    Bringing in a diverse cast of aliens with interesting dynamics makes this a gripping continuation of the previous issues. Read Full Review

    The original seven lanterns have arrived, but will they tolerate Simon and Jessica? The story is fantastic and the art powerful. This is the type of Lantern story that fans crave. Check this out! Read Full Review

    While some Rebirth titles have started faltering in Year 2, Green Lanterns seems to be gaining more and more momentum. This is a book that's quickly starting to earn highly anticipated status and this was another outstanding issue of Rebirth's most improved titles. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Aug 5, 2017

    Green Lanterns continues to be a joyous and exciting ride through the lives of Simon Baz and Jessica Cruz as Green Lanterns. This expansion on the cosmic lore of the Green Lantern Corps is interesting and very engaging. This is still my favorite DC comic running right now, and I highly recommend hopping on board with the series. Read Full Review

    Despite some negative points in this issue, it really was a fantastic read. Also, and this should come as no surprise, J-Bird is slowly becoming my favorite DC superhero. Read Full Review

    This is hardly DC's most visually consistent comic, but it does have some pretty major highs. Read Full Review

    Humphries writes an amazing book. This issue wasn't as exciting as the past few issues, but I'm not mad about it. Great stories need to be set up and that is exactly what he's doing. I'm not a fan of the cover art because Cruz looks incredibly disproportionate, but the issue itself is very colorful and well drawn. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Philip Schweier Aug 2, 2017

    But I do enjoy a good time travel story, especially when it incorporates elements of the DC Universe at large. Civilizations such as Krypton and Tamaran are given theirdue. Though it would explain why Simon and Jessica are absent from the currentgoings on in the pages of Hal Jordan andthe Green Lantern Corps. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Aug 2, 2017

    While the majority of this issue feels like a simple slug fest, I do have to say that I did appreciate the time that was taken to remind all of us who the original seven Lanterns are and where they come from since their origins have been spread out over a shit ton of issues now.  I also liked that we got to see that while these are Green Lantern rings these seven are wearing, they aren't like the ones we're used to and that they're pretty dangerous weapons to wield.  The art in this issue was great and I can't wait to finally get to our heroes taking on Volthoom.

    Green Lantern Corps - iggy Aug 2, 2017

    Despite my complaints, I still enjoyed the meeting of past and current Green Lanterns. Seeing new characters bear the Green Light is always exciting and with all of them being very different aliens (and one elemental) could and should provide unique character dynamics as this arc moves forward. Overall and fun issue of a team coming together for the first time. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Hussein Wasiti Aug 2, 2017

    There simply isn't much to this issue. It moves quick and is kind of fun, and has some nice art to boot. I just take issue with Humphries' sometimes laughable dialogue and pacing problems. Read Full Review

    Blog Of Oa - Myron Rumsey Aug 2, 2017

    Green Lanterns #28 is a fast paced read that will leaving you wondering where the pages went. Slim on plot but heavy on action the story doesn't get particularly more interesting to read, but it is fun to look at. Six out of ten lanterns. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Dayna Abel Aug 2, 2017

    Green Lanterns #28 started out strong, with the promise of exploring new characters and letting them flourish, but the plot beats weren't given much time to breathe and the conflicts felt rushed and their resolutions nonsensical. While ordinarily I love this series, I was disappointed in this issue. Hopefully it picks back up next month. Read Full Review
