"QUEST FOR THE BLUE LANTERNS" part three! Guy Gardner sets out on a one-man mission to take out the one Sinestro Corps ring slinger everyone's afraid of: Arkillo! Can this Green Lantern with a grudge take down this monstrous alien and prove he's still the toughest guy in the cosmos to carry a power battery? As Guy's hope for a fair fight wanes, Hal Jordan and Kyle Rayner streak across the galaxy in a last-ditch effort to find Saint Walker of the Blue Lanterns and ensure that the blue light of hope isn't extinguished.

    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd Mar 8, 2017

    Despite being a no-holds barred, all fight issue, Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #16 is at it's heart a character driven issue. The inner Guy gets some attention and works in an element of sympathy for his character. If you love Guy, you'll love this issue, if you don't like Guy, this is still a special issue that makes an unlikable character sympathetic. Read Full Review

    I'll put it simply. Anyone who can convince me to be a Guy Gardner fan deserves a medal. Venditti and Sandoval are a match made in Oa. All this book does in win. Read Full Review

    This wasn't a groundbreaking issue this week, but easily recommended for Guy Gardner fans and those who want to see the Lanterns acting heroic without their hardware. Read Full Review

    A solid issue that gives some new backstory to Guy. The visuals are also top notch. If only the conclusion wasn't so predictable. Read Full Review

    GWW - Deron Generally Mar 8, 2017

    This issue is really well done. The story doesn't push too hard. It allows the characters to have purchase. The art is fantastic and viscerally beautiful without being gaudy or brutal for the sake of brutality. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Mar 11, 2017

    Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #16 did an excellent elevating Guy Gardner stature in this series. The fight Guy has with Arkillo was as brutal as was expected to be. Robert Venditti was able to do a great job balancing the brutality of the fight by giving us a further look into who Guy is and why he searched for the fight in the first place. Now with yet another major plot point in 'Quest For Hope' checked off it'll be time to learn what happens next for the Blue Lantern Corps. Read Full Review

    Green Lantern Corps - iggy Mar 8, 2017

    Guy Gardner has never been one of my favorite characters, let alone Green Lanterns. This issue made a fan of his confidence and borderline stupidity, he's the spice this series needs. My only real problem and it's a pretty minor one is how Saint Walker seemed oblivious to who Guy was. I'm sure there is a story reason for it, but it still irked me a bit. Read Full Review

    Blog Of Oa - Myron Rumsey Mar 8, 2017

    Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #16 may be nearly devoid of plot advancement but the issue is rich as a character driven action piece.  Readers who may have never understood what makes Guy Gardner tick or appreciated his tragic past will see him in a whole new light while long time fans will be reminded why he was chosen as Hal Jordan's back up in the first place.  Eight out of ten lanterns.

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Mar 8, 2017

    There's some good character development for Guy Gardner in this issue, handled expertly in terms of plotting and art. This was my favorite issue of Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps in recent memory, and I think it had to do with it not pulling my attention to other plots the whole time. Keep it up, we could use some more development for our otherwise one-dimensional Lantern crew. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - husseinwasiti Mar 8, 2017

    Despite its flaws, the third instalment of the Quest for Hope storyline fleshes out the universe more while reuniting former friends. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Mar 9, 2017

    But if a bit overly preoccupied with violence, this issue at least uses it as a means of exploring Guy's troubled psychology and the childhood of abuse that forged him into them man he is today. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Mar 9, 2017

    The outcome of the fight leaves Guy in bad shape and leaves the Green Lantern Corps without one of their big guns for at least a little while. Pass. Read Full Review
