"OUT OF TIME" finale! Simon Baz stands alone against Volthoom, the first and most powerful Lantern. It's a battle of courage and will that changes both Baz and Volthoom forever.

    With ‘Out of Time' ending, we will be getting back to business as usual for Jessica Cruz and Simon Baz, whatever that means for these two. Dont miss out on this ending, as it comes highly recommended. Give it a read. Read Full Review

    This is was a great read. As expected, Sam Humphries writes a killer story. I have been enthralled with his entire run on Green Lanterns. Read Full Review

    Perhaps the entire story is best enjoyed in a single sitting. It's hard to say, six issues after it began. But this issue is a very satisfying conclusion. My only regret is that perhaps with some judicious editing, the story could have been told in fewer pages, for a tighter narrative. Read Full Review

    An amazing finale to a mostly fantastic story arc. Read Full Review

    A solid conclusion to adventure in the past, with one character set on a dark path, while two more become rejuvenated. If only the art had been more consistent between issues. Maybe it would be if this title wasn't published twice a month. DC…? Read Full Review

    Yes this issue gave us a definitive end to this story, but I do appreciate that Humphries has left the door open for Volthoom to return in some fashion. This is superhero comics after, where the battle is truly never ending. While I wasn't a big fan with of certain aspects of this arc, I do admit that it was still a ridiculous fun romp and it made Jessica a stronger character going forward. Thankfully the art was more consistent than previous arcs making the reading experience a lot easier to swallow. Read Full Review

    A predictable conclusion, but one that maintained the heart and emotional growth of the characters. Great character moments and emotionally detailed art. Read Full Review

    Sam Humphries isn't done with this book yet, as his next issue is his last. If this issue was his last, however, I would be immensely pleased with the way it ended. This issue, however, was a lot of fun to read and looks gorgeous to boot. Read Full Review

    With Out of Time wrapped, Baz and Cruz are headed back home. This was an enjoyable arc and I'm optimistic Humphries can continue his momentum. Read Full Review

    The art just shines when the characters are expressing emotion. Seriously, when Simon and Jessica smile, I smile. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Sep 20, 2017

    While this story concludes with this issue and there are some fun moments........ overall, there was just things happening in this issue to get to the conclusion whether they made sense or not and by the end I just had a lot of questions about how the hell half the things in this book could actually go down.  The art was great though and I look forward to what comes next, but this ending seemed really forced, which is a shame for all the filler we've had leading up to and throughout this arc.

    Blog Of Oa - Myron Rumsey Sep 21, 2017

    In the end Green Lanterns #31 seems like a rushed finale that glosses over the impact of the ramifications of the story's narrative in order to deliver a feel good ending for the book's protagonists. The story of the first seven Green Lanterns seems lackluster in hindsight, failing to cash in on the potential Sam Humphries had to add new layers to the Green Lantern mythology and instead going for the cheap way out by essentially killing them off before they could have any meaningful contribution. Nonsensical writing decisions and a forced conclusion left this final chapter a real disappointment. Five out of ten lanterns. Read Full Review
