    After last issue's sideways move into the Metal tie-in, issue #33 gets back on track as the themes that have been building in recent issues get some attention as the larger story moves the Green Lanterns and Guardians into the next phase as they face an old foe in the Controllers who appear to be making trouble for several issues.

    SciFiPulse - Patrick Hayes Dec 2, 2017

    A new hero revels in her abilities, while some infamous characters return to the DC Universe. The story is excellent and the visuals capture the joys and the horrors splendidly. This series continues to be a gem in the DC pantheon of comics. Read Full Review

    Hal Jordan and the Green Lanterns Corps #33 is a wonderful return after taking a couple of issues away from the title's ongoing story. While this installment is obviously designed to introduce the elements of the story, Robert Venditti infuses the issue with a great deal of heart and a sense of foreboding that makes me feel like this is a story that will have some impact on the direction of the book. I'm happy to see that the Templar Guardians have not been forgotten and that Venditti continues to draw inspiration from Green Lantern mythology. Coupled with great artwork by Jack Herbert, this one is an entertaining read. Nine out of ten lanterns. Read Full Review

    Twilight of the Guardians gets off to a good start. Venditti typically handles these big arcs well and with a worthy opponent for the Lanterns, this could be another very fun arc. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Nov 30, 2017

    Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #33 provides another great entry to the series. Between Jack Herberts incredible artwork and Vendittis endearing presentation of the characters, #33 really knocks it out the park this time. I highly recommend it; pick this one up. Read Full Review

    The only regular DC comic of the week, this issue slipped a week into the fifth week. It was worth the wait, though, as this is both a solid character-driven issue and a great kick-off to the next big Green Lantern storyline. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Cat Wyatt Nov 29, 2017

    Some of my favorite panels for this issue actually include some of the heavier conversation pieces; Ganthet and John taking about serious things while little Somar-Le is creating green zig-zags in the background is oddly evocative and striking. It really brought home that everything they've done is for the future (well, I can safely say that about John at least, maybe a little less so for the Guardians?). The close-ups during this scene are absolutely outstanding, Sayd looks striking, Ganthet regal, and John's eyes are so bright and green its borderline alarming. The time spent on their faces is really quite wonderful, and it may be spoiling me just a bit. Keep this up and I'll start expecting it all the time! Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Oz Longworth Dec 1, 2017

    For the most part, Venditti has found a formula that works, slight variations on the narrative to keep that formula fun and he's sticking to it. Put that together with a top shelf art and we have a fantastic book that justifies its price point consistently. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Gustavo S. Lodi Dec 4, 2017

    Despite being slower than usual to kick-off this new arc, issue #33 succeeds the most when focused on the human characters. Long-time fans of the Green Lantern mythos will be pleased with the main antagonists and certainly will return for more. Read Full Review

    IGN - Blair Marnell Nov 30, 2017

    The first thing you that may notice about this issue is the phenomenal artwork by rising star Jack Herbert, with industry veteran Tom Derenick lending an assist on the layouts. Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps has had the benefit of great artists since DC Rebirth began, and this simply continues the tradition. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Nov 29, 2017

    This issue should refresh the reader about the comic's status quo, after we had that two-parter with Superman and the one-off tie-in with Metal. Unfortunately, where we are in the world of the Green Lantern Corps seems really boring. Hopefully the thing advertised on the front cover will spice things up. Read Full Review

    Y'know, this would have been a great opportunity to tie the two GL books closer together, given Simon and Jessica's recent evacuation of another planet for a similar reason. Just sayin' Read Full Review
