    Green Lanterns has weathered the creative team carousel well and with Jurgens at the helm, the action and stakes has greatly improved. Next issue is sure to be incredible based on this cliffhanger. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Philip Schweier Aug 15, 2018

    Im pleasedMarco Santucci continues to illustrate the book. I hope he sticks around, ifnot on Green Lanterns, maybeelsewhere in the DCU. I suspect he might do well on JLA or Flash. Mike Perkinscover, on the other hand, is a bit lacking. It looks cobbled together as anafter thought. Read Full Review

    Dan Jurgens knows how to get the most out of the Lantern Corps, and while this is mostly an action issue it still moves the story forward in a big way. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Aug 27, 2019

    With a pretty good reveal through Simon's storyline that has me curious where it'll go, Green Lanterns moves the storyline forward well enough here. It understands the loss that's in front of it, acknowledges the events on Mogo that are pretty bad themselves, and puts the core group here through a tough fight with Eon and the Ravagers. It reads smoothly but isn't a fast read since there's some good dialogue throughout it and it builds upon what they're all going through. Jurgens works things just right here while Santucci puts together some good fights with impact while playing well with the powers of the Lanterns themselves. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Aug 17, 2018

    Green Lanterns #53 is another solid issue in the Evils Might arc of the title. We get some resolutions and a revelation, and the characters remain their engaging and charming selves while Santucci and Hi-Fi provide excellent visuals. This one earns a recommendation for sure. Check it out. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Marcus Freeman Aug 17, 2018

    The mastermind of the deconstruction of the Green Lantern Corps has been revealed, and the Green Lanterns have no idea what they are up against. The Green Lanterns were able to defeat the Ravagers, but that just seems like a small part of a master plan that the Green Lanterns are not prepared to stop. Simon Baz may be the first casualty of this master plan, as he is cut off from the rest of his fellow Green Lanterns. I'm interested to see how this villain makes their presence felt next issue.

    Blog Of Oa - Myron Rumsey Aug 16, 2018

    Green Lanterns #53 is an enjoyable read that keeps the plot moving forward with a classic cliffhanger at the end. The story has been unfolding pretty slowly but it doesn't seem padded as Jurgen juggles the supersized cast as well as you can expect. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Justin Cooper Aug 25, 2018

    This is a fun story, and I am super thrilled that it has been going on for more than Three issues. A Space epic with the who's who cast of the Green Lanterns, and we get Dan Jurgens at the helm! I love that we get to revisit Cyborg Superman as well. The issue had a great twist, and it shows us the heart of these heroes as well as their fists. Great issue and Dan Jurgens continues to show that he is untouchable in the DCU, regardless of the title. Read Full Review

    The art is great in the issue though and Santucci does some great work with composition and action. I really loved the first few panels with Simon in space and the Guy Gardner/Eon battle was great to look at as well. Read Full Review

    Green Lantern Corps - iggy Aug 15, 2018

    Even though I'm lukewarm as this story progresses, one thing that I'm not lukewarm on is Marco Santucci's pencils. I am completely convinced that Santucci loves Star Wars and wants to draw Star Wars, but Green Lanterns is close enough. The wide shots of the Green Lantern Corps looking at a space fleet is absolutely gorgeous. While in certain pages the line work is a bit rough, the overall dirty feeling that he puts into these pages are greatly appreciated. Plus that final shot of Cyborg Superman encompasses everything that is unsettling about this character that was created in 1994. I look forward to seeing how Santucci wows me with the next chapter.

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Aug 15, 2018

    While the majority of this book was pretty dull and offered up nothing new to the story, the king of cliffhangers himself, Dan Jurgens has brought out the big guns for the end of this issue that gets me pretty excited for what's to come and not only because it answers a continuity problem that we've been having in the Superman books, but because it offers up a real threat to our heroes.
