Wall has left him slowly losing his grip on reality, and the Guardians are gravely concerned. When help arrives in the form of Highfather, the Guardians know the All-Father is not to be trusted, but desperation can lead to bad decisions. Kyles walking into a trap, and he has more to lose than he can imagine!

    GREEN LANTERN: NEW GUARDIANS #35 is a huge hit. It's a great issue for readers to jump in on, but the issue doesn't spend the whole time catching said new readers up. It adds a lot of the overall story and most importantly, it's a really fun read. Jordan provides us with a story that adds a lot to the arc and gives the reader new insight into the New Gods, who aren't really the villains here, that we know of. If you've been enjoying Godhead, this is a must read, even if you've missed out on GLNG. Read Full Review

    Have I mentioned before how I have a huge man crush on Wil Quintana?  While I don't want to take away from the work of Brad Walker and Andrew Hennessy, but Quintana's colors make this book month after month and man does it shine here.  While I felt personally betrayed by characters in this book, I really enjoyed the story and this issue seems like it's kicked GODHEAD in the pants to get it going.  Go check it out and watch your favorite Lantern Kyle Rayner change reality in the most shocking way I could imagine.

    Green Lantern: New Guardians #35 is a satisfying addition to the unfolding Godhead saga. Kyle has always been (aside from Alan Scott) my favorite Lantern, and I'm glad to still see him being handled well and with respect here. GL fans enjoying the crossover thus far should find themselves satisfied with this book. Read Full Review

    There's something about DC's new "Godhead" arc that is just bringing out the best in the Green Lantern titles. New Guardians is no exception, as Justin Jordan and Brad Walker spin a tale of action and betrayal. Read Full Review

    Green Lantern: New Guardians #35 provides GodHead with the needed perspective that there really are no true villains in this story.  Highfather is portrayed much more, well, human and it goes a long way to establish the New 52 version of his character and provide insight on the New Gods that this event has been lacking up until now.  This issue serves as a parting of the ways between Kyle, Carol and the New Guardians in more ways than one while pushing the overall arc of GodHead forward considerably.  Four out of five lanterns.

    While it's only four parts in this was a fun breather issue for this event. It was nice that the titular star of the book was given the primary focus instead of the New Gods, plus the Judas moment between Kyle, Carol, and the New Guardians I've said it before and I'll say it again but Brad Walker is simply an amazing artist. He continues to make action sequences dynamic and exposition scenes just as compelling. His growth as an artist has been fun to look at. Read Full Review

    Does this Green Lantern: New Guardians issue reward readers who have been waiting for it? Hell yes. Godhead has been decent up to this point, but this issue brings it up a step and really leaves a feeling of longing for the next issue once its done. What more could you ask for from a comic than that antsy, panicky feeling that you need to read the next issue now and waiting just isnt an option? Bravo. Read Full Review

    Whether you mark this as talky or true-to-life is a matter of taste, but Jordan demonstrates his own mastery of the emotional spectrum, particularly something in the yellow range, as Brad Walker shows off some masterful expression work. Read Full Review

    If you are a reader picking this issue up on a whim, you are most likely to be disappointed. If you've followed the early stages of Godhead, then you probably will be ready to continue the story next week when it moves over into Red Lanterns #35. The good news for incoming readers is the event is fairly new and it should be easy to pick up the previous chapters at your local comic shop. Read Full Review

    Justin Jordan may be putting out the best Green Lantern book right now, and this issue gives credence to that theory. Filled with great character moments and, while there's a lack of action for a good portion of the issue, the book moves at a great pace, and helps establish what has the potential to be a great event. The artwork by Brad Walker is fantastic in every panel, with good clean lines, great detail, and great surroundings. Walker knows how to draw space in a way that feels, rather correctly, otherworldly. The planet where the issue takes place is not in the Milky Way galaxy, but somewhere we've never even seen before, and getting that chance to see it is amazing. Everything works for this issue. There's one nitpick I have, but it's more

    Great issue that reminds me why New Guardians is my favorite GL New 52 book. Justin Jordan includes a lot of lines that call back to the various defining moments Kyle has had as the White Lantern. The year he has spent with the Guardians has caused him to have some grievances which are clearly aired here, and you can see a shed of the old guardians showing in the new ones. The nature of the Life Equation is also fleshed out a tiny bit more here, helping us to see just what Kyle has become. Art is also great, Brad Walker, Drew Hennessy and Wil Quintana always bring it in this series. Makes me sad there's only 5 more issues to go. I have a feeling Kyle will play a big part in Godhead based on this issue.

    This was one of the better entries in this unpleasant Godhead experience.
