    With everything firing on all pistons, Green Lantern: New Guardians is becoming the series for fans to pay attention to. Not as heavy-handed as Green Lantern or as simplistic as Green Lantern Corps, New Guardians #3 is one of those issues when art and story come together perfectly. Read Full Review

    Another great installment in the series. If this keeps up we will have a very good addition to the Green Lantern universe. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Kirby Dec 5, 2011

    That's why I wasn't as excited about this issue as I was the last. Super Lantern = Awesome, Events unfolding = interesting, What is to come next issue = Super awesome! I crashed too hard from my high off the last issue but got immediately ramped up for the next one.

    So far, New Guardians is very enjoyable, definitely the BETTER of the Green Lantern titles thus far, without a doubt. I just want the Guardians to go already! Kick them out! push them out of the window! feed them to the dirt and shove them off this mortal (or immortal) coil! Lets get on with it!!! Read Full Review

    If you're a die-hard Kyle/Green Lantern fan like me, you'll still want to read this. You may not be particularly happy about it, but you will. The final page earned it a full point on the final score because it did that much to earn my $2.99 next month, however. Read Full Review
