    As much as I actually wound up enjoying Lights Out, Im glad to see everyone getting back to what they do best, especially in Kyles case where what he does best is be amazed by new and strange things. Hes the perfect character to be exploring the wild, bizarre aspects of the universe and this is one helluvan introductory adventure to send him out on. Im excited to see where it takes him and Im absolutely thrilled to see that Carol Ferris is along for the ride. Read Full Review

    I wanted to see Kyle and the Guardians bop about the galaxy on tales involving exploration and discovery, and it seems my hopes have been answered. This was a solid read with two nice surprises. Read Full Review

    A clever premise, a solid handle on Kyle's voice, and lovely art make this a great place to jump onto the adventures of my favorite Lantern. Read Full Review

    Blog Of Oa - Myron Rumsey Dec 17, 2013

    All in all issue twenty five is a fun read, playing to the science fiction element of the Green Lantern mythos and using the revelations about the emotional spectrum to drive the cast to explore strange new worlds as it were.  Four out of five lanterns. Read Full Review

    So with all that Kyle is presented, he still disagree's with what is being done but before some aliens from the same planet but on a different time line have shown up, proclaiming they want their future back. So overall this issue was a good read. It has a nice character development between Kyle and Carol, combined with new direction and tone for this book. Walker continues to impress with each issue, while he didn't start off mediocre but it's nice to see an artist start from being a good artist to becoming a great artist. Keep your eyes on Brad Walker folks. Read Full Review

    IGN - Joshua Yehl Nov 20, 2013

    Regular series artist Brad Walker is joined by Geraldo Borges, but their styles are so in sync with one another that I didn't even notice there were two artists until I checked the credits. In a world where art consistency is often sacrificed to meet deadlines, this is a true blessing. The alien architecture is fascinating with its shining peaks and long-stretching walkways, although the best part of the comic has to be the light-hearted facial expressions exchanged during moments of humor (of which this issue has many).

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Nov 26, 2013

    While I'm happy that we can finally get New Guardians back tie-in free, I found this beginning just a tad bit confusing.  While I eventually got what they were selling it took a couple reads.  Now I know that sounds a bit lazy, and maybe it is, I just expected something dealing with what Kyle went through in Lights Out to be more prevalent.  But with bitching aside, I did enjoy what I was given, and will continue to read.  I have complete faith in Justin Jordan to wow me, and I don't think he'll disappoint.  So go check it out, and read it twice if you're slow like me.

    Population Go - Sam Hawkins Dec 8, 2013

    It may take a little while to get going, but this is definitely a good start to life post-"Lights Out" for Green Lantern: New Guardians. The new direction of Kyle Rayner, Carol Ferris and the Guardians following the struggle against Relic makes sense, and the mystery of Exuras is certainly an intriguing story to open with.

    All-Comic - Jeremy Matcho Nov 20, 2013

    Green Lantern New Guardians seems like it is back on track for some good old-fashioned sci-fi fun. Jordan excels when he is able to take his time and put together well thought out stories and Brad Walker improves with every issue. This is a smarter book than people give it credit for and is absolutely worth a read. Read Full Review
