    Green Lanterns #35 is a really smart issue with its regular endearing leads and high-flying adventure. Its easily recommendable, and you should certainly give it a read. There should be more comics like this coming out of the Big Two (thankfully Black Panther, Luke Cage, and Falcon are very much like this). Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Nov 16, 2017

    I am loving Green Lanterns. The past two issues I have read have been just wonderful superhero books. Tim Seeley delivers what I want in a superhero story. We get to see our heroes doing ordinary things and extraordinarythings simultaneously. We get to see them rise up and become something greater while they attempt to live ordinary lives. The art is also amazing in Green Lanterns #35. The artwork is bold and fits perfectly in a superhero book. I continue to be impressed with how easy it was for a new reader (of Green Lanterns) to jump in on this series in the 34th issue and still enjoy the story. I am excited about this issue and what comes next and that's a great credit to the creative team! Read Full Review

    Seeley mostly impresses me yet again with this issue. You can see the seeds being planted for a bigger story down the line in addition to him already picking up on some very recently seeded threads. Barberi's art was a joy to behold as well. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Patrick Rahall Nov 16, 2017

    I love seeing what artists and writers do with the powers of the Green Lantern rings; we see Jessica Cruz conjure up a fish and slapping Bolphunga across the face with it. Because the Lantern rings are limited only by the wearers imagination, the same holds true to the people behind the comic. I really enjoy seeing what they come up with as offensive and defensive weapons. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Cat Wyatt Nov 15, 2017

    On the whole I really liked artists work. The shading was a bit odd at times, especially when they were showing us more 'ordinary' scenes like Jess at work (though it's possible this was intentionally done " split the character's world into neat divisions). Additionally there are times where the faces characters make are quite humorous, and I don't think that was intentional. All that being said there was a lot to enjoy here; the bright and distinct color palette is exactly what I would want for a Green Lantern comic, and the way artists portrayed movement through lines and debris flying was superb.

    A really fun issue to read, and sets up not one, but two possibly different stories. Read Full Review

    Returning artistsBarberi and Santorelli bring a fresh and oh-so-effective look to our favoritespace cops. Because thats what Simon and Jessica are. Theyre cops, unlike HalJordan who is more of a super-hero. Which is not to diminish Simon and Jessica,but that distinction affects how the series is written, and why itssignificantly different from other entries in the Green Lantern franchise.

    Though GREEN LANTERNS #35 has several entertaining moments, it ultimately falls short in embodying a cohesive narrative. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Nov 15, 2017

    We still have a lot of stuff going on in this series that gets little vignettes throughout the story, but overall it's a lot of nothing, which I'm sure will come back eventually, but here it doesn't add up to much, while the main story fills out most of the issue with a fight scene before finally getting to anything interesting.  There's some fun to takeaway from this issue, but overall I just wanted more out of it, but thankfully the art was great all the way through.

    Pick this up if you don't mind a non-serious/silly read, and if you don't, you're not missing much. Read Full Review

    Green Lantern Corps - iggy Nov 14, 2017

    Green Lanterns was already a fun comic, but the added element of Bolphunga (plus his disappointed father) bring that element of fun to a whole new level. I'm interested to see how the plot on Ungara connects with the main story, but for now I'll just have to wait. Read Full Review

    Blog Of Oa - Myron Rumsey Nov 15, 2017

    Green Lanterns #35 suffers from trying to do too much and in the end doing very little. The introduction of a new antagonist has some potential as does the slight progression of the Ungaran plot, but all in all the issue is like Tim Seeley's depiction of Bolphunga, all thunder and noise and no substance. Five out of ten lanterns. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Justin Cooper Nov 24, 2017

    I like the direction that the B Plot is going, with the Molites. This shows that there are consequences to the meddling in affairs that are beyond their experiences. Also mingled with the whole”Failure to launch” aspects of the book. These are very real character traits, and we can understand and empathize with their struggles. Read Full Review
