    It's the art holding me back from raving over this one, and this is a major story for Kyle. Read Full Review

    Although not a strong inclusion into the Rise of the Third Army crossover, I have a feeling it will tie-in much more strongly soon. This is a strong encapsulated story as well, and although you dont have to have a background in this title or with Kyle Rayners past, you will enjoy the issue that much more if you do.

    The Comic Book Revue - Jay Mattson Oct 17, 2012

    I have to say, Kyle's Red Lantern getup is probably the coolest costume he's worn in his many years wielding a green ring - it's that helmet that really dredges up thoughts of horror movies, y'know? Tony Bedard, in one single issue, has managed to reel me back in and take Green Lantern: New Guardians seriously again. I'm a bit miffed that Carol Ferris is taking Fatality's place as the team's Star Sapphire, but it makes sense in terms of GL family cohesion. Other than that, I really don't have a lot bad to say about this issue. Bedard knocks it out of the park, Andrei Bressan and Amilcar Pinna have a refreshing art style, and the new, clear direction for the book makes me want to continue reading it even more.

    Artist Aaron Kuder did an excellent job on Green Lantern: The New Guardians #0, so it's a shame that he did not draw this one, too. That said, Andrei Bressan and Amilcar Pinna do a solid job in their own right, especially during Kyle's transformation scene. While the book does at times look inconsistent between their two styles, the book retains the lighter, more streamlined appearance that Kuder lent to the series. Every book in the Green Lantern family has a wildly different looking design for Atrocitus. Here he looks like a Muppet with teeth. Read Full Review

    Blog Of Oa - Myron Rumsey Oct 21, 2012

    Kyle's journey through the emotional spectrum takes center stage as it should and writer Tony Bedard smartly shrinks the cast of the book to maximize the amount of panel time that can be spent on a story which is being rushed to fit into the greater Green Lantern universe'stime-frame. What results is something that feels rushed rather than being an interesting dialogue about how people learn to control the emotions we all have brewing underneath our skin. The largely lackluster art doesn't serve the story for the most part and hinders the book more than helps it. Three out of five lanterns. Read Full Review

    Following The Nerd - Christopher Williams Oct 22, 2012

    I'm really hoping that the next issue steps it up more. This book hasn't been the best of the New52, but it has been fun at least. I understand with the rise of the Third Army everything is more serious, but the tone of this issue is not what the New Guardians have been about. Read Full Review
