    This is the best issue so far. There is a painful, really honest moment when Frank and Simon's brother, Nazir, come face to face. It broke my heart and it will break yours too. I am from Michigan so I get it. I understand the story that Humphries is telling. Pay attention to this book. I will not be shocked when it starts to win awards. Read Full Review

    Heroes Direct - Eammon Jacobs Nov 17, 2016

    Overall,Green Lanterns #10 is another welcome addition to the series. It just proves that the greatest heroes don't always have to be the go-to obvious heroes like Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman. But sometimes it's the girl with social anxiety and stress problems that can save the day. If that's not an important message for audiences, we're not sure what is. We can't wait to see where this storyline goes, especially given that Volthoom is proving to be a devious and cunning overlord to Frank Laminski. His nefarious plans probably stretch further than the wannabe Lantern. At it's heart,Green Lanterns #10 is more about the strength of character rather than heroes. Comic books fans should definitely be reading this series. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Dennis Mui Nov 3, 2016

    Overall, GREEN LANTERNS #10 is a well-written issue that introduces Frank Laminski to the rookie Green Lanterns, reveals how dangerous Laminski is and can be, and shows that Baz and Cruz have a long way to go before they're each ready to be on their own as superheroes. Seems like they'll have to learn a bit quicker since they have no idea where Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps are at the moment and can't get help. We'll have to find out how the rookie duo handle the Phantom Ring next time inGREEN LANTERNS #11! Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Justin Partridge Nov 2, 2016

    Though Green Lanterns made great use of the Red Lanterns in its opening arc, the inclusion of the Phantom Ring puts the title and its cast into uncharted, narratively rich waters. Sam Humphries and a game art team start this new arc with big stakes and honed artwork without sacrificing what made the title interesting in the first place. With its solid character work and fast-paced introduction to the new baddies, Green Lanterns #10 is a solidly entertaining start to the title's latest story arc. Read Full Review

    Kabooooom - Brandon Griffin Nov 3, 2016

    Green Lanterns has already been one of the strongest books to come out of DC Rebirth, this next story arc is poised to push this series even further. With Humphries creating compelling new characters, on top of already making Baz and Cruz fan favorites, this could easily end up as an essential Green Lantern read for years to come.

    Weird Science - Joey Casco CSW/CSS Nov 22, 2019

    Heroes being heroes, going into a fire to save a little girl and connecting on a personal level with them to make sure they're okay. Villains being villains, doing what it takes to get what they want. This is an entertaining issue that sets up the rest of the arc, as the Green Lanterns of 2814 now have to deal with an enemy who can use every power on the Emotional Spectrum. Also, the art is fantastic. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Nov 1, 2016

    Even with the inconsistent art, this was another strong issue for a title that's really picked up some momentum as of late. I'm very invested in this storyline and the various possibilities Humphries has to explore with this new villain. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Nov 2, 2016

    While this issue moves really fast and appears that not a lot goes on, I still found it really enjoyable and loved the art throughout, not to mention the big reveal about what the Phantom Ring can do.  I seriously look forward in seeing where this story goes because not only are we getting the return of Volthoom, but a new villain that hopefully lasts more than a couple of issues.  Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Batmanaruto Nov 2, 2016

    In conclusion, this issue is really more of a set-up issue, much needed and presented in an interesting way, but nothing we haven’t seen before, regarding Jessica and Simon (except Simon’s relationship with his brother-in-law). However, it does get me really excited for how Simon and Jessica, will face off against the Phantom Lantern, and what Volthoom is planning on next. Read Full Review

    Blog Of Oa - Myron Rumsey Nov 2, 2016

    Green Lanterns #10 is a quick read to be sure, but it's a good start on the second arc of the series.  By leaving the established mythology behind and forging something original Sam Humphries is adding something unique to the storied lore of the Green Lantern universe.  The art remains consistently inconsistent which DC would do well to pay some attention to rectifying.  Seven out of ten lanterns.

    Green Lantern Corps - iggy Nov 2, 2016

    The opening arc for the Phantom Lantern was a mixed bag for me, I'm not looking forward to what this means for Jessica and Simon but I am interested into see what the Phantom Ring can do and what's Voolthooms end game is. Also I hope that Pansica sticks around for art duties, and not just for the Ivan Reis comparison but so that this book can continue to receive consistent art. Read Full Review
