    The Brazen Bull - Dylan Surmonte Oct 3, 2018

    Jurgens's story continues wayward and with Perkins's art, Hi-Fi's colors, and Sharpe's letters and sounds, he successfully continue to construct an epic story. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Oct 24, 2019

    With this book, I'm mostly just looking for action and events to unfold as opposed to strong character material. Jurgens is a writer I like a lot in the kinds of tales he comes up with and the scale of it all so this works well with him working with Henshaw once again and messing with the Green Lantern Corps. We get good stuff out of most of the casts that's here with Stewart and Baz getting a solid piece of attention as they save the day. It's fairly standard structure material and there really aren't any surprises but what we get is a lot of fun and I'm looking forward to seeing how it all wraps up. Read Full Review

    Next issue looks to continue the intensity with what looks to be the big showdown and conclusion of a pretty engaging arc. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Marcus Freeman Oct 3, 2018

    The Green Lantern Corps are now free from Cyborg Superman's influence thanks to Simon Baz and John Stewart, but the villain has set his sights on a new and familiar target: Coast City. Cyborg Superman looks to finish the job he started years earlier. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Oct 3, 2018

    I have little doubt that this will be a compelling final issue in two weeks as Cyborg Superman descends on the rebuilt Coast City " but shouldn't it have taken place in Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps instead? Read Full Review

    Blog Of Oa - Myron Rumsey Oct 3, 2018

    Green Lanterns #56 is a good issue but suffers from a couple of questionable narrative decisions that lessened my enjoyment of the finished product. That said I'm very much looking forward to seeing the conclusion in a couple of weeks before The Green Lantern debuts in November. Read Full Review

    GREEN LANTERNS #56 continues "Evil's Might" as Hank Henshaw's forces start furthering their schemes. Dan Jurgens create a solid, but still filler, issue that mainly moves the story around. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Philip Schweier Oct 3, 2018

    I am hopefulnext issue will feature the conclusion of the current story arc. There could bea lot for 21 pages to hold, but Im ready for the story to end. After therecent battles between the GLs and the Dominators, I could do with a simplerstory, of Jessica and Simon putting out fires, stopping bank robberies, andeating pancakes. Read Full Review

    Green Lantern Corps - iggy Oct 3, 2018

    Despite my lack of enthusiasm of the story, Mike Perkin's pencils remain stellar. I'll admit that this issue, certain pages seemed a bit muddier than others but the overall dark aesthetic remains perfectly intact. Maybe I just love Hank Henshaw, but I love his facial expressions for Henshaw. I'm pretty sure the cyborg part of Henshaw's face isn't meant to convey any kind of emotion but Perkins channels Henshaw's rage perfectly in his face. Always find a silver lining in the things you consume and with this issue of Green Lanterns its Mike Perkins' pencils. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Oct 3, 2018

    While all our characters are in place for our big showdown for the next and final issue of Green Lanterns, this issue was so forced to get us there that I had to roll my eyes reading it.  Hell, I don't even know why we're on our way back to Coast City for this, it doesn't seem to serve any purpose except for nostalgia and goes against what our villain seemed to want even at the beginning of this issue.
