    While Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #28 only nudges the plot in the very slightest of ways, the beautifully touching character beats of Robert Venditti's script almost makes you forget that the fate of the New Gods are at stake. Frankly I think this is one of Venditti's best issues he's written since taken the reins from Geoff Johns. Some people might be turned off for the lack of appearance by the rest of the Green Lantern Corps, but the it does do an absolutely fantastic job of showcasing why the titular character has his name on the cover. Ten out of ten lanterns. Read Full Review

    Robert Venditti knocks it out of the park again with this issue! He is easily becoming my favorite writer in DC right now. This story is so well put together with no holes and no wtf moments. The flow of the story is so on point. Nothing moves too slowly and nothing moves too fast. The artwork is killer! Once again, there is not one lazy panel in this issue. There is so much detail and you can really see the amount of work that has gone into this title. This is what blows me away: If you read this story with no art, just words, it would suck you right in. If you looked at this story through only the art, and no words, it would suck you right in. Put the art and the words together and it is mind blowing! I truly think it is that amazing. A gigantic thumbs up to Venditti, Sandoval, and their entire team for this whole run. Definitely, without a shadow of doubt include this in your pull for the week. Absolutely brilliant. Read Full Review

    Deep breath! Highfather and Lightray, Martin Jordan and Hal Jordan " both show how the relationship between fathers and sons sometimes work. Whether it is a real interaction or a vision that Hal experiences, it is clear that his father is an important aspect in his life. Hal's life as a test pilot may in some ways seems dated, but his relationship to his father is something almost everyone can understand. Thanks, dad " 8th Air Force, 1944-1947. Read Full Review

    This issue works as a means of moving the story along in a tense and interesting way. Would have liked to get more information about the threat itself, but the reflective moments in the story work well with the frenetic art. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Oz Longworth Sep 15, 2017

    This book, much like its titular character, approaches everything in such a "kick ass first, take names later" way, it's nice to see that even in tense, high stakes moments, Robert Venditti finds a way to stop get a little emotional" even if it is in a big green fighter jet. Read Full Review

    I expect more from Venditti, and he usually delivers. But this time, Green Lantern's flight fell far short of what it should have been. Read Full Review

    Even though I deeply enjoyed Venditti digging into the conscious of Hal as he attempts to chase down a God. If you're a reader who wants the story to move forward, than this issue might be great in your eyes. I enjoyed what was done with this chapter, but I'm ready for the plot to actually move forward.

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Sep 17, 2017

    Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #28 provided minimal plot progression for the "Fall of the Gods" story arc. Robert Venditti sacrificed everything that has happened to make "Fall of the Gods" so intriguing to revisit an old character plot of Hal Jordan's father means to him. Hopefully the next issue of this series can help the story turn around after hitting a massive wall that slowed everything that happened in this story down to a dead stop. Read Full Review

    What if they threw a superhero race and nobody showed up? The whole issue is a race between Hal Jordan and Black Racer. If that strikes your fancy, you're in luck. Visuals are a definite treat. Read Full Review
