    The dialogue between characters is so well written that it puts you as the reader right there in the story with them. I don't even care what happened to Simon and Jessica at this point, I want to read more about the first Green Lanterns and how they stopped Volthoom. I highly recommend this issue. Read Full Review

    Volthoom and Rami's backstory is visited and it brings needed clarification to their relationship. Outstanding story and art have this soaring far above other filler issues. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Jul 12, 2017

    This was another great comic by the Green Lanterns creative team, despite its questionable time placement in the Green Lanternssaga making it hold back the mystery of where Simon and Jessica went.Humphries has made a masterpiece of a series here, and it is my personal favorite DC: Rebirth offering. Pick this one up. Read Full Review

    This wasn't a flash issue of Green Lanterns, but one that was invaluable in making sense of the larger story. Even with Baz and Cruz on the sidelines, this was a strong outing. With the menace explained, let's see how Baz and Cruz can deal with him. Read Full Review

    My only disappointmentis that the two Green Lantern titles are not so tightly bound to one another.The impact of one is not felt in the other, and I would like to see a muchgreater cohesiveness between the two series. Read Full Review

    Ronan Cliquet returns on pencils and I absolutely adore his ability to make Volthoom's face light up with joy. Considering at this point we've only seen Volthoom only in shadow or driven mad by power, seeing him calm or enthusiastic makes the moments of terror and villainy have a great impact. Even though I've written a lot about Volthoom, I genuinely felt heart broken for Rami as he saw his own friend become enveloped by his own rage. A lesser artist would have made these moments lose their importance, but Clinquet knocks it out of the park again. Yes I'm disappointed that the story didn't actually progress, but if you jumped on with the previous issue then this second chapter was vital to retaining those new readers. A solid read overall.

    Those looking for Jessica and Simon dynamics, or even an answer to what has happened to them in issue 25, will have to wait. This is an issue built for those who are fascinated by the mind of a villain. What drives someone to become so ruthless? As with many cases, Volthoom's motives are heartbreaking but become twisted over time. Rami's role shows how just because you reject emotion, doesn't mean that pride and curiosity can still not be your demise. Read Full Review

    The story is well done in chronicling the history of the Green Lantern Corps and the art work is really well done. Read Full Review

    One of the strengths of Humphries is his ability to reallyhone in, and fully develop a villain. We can understand better why Volthoom has hatredagainst the guardians, why he is so persistent in getting his travellantern back, and we understand his motivations and his fears. Whatwe really excites me about this issue is the pattern that is developing. We areslowly being introduced to the wearers of the first seven rings. So i feel like an epic reunion is coming our ways. Overall a quick fun issue that helps us dig further into the overall arching plot. Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Charlie Chipman Jul 5, 2017

    A whole lot of momentum was lost with this issue, and while there was an interesting unloading of information, not seeing Jessica or Simon left me feeling disconnected. Read Full Review

    Blog Of Oa - Myron Rumsey Jul 11, 2017

    Green Lanterns #26 takes a sharp detour which could leave readers scratching their heads after the cliffhanger Sam Humphries ended the last issue with. With Simon Baz and Jessica Cruz nowhere in sight, this issue is one big information dump surrounded by the story of a friendship destroyed. While the story gives some interesting background on the history of the Green Lanterns at the end of the day it seems like it could have been handled in a way that didn't leave readers disconnected from the title's protagonists. Seven out of ten lanterns. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Cody Archbold Jul 8, 2017

    Rami, an unemotional man and Volthoom, a man with powers driven by his emotions forming a friendship is a fun concept. They act as foils and play off each other well. And the history of the Green Lantern rings are fleshed out a bit more as well. And the design of the Plant Elemental Green Lantern is such a cool design and I really want to see more of Calleen in future issues. Read Full Review

    Green Lanterns is far from DC's most visually consistent series, and that trend shows no sign of changing. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Jul 5, 2017

    While this issue looked great, it only gave us one new piece of information for the story moving forward and to do that, it had to wrap it around an entire issue of recap that just totally threw on the brakes for what we had previously.  This series has been so rough in my mind and it's issues like this that make me wish I could drop it because it's just so much filler that anyone reading this series would have already known besides for that one piece of information.   Read Full Review

    No Jessica, Simon, or any Green Lanterns in this issue, which was disappointing. If your interested in the creation of the first Green Lantern rings, then this story is for you, but unfortunately, it falls into astory that was somewhatuninteresting anduneventful.The last few pages, and the art, were the issue's only saving grace.
