World breaker and sun killer: Invictus has come to remake us all into his vision of perfection – he just needs to burn everything in his path first. In the New Guardians' most desperate hour, Red Lantern Bleez returns, but is even her rage a match for the wrath of a living god?

    Green Lantern: New Guardians number seven peels the layers back on cosmic history and reveals more about Invictus, a character that deserves to have a long lifespan in the Green Lantern universe once this story is over.  Providing a great deal of dialogue in an issue filled with awe inspiring artwork the creative team of Tony Bedard and Tyler Kirkham has turned this title from the book I was the least excited about into one of the books I look forward to the most each month.  Five out of five lanterns.

    The story of the Angels of Vega points to Larfleeze as the culprit behind the creation of the New Guardians. In a somewhat annoying info dump, Kyle Rayner explains how Larfleeze was the one who stole the various-colored rings and sent the team on their mission to kill Invictus. The manic-depressive Invictus finally shows some restraint and decides to not replace the current Vega system with his copy. How nice! Instead, he wants Kyle to kill Larfleeze. Who's ready for next month's issue? This guy. Read Full Review

    This title was hurt in the past by having multiple pencillers with noticeably different styles, but luckily Tyler Kirkham tackles this one all by himself. He does a solid job of grounding these galactic-sized events onto the page and has a little fun at the same time; as the Lanterns charge into battle, Glomulus sports three handguns and a knife. While Kirkham does not take many risks with his layouts, he does utilize his exaggerated style to effectively showcase the crazy cosmic events that fill this book. Read Full Review

    Examiner - Phillip Martinez Mar 29, 2012

    Overall the issue is a solid step towards the conclusion of the first arc. This issue would have received a higher review if not for the rather glaring problem mentioned earlier. There's still a mystery to be solved, but that will be taking a step back so the team can resolve the Invictus and Larfleeze confrontation which by what happens at the end of this issue, should be a doozy.
