    Polarity marks an easy jumping on point for new readers. This isn't DC's highest profile book, but it simply works. Read Full Review

    Green Lanterns #19 is a bit of a quick read but one that does a good job of reacquainting readers with one of Green Lantern's best Silver Age villains by giving him a solid foundation and realizing some of the potential in the Doctor Polaris character.  The detour from the Volthoom story is frustrating but aside from that this issue is one of better this series has seen so far despite being your typical set up issue.  Eight out of ten lanterns.

    Green Lanterns #19 was a great way to open the arc, it reintroduces Doctor Polaris to the pantheon of Green Lantern villains with a twist plus the family drama with Baz could prove interesting as the arc goes on. Roland Cliquet on art continues to remain solid, so solid that I wish he could stick around for more than an issue or two. Read Full Review

    A good issue that has some forced moments but an overall good narrative. Doctor Polaris is done really well, but Jessica Cruz falls by the wayside in this issue. The art is visually well done, especially in showcasing the power of the characters. Read Full Review

    The difference in covers might confuse some readers, but both look pretty good. Despite the battle at the end, this was a prettydecent issue. Great artwork,with a lot of character development, and sets up what should be a very interesting fight to come. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Mar 20, 2017

    In short, this is a good issue, and takes the time to show us the villain's motivation and internal life rather than shorthanding it (having him kill a child or kick a puppy or something) and still letting our heroes be heroic. Green Lanterns #19 shows that you don't need a hotshot pilot being a jerk to make these stories exciting and puts a great deal of effort into making the clash between hero and villain meaningful to the story, while looking good from cover to cover.

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Mar 15, 2017

    While this issue of Green Lanterns looks great, I have to say that this is one of the fastest reads you'll have this week and part of that is do to not a lot going on here.  Yeah, we're setting things up a bit, but it just feels really basic for having this come in and stall us from our Volthoom story.  Not a bad read, but I wish we had a little bit more going on here.

    All in all, I really enjoyed this issue, I had a few issues with it but that didn't take away from the issue as a whole. Read Full Review

    Now I will continue to praise this series, as it is really a strong series overall, and is one of my favourite books to pull. Having said that it’s not uncommon for one issue to not be great, especially when it sets up a new arc. I would still recommend people to buy and read this series, as Sam Humphries is a really talented writer. Read Full Review
