    Innocents Lost is another exciting chapter in the Hal Jordan series. This is high level quality Green Lantern action and this title continues to be a Rebirth standout. Read Full Review

    Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #3 really shows the reader that the group are completely outgunned. And the writers do so by completely defeating Hal Jordan himself. Broken and beaten, he's overwhelmed by Sinestro's army. It looks like the writers are breaking the character down before they build him back up again. It's quickly becoming one of the more entertaining titles from DC Comics. The only thing we will say, is that it's time for Hal Jordan to be reunited with his Green Lanterns. Read Full Review

    Rafa Sandoval needs to draw Green Lantern books forever. This may be the most menacing Sinestro ever drawn, and Hal getting crushed by a yellow octopus construct is a thing of beauty. Read Full Review

    Whatever the case, it appears Hal is going to need some help to take down the Sinestro Corps. But how long before the rest of the Green Lantern Corps is back in action? Worth a look. Read Full Review

    When you throw in Sinestro and a cliffhanger ending to go with these frenetic, energetic art and colors, you've got yourself a little piece of classic DC Comics heaven. Read Full Review

    An enjoyable read. And very much worth the $3 plus tax. Read Full Review

    Green Lantern Corps - iggy Aug 25, 2016

    On a minor note, I did enjoy that Venditti is making the effort to make the Sinestro Corps grunts actually feel formidable. Sandoval's page where Hal overcomes a seemingly endless sea of yellow tentacles, only to be overwhelmed by fear. Which all circles back to how I started this review that Venditti is demonstrating that not even the lone will power of Hal Jordan can overcome the growing fear in the universe. It gives reasons why the Green Lanterns need to reunite and reinforces the concept that we are stronger together. I still have problems with the pacing but I am enjoying this series, and the art being amazing and consistent is a big reason why. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Oz Longworth Aug 26, 2016

    Although the action is as satisfying as it was in the last issue, Hal Jordan is, true to form, becoming a bit of a spotlight hog and it's taking away from the story a little bit. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - John White Aug 24, 2016

    It’s hard to find a vault with an issue that is all action from the first panel. The story is advanced by a great degree and we finally are let in on some of Sinestro’s background machinations that assisted in his ascension to power. Although it would have been nice to spend more time exploring the situation of the rest of the Corps, I am sure this will addressed in forthcoming issues in a monumental fashion. Vendtti’s writing and Sandoval’s art make this both an entertaining read and a stunning piece or literary art, and something that any fan would be happy to have on their pull list. Read Full Review

    Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #3 is another stellar chapter in what is my favorite book from DC Comics coming out of Rebirth.  This issue has secret plots, high octane action and heroism on a cosmic scale plus artwork that is out of this world.  While the focus is a little unbalanced this issue is still a great read.  Four out of five lanterns.

    Summer is almost over, but we're still in re-runs where this comic book is concerned. If you liked the last issue, this one follows its formula almost exactly. There's a development with the Sinestro Corps rings, and a revelation concerning Sinestro that largely falls flat, but it's still basically the same issue. The awesome artwork by Sandoval and team may be all that saves this comic book from being birdcage liner. Read Full Review

    Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps has been fairly serviceable as a comic so far. Albeit this is another comic that's essentially an extended fight scene continuing from the previous issue. Read Full Review

    Flickering Myth - Tony Black Aug 27, 2016

    While Rafa Sandoval's explosive, colourful panels reflect the galactic, operatic nature of the comic, Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps still feels like it's missing something, or perhaps even dragging out a story which could have been told much more quickly and economically. That's happening, admittedly, on several runs in the Rebirth within DC, but often they have the strong character depth to back it up – sadly, Venditti's run here simply doesn't, and it makes the whole endeavour feel frivolous and a bit hollow. It may be worth exploring where this opening arc ends ultimately but beyond that? The jury remains out. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Jordan Richards Aug 24, 2016

    While certainly nowhere near as decompressed as the last issue, the latest issue of Green Lantern Corps leaves so much to be desired. It feels like there is so little happening in the series every issue. We meet a new character, learn of a new weapon, and then we get the standard shocking cliffhanger. That's really it.

    Nerdophiles - Jackson Adams Aug 31, 2016

    More than most of DC's properties, Green Lantern has taken a back-to-basics approach in the wake of DC Rebirth and that's understandable but it still needs to find a way to tell compelling story with its characters and it's just not doing that. I'm as up for a smackdown between the Sinestro Corps and a bunch of poozers as anybody but Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #3 feels like an issue I already read a decade ago, done fresher and better then.
