    Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #30 is a fun story which introduces the next plot while simultaneously reconnecting the series to the greater DC Universe and laying the groundwork for the return of the Green Lanterns' greatest enemy. While clearly a setup issue the book is entertaining and features some great visuals from guest artist Pat Zircher. Nine out of ten lanterns. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Oct 15, 2017

    While I do feel for those who may be reading this book more for John Stewart, Guy Gardner, or Kyle Rayner, Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #30 brings another issue of exactly what I hoped for from this book. It has action, humor, and excitement in the classic Green Lantern fashion. I highly recommend this issue, and once again plead with you, if you havent already, pick this book up. Read Full Review

    This is a brief interlude, but what a pleasant one it was. I like these smaller stories and it also benefits from actually continuing a story set up in another book. More Zircher art is something we all need and he gets to shine in this issue. Read Full Review

    There's never a dull moment in Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps. Just when you think you've got it figured out, there's a twist in the tale. Bring on Hector Hammond! Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Oct 11, 2017

    The big payoff for this issue re-introduces another Silver Age throwback. Im excited about the prospect of Hal tangling with this opponent again especially since this is a different power set from other adversaries. With such a huge cast, its fun to see Hal get the solo spotlight every so often and this adventure looks like it will pack a ton of classic goodness. Read Full Review

    Green Lantern Corps - iggy Oct 11, 2017

    Patrick Zircher comes on as the guest artist for this issue and I love his art style and it fit perfectly when you factor in the context of the issue. Yes when you look at Zircher's art it has a classic feel to it, so when Superman warps into Parallax the effect that is intended is more potent. While Zircher won't be considered the flashiest among current artists working today but his storytelling is top notch, even during chaotic fight scenes between Hal and Superlax (dumb name but I needed something) read smoothly.

    Comic Book Bin - Philip Schweier Oct 11, 2017

    Although, with Hal back on Earth (however temporarily), we should probably expect to seehim hook up with the current GLs of 2814, Simon Baz and Jessica Cruz. It would tie the two books more closely together, and the DCU as well. Unless this all takes place during their recent visit to the past. Read Full Review

    Mostly a perfectly serviceable and gorgeous issue that could have used just a little bit more spice to the narrative. Still a fun read worth your three bucks. Read Full Review

    IGN - Blair Marnell Oct 12, 2017

    This is a very strong issue, but it's still carried by the art. Because of that, Zircher is welcome to stay on this title for as long as we can have him. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Oct 11, 2017

    A visually-thrilling issue whose best qualities are contained in the character work, especially between Hal Jordan and Superman. Ah well. Talking heads can still be visually-thrilling. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Paul Smerdon Oct 12, 2017

    I enjoyed the clear art which showed some amazing fight scenes. The story had enough information for me as a new reader to jump on board and understand what the hell was going on. Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Charlie Chipman Oct 11, 2017

    While I wouldn't say that Hal Jordan and The Green Lantern Corps #30 falsely advertises what's found on its pages, I will say that the issue may leave some readers feeling swindled. Despite this, Hal Jordan and The Green Lantern Corps #30 is a well-written, well-illustrated book worth reading. Read Full Review

    Great visuals can't really sustain a one note story that fails to get interesting the further along it goes. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Oct 16, 2017

    The best part of the comic, however, comes early on with the good-natured rivalry between Hal Jordan, Guy Gardner, and (the worst Green Lantern ever) Kyle Rayner jockeying for position to be the one John Stewart chooses for the mission to Earth. Hal gets the job, much to the dismay of his fellow Lanterns. Suck it, Kyle. For fans. Read Full Review

    Good looking book with a fun scene or two, but much of this is biding its time for the next issue with senseless fighting. Read Full Review
