    IGN - Apr 27, 2011

    I didn't dislike Green Lantern: Emerald Warriors #9 by any means, I just had problems with it that are more inherent to the crossover itself than this particular issue. Things like John Stewart's strange purple military fatigues and the problems mentioned earlier take away from a good action driven story with some great artwork from Fernando Pasarin, Cam Smith and Gabe Eltaeb. If you've been enjoying the series thus far, you'll enjoy this issue as well. As for me, I'm not totally sold on the War of the Green Lanterns, and as such I'm actually more interested to see what this story does to the GLC status quo after it's finished more so than the next four issues of crossover.

    Green Lantern Emerald Warriors #9 showed an improvement over the previous three chapters, but it still fell under the same problems of its predecessors. Peter Tomasi does his best to move the plot along as quickly as possible but he fails to take advantage of what happens to the characters wearing different rings. The story also continues to lack that grand scale that a cosmic epic should have. Instead the story feels more like a street level event than a cosmic event. Hopefully, now that War of the Green Lanterns has past the halfway point things can turn around and we will get a story that improves on its many faults. Read Full Review

    Blog Of Oa - Myron Rumsey May 5, 2011

    This issue propels the story along and starts to tie together some of the subplots back into the main story. While no necessarily answering any of the questions that readers have this issue gives us just enough to keep those things in the forefront of our minds and wanting to know the answers. Uneven art aside, this was a good issue earning three out of five lanterns. Read Full Review

    "War of the Green Lanterns" continues to disappoint, a phrase I'd have found unthinkable a year ago. A strong third act could help matters, but all in all this is not the storyline that seems like a strong lead-up to the "Green Lantern" film this year. Wherever all of these books' energy has gone, someone needs to find it and quickly. Read Full Review
