    With everything going on in this series and how it was tied into so many other events in the Green Lantern universe, it was safe to say fans had event fatigue from the past couple of years. What GREEN LANTERN CORPS #38 does well is break that fatigue and give readers something a bit more grounded. Van Jensen is setting up something dipped more in horror and lore than anything else and it feels like a science fiction story rather than a super-hero book, which is a fantastic way to get readers excited for this series again. This may be a two or three issue story, but if you've enjoyed any of the Green Lantern books in the past, you're going to want to pick this one up. Read Full Review

    Green Lantern Corps #38 is a solid issue that narrows the focus of the title back down to one human Lantern and a merry band of recruits we've grown to know pretty well over the past year+. Jensen writes them well, and the art team delivers some really steady visuals throughout to keep the issue interesting. I'll be back next month without a doubt. Read Full Review

    This could have been a fun opportunity to explore life on Mogo or what the Lanterns are doing to rebuild after their devastating attack, but instead we got a story that feels, unfortunately, a bit thrown together. Read Full Review

    While this issue is entertaining and it's exciting to see John Stewart get back into action in something that isn't a crossover epic,  This issue seems to fall short from the grand new status quo of the Corps that I was hoping for.  It's right back to action here and maybe I just have to give it some time but right now the villains are a weird bunch who I don't fully understand the extent of but I hope it all becomes clear and I can get fully on the Green Lantern Corps train again.  Right now though, I have to wait and see what comes next.

    The second half of the book picks up with John leading a team to help Lantern Feska's planet. I did enjoy Van Jensen starting this storyline out as a simple ridding the planet of all crime but in fact a much deeper problem persists. Since not much is known it brings a level of suspense to the reader that is so far and few between in today's superhero comics. Bernard Chang returns in his full glory in this issue and I adored his rendering of the city slums, and his great action pages are complimented with a sentimental reunion of Feska and her son, showing his progression as an artist. His storytelling remains top notch and his final page is a great example of using shadows, in a way it is a visual representation of the calm before the storm. Read Full Review

    Blog Of Oa - Myron Rumsey Jan 15, 2015

    Green Lantern Corps #38 passes up the opportunity of exploring where GodHead leaves characters like Saint Walker in favor of plunging John Stewart into a new conflict while reminding us of a dangling plot thread from the past.  The resulting script seems haphazard and I'm left feeling like the series is being rushed forward with another conflict rather than providing the characters and readers with a character driven issue that showed the impact of recent events.  Visually the book suffers from two art styles that don't mesh well and a few major mistakes that really should have been caught by editorial.  Two out of five lanterns.
