    The first part of this new arc was not received well here at IGN, but fortunately, the next installment surprises with some very interesting and relevant developments. Read Full Review

    There are a ton of these short, throw-away stories going on as DC moves into Convergence, but what GREEN LANTERN CORPS offers is a cool story that gives these characters some more development and humanizes them. Here, they're less "space cops" and more caring beings the reader can sympathize with. The Daggle parts of the story were alright, but the star of the show is John and Feska's story, along with the amazing art. It's going to be sad to see this book go, but at least we get one more issue. Read Full Review

    Green Lantern Corps #39 is a solid story that is building toward a very strong conclusion for this volume of GLC. This is a classic John Stewart story that gives readers some great story time with John's band of ring slingers and I will be back for issue #40 with bells on. Jensen, Chang and Maiolo are a great Green Lantern team and issues like this showcase why. Read Full Review

    Green Lantern Corps #39 sets the stage for the series finale and Van Jensen isn't taking any shortcuts at this stage of the game.  While I didn't find the threat on Feska's homeworld to be engaging the horror vibe and the action make the issue an entertaining one.  For me the strength of the issue came from the "b plot" where we get new details that add a new element to a revered piece of Green Lantern lore.  The art team also turns in a wonderful effort in what amounts to a solid issue.  Four out of five lanterns.

    I was really happy with how this issue turned out, especially since I wasn't a huge fan of it's first chapter last month and while I'm a bit confused by what the cliffhanger suggests, this was a vibrant and fun issue to read.  The stakes are getting higher for our Lantern heroes as they fight towards their final issue next month and with this issue's hype, I hope it's something really special.  While I dug the writing and art in this book, it's really the color work by Marcelo Maiolo that shined brighter than everyone else and I hope to see more like it next month.

    Ultimately, what sells this book is that Chang and Maiolo make this book look energetic and expressive, and that's a good sign in a week that's otherwise weak of a lot of compelling comic book offerings. Read Full Review

    Bernard Chang once again continues to excel with his fun action sequences and in this issue in particular and great use of shadows for certain panels in the issue. His ability to convey emotions with characters was a nice treat and a great example was at the graveyard in Feska's mother. The way Chang rendered his expression and body language made him seem genuinely depressed because of his teammates loss. Proving that art and not just the writing can progress a characters development. Read Full Review
