    Big villains! A-list team up! Action! But, it all comes down to one man's love for a woman that makes this a standout issue. Perhaps, someday Hal and Carol will find happiness together. Read Full Review

    Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #31 is the conclusion to a very short arc, but the action and heart packed into this conclusion results in a great reading experience. Putting the spotlight on Hal Jordan reminds us of why he's the iconic character he is and leaves me wishing there was more time for this kind of story in a series with a cast that's bursting at the seams. Pat Zircher does a fine job supporting Robert Venditti's wonderful script making this a very satisfying conclusion. Nine out of ten lanterns. Read Full Review

    HAL JORDAN AND THE GREEN LANTERN CORPS #31 ends "Mind Games" with a battle of wills and a question of desire. Robert Vendritti writes a story with equal amounts action and self-questioning. Artists Patrick Zircher and Jason Wright follow along with Ivan Reis-esque art. Read Full Review

    I hope Zircher and Wright never get taken off this title. Their art is incredible! The detail, the colors, its all perfect and logically follows the flow of the book. Pick this title up its definitely worth it. Read Full Review

    This series tends to get the most out of Ethan Van Sciver and Rafa Sandoval on art, but Patrick Zircher has made a very strong showing for himself in the last two issues. Zircher's classic style suits Green Lantern well, and he draws a really terrific Superman as well. Read Full Review

    Well done DC for making me think more about how people not just Super Heroes can lose their way Read Full Review

    Honestly this issue and the previous issue was a nice two part story that provided more story depth than I was anticipating. Most comics end on a happy note, but seeing Hal with flowers almost talk to Carol again, but ultimately couldn't due to work perfectly sums up the life that Hal leads and why he and Carol won't be together for some time. Hal Jordan greatest Green Lantern, horrible love life. If you've been hankering for a short Hal Jordan story read this issue and the previous one. Read Full Review

    In every way, this felt like a fun Silver Age throwback. Venditti didnt drag out the story and allowed for an enjoyable team-up, a quickly disposed enemy and some plot threads worth revisiting later. While it wasnt the most memorable two issues of this run, it was well worth checking out. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Philip Schweier Oct 25, 2017

    Artist Patrick Zircher continues to channel Gil Kane, while maintaining his own style. Perhaps Jason Wrights colors contribute to keeping Zirchers work from being acopy - or homage, if you prefer. Regardless, Zirchers work is perhaps more textured than Kanes was, but much of the figure drawing is consistent. No sin there; theres only so much any artist can do with the human body.

    Black Nerd Problems - Oz Longworth Oct 27, 2017

    The conflict felt a little here and gone, but it's obvious enough there's a larger scheme at work so it's forgivable. Even when the story's scale isn't massive, Venditti still knows how to deliver a fun read for three bucks. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Oct 25, 2017

    A fairly pithy story is enhanced by some nice visuals and strong character work. I like it when superheroes get along, so sue me. Not a bad couple of issues, a neat little story that expands Hal beyond the gung-ho jackass we normally get. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Oct 26, 2017

    This is easily one of the weaker issues of Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps, but that is a high standard by which to be compared. Robert Venditti and company have made a classic Green Lantern series with this book, and every series does have its weak links. This is still an enjoyable read, and I do recommend it, even if isnt particularly incredible. Read Full Review

    While light on the story front, the art really impressed me in the conclusion to this two-parter before the big METAL crossover. Read Full Review
