The powerful God-Killers are coming for the Tamaranean goddess XHal but shes taken a VERY strong interest in Kyle Rayner! But is her dark side too much for Kyle to bear?

    I rarely give out a five lantern review and usually reserve them for the issues which have a huge scale and impact on the mythology alongside being exemplars of the best the medium has to offer. But I find that other than a totally misleading cover this issue is just so well done that it deserves my highest rating despite not being some major event. Five out of five lanterns.

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

    This is a story arc worthy of greater focus than the others have had, and it seems like were going to see a great deal more of this planet and the factions that inhabit it. This is a good thing as I was enjoying the planet hopping couple of issues, but am definitely not against a more complex, nuanced story that needs a little room to breathe. I dont know what will happen in the issues to come, nor how long this storyline will last, but I know that Im definitely invested in its cast of characters. Read Full Review

    A New Guardians' tale that goes into unexpected territory by exploring a mature, moral question. Having excellent visuals only increases the fire of this story. Well done. Read Full Review

    With each issue my hopes for this story only get higher. Admittedly there hasnt been anything about this story that screams out for it having to be a Kyle Rayner story rather than any other character or any other universe. But thats not a knock, that it just feels like a good story and not specifically a good superhero story is probably a statement on the quality of the writing. I look forward to seeing where things go next issue. Read Full Review

    Brad Walker continues to do justice to this title. His characters always look true to form, but his layouts are what tend to steal the show. Walker uses a lively mix of panels of all shapes and sizes along with splash pages where appropriate. There are times when characters and even story beats are literally exploding out of panels resulting in an always eye-pleasing product. Read Full Review

    New Guardians has certainly taken a step away from the normal kind of Lantern story, but that isn't a bad thing.  Jordan is throwing at us story after story about opinions on right and wrong, morality, and what one generally should and shouldn't do with power, and I'm really digging it.  God Killers is an excellent story so far, and I'm really interested to see where it will go.  Check it out.

    Infinite Comix - Jay Mattson Mar 24, 2014

    Green Lantern: New Guardians #29 is a fun issue. After all the Relic shenanigans (maybe a harsher word than shenanigans), New Guardians hasn't been tied into what's going on in the main two GL titles, which frees Kyle to be a better character than he's been in a long time. Justin Jordan deserves a lot of the credit for bringing Kyle from being a Hal Jordan sidekick, back to his roots as a Lantern that carves his own path. Read Full Review

    Green Lantern Corps - iggy Mar 20, 2014

    This issue of New Guardians continues the excellence but also brings a more philsophical touch with the discussion of what being a God actually means. I know I say this every time but Walker continues to get better and better with each issue. Read Full Review

    Population Go - Sam Hawkins Apr 8, 2014

    This is another fairly average issue of New Guardians. Whilst this comic doesn't do anything wrong, there isn't an awful lot to be excited about this issue, with most of the pages being dedicated to fleshing out both X'Hal and Godkillers. Now that's all been done though, it looks like we're set for a cataclysmic showdown next issue " with Kyle, Carol and the new Guardians caught in the middle of it! Read Full Review
