    By maintaining a focus on character with a large cast and expansive locales, Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps continues to be one of the best titles DC is currently publishing. It doesn't matter which Lantern is your favorite, this title builds chemistry between characters and provides new favorites, sometimes surprisingly. Read Full Review

    A mystery begins after a major action sequence. This could be the beginning of the end between the cooperating corps. Great issue. Read Full Review

    Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #22 is a fantastic start to another story arc for one of DC's best series.  While the action takes center stage there's plenty going on that builds on the foundation that Robert Venditti has laid, and with the fantastic art team of Ethan Van Sciver and Jason Wright the book looks amazing.  Nine out of ten lanterns.

    It's always a pleasure to see Ethan Van Sciver back on the Green Lantern titles. His art elevates the entire series, and even an opening chapter of a new story feels like an epic thanks to the level of detail and craft in Van Sciver's work. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Jun 24, 2017

    Filled with action, Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #22 proves to e quite enjoyable seeing the two corps work together. Here's hoping the villain's threat doesn't destroy an interesting new direction for the characters. There are a couple of smaller plot threads here worth noting. The first involves the future of Soranik Natu and the worst Green Lantern ever, who before their relationship even starts is trying to pressure her to make a major change. The second is the sudden loss of focus by Tomar-Tu which proves to be the only issue with the corps' response. As to what may have caused the issue, what Sora's response will be, and truth behind the bombshell the villain drops to John Stewart, we'll just have to wait and see. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Oz Longworth Jun 16, 2017

    Bottom Line: This new story arc seems to be serving the purpose of keeping the new status quo meaningful and interesting. It's just this carousel of artists that ranges from "outstanding" to "not terrible" to "30 pages of misshapen American Horror Story characters" is getting a little tiresome. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Jun 14, 2017

    A pretty entertaining issue that's the opening salvo to a new story arc. Not a whole lot more to say without giving it away, except that with Ethan Van Sciver at the lead, it all looks correct. Might be a good time to jump on the series, if you're so inclined. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Hussein Wasiti Jun 14, 2017

    Despite it's weirdly stuttering start, Venditti told a smaller scale story which I think this series needs more of. Ethan Van Sciver's art is the cherry on top, and the cliffhanger got me really excited for what's to come. Read Full Review

    The art continues to be sharp and superb the whole team working so each page, each panel even really stands out the way a Lantern comic should. Read Full Review

    Ethan Van Sciver was great on art as per usual, given that we haven't seen him on this series for quite some time this issue looked more polished and refined than previous chapters. Even though I adore the amount of detail that Van Sciver puts into each page, I could have done with a one less splash page, still impressive but to many can be sensory overload. Overall a great return for Van Sciver on pencils. I had some problems with the overall narrative of this series but this issue by in large was good. Read Full Review

    The GCRN - Dan Clark Jun 16, 2017

    It was a welcome to see these Lanterns facing off against more than themselves. The differing color Lanterns idea has become stale at this point so anytime the focus is on a different villain it is a breath a fresh air. Read Full Review

    Even with the inevitable conclusion to this overall story looming in every interaction, it is still worth reading. The artwork is always great from Van Sciver and the plot is interesting enough to keep me interested in the next part. Read Full Review

    You never have to look far if you want to see some gorgeous art. Consistently, this book has dulled out page after page of just beauty. The plot was light for the most part, felt almost Guardians of the Galaxy like. There is a twist at the end, that it worth reading to find out. Next week we let's play a game of "who dunnnit."
