    Following The Nerd - Christopher Williams Dec 26, 2012

    The art delivers on all fronts in this issue and finally works for me. Before this issue the art had been severely lacking as much as the story had been, but this issue was a real turn around with both aspects. Overall this was a great issue and possibly one of my favorite single issues of the year. The movement of the Third Army story arc has been quite slow and Bedard really pushes it forward here with a huge nudge. I wish this book had been delivering this much before, but better late than never. All I can say is please keep delivering like this and New Guardians may turn into one of the best books on the shelf. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Dec 22, 2012

    Larfleeze is very entertaining in this issue, with some truly wicked art. Kuder has his own unique twist on Larfleeze's bizarre appearance, and it definitely works. Kuder also has a lot of fun showcasing the Orange Light and all the evil Orange ghost constructs. Kuder definitely has a lot of fun with the different Lantern powers. The story itself still feels a little rushed. Kyle is learning these different Lantern powers at warp speed, and everybody is pretty calm with the idea that Kyle can just turn the powers off and on at will now. But at least Kyle, Carol and Arkillo make for a fun team, and no doubt adding Larfleeze to the mix will be a hoot. Sayd's noble sacrifice was pretty cool, as was the epilogue where the other Guardians (including her lover, Ganthet) watch her die at the hands of their Third Army. That should lead to some promising stories still to come. Read Full Review

    New Guardians continues an unfortunate trend of over simplifying what should be a much more powerful story in order to work itself into an editorially mandated timeline.  Despite the fresh new artistic outlook the stunted story telling and a major continuity contradiction lessens what would normally be an above average issue.  Three out of five lanterns.

    Worse, Kyle's supporting cast exists only to further his bland agenda. Carol Ferris usually cannot be bothered to put on her ring yet is somehow now an expert on mastering different emotional powers, while the stubborn Larfleeze folds like a bad poker hand to the needs of Kyle's mission. The only meaningful character interaction comes at the end, and while I did care about what happened, it was only because of how those characters were written long before Green Lantern: New Guardians was a series.
