    Edge of Oblivion came out of nowhere this week and blew me away with how great all of our Lanterns feel in this issue.  We've got drama, comedy and sci fi action adventure all thrown at us here and it's fantastic in all its elements, especially the portrayal of Guy Gardner.  With an excellent story and art that looks great throughout the issue, this is the Edge of Oblivion that you've been waiting for.

    Green Lantern Corps: Edge of Oblivion #5 is a quick read but it's filled with all the great action and adventure that the story calls for at this stage of the game.  Tom Taylor reveals the true face of the Blackest Knights in an issue where Guy Gardner's tragic past in channeled into his greatest strength, and Ardian Syaf makes it all look fantastic.  Four out of five lanterns.

    Unsurprisingly, Green Lantern Corps: Edge of Oblivion isn't quite as strong in the wake of Ethan Van Sciver's departure and the visual shakeup that's occurred as a result. This issue has moments of epic visual spectacle, but also cases where the clash between art styles proves distracting. Luckily, there's still plenty to love in Tom Taylor's handling of the Lantern crew and the epic conflict they face as the end of the universe looms. Read Full Review

    Man, when you took Ethan Van Sciver out of a book ... it is really noticeable. That's not meant as a dig, but it's distracting. I'm excited for Rebirth and what it does for DC, but us every week readers are feeling the effects of scrambled creative teams and arc finales. Read Full Review

    Edge of Oblivion remains consistent in being a fun Green Lantern story, but the inconsistent art hurt the story. Even though the ending is all but predictable I'm still invested enough to see how Taylor wraps up this mini series. Read Full Review
