    GREEN LANTERNS #48 begins "Rebel Run" and Aaron Gillespie's turn as head writer. He starts his tenure with an interesting, but somewhat muddled, story as Jessica has to run from the Green Lantern Corps. Read Full Review

    Shoot The Breeze Comics - Marcus Freeman Jun 7, 2018

    After a rather lackluster arc and annual issue, Green Lanterns bounces back with an explosive new are that pits Lantern against an entire Lantern corps. Jessica Cruz is on the run and she is trying to put the pieces together to find out why. I'm excited to see if Jessica finds the answer she needs or will Hal, Simon, and the corps take her down first? Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Jun 8, 2018

    Green Lanterns #48 delivers another good issue of the series, even as it transitions writers. The story feels like a natural progression from the previous issues, and none of the charm has been lost in the transition. Cliquet and Hi-Fi return to provide good artwork too, and the comic earns a recommendation. Read Full Review

    Green Lantern Corps - iggy Jun 6, 2018

    The overall tone of this issue felt extremely different from previous chapters of Seeley's run. This issue didn't share similar aspects that one might find when reading a Green Lantern story. This felt more like a suspense thriller. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Jun 6, 2018

    Although there's a guest writer on this issue, it actually does feel like a close to Seeley's run, and it's looking like a strong finish. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Cat Wyatt Jun 6, 2018

    This issue has been interesting. It's different from the others; in that it's not terribly clear what is actually going on. We're missing the whole beginning of this story, clearly in an attempt to obfuscate the truth from us. We can only hope that the next issue will give us more answers than this one will. On the bright side this one did do a good job of getting us emotionally invested in what was happening, so there's that. Read Full Review

    While it doesn't give many clues to the mystery that is laid out, it is fun to see Jessica's skills that she's grown into. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Jun 6, 2018

    All in all, the art in this issue is excellent and besides for a few missteps along the way and the fact that I'm a little pissed I don't know what's going on yet, this was  a pretty cool story that I look forward to getting back to next issue Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Connor Christiansen Jun 6, 2018

    At the base of Green Lanterns #48 lies an entertaining story, unfortunately it's buried under a frustrating regression of Jessica Cruz's character that make way for a lesser rogue-Lantern story. Read Full Review

    Jessica manages to escape and finds herself at a space port looking for the contact she let get away and this is another moment that gives way too much credit to Jessica Cruz as a character. I like her as a character overall, but the one thing that has yet to be explored for her is a sense that she is crafty enough to evade capture or move within the fringes of the galaxy in opposition to the other Lanterns who have been doing the job a lot longer. Without context, this story seems flat both in character and motivation. Read Full Review

    Ronan Cliquet is back at the drawingboard; hes perhaps my favorite GL artist in recent years. Which brings me tothe subject of the variant cover by Warren Loww. Imagine a Disney-styledrawing, heavily airbrushed to go on the side of your 1970s conversion van.Ick. Read Full Review

    Blog Of Oa - Myron Rumsey Jun 11, 2018

    Green Lanterns #48 seems like a misfire based on some odd narrative and characterization choices. The book does look nice, but it sure does feel like a story that was rushed to fill a couple of issues. Five out of ten lanterns. Read Full Review

    The info for this issue is incorrect on this page, the writer isn't actually Tim Seeley. Anywho, the issue follows the entire GL Corps chasing down Jessica and if you are a fan of the character you will like seeing her overcome her personal obstacles and show some real skill in avoiding capture.

    You can tell the writer isn't terribly familiar with the characters as they feel a little off here. Jessica is written far more wily than I think she would react in this situation. I think she would have turned herself in to get to the bottom of this rather than run away. She's far too inexperienced to evade the Corps in the way she did. You can tell this is a filler and it's too bad that the writer didn't continue to build on Tim Seeley's "Ghosts of the Past" arc rather than this jarring detour.
