    If you're not reading Green Lanterns now, you're missing out on a consistently entertaining book that just keeps getting better every issue. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Sep 12, 2017

    While this is one of the slower issues of Green Lanterns, it still makes for a compelling read. Sam Humphries has kept this series compulsively readable, and it goes far beyond the hopes I envisioned back when this comic was announced. This is Rebirths best comic, and it deserves a read. Check it out. Read Full Review

    A good set up issue that's got some sweet GL training. Read Full Review

    The only real problem I had with this issue, was that I felt that it really wasn't needed. Yes I did enjoy the character work, but the plot needed to progress a bit more for my liking. Still a fun issue, but I kinda want the action against Volthoom to kick into high gear and if the ending of this issue is any indication then I'll be extremely satisfied. Read Full Review

    The visuals are muddled by the colors, but the story is still top notch. It's neat to see the Ancient Lanterns in action and this is the issue that unifies them as a team, though at a steep cost. I'm hoping once this story line's threat is beaten more tales of these new/old lanterns will be told. Read Full Review

    Jessicas frustration at her own lack of experience and teaching skills make her incredibly sympathetic. This is one character, who I absolutely want to succeed. And it is incredibly satisfying when she does! Read Full Review

    This unfortunately wasn't one of my favorite issues to read. It had some good parts, but lacked heart and beautiful artwork. Read Full Review

    Let the training begin and with it, a padded out issue that really does nothing until it has to throw a concept out at you that doesn't make sense in the first place.  Now with that being said, this isn't all bad.  We have an issue with interesting characters and the idea that things will start happening in this book by the end, not to mention that the art was kick ass the whole way through.  I just wish that there seemed to be rhyme or reason behind Sam Humphries decisions to do things here because he just throws anything he thinks is cool at the page, whether it makes sense or not....... usually not.

    The artworkis typical for what weve come to expect from the series, as Pansica and Ferreiradevelop a firmer grasp on depicting the near-magical scope of the power rings,as well as the cosmos at large. Humphries, however, may have stumbled into arut, saying that a GL needs to have imagination in their constructs. But hisloop hole is not so much him saying it, as having Jessica (a less experiencedGL) say it. Read Full Review

    At this point I'm just counting down the issues until Humphries leaves the book. His bafflingly slow pace is unparalleled, surpassing the pacing issues of even Bryan Hitch and Tom King's Batman. Pansica's art was a treat to look at, but I'm afraid it was the only saving grace of the issue. Read Full Review

    Blog Of Oa - Myron Rumsey Aug 16, 2017

    Green Lanterns #29 is an entirely skippable issue that spend too much time showing how self absorbed the characters are and draining what little momentum is left from the plot. The one saving grace is that the book is least visually appealing, but hardly enough to warrant dropping three bucks on it. Four out of ten lanterns. Read Full Review
