    Green Lanterns #51 continues to build on the over arching story of how Jessica Cruz is not your typical Lantern as well as the general legacy of Green Lanterns. Be sure to pick up this dark and cryptic issue! Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Jul 24, 2018

    Green Lanterns #51 is an interesting turn for the title. I do miss the optimism, one-liners, and fun chemistry of Simon and Jesse here, but I am engaged enough to want to see where this story goes. Plus, Perkins and Hi-Fi make the book downright gorgeous. This one earns a recommendation. Check it out. Read Full Review

    Outside of a few really strong arcs from Sam Humphries, Green Lanterns has always felt like a title trying to find its way. Jurgens and Perkins seem to have a firm direction thats already making the book a more intriguing and engaging read. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Jul 18, 2018

    Two issues in, it's very clear that Dan Jurgens' Green Lanterns is much more of a Green Lantern Corps title than the Simon-and-Jessica-centric title that it was for the first forty-nine issues. It's a pretty darn good Green Lantern Corps title so far, filled with high stakes and thrills. However, although Simon and Jessica remain prominent fixtures in the book, it feels like a much less unique title than it used to be. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - David Lee Martins Jul 19, 2018

    I give this issue 4 stars. It's a well-executed issue with a lot of mystery and intrigue as well as gorgeous art. “Evil's Might” is turning out to be a great storyline for new readers as well as existing fans to thoroughly enjoy. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Cat Wyatt Jul 18, 2018

    This was a pretty intense issue, all things considered. It's hard not to reel from all of the implications happening here. In the course of just a few issues we've lost a Guardian, had John Stewart betrayed by his ring and then seriously injured, Mogo losing control to storms, and planet Penelos under attack and nearly eradicated. That's a lot to take in. It also says a lot about the enemy they're establishing. After all, if this is what these guys are doing in what is merely they're opening act, what could possibly follow?

    A solid issue that is crippled by its complete and utter lack of a real villain. Read Full Review

    GREEN LANTERNS #51 continues "Evil's Might" with a plodding installment. The art and story improve a little from the previous issue, but Dan Jurgens and the art team still have room to improve. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Marcus Freeman Jul 16, 2018

    Evil's Might continues, with the Green Lantern Corps being attacked from the outside and from within. Causalities are starting to mount, and the Lanterns don't seem to have a clue as to who their true enemy is. It seems like the Lanterns may begin pointing their fingers at each other before discovering what the true threat is. Read Full Review

    Mike Perkins' art is great in this issue and there are some great panels, especially the sequence involving Penelo. It was handled really well and the detail was great. He was able to convey a lot, especially in creatures that don't physically emote. Good work. Read Full Review

    Green Lantern Corps - iggy Jul 18, 2018

    The one aspect that I believe is hurting my love of this title, is the lack of focus on Simon and Jessica. Having the new series shift from a more lighthearted series to gritty tone is a choice I don't mind but when the stars of the series become part of a ensemble group then I take an issue. To Jurgen's credit, both Simon and Jessica continue to retain their distinct voices but the magic that Sam Humphries and Tim Seeley had just isn't channeling through Jurgen's work. There are some really interesting ideas that Jurgens is bringing to the table, the big one of course involving Mogo generate a tremendous thunderstorm, something I can't recall seeing in previous Green Lantern comics. I'm deeply curious to see where Jurgen's takes the series as we go further into this arc. If there is one character that Jurgern's seems to like writing the most is Guy. Jurgen's isn't doing anything different, but it's more of a reminder of why we love Guy's loud mouth. Read Full Review

    Overall, I like the feel of this book with what it's doing, I just wish that the execution came off a little more exciting.  The art has grown on me here, which is a plus, but I was still bored reading a title that should have become even more exciting with what Jurgens has done with it.  Hopefully, that changes as we progress because there is a lot of promise to this title and it would be a shame if it crashed and burned.

    Mike Perkinsartwork continues to displease, though not as much as before. He appears to besettling in, growing more comfortable with the challenges of the title, anddiscovering how best to render its unique characters and concepts moreeffectively. Im optimistic he will have a handle on it in due time, given theopportunity. Read Full Review

    Green Lanterns #51 loses all momentum and excitement that may have been built up in issue #50 thanks to obvious dialogue, inconsistent art, and a predictable narrative. Read Full Review
