    A solid conclusion with the heroes battling for one's future. The story is satisfying, with John Constantine having some great moments. The visuals are exceptional, in both art and colors, and someone at DC must get all three contributors locked onto a series for as long as possible. The final page teases that Jessica and Simon are in for changes from the higher ups. Read Full Review

    Green Lanterns #47 brings a warm and satisfying ending to ‘Ghosts of the Past.' The Green Lanterns partnership is strengthened, John Constantine is afforded some good lines, and the ending stinger promises another interesting story ahead. This one gets a recommendation. Give it a read. Read Full Review

    There's a lot going on in this issue, and one of the most unlikely and entertaining dynamics is the team-up between John Constantine and Sara Cruz, as she tries to help the mage make contact with where her sister is trapped. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Cat Wyatt May 16, 2018

    Another interesting issue. I'm glad we finally know what happened to Jess, and that she was even able to get some sort of resolution out of it. I like that the hero of the day (Simon, in this case) was able to save the day by talking instead of fighting. It's an interesting twist on things. I'm both worried and anxious to see what happens next with this plot; it's not fully wrapped up yet and there's one issue to go, so I guess we'll see. Read Full Review

    It's not perfect, and I saw some anatomy I'm not quite sure of, but further collaboration should enable them to work the kinks out in due time. I hope they stick around. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Marcus Freeman May 16, 2018

    With "Ghosts of the Past" completed, hopefully the book can move forward and towards more interesting subject matter. I find Jessica Cruz a very interesting character but this arc regarding her past did not consistently find its footing. The dynamic between Jessica and Simon was strong throughout, but inconsistent and at times ugly art, wordy dialogue, and unnecessary guest appearances bogged this arc down. Despite these issues, I remain interested in the future adventures of Jessica Cruz and Simon Baz. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea May 16, 2018

    While there are things that I had hoped would have been explained a little more...... or a little less abstract, this issue is still a great addition to what I think may be the best arc of Green Lanterns we've seen since Rebirth began.  We've got amazing art the entire way through and a story that really solidifies Jessica as one of the most unique Lanterns that we've ever had.

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles May 16, 2018

    Seeley is continuing to expand upon the bond of Baz and Cruz, which comes at an important time as the Guardians make a decision that will pose their greatest challenge yet. And who they send to dispatch that ruling makes for a very interesting next issue. Green Lanterns isn't quite back up to that perch where it was slowly becoming one of Rebirth's most improved titles, but it still makes for a solid and worthwhile read. Read Full Review

    As far as how the story is resolved, Simon is used effectively in his confrontations with Jessica. Constantine manages to find an insight that might help both of them. I also like that there is something brewing at the end of this issue that will cause some tension between Jessica, Simon, and someone connected to both of them. There are some good character moments in this issue and a possible evolution of Jessica as a character, but the main antagonist still stretches credibility with me as a viable threat.

    Comic Watch - Justin Cooper Jun 10, 2018

    A fitting ending to the Origin story for Jessica. I feel that with Batman we always get the Origin story. This does seem more of a Children's Story, or possibly the plot to a My Little Pony. Regardless, Simon breaks out of captivity and is able to save his friend Jessica. I am happy to see the future transition of the character's from this run into the next one. I recommend this title to those looking for a easy way into the Green lanterns mythos. Read Full Review

    Green Lanterns #47 wraps up a major chapter in Jessica Cruz's life which also putting things in motion which could shake up the title. With a creative shuffle looming it will be interesting to see where the Green Lantern franchise is headed in the months to come. That said, this issue provides a pretty satisfying conclusion. Seven out of ten lanterns. Read Full Review
