    Seeley is making a statement in this issue, and I can't wait to see what else he has in store for us. A great story with incredible writing, and beautiful art. What more can you ask for in a book? A definite must read for sure. Read Full Review

    Green Lanterns continues its hot streak under the new writer, and Im glad for it. This is still the DC title I personally look forward to the most every month. Now is a good time to hop on if you havent started reading it already. I highly recommend it. Pick it up. Read Full Review

    Eduardo Pansica continues on as the series artist. That's a smart move as Panscia's art has steadily improved and his art is a good fit for the title, especially when the script involves non-human encounters. Green Lanterns is in good hand with the new writer and readers who've been enjoying it so far won't have to worry about quitting it anytime soon. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Hussein Wasiti Oct 18, 2017

    Seeley impresses with his debut issue on this series. These are great characters with limitless possibilities and it's nice seeing a writer making it a point to further grow these characters in order to tell new stories. While I would have preferred a new artist to also make their debut, Pansica's art was fantastic. Read Full Review

    Green Lantern Corps - iggy Oct 18, 2017

    Tim Seeley's first issue continues the fun and excitement that this series is known for. I do have to mention the lettering error when Simon was being interviewed for his job, because the way the word balloon flowed it seemed that Simon stopped talking and Simon's potential employee was talking about their rap sheet. Despite the good intentions of the scene, having to read that particular part twice ruined the pacing in a critical moment for Simon's personal life. Otherwise Seeley delivered a great first issue.

    Comic Watch - Justin Oct 31, 2017

    I do feel that the splitting of the stories between the Earth lives and the Space missions gets to be a tad tedious, but I understand the direction of the character's development and will wait patiently for the payoff. I enjoyed this issue, the Cover art is amazing, and the use of color, detail and the pencil work are a strong reason to pick up this book. Read Full Review

    A newcreative team is in place, but whether its permanent or temporary remains tobe seen. Regardless, it may freshen the bloom on one of Rebirths earliesttitles. Not that it needed it, necessarily, but after 30+ issues, perhaps itstime. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Oct 18, 2017

    Tim Seeley's first issue of Green Lanterns is spread a little too thin because of everything he wanted to jam in this story, but overall I was happy to see that he was able to write these characters well and seems to be all about making them proper Green Lanterns while working on them getting over their problems.  The art in this issue was great and I'm looking forward to what Seeley brings to this series, but also hope that it's a little more contained than what we got here.

    Blog Of Oa - Myron Rumsey Oct 18, 2017

    Green Lanterns #33 is an okay start to Tim Seeley's run but I'm left feeling like he tried to do too much too fast both narratively and in terms of character progression. By shifting back and forth between space and Earth so often I felt like I didn't connect with any one part of the story Seeley is telling, and Jessica seems far too confident at this stage of her career considering the challenges she faces. While the art's a plus I can't say that the issue had much entertainment value. Six out of ten Lanterns. Read Full Review

    All-in-all, I don't really recommend this issue. I feel like this is part one of a garbage filler story. Read Full Review

    An average story lessened by troublesome visuals. This was not a good debut for Seeley on this book. The artwork has got to get better. This was a disappointing read. Read Full Review
