    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Dec 13, 2017

    This is always a title that's at its best when the opposition is strong. Venditti is making the Controllers a significant problem and Twilight of the Guardians is shaping up to be another strong arc. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Dec 16, 2017

    Venditti, Van Sciver, Sandoval, Herbert, and company have really pulled together an incredible series with Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps. Venditti, Herbert, and Wright continue to make it compelling and exciting with #34. This comic is easily worthy of a read, and I highly recommend it. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd Dec 14, 2017

    Green Lanterns! Controllers! Guardians! The end of something is nigh, but not the excellence in this title. Venditti and the rotating art teams continue to provide one of the best titles in DC's output. The future of the Guardians and the Universe is at stake, leaving Earth's Green Lanterns to save the day again, but at what cost? Read Full Review

    Whenever anyone asks where to start with rebirth I almost always say Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps, this issue is a continuation of that excellence, nearly perfect in my opinion. Read Full Review

    Blog Of Oa - Myron Rumsey Dec 13, 2017

    Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #34 is yet another great installment of my favorite DC series. Robert Venditti and Jack Herbert turn in a strong issue which really makes the reader feel like it truly is the “Twilight of the Guardians”. I'm really looking forward to seeing where this one is going. Nine out of ten lanterns. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Dec 13, 2017

    Some late backstory and upfront Green Lantern hijinks make for an entertaining issue. The stellar art takes this book into another level. No stunted cover reveals this time, the interior pages really are a treat to see. Read Full Review

    Are you ready for another issue of buildup? No? Well, then I'm sorry but I have some news for you (but in all seriousness it wasn't the frustrating type of buildup, it simply is what it is). Read Full Review

    The Pop Break - Andrew Fontana Feb 3, 2018

    Sandoval's pencils make up for the lag in the issue's second half. It's hard to go wrong with several pages of Zod punching Green Lanterns when it looks this good. Sandoval captures the brutality of action while retaining the iconography that sets the violence of superhero comics apart. His art captures the wild creativity of the Green Lantern constructs and the sleek lines of kryptonian armor in intricate detail that never looks too busy. That's a feat in a book set in the Green Lantern corner of DC Comics. Read Full Review

    It's been a minute since I wanted to step back into the journeys and adventures of the Corps, but this creative team makes it easy to get excited about going back into the vast reaches of space. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Dec 17, 2017

    Hal Jordan and the Green Lanterns #34 was a well executed second chapter to the "Twilight of the Guardians" story arc. Robert Venditti was able to get across what the Controllers plot is and why that would mean even greater trouble for the DC Universe if they are successful. The darkness of the Controllers plot was nicely balanced out by how John Stewart, Hal Jordan, Kyle Rayner and Guy Gardner wasted no time in tracking the villains down. What happens next as both sides near a collision course should be a lot of fun. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Dec 19, 2017

    Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #34 is broken into basically two parts. Half the comic features the Controllers and the captive Guardians. The other half focuses on the primary Green Lanterns and their search for clues to where the Controllers have taken the Guardians and for what purpose. There's quite a bit of threatening, and lots of shots of the Lanterns flying around, but for now the villains' actions continue unabated. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Philip Schweier Dec 13, 2017

    n this story, the GLs behave less like beat cops and more like seasoned investigators. Through guile, subterfuge and plain old force of will, they piece together clues and follow leads that will hopefully reveal the Controllers plan. Read Full Review
