A spacecraft the size of a solar system is on a collision course with Oa, home of the Guardians! As the AWOL Green Lantern Kyle Rayner and members of each of the different Corps make their way to the alien vessel, deep within the ship – within the very sun that serves as the craft's fuel source – the creature known as Seraphon stirs. A major new threat to the DC Universe debuts here!

    Initially I wasn't sure how much I'd like the New Guardians title, but five issues in and it's the book I look the more forward to after the main Green Lantern title.  And that says a lot about the book for someone like me who has never really liked Kyle Rayner to admit.  While it's the exploration and of the color spectrum and the cosmic science fiction elements that are bringing me to this book month after month, I truly am enjoying this series and this is the best issue yet.  Five out of five lanterns.

    Green Lantern: New Guardians has become my new favorite Green Lantern series. While I'm not sold on this new villain, the cast and Tony Bedard's strong grasp of their characters really succeed at winning me over. Tyler Kirkham keeps the pages looking great as well, even if I have problems with some of his design choices. This is turning out to be an excellent series that feels like it is genuinely trying to inject something new into the franchise while still working within the confines of the mythology DC has established these past few years.

    Outer Realm Comics - Garrett Jan 27, 2012

    The creative team on this book is consistant, and although the story itself is a little decompressed and slow to develop, with so many characters and so much potential I'm perfectly content to let this story be told slowly. Read Full Review

    Tyler Kirkham delivers a standout scene of Larfleeze eating dinner, which is incredibly gross yet entertaining. As far as the main players of the book go, he goes to extremes to visually distinguish each character: Arkillo is the size of the Hulk while Saint Walker is pencil-thin. His style lends itself to characters in motion, and he creatively makes the energy trail of each character as visually distinctive as their color, especially Glomulus, who zigzags and corkscrews around the page while Kyle descends in a perfect arc.

    The Comic Book Revue - Jay Mattson Jan 27, 2012

    I want to like this book. I love Green Lantern and Kyle is my all-time favorite GL, so I keep reading, sticking it out hoping that things will get better. Fortunately, this month's Blue Beetle promised a pretty awesome new arc starting with issue #10. Here's hoping things get better by June. Read Full Review
