    Black Nerd Problems - Oz Longworth Aug 10, 2017

    Bottom Line: This book has been strong for most of its run so far, but the return of Rafa Sandoval to the pencil is what it needed to get over the hump and get back to being a Top 5 DC book. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Corps - Justin Swenson Aug 9, 2017

    The flow of the issue is brilliant, the writing is on point, and the artwork is arguably my favorite out of all of the current titles right now. It's so well drawn and colored beautifully. Read Full Review

    Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #26 continues the series' excellence of quality as it sets the stage for its second year. Robert Venditti's script is engaging and fun while the art team continues to turn in excellent visuals. This looks to be the beginning of another great story arc is Venditti's great post-Rebirth run with some clear ties to DC's “Metal” event that shouldn't be overlooked. Nine out of ten lanterns.

    Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps shows no signs of slowing down, as this issue kicks off a new story arc that seems just as promising as Robert Venditti and Van Sciver's work on the last arc, "Fracture". Read Full Review

    Rafa Sandoval is solid. He has a clean style with a few edges and angles that add to the dynamism of Green Lanterns. I really enjoy reading a comic without any internal logical flaw, good art, and a strong plot. Read this! Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Hussein Wasiti Aug 9, 2017

    This book has seen an upsurge in quality with the entirety of the last arc, and this issue is no different. The story was engaging and fun, and the art was incredible. New Gods fans will want to check this out as well. Read Full Review

    This is a well-balanced story from start to finish that allows for the past arc to be referenced without sacrificing aspects of the new arc that are being established. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Aug 9, 2017

    This opening issue to a new story arc is pretty great, and makes me really excited for what's to come. Much of the good feeling can be attributed to the fantastic artwork, which sets a perfect tone for what looks to be a pretty bombastic story. Let's see what will happen together! Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Cameron Tevis Aug 9, 2017

    It's always hard to judge on the first issue of a new arc because you never know which direction the story may go. But this issue successfully makes the reader want to find out more. Who is this enemy? How are the New Gods tied to it? How well will the Green Lantern Corps work with the New Gods, especially after such a recent and utter failure with the Sinestro Corps?

    Green Lantern Corps - iggy Aug 8, 2017

    While I'm extremely positive about this issue, at the end of the day it's still mostly set up for what's to come. All in all, really enjoyed it from start to finish. I'm personally looking forward to some New God action! Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Aug 9, 2017

    With New Gods back and the arrival of a deadly Omega Beam shooting enemy, the Corps are going to be busy. Fall of the Gods looks to have a lot of potential without a letup from the previous stellar arc. Read Full Review

    Nerd Church Radio - Ariel DuPey Aug 9, 2017

    The beginning did a good job with having a buffer from the events of the last arc into a new story line. I will say that Hitch has me very weary of anything resembling a big bad monster now, but Venditti is an amazing writer and I'm sure this big bad will have more depth then we've seen in the Justice League runs. I do wonder if this book is connected to Batman Metal?? Read Full Review

    IGN - Blair Marnell Aug 10, 2017

    This isn't Venditti's strongest outing, as his leads have some very out-of-character moments while declaring their friendship for each other. It's very on-the-nose, and Venditti's take on one of the classic New Gods doesn't even seem like the character that we've seen before. Read Full Review
