    Comic Book Corps - Anthony Thornton Aug 1, 2018

    Green Lanterns #52 is a fun and exciting issue from beginning to end. The artwork sucks you in, and the story telling traps you in the world this creative team has built. There is a lot of information about our big bad, if you pay attention, but there are still so many unanswered questions, like WHO IS IT?! This whole arc has been suspenseful, exciting, and visually captivating, but this issue is by far the best yet. Read Full Review

    GREEN LANTERNS #52 continues "Evil's Might with a much stronger entry than previous issues. The new art team improves tremendously, and Dan Jurgens tells a much stronger story. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Aug 20, 2019

    Green Lanterns has been zipping right along since the fiftieth issue and I'm enjoying it a lot. Dan Jurgens knows how to work some solid stories and keep the pace moving with good action while seeding the bigger things. Add in in the character quirks and subplots is what makes it even better, as he continues to do here. As we're three installments into this story now it's definitely time for some true reveals, so I'm hopeful that things get more meaningful with the next installment. This is a solid read and one that looks great as Santucci captures the characters well and on-model while delivering pretty exciting space-based fights with all sorts of creatures and ships involved. Definitely a good artist to keep in rotation for this series at the least. Read Full Review

    This definitely isn't the same book (and we now know that this book is ending in a few months), but it's become a pretty effective tale of the Green Lantern Corps. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Cat Wyatt Aug 1, 2018

    This has been an intriguing plot so far. There are only so many forces and entities that can affect the Green Lantern force like this, so it's been interesting to see this one, even if it has been kicking ass and taking names at the same time. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Philip Schweier Aug 1, 2018

    What impressed me about this particular chapter is the artwork of Marco Santucci. I've made no secret that Im a big fan of Bronze Age comics, and Santuccis work reminds me of a blend of Jim Sherman, Mike Nasser and Terry Austin. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Marcus Freeman Aug 1, 2018

    The Green Lantern Corps continue to crumble from within, and even the Guardians are helpless to stop it. Jessica and Simon seem to be the major targets of this covert plot, leaving the veteran Green Lanterns skeptical of their motives. Dan Jurgens has crafted a well-written mystery in this arc of Green Lanterns, and here's hoping that the villain revealed next issue is as compelling as the story has been so far. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Connor Christiansen Aug 1, 2018

    The campy dialogue and disconnect between art and narrative context may keep Green Lanterns #52 from greatness, but the underlying mystery and commentary on misinformation make this issue an enjoyable and thought-provoking read. Read Full Review

    Green Lanterns #52 is a decent issue, but not something I'd feel the need to reread in the future. Read Full Review

    Also, many of the conflicts in this issue could be resolved with a conversation. Anyone of the Lanterns taking a moment to listen to the other could have foiled the miscommunication that seems to be what this entity is mainly doing from inside the rings. I want to see where this story is going and who this entity is, but the plot issues make it hard to stay involved and invested in this particular story. Santucci's art is a highlight though with some great visuals and awesome action splash panels. Read Full Review

    Green Lantern Corps - iggy Aug 1, 2018

    While I'm still enjoying what Jurgens is doing, I'm desperately seeking a reason to care about the main plot. One might think a Guardian dying would be enough, but once you've read enough Green Lantern comics you tend to know most of the guardians don't stay down for long. Santucci's art was the biggest reason for my enjoyment of this issues, even though it was a bit rougher around the edges but still a fun surprise. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Aug 1, 2018

    We're getting a lot of the same things we've already seen out of the previous issues to this arc here, while completely omitting other aspects entirely and what we get is an issue that feels out of place, while also feeling like a rerun at the same time.  Thankfully, the art in this issue is decent because besides that, a certain Lantern showing up and a dark smiling face that is promising doom, we don't really get anything out of this issue.
