    Comic Vine - Corey 'Undeadpool' Schroeder Jun 18, 2014

    I love this as a turn for this book to take: the horror episodes of Star Trek were actually some of my favorites, both in the original run and ESPECIALLY in Next Generation. Space itself is a dark, strangling nightmare so inserting a truly malevolent, depraved force into it only adds to its innate sense of dread and terror. We get a great reveal at the end, but things are far from solved nor are they anywhere near okay. This issue teases out whatevers going on brilliantly and Im actually dreading whatever comes next, and I mean that in the best possible way. Read Full Review

    Overall, this was a transition issue, but there were details that made the storytelling compelling. I am interested in what happens next and in learning more about new alien races. The Psions were interesting in the past and Jordan has me on board to learn about the New 52 version. Read Full Review

    New Guardians #32 makes another strong case for why this series is the top dog. The horror movie approach Justin Jordan takes to this new arc is a welcome shift. Read Full Review

    A lot of build up. On it's own, this isn't much story-wise. My grade might improve in 30 days when all should be revealed. Read Full Review

    While this issue was a dramatic tone shift for New Guardians it was a well done one. Walker's art was on fire as usual but it was cool to see his art style fit around this particular story. The suspense for the next issue is killing me inside! Read Full Review

    Green Lantern: New Guardians #32 is largely a setup issue and what it may lack in a driving plot it more than makes up for with atmosphere thanks in large part to some spectacular work by the art team.  While we know very little about the Psions from this issue alone it appears that they are much more ruthless than their previous incarnation and they clearly have some sort of motivation for wanting the New Guardians in their presence.  Four out of five lanterns.

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Jun 19, 2014

    While I love the escape to a horror-esque themed story, this beginning didn't offer much to scare or give any real information to the reader.  It's all a set up that was littered with Carol yelling about finding Kyle and little else.  That being said, I think that the next issue will really kick things off, and we really shouldn't punish this issue for getting all the key players in place, and man were the artwork and colors spot on.  New Guardians is just a title I love to sit back and look at, and for the most part you don't even need a story to enjoy one of these issues.  That's a bit ridiculous, but check it out and awe at it's beauty.

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Noah Sharma Jun 24, 2014

    Readers who love psychological horror or atmospheric comics will probably get a real kick out of this issue, but I suspect that many readers may have trouble with the monotony of the story and predictable structure. Though Jordan succeeds in building anticipation for the next issue, it will likely be a matter of taste whether this one is worth your while. Read Full Review

    GREEN LANTERN: NEW GUARDIANS #32 isn't terrible. But in the end, it just doesn't deliver. Perhaps, once the second half of this plot has been revealed, this will all fit more smoothly into the overall narrative. But after jumping on board with the previous issue, I have to admit – I'm a little let down. Read Full Review

    Outright Geekery - Adam Jun 20, 2014

    Overall, not a bad book. Its missing Kyle which is a bummer and Carol constantly nagging the Guardians can get a little annoying, but overall this was a solid issue that set up what is hopefully an amazing issue 33. If you are a Lantern fan, then pick this one up. Read Full Review
