    You may not see a Guardian of the Universe cry, but you might believe he's human! After so many aspersions cast their way by Hal and his friends over the years for being "inhuman," this issue counters that notion with a heartfelt depiction of Ganthet as he urges his fellow Maltusians to reclaim their roles as Guardians of the Universe and leave a real legacy they can be proud of.

    Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #36 is an exciting and fun issue. Venditti and company continue to knock this series out the park, and it may very well be the best book out of DCs offerings. I highly recommend this issue, and you should definitely give it a read. Read Full Review

    Robert Vendittei's stories are so captivating and interesting. They are well thought out and never get boring. Each character is written into the story in their own unique and classic ways. Additionally, seeing these four Lanterns interact and work with each other in the same book is a real treat. Read Full Review

    Green Lantern Corps - iggy Jan 10, 2018

    Overall I really enjoyed this arc, it reintroduced a classic Green Lantern villain, plus this arc was a great team study between the four original Earth Lanterns. You combine that with Jack Herbert's amazing art then you have one helluva story from start to finish. Read Full Review

    The conclusion of the "Twilight of the Guardians" storyline in Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #36 brings explosive action, as always, but Venditti's really found his groove with the large group of characters he has to play with " especially the core four group of Lanterns.

    Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #36 provided a strong ending to "Twilight of the Guardians" arc. Robert Venditti got over the impact the Controllers return had to the entire Green Lantern franchise. Their return to prominence was the perfect way to also bring the Guardians of the Universe back into their original roles. How that goes over with all the changes that have happened within the Green Lantern franchise make this shift in the Guardians' status quo very intriguing. Read Full Review

    I loved the artwork for this issue, but I pretty much say that all the time for the Green Lantern series. To be fair, I am a big fan of bright colors, which is something the lantern series pretty much has to make liberal use of. They also excel at their dramatic poses, which is a huge plus if you ask me.

    Blog Of Oa - Myron Rumsey Jan 10, 2018

    Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #36 seems to do very little but actually accomplishes a lot by returning three elements back into Lantern lore. With the Controllers and their new toys back for the long haul and the Guardians establishing a new status quo for themselves there's a lot going on in this issue. Despite all the work to re-establish these elements there are some entertaining and action filled moments as well. Visually the book looks great if not a little understated. Read Full Review

    Though the end leaves the Guardians' new path a bit of a head-scratcher, Venditti still manages to crank out a mostly fun superhero swashbuckler. Read Full Review

    This was a well done conclusion to the arc, but it just felt a little short. I wanted to see more of a physical and personal reckoning for the Guardians. Read Full Review

    IGN - Blair Marnell Jan 11, 2018

    I appreciate the callback to the '90s era of DC's cosmic books that occurs in the final pages, but this story just wasn't very compelling. Only the art kept it interesting. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Hussein Wasiti Jan 10, 2018

    This book is such a beauty to behold, but it's relatively empty. This story was definitely stretched out, and the lack of tension and proper pacing is a big indication of this. Skip this issue if you're buying. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Jan 10, 2018

    This issue is almost identical to the previous one, except for the very end, where the Guardians assume responsibility for the Green Lantern Corps again. Did I just spoil the ending to the book? Now you can skip it. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Philip Schweier Jan 10, 2018

    Overall, this issue was a disappointment from the first page. Maybe if I read all thechapters in one sitting, Ill feel better about the story as a whole. But this is the pitfall of reviewing serialized fiction - its difficult to assess theentire project when its being fed to you in bite-sized pieces. Read Full Review
