the piece along, suspense ratcheting up and up as the battle rages with no certain terms, the GLC remains top tier. It's important to balance story and action but that doesn't mean you have to balance them within a single issue. That is where some comics flounder. With a gradual mix and knowing when to go full boar into either action or story, GLC is pure entertainment that doesn't make the reader feel stupid or cheated. Better and better with each issue…it's time to join the Corps. Read Full Review

    They are up against an unknown enemy dubbed “The Ring Slayer” on the cover. These slayers are immune to anything the green power rings can dish out and Lanterns are being lost by the minute. The slayers weapon of choice is a green light saber except the blade is shaped as a machete. I think it's poetic that these slayers used this weapon since, well, it's green. The ending will make you come back for the next issue and you also have to wonder if the Slayers are the “third option” the Guardians talked about in the last Guardians book? Read Full Review

    Issue three of Green Lantern Corps is all out war from cover to cover, only pausing to advance the plot of the story for a few panel before jumping back into the action.  If you're not already reading this title this is not the issue to start with unless you really want to jump right into the action without knowing what's really going on.  Despite average artwork and a plot contrivance this issue provides a lot of adrenaline rushing action and deserves four out of five lanterns.

    It is odd that you have to look to the Green Lantern franchise for DC's red-blooded war stories. Read Full Review

    The Green Lantern side of the DC Universe is, without a doubt, the weakest side of the DC reboot. I can't put my finger on it, but there's something happening that just isn't meeting the quality coming from the other rebooted titles. However, with that said, There's still a lot great potential for the future of Green Lantern. I'll stick with it! Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Minhquan Nguyen Nov 17, 2011

    In contrast to the explosive and electric events of last issue, this one seems more mindless and repetitive, though it flows well. A step down in art doesn't help either. Read Full Review

    IGN - Joshua Yehl Nov 16, 2011

    Guest artist Geraldo Borges does a fine job of taking over pencil duties from Fernando Pasarin, although he does lack some of Pasarin's smooth character work. A treat of the GLC title has always been getting to see strange and wondrous new Lanterns, and here Borges does not disappoint. There is one that looks like a dragon, another that could be The Fly, and – my favorite – one that is nothing more than a ball of fire with the GL logo shimmering within its gaseous form. Tomasi did promise lots of action, and he certainly has delivered, but it feels like too much. Dialing back the action would be a welcome change, at least long enough to introduce that fire-Lantern properly. Read Full Review
