"Something is amiss." That's what the Guardians believe. But even they cannot see the darkness growing inside the Central Power infection. One that will have enormous repercussions within the entire Green Lantern Corps. Making matters worse, in light of recent events, Jessica Cruz questions her place within the Green Lantern Corps, contemplating leaving it behind. And her partner Simon Baz is stung so much by her confession, he may let her go...

    Green Lanterns #50 is a fantastic issue that breaks away from the buddy-cop drama style that this series has had. The writing and art in this book are fabulous! Definitely pick this one up! Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Jul 23, 2019

    With this being the fiftieth issue, it pretty much does exactly what I thought it would. Oversized by about ten additional pages, it sets the new creative team in a good place with a number of unnerving things happening, the breakdown of communication, an unexpected death, and a strange sense of something really wrong on Mogo. All of this puts the right foundation to expand on things and I like all of the characters being used, even if it is a little human-centric. With some really solid artwork and characters that I like, and a mystery to boot, there's lots to look forward to here. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Cat Wyatt Jul 3, 2018

    This was an interesting issue. They're clearly building up for something big here, but it's anyone's guess where they're going to go with it. It should be interesting though. Seeing how tough John is was pretty cool, though obviously it stinks to see him hurt so badly. Here's hoping he comes back with a fury " it'd be incredibly satisfying to see him kick some blue butt after all of this is said and done. Read Full Review

    Green Lantern Corps - iggy Jul 4, 2018

    Even though Green Lanterns #50 has me utterly confused as to how we even got here, I desperately want to know where the rest of the story goes from here. Not a bad opening issue for Jurgens and Perkins. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Jul 4, 2018

    Under Jurgens guidance Green Lanterns looks to be on firm stable footing for the first time in months. Evils Might has a lot of promise and quickly establishes a fresh new tone for one of Rebirths most enduring titles. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Philip Schweier Jul 4, 2018

    In regards to the story as a whole, I see a potential turning point for one of my recent gripes. The two GL titles " Green Lanterns and Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps " have functioned mostly independently of one another, almost to the point of exclusion. But now, it appears that the GL Corps is acknowledged as having a role in the lives of Simon Baz and Jessica Cruz, the stars of this particular series. Read Full Review

    GREEN LANTERNS #50 brings on writer Dan Jurgens to start "Evil's Might." Unfortunately, it feels more like a rehash than a fresh start. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Jul 4, 2018

    It's a perfectly competent Green Lantern Corps series, but it's not Green Lanterns. Simon and Jessica feel like they're demoted to supporting characters, as John, Guy, and Kyle all migrate over from Hal's book to play major roles. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Marcus Freeman Jul 4, 2018

    It's all hands on deck as the Earth-based Green Lanterns become ensnared in a mystery that even the Guardians are weary of. John Stewart is left injured, and Mogo is in the midst of a mysterious storm. There is an impending sense of dread affecting the Green Lanterns; can they handle the threat when it presents itself?

    Green Lanterns #50 sets up several new mysteries that hit close to home, though one of those threads is far more compelling than the other. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Jul 4, 2018

    While I can't say that I'm the biggest fan of what we got out of this issue, I do see some aspects to it that I hope continue and expand because we have the prospect of getting a huge story here...I just wish that the characters and the art were better to go with it. Read Full Review

    A good start for new writer Dan Jurgens and artist Mike Perkins. This is the best GLs issue in a long time. It has a true GLC feeling. It's good to see other GLC members in the book besides Jessica and Simon. I'm excited to see where this new storyline goes!

    SPOILER WARNING!!! (Did you know that The Imperial Empire invaded the universe in this issue?)

    Writer: Dan Jurgens

    Artist: Mike Perkins

    After Seeley's run on Green Lantern, people have asked many questions. Will Dan Jurgens bring it back to its former glory, will this book be able to withstand being the only Green Lantern ongoing after Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corp #50, and how many similarities can one book have to Star Wars? Find out in this mega-sized issue of Green Lanterns.

    We start out with a lone Guardian doing his daily meditation and stretches before realising a presence he hasn't felt in a long time as well as a notice that this takes place after Hal n' Pals #50 which is a while more

    Perfect start to Jurgens’s run. It’s epic, it’s dramatic, it’s ominous, it makes great use of the characters. Look forward to more

    I've decided to give this book a go again now that Jurgens is starting his run, and I've enjoyed his recently finished run on the Action Comics. Even if the plot was a bit messy at some points, it was still a decent read, which really resembled the older Green Lantern Corps stories. The issue ended on an interesting note which will undoubtedly make me return once the next issue comes out.

    I'm not sure what is going on with the rings, but I'm intrigued to find out. The artwork in this issue needs serious help.

    I'm cautiously interested, but why are people so mean to poor John Stewart?
