    This issue does a lot to move the plot along without giving up action or character development.  This is my favorite issue of the series yet and I for one can't wait for issue five.  Five out of five lanterns. Read Full Review

    There is just so much going on in this book -- so many characters, settings, tons of dialogue and action -- and yet, it feels really put together, polished, and well executed. Although I'm not sure how I feel about the big reveal at the end of the book of a large space vessel -- it is the largest thing ever constructed, and literally the size of a solar system.

    Continuing the fight around the universe, Green Lantern New Guardians is a book I keep coming back to. The creative team keeps giving us a great team book where everyone on the team pretty much hates each other. Ok, well Saint Walker doesnt hate anybody, but Bleez has enough hate to make up for that.

    You have four Lantern books to choose from: GREEN LANTERN, GREEN LANTERN CORPS, NEW GUARDIANS, and RED LANTERNS. If you can only pick two of them, you should read GREEN LANTERN and NEW GUARDIANS, even if you're not a huge Kyle Rayner fan. This book is jam packed with everything a lantern corps fan could want. There's a few really cool plots revealed in this issue, the Blue Lantern Corps' powers have been changed, so they're a bit more useful, and so have the rest of the other corps powers. The only bad part of the book, which is just more confusing than anything is that I don't know when this takes place compared to the RED LANTERNS book. Overall, this is my second favorite of the Lantern books, and I highly recommend it. Read Full Review

    Part of the bigger picture is how issue #4 of Green Lantern: New Guardians feeds into this complete lack of direction within the Lantern Universe. None of the books seem to be able to gel or find their voice. Green Lantern Corps has the most fun and New Guardians is the most consistently well written, but still aren’t anything great. All of the Green Lantern titles feel jumbled, like a giant mess nobody at DC wants to clean up. I’m hoping the creative forces get their act together and align to get the entire Green Lantern Universe on track. As always, Tyler Kirkham’s art is stellar and the colors from Nei Ruffino make the issue worth checking out. Story wise though, there’s just nothing to see here. Read Full Review
