And after that, it's Hal Jordan versus the Cyborg Superman for all the marbles in the heart of Coast City! You might recall that the last time Cyborg Superman visited that town, things did not turn out well...

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Oct 31, 2019

    Green Lanterns ends well enough in that it closes up the current storyline and sets a few things into place for the next team to pick up without having to really deal with it. With this being the wide team book we got to cover a lot of different characters and that worked well. While I grew up reading about Hal he became someone I was glad to have moved to the background to explore other characters more. His time here is decently used but everything feels as though it's being done in shorthand rather than fully fleshed out. But, in the end, it just wraps up the current story and only sets Jessica on her own path beyond that, leaving it feeling a bit hollow unfortunately. Read Full Review

    On one hand,there is no extended epilogue, which I often find to be overly drawn out. Onthe other hand, with so many story elements involved, perhaps this issue neededit. It seemed a wee bit abbreviated at the end. Read Full Review

    Overall this is a fitting end to a series that needed some time to find its rhythm but ultimately provided a delightful journey for two relatable heroes. Read Full Review

    Big things are on the horizon for the Corps, but Green Lanterns #57 keeps it all (relatively) grounded to finish out this volume. Read Full Review

    GREEN LANTERNS #57 ends "Evil's Might" with a final battle in Coast City. Dan Jurgens and co. create a solid ending, but the whole story seems to have missed the point of the book. Read Full Review

    I enjoyed Perkins' art in this issue as well. There are some great action scenes in it and the fight between Hal and Henshaw is amazing. Perkins does a great job of utilizing and rendering The Phantom Ring and there are some exciting and tense moments in the story that looks great. Read Full Review

    Blog Of Oa - Myron Rumsey Oct 17, 2018

    Green Lanterns #57 is a fairly satisfying conclusion to the series, although fans who bought into the book based on the interpersonal dynamics between the two co-stars may be disappointed that they do not have much interaction here. Dan Jurgens ties the story up in a neat little bow perhaps a little too conveniently for my tastes. Read Full Review

    One of DC's most original books in years, Green Lanterns #57 closes out the series with an arc that was unfortunately all too ordinary. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Oct 17, 2018

    While you get amazing art and colors in this issue and a fight that looks great, this ending doesn't do much but leave things ambiguous for certain characters, while ushering others off to new adventures, while establishing the new status quo going forward.  It feels rushed and our villain never felt right in this arc and nothing about him is ever really resolved.

    Comic Book Corps - Anthony Thornton Oct 17, 2018

    Green Lanterns #57 suffered, in a lot of ways, from being too short. Even another 5 pages could have helped out a lot. Instead of an epic victory lap to end it all, it was a dead sprint to the finish line, and it just fell flat. The high points of the whole issue were 100% in the artwork. Green Lanterns has always been a visually beautiful title, and that continued through to the end, thanks to Mike Perkins and Hi-Fi. Still, even that lost a bit of the storytelling flow because of the sprint. Let me be clear, Dan Jurgens story isn't bad at all. It just wasn't the return to Coast City it could have been, nor the ending the Lanterns (nor its readers) deserved. Read Full Review

    Green Lanterns #57, The End, closes out this series with a bang! But that bang feels like a magician using slight of hand to distract you from the real magic of this series. Read Full Review

    This was average, but it's such a waste too. They basically made this another Hal Jordan book for the final arc, meaning that we really didn't get our last goodbyes with the Green Lanterns we've been focusing on for the majority of the run. And that blows. This issue felt rushed when other issues in this arc felt like they were purposefully avoiding plot progression. Pacing during this arc was just awful. And just how many times did Hal mention Cyborg Superman couldn't control his ring in these last few issues? I think it was more times than what was appropriate...

    Realistically this should have ended back when Sam Humphries left, a mess of different writers ruined what was once great and focused. Still, sad to see it go.

    For a Green Lanterns book, wasn't a fan of Hal being the main attraction basically but hey I understand why, just wish they changed it. Digging the art! Jurgens had to finish the battle with Ravengers, Cyborg Superman, aftermath, set up the Hal Jordan book, and set up Jessica going off in the Odyssey book. Unfortunately this story needs one more issue, maybe then it wouldn't have been rushed and forced in some parts, while asking self few questions. Like so how are Jessica and Simon going to recharge their rings because as far as the reader knows, they still share a battery.

    for a book that once had such great art... it's sad to see it go so badly. I guess once they knew they were going to end it, everyone just stopped trying.

    from a base of 6, this gets a rating of: 4.
    -1 because: the art was distractingly bad.
    -1 because: used to have good art.. has had some really good stories. now its over

    Remember when this title had a unique angle, and wasn't about Jurgens using his pet villain?

    Where to start? I hate the deus ex machina Lanterns coming to the rescue. I hate the lack of climax and resolution regarding Cyborg Superman. Eon's escape off screen is total bullshit. The guardians pull a Snowball V/Armin Tamzarian with the planet Oa. All to segue into Morrison's upcoming run and to conclude the Vendetti's run on Green Lantern Corps... which is a different comic! The whole point of this series was to give shine to Simon Baz and Jessica Cruz, but they spend the last arc fading into the background, undoing what little character development there was for Simon Baz (regarding his gun), and "curing" Jessica Cruz of her anxiety. What an F you to those of us that actually manage an anxiety disorder. Eat shit DC.

    And lo more
