    This is what I've been waiting for and I'm so glad DC got around to doing it! A self-contained comic! More of this, please! Read Full Review

    Green Lantern Corps - iggy Jan 22, 2014

    This issue was a lot a fun, as it's still continuing that sci fi tone which is a bonus. Exeter is nice addition to this book and hopefully Jordan brings him back somewhere down the road. The nicest surprise was Andre Bressan on art and how good the art is. Hopefully Bressan will be called on when Walker needs a break. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Tyler Goulet Jan 22, 2014

    New Guardians stands out as one of the best, if not arguably the best, Lantern book on the shelves right now. Its fun, its interesting and it doesnt seem to be tied down by all the weight and seriousness that some of the other titles have. It might help that the rest of the Corps think Rayner sacrificed himself to replenish the light and therefore he doesnt have to answer to anybody but himself, the Guardians and maybe Carol Ferris who hes dragged along for the ride, but who can really say? In any event, this is definitely a book you need to catch up on if you've fallen behind. Jordan, Brad Walker, Hi-Fi, Bressan and anybody else that has worked on this series since the creator change have done an excellent job with this series and it deserves your attention.

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Noah Sharma Jan 26, 2014

    If this title can continue to tell engaging episodic sci-fi yarns the way it has over the past three issues, I expect that you'll start hearing a lot more about New Guardians in the coming days. Read Full Review

    Andrei Bressan fills in for Brad Walker this month. The art is serviceable, but rarely stands out in any way. Bressan conveys the action-oriented scenes well enough. It's the more dialogue-driven fare that suffers from dull facial work and sometimes bizarrely proportioned figures. The visuals get the job done for this one-off issue, but a return to normalcy next month won't be a bad thing. Read Full Review

    For a one shot this was a good time, we were reintroduced to what I thought was a one off characters like Exeter, The Keeper who was fun and I hope we see more of him.  But what I'm really hoping for is to see this series next story arc The God Killers, and see what Jordan has planned for the long haul on New Guardians.  So this was a one shot, it was fun, you should get it and enjoy all the Kyle Rayner you can.

    Population Go - Sam Hawkins Feb 17, 2014

    This was another decent issue of Green Lantern: New Guardians. Kyle and Carol's relationship progressed a little bit, and overall, the reappearance of Exeter was entertaining. Howeve,r there still is a sense of this title rather going through the motions at the moment, trying to find its place following "Lights Out." Here's the hoping the next storyline has a little more weight. Read Full Review

    Nerds On The Rocks - Josh Raj Jan 22, 2014

    Overall, Green Lantern New Guardians #27 needs to move away from the “Freak of the Month” it has been doing lately. With such beautiful art it can be tough to see it hurt with a mediocre story. New guardians needs to find a path for Kyle that will allow him to live up to the potential he has. Read Full Review

    Blog Of Oa - Myron Rumsey Feb 12, 2014

    While Brad Walker provides this issue's cover, it's Andrei Bressan who provide the interiors and for the most part the issue looks pretty darn good other than Carol's hair taking on a life of its own.  All is all a good issue if unremarkable in the grand scheme of things.  Three out of five lanterns.

    Kyle Rayner is wielding the most powerful of most powerful weapons in the universe. Through Blackest Night, Geoff Johns built up the White Ring as all-encompassing ring " the one that can channel all of the emotional spectrum. So why is its wearer relegated to such a supplicant position? I get that Kyle is still learning how to wield the ring, but his trials in learning to harness the power of the White Ring should at least be entertaining, and nowhere near as banal.
