    This story is turning out a lot better than I initially thought. Full of action and great art, it seems that the world of Green Lantern is in good hands after the Geoff Johns era. So pick this one up and continue to follow this story. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Oct 16, 2013

    Oh New Guardians never fails to be a great book.  With so many Lantern titles you might just be asking yourself "What book should I get into?"  Well the answer of course is this one.  I was a little iffy on the whole Lights Out storyline, but after reading this issue, I'm firmly back on board.  Excellent art, and story telling, nothing really at all to say bad about this book.  But since it's a Kyle-centric book you might not feel the size of the other Lantern titles here, but what you do get is a great character that continues to delight.

    Nerds On The Rocks - Josh Raj Oct 16, 2013

    Overall, this issue doesn't do much to move the story very far forward, but it is a satisfying calm before the storm. Seeing Hal in control of the Corps continues to be exciting, while the interactions with the new guardians and Kyle keeps getting more interesting. Where Kyle and the new guardians end up after this story will be exciting. Read Full Review

    Brad Walker. His pencils are insane. He uses every single inch of every single panel. He clutters the pages without allowing the page to feel cluttered. His line work is strong, as are his faces and forms, but his detail work is the real gut punch. Walker uses the panels and their placement very cinematically. The book sweeps with motion and excitement. It’s a seriously visceral slice of comic book art. Walker is to be commended. Read Full Review

    Blog Of Oa - Myron Rumsey Oct 21, 2013

    While Green Lantern: New Guardians #24 doesn't seem to push the story along very far it provides enough pause in the action to allow the reader to really digest what's gone on so far and let the realization of the loss of the Blue Lanterns and Oa sink in.  Four out of five lanterns.

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Noah Sharma Oct 22, 2013

    New Guardians #24 does a pretty great job of naturally setting up the end of this event and provides a lovely Kyle Rayner story in the process. Though certain characters' voices are notably stronger than others, artistic innovation and a sense of scope that's been sorely missing make this far more than the standard tie-in. Read Full Review

    Population Go - Sam Hawkins Oct 22, 2013

    Overall, this another strong issue of Green Lantern: New Guardians. Jordan does a great job of both progressing the "Lights Out" storyline, whilst also continuing to make this a book about Kyle Rayner's new role as the White Lantern. One thing does seem certain however: the chaos surrounding the Green Lantern Corps won't end following the conclusion of "Lights Out"! Read Full Review

    Green Lantern Corps - iggy Oct 16, 2013

    Overall Green Lantern New Guardians #24 was a solid issue from the story that adds more spice to a already hot plate, and it seems that Lights Out is heading towards a very interesting conclusion. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Ed Oct 18, 2013

    I really have enjoyed this title recently and it is tough to really think of this as New Guardians story and not a Green Lantern story. It is still enjoyable as an issue and lets face it if you are a Green Lantern fan at all you are going to be reading Lights Out. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Oct 19, 2013

    The story with the Entities is very, very random. They hijack the comic but don't really add much to the overall narrative. They simply distract from the destruction of Oa, which should be getting more focus. This should be a huge deal for the Green Lanterns, but instead everyone is taking this all very much in stride and are simply moving on to the next part of the story. I really do think Lights Out is just an excuse to quickly and haphazardly change the franchise however the new writers want without much concern for anything else. Read Full Review

    Comics Crux - Cal Cleary Oct 18, 2013

    I'm not really sure what to think about "Lights Out" thus far, which still seems to be trying to sell me the core idea of the series. The basic premise is solid. Relic is a villain with some potential. And yet, thus far "Lights Out" has managed to feel both staggeringly padded and weirdly bloated, its massive scope masking the fact that not much has really happened. That would be forgivable if we got a stronger sense of character than we have so far, or a little more thematic heft, but neither is really occurring. Green Lantern: New Guardians #24 is a small step up from last week'sGreen Lantern Corps and a sizable leap ahead ofGreen Lantern, but "Lights Out" just is not coming together in any meaningful way.

    It would be nice to see this creative team do something other than a crossover. Jordan and Walker is a nice team up with a ton of talent. Lets hope they get the chance to get the New Guardians back together, since it is the title of the book and all. Read Full Review
