    Green Lanterns #45 is a solid issue that delves deep, literally, into Jessica Cruz's memories and strikes at the heart of who she is today. Read Full Review

    Jessica's trauma is revealed and Simon ventures into unknown territory with the help of an infamous DC character. This was a big improvement over last issue, with all the reveals. I'm always overjoyed to see the “British street wizard” in any book. The visuals have strong character work, with teases of supernatural threats to come. Enjoyable. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Kevin A. Kimball Apr 29, 2018

    Green Lanterns is not without fault. The dialogue is fairly expository at times and a binge read of the book as a whole feels a bit repetitive. The characters however, lift the overall product above and beyond such minor problems and feel inconsequential. This series lives within the DC universe and within the parameters of said world, yet feels fresh and engaging. Green Lanterns should at the very least be on the radar of comic fans who prioritize character exploration over contradiction. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Marcus Freeman Apr 18, 2018

    Seely has bounced back from a slow opening issue to this arc, with an issue that answers a lot of questions that I had while addressing some of the concerns I had with the previous issue. Jessica has been described as someone that retreats within herself, and I'm afraid this may be literal for her now. Luckily, Simon is right on her trail. Read Full Review

    GREEN LANTERNS #45 continues "Ghosts Of The Past" with a slightly filler, but still gripping, chapter. Tim Seeley pushes Jessica closer to her lost memories, as Baz starts to find other answers. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Justin Cooper May 15, 2018

    I am a fan of any story that brings Jessica to the forefront, even if this was a slow build from that awful Bolphunga the Unrelenting storyline. Jain is a formidable villain and adept at the type of manipulation that can bring a Green Lantern to her knees. Looking forward to seeing how Jessica proves that she has the ability to overcome great Fear. It's always a welcome sight when Constantine shows up, and a great way to incorporate the bond of these two partners, through the vulnerability of the loss of their powers. This story is a must-read for fans of Green Lantern Jessica Cruz! Read Full Review

    Green Lanterns is already spinning a gripping story on its own, but it gets even better when Constantine is thrown into the mix. Read Full Review

    Green Lanterns #45 opens up pandora's box for Jessica Cruz and I'm deeply invested in what lies deep in the box. Another knockout issue of Green Lanterns. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Apr 21, 2018

    Green Lanterns #45 is an arguable slow issue, but Tim Seeley giving the transformative day of Jesses life is a good addition to the book. Cliquet and Hi-Fi make it a great-looking book. I quite liked it and can easily recommend it. Pick it up. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Philip Schweier Apr 25, 2018

    The story asa whole expands on what little is known regarding Jessicas origin: a tragiccrime, followed by crippling anxiety, only to be chosen by the power ring ofEarth 3. But this issue adds layers, much as other major characters have hadnuances to their origins over the years. Maybe it will help re-define Jessica,but I was kind of enjoying getting to know who she is NOW, rather than who she wasTHEN. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Cat Wyatt Apr 18, 2018

    I loved the artwork for this issue. The distortion around the black hole was beautifully done " it's enough for us to know something is seriously wrong, but it isn't exactly overdone either. It's a hard balance to find. The world Simon was seeing, upon entering the black hole was interesting as well. I thought he would see what Jess was seeing, but instead he sees a world tinted by green. I'm not sure if it's the green of the woods everything happened in, or the green of the rings. Perhaps a bit of both? Read Full Review

    Green Lanterns #45 is the most exciting chapter in the Ghosts of the Past yet. This is the origin story that we've heard about for this entire series, and finally we are getting to see it. Read Full Review

    Blog Of Oa - Myron Rumsey Apr 24, 2018

    Green Lanterns #45 is perhaps Tim Seeley's strongest work on the title so far. He keeps the identity of the mysterious killers secret for now, but his focus on Jessica Cruz's life before the incident provides new insight into her character. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Apr 18, 2018

    While Singularity Jain is still a bit of a mystery with her powers and whatnot, what we get here is more than enough to make up for it because we're diving deep into Jessica Cruz and what we find out may change the character forever and man am I excited.  I really enjoyed the art in this issue and the characters involved and right now, this arc seems to be the most important thing we've done with our Green Lanterns since Rebirth began.

    I went from disinterest in these characters at their inception to adding their title to my reading list. I recommend anyone who is skeptical about 2 more Lanterns read Green Lanternsand you'll see why they are needed. I for one am looking forward to issue #46 and the next part of Ghosts of the Past.

    This is Seeley's best issue so far (in my humble opinion). Is it perfect? No, but soooo much better than what's come before! I've never been a fan of Cliquet's art and it doesn't add much to the story here. It's just "ok" in my view. I'm just happy this issue is a step in the right direction for the series.

    Welcome to the Oblivion Bar where the first round is on me and the pretzels are free! Be warned: like the pickled eggs at the bar, this issue is going to get SPOILED rotten.

    We open with Jessica Cruz on a hunting trip to later figure out that it’s a past memory of hers. It looks like Jess has always had anxiety BUT we may be getting more of a reason as to why she became a shut-in for so long.

    It looks like she was on a hunting trip and came across some men that actually killed someone and were hiding the body. Jess and her friends must have stumbled onto them and it turns out, her friends were killed but Jess managed to escape.

    In the last issue, Jain must have noticed this repressed memory and dug it ou more

    With this issue, and his work on Imaginary Fiends... Tim Seeley has left his position of my personal most hated writer at DC. Good job, Seeley.
