    This is what you want in a lantern book. Epic scale, epic action, and epic powers with rings aplenty. Fun, fun, fun. NOK. Read Full Review

    If you'd told me last year that the Kyle Rayner book would be my favorite Green Lantern title, I'd have scoffed. But here we are. Green Lantern: New Guardians #6 - stuff's actually happening, and it's bright and shiny and the most interesting ringslingin' goin' these days. Read Full Review

    While this issue is a fast read the level of action and seeing them New Guardians get taken out so easily by this new foe made the book exciting.  Clearly this isn't a character driven issue although we see more about the nature of the cast through their responses to this greater threat.  Four out of five lanterns.

    I'm still loving this series, and it is my favorite of all the Lantern books. It has a stellar art team, and the splash pages are beautiful. I loved the fight scenes in this issue, especially when they involved Arkillo. Invictus is a cool character, but I had a problem with him on my first read through because I felt he was like every other bad guy the Corps have faced before. Overall, I really like the series and this issue. I recommend it. Read Full Review

    This books lack of clarity and jumbled art made it a stumbling block in what has been a very enjoyable first arc. Readers may walk away from this book somewhat displeased, but I hold out hope that issue 7 will tie it all together with a nice multicolored bow on top. If nothing else, at least Bleez will be back.

    Continue reading this title as seeds are planted in this issue, like Larfleeze's connection to Invictus and the return of a team member, which have me awaiting next month's edition. Despite this setback, Green Lantern New Guardians is still a great team book. Hopefully issue #7 will get to being just that. Read Full Review

    In terms of character interaction, things aren't much better. Invictus is too lacking in personality at this stage. He does at least qualify as the noble sort of villain who believes himself to be in the right, but that amounts to little in the end. Tony Bedard would be much better off embracing the high concept sci-fi elements and avoiding these drawn-out fight scenes that merely stall the larger conflict. There's a solid foundation beneath all the flash, and it needs to be brought to the forefront. Read Full Review

    This wasn't a very bad comic... In all honesty, it doesn't deserve to be scored with Brightest Day Rules, but a promise is a promise, so onward we go. Right off the bat +5 for a good story, +5 for good art and +10 for no Larfleeze! So we're rolling right off the bat! Read Full Review
