The fiery religion of the goddess X'Hal has brought peace to a star system that has only known conflict! Could this be the galactic paradise that Kyle Rayner and the New Guardians have been searching for? If it is, it won't last long - because the mysterious beings known as The God-Killers have X'Hal - and Kyle - in their sights!

    Comic Vine - Corey 'Undeadpool' Schroeder Feb 19, 2014

    This issue is a great jumping-on point and a great example of why this book needs to exist. The DCU is so much cheerier and more expansive with exploratory titles like this that dont have to tie into giant, megalithic continuities and has some space to breathe and establish itself and its tone. This book does that well and this issue shows exactly how it does what it does. Ive also loved the shorter two-issue arcs as they help the book stay fresh while enticing new readers.

    Im not ready to say yet that this will be the most original arc, but by the end of the issue I was certainly happier than the beginning gave me any hope of being. And if nothing else, New Guardians does continue to benefit from its separation from the rest of the Lantern titles. Thank the Gods for no one being supposed to know Kyle Rayner is alive.

    Green Lantern Corps - iggy Feb 19, 2014

    Overall this was yet another great issue of Green Lantern New Guardians, putting Kyle in interesting situations with some fun dialog and explosive action sequences. The only minus would the be the small info dump but that doesn't cripple this issue. Read Full Review

    Blog Of Oa - Myron Rumsey Mar 2, 2014

    With Justin Jordan putting the Kyle/Carol relationship on the back burner for this issue Green Lantern: New Guardians #28 poses some thought provoking ideas if you want to look for them but serves just as well as the set up for a great sci-fi action adventure romp.  Four out of five lanterns.

    Multiversity Comics - Brian Salvatore Feb 21, 2014

    The arc this issue kicks off deals with characters called Godkillers going after local deities, and seems like a good fit for the book which can, at times, feel a bit rudderless. There's a fun to be had in a book that is freewheelin' and roaming the furthest reaches of the universe, but putting a little giddy-up in its step isn't a bad thing, either. Read Full Review

    IGN - Mike Logsdon Feb 20, 2014

    Brad Walker continues to impress with his clarity of action, and his realistic yet slightly exaggerated style. Everything from his panel layouts to his attention to detail really help to sell the continuing adventures of the New Guardians. Read Full Review

    Nerds On The Rocks - Josh Raj Feb 19, 2014

    Overall, Green Lantern: New Guardians #28 sets up for a new story which hopefully can bring something new to the table and stop dealing with the same type of stories we have seen the last several months. More background on the new guardians and what their overall motive would be nice as well. Read Full Review

    Population Go - Sam Hawkins Mar 19, 2014

    Overall this is a decent issue, if somewhat forgettable. Jordan nicely sets up the clash between the Godkillers and the God of the Light and the Fire " with Kyle, Carol and the new Guardians set to be caught right in the middle of it. Hopefully the next issue will deliver something notable to really spark some fresh life into this title. Read Full Review
