    Have hope, the other lanterns are coming next issue, and round two could go very differently. This first round is fun! Read Full Review

    It's hard to make beetle-men seem intimidating, but Tony Bedard does a fantastic job of keeping the pace steady and giving more information on a need-to-know basis. Tyler Kirkham's art is spectacular in conveying the hopelessness of the Blue Lanterns' defense against the Reach. This GL: NG / Blue Beetle semi-crossover looks to be very interesting, not only from a narrative standpoint, but also for it's ramifications on the DC universe in general! Read Full Review

    Green Lantern: New Guardians does what many books fail to do well, take over another writer's mythos and work with it perfectly while continuing to build onto it. Bedard and Kirkham are a great team and I love what they're doing with this book. There's the start to a great story line as the Reach and the Blue Lantern Corps go at it here and I love how powerful the Reach truly are. This is the start to a great cross-over. Read Full Review

    Green Lantern: New Guardians #9 is an action packed issue that shines a big bright blue light directly on Saint Walker and gives the beloved Blue Lantern some great character defining moments.  Just under the surface are some moments of intrigue as the plans of the Guardians creep ever closer to seeing fruition.  With just a few months left before we hit what's being billed as a cornerstone moment for the Green Lantern universe this issue keeps the tempo building.  Four out of five lanterns.

    The designs of the Blue Lanterns look a little rough, but the fanged Reach attackers come off appropriately menacing. Yet their menace is cut short when all of a sudden they begin morphing into different types of insects, shouting out each mode like Power Rangers. What began as a wonky outer space adventure has devolved into a head-scratching story that fails to engage the reader or provide depth in its narrative. Read Full Review
