    Adequate issue. I would have liked to have seen this story spread out over two issues, rather than rushed through just this one, and with only one artist doing the chores. Read Full Review

    Following The Nerd - Christopher Williams Nov 23, 2012

    I'm really wondering where the Zamaron/Guardian team up is heading. We all know they both came from the same race of people, but the Zamarons left for a reason and I really don't see what they stand to gain here by joning the Guardians except stabbed in the back. The art here does stand up a little better then last issue and works better in the confines of the story. Last issue there were too many Earth scenes which didn't play well with the art of the New Guardians, I want those intergalactic adventures, and this time we got that, with some nic scenes in space, Vorn and Zamaron. While this book still isn't as strong as I'd like it to be, this month was definitely an improvement over last month. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Nov 24, 2012

    Somehow, the idea of Kyle Raynor meeting with all the various VIP Lanterns and learning their powers is just boring. Perhaps because it's too easy. Kyle spends a little time with each one and he learns their power almost immediately. There is little time or effort involved. Kyle himself doesn't get much personality, since he spends all his time just jumping from one Lantern color to the next. And Arkillo and Indigo-1 don't do anything very interesting either. Only Carol Ferris has any real excitement in her plot, as she is pulled into the Zamaron's trickery. All in all, this series has just gotten very dull, and I wish that wasn't the case at all.

    I feel like this story has absolutely nothing to do with the Rise of the third army event. The only reason why this story even ties in is because of Ganthet and thats a stretch. The lack of the third army actually being in this book really puts a bad taste in my mouth. I would much rather these books not have the Third Army tag on it. Even though we have not seen the third army in this series yet I am sure they will show up eventually. Read Full Review

    Green Lantern: New Guardians is the book that I think is struggling the most with infusing the Third Army story into its pages. When left to its own devices this series has been one of my favorites and these past two issues in my opinion have not compared well with what has come before. Between some really bad art and rushing the plot for the sake of the greater narrative this issue ends up being just and average book when it really deserves so much more. Three out of five lanterns.

    The Comic Book Revue - Jay Mattson Nov 24, 2012

    Tony Bedard is losing his grip on Green Lantern: New Guardians issue by issue. Maybe he's putting more effort into his other series, but Kyle Rayner and his Rainbow Brigade have suffered for it exponentially. Each month now, I feel like the series is getting worse, and that's upsetting. Kyle Rayner has always been my favorite Green Lantern. I've come to accept that fans and editors alike don't seem to want Kyle in the spotlight, but to reduce him to some confused epic hero who's journey isn't all that hard is just depressing.
