It's the stunning conclusion to the war between the Corps and their new nemeses, the Keepers! Now that we know a GL power ring isn't the most effective weapon against them, Guy and John take the battle to the Keepers' front doorwithout their rings! Not everyone will make it home in one piece.

    As I mentioned earlier, it's been great learning about Green Lanterns other than Guy Gardner, John Stewart and Kilowog. Bringing in the 'Mean Machine' and including some of the better characters from past series - such as Sheriff Mardin, Hannu, and Brik - has been Green Lantern Corps'saving grace. I'm excited to see where Tomasi takes the series after next month's issue. Read Full Review

    While the story takes a few logistics for granted, that does nothing to undermine its overall integrity. You can't really beat solid plotting, character work, and art. Read Full Review

    I feel like I'm assured a good story when I pick up an issue of Green Lantern Corps. The consistency in the tone is what sells the book, and the visuals make it great to look at. I look forward to see the ripple effects of John's choice, and the ways in which Tomasi uses it in the story. The tone " of brotherhood, valor, and honor " has been unwavering since this series started, and while Hal Jordan gets his own book, Green Lantern Corps has been great at using the "other lanterns" in ways that show their importance as well.

    The war with the Keepers is over for now and this first arc comes to a close with our protagonists shaken but not fallen.  While I don't think that the ending had the epic feel I'd hoped for, the story was certainly not a let down overall.  This issue has all the action that one would expect from a book that has been described as a cosmic war comic.  Luckily for us the Keepers are left on the playing field for use by writers in the future as is fitting for characters which further define some of the modern interpretation of concepts that make up Green Lantern's mythology.  Four out of five lanterns.

    Tomasi's writing provides a solid story that is fun for the entire 32 pages. Read Full Review

    While the story struggles a little, Fernando Pasarins artwork helps. He throws down some great action scenes, images of the Lanterns being completely overwhelmed by their adversaries, struggling to stay alive. Visually, the book is firing well. Story-wise, Tomasi needs to tighten things up a bit in the next story arc. Read Full Review

    IGN - Joshua Yehl Feb 15, 2012

    Fernando Pasarin delivers in a big way with the extended battle scene. There is so much going on that it makes the reader feel stuck right in the middle of the fight with bullets, energy swords, and body parts flying everywhere. One continuity error caught my eye: in the first battle splash page, Bronchuk has a construct-arm, but his real arm does not get cut off until the next page. This does not make or break the issue, but it adds to the aforementioned problem of this issue feeling messier than it should. Read Full Review

    A major misfire (pun intended). Lanterns using automatic weapons, killing people? Did Marvel buy this series out? I expect much better. Read Full Review
