"OUT OF TIME" part five! Jessica, Simon and the first seven bearers of green rings face Volthoom in the past as he holds the Guardians of the Universe hostage. As Lantern after Lanten falls, is there any chance of stopping the First Lantern from rewriting reality?

    Perfection in every way as Volthoom is battled, often to the death. The story is incredible, surprising, and cheer worthy. The visuals are perfection. Everything about this book is amazing. An absolute must-read for fans of heroics and ring slingers. Read Full Review

    The artwork was good. I especially like the panels that represented Volthoom in the several conflicting spectrums. Those were done colorfully and with great detail. Theres one panel where Volthoom is holding up an unconscious Jessica by her hair that looks evil and awesome at the same time. All-in-all the art was very pleasant to look at. After Simon received four rings he seemed to have a slightly new look, and I like it more. To be honest I was never a Simon Baz fan with his Kick-Ass looking wetsuit thing that he had going on.and I dont mean Kick-Ass as in badass, I mean Kick-Ass as in Mark Millars Kick-Ass. I hope he keeps this look. Its better. Include this issue in your weekly pull. Green Lanterns #30 continues its epic run. Read Full Review

    I've really enjoyed this arc as everything is coming together wonderfully. If Green Lanterns remains at this level it's going to become one of DC's must-read books every other week. Read Full Review

    Despite art issues and some narrative letdowns, Green Lanterns #30 is still an exciting ride with great lead characters. This comic still dominates Rebirth and deserves to be on everyones pull list. Grab this one the next time you see it. Read Full Review

    A solid fight comic, though it does have a battle that could have used some planning given the last few issues and all the preperation. Read Full Review

    A good continuation of the story arc that gives the characters some much needed development and motivation. The art is fantastic. Read Full Review

    But even asthe story continues, Im ready for it to end. Its one of the things I hateabout modern comics, how the publishers insist on six-issue story arcs so theycan be repackaged for the trade paperback format. Such a strategy has no doubtkept some wonderful shorter stories from ever being told. Or if they wereprinted, they were padded, and thereby neutered. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Sep 6, 2017

    While this issue of Green Lanterns ups the ante in the action department, it feels like everything is coming to a head too fast here and we're rushing to a conclusion out of nowhere.  That being said, this is still a cool issue with great art and the only thing that could have made it better for me was if Volthoom was acting more like himself than just a replay of the Phantom Lantern Frank Laminski.   Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Sep 7, 2017

    Visually, this issue struggles in other areas, including the uniformity of Barberi's facial work and the repetitive use of splash pages. It's hard not to wonder how this issue might have turned out with a different creative pairing. Read Full Review

    While not without fun and entertaining moments, Green Lanterns #30 has so much story potential that is mostly lost due to an over-saturated plot and under-developed battle scene. Read Full Review

    Green Lantern Corps - iggy Sep 6, 2017

    This was honestly a step backwards given the previous issues. Mostly because of the art starting off on a bad foot (only for it to look decent at the finish line). This first confrontation with Volthoom did have an epic feeling to it and while Simon's dialog was cheesy it certainly enhanced the battle for me. Read Full Review

    Blog Of Oa - Myron Rumsey Sep 11, 2017

    Green Lanterns #30 is a big disappointment as Sam Humphries' more interesting additions to Green Lantern lore serve more as a plot device than as quality additions to the rich legacy of the Green Lantern universe. That and inconsistent art make this once of the least entertaining books in the run so far. Five out of ten lanterns. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Cody Archbold Sep 7, 2017

    The New Lanterns are being killed off before a significant attachment can be made. They're mostly just there for Simon and Jess' development, but they had so much potential. Ultimately, they're barely more than red shirts. Read Full Review

    This issue is incredibly disappointing on many levels, particularly with its ending. To call the issue boring would be an overstatement, as the art really helped me get through this issue. I'm tired of this story and I'm very excited to see it end. Read Full Review
