    It's Zod and family facing the Green Lantern Corps, he's not just a Superman villain anymore! The art is extremely impressive and beautiful, and the new status quo for the Guardians is rife with possibilities. It's hard to go wrong with any issue of Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps.

    SciFiPulse - Patrick Hayes Jan 28, 2018

    This series continues to impress, now with Hal encountering Superman's equal: Zod! The story is brilliant, with delicious dialogue from the Kryptonians, and the visuals as bright as a lantern's construct. If you don't like this, you don't like comics. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Rick Lopez Jan 24, 2018

    This arc looks to be another great story as well as a jumping on point for anyone wanting to read the title. Whether LCS or digital, this title is not to be missed as the Emerald Warriors find the willpower to overcome Zods might! Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Jan 28, 2018

    Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #37 art by Rafa Sandoval, Jordi Tarragona, and Tomeu MoreyVenditti once again delivers a phenomenal start to another arc with Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #37. The action is intense. The story flows quickly and organically. Theres no waiting for the big encounter; it happens within the first half of the comic. Its just a fun ride aided by a brilliant artistic team, and I highly recommend it. Give it a read. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Jan 28, 2018

    Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #37 is an excellent start to the "Zod Will" story arc. Robert Venditti did not waste time in creating domineering threat that won't be simply overcome by punching harder in the form of General Zod and his House of Zod. Alongside that Venditti was able to build on the new status quo of the Guardians returning to their old post and showing how the Green Lantern Corps won't just bow their heads like they did in the past. If you're a Green Lantern Corps fan this is yet another story that you will not want to miss out on from Venditti's incredible run. Read Full Review

    Blog Of Oa - Myron Rumsey Jan 28, 2018

    Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #37 is the opening salvo between the Green Lantern Corps and the House of Zod and if this issue is any indication of what to expect over the course of the next four issues readers are in for a real treat. This one is wall to wall action and while it's a quick read it certainly packs a punch, or two or three! Nine out of ten lanterns. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Jan 24, 2018

    This issue is a pretty quick read but it begins with a resolution to a dangling thread from last issue and ends with a thrilling slobber knocker that looks amazing. This feels like great comics. Here's a place to hop on if you've been waiting in the wings. Read Full Review

    Green Lantern Corps - iggy Jan 24, 2018

    This arc started off with a bang, and for the first time I ever I have no idea what Zod's plan actually is. Who knows, perhaps Kyle and Hal are being unreasonable. However it was the final page that sold me on the rest of this arc, Zod lifting up the broken body of Hal Jordan as he proclaims that his campaign will begin. The idea of seeing Zod challenge every single member of the Green Lantern Corps has my body filled with goosebumps. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Jan 24, 2018

    Its nice to see Venditti still has some fresh ideas for the title and can keep mixing up the sparring partners for the lanterns. It will be very interesting to see how he makes a battle against a small Kryptonian army a fair fight for his heroes. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Jan 29, 2018

    The comic also offers a look-in to Oa where John Stewart considers resigning from the Corps now that the Guardians of the Universe have returned to lead. Convinced to stay, and prevent the Guardians from repeating mistakes of the past, does this foreshadow trouble ahead for Stewart and his fellow Lanterns? Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Cat Wyatt Jan 24, 2018

    The artwork was pretty decent for this issue " the blood from our beaten lanterns wasn't gory, but it was in large enough quantities for us to understand just how bad the situation was. And as always, we got some dramatic Green Lantern posing, which is fantastic. What really struck me though was the background for the first fight scene shown. It's so easy to forget that there are backgrounds when something major like a fight is occurring, so I'm really happy to see that the artists didn't overlook it here. The landscape and plants are so lush; it really adds an extra element to things, especially with the blood spattering over it. Read Full Review

    GREEN LANTERNS #37 finds the Guardians reforming with John Stewart as their conscience. It's a good thing too, as Hal and Kyle have discovered a new threat. Robert Venditti brings General Zod into the fray with a brutal introduction. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Jan 24, 2018

    Hal Jordan and the Green Lanterns #37 has a pretty solid story with some beautiful art. Hal and Kyle are going toe to toe with Zod while John has his own internal battle with giving the Guardians a second chance. All around this is a fun comic and a good jumping-on point for a new reader. The story arc is off to a solid start, and if the art stays this stellar, we are in for a ride. I like what is set up in this issue and will be coming back for more! Read Full Review

    Critical Blast - RJ Carter Jan 24, 2018

    It's unusual to have a uniquely Superman super-villain take the lead role in a multi-chapter story arc in another hero's title. It would be rather like seeing Superman match wits with The Riddler for four issues, or Wonder Woman take on Gorilla Grodd. Mind you, I'd pay good money for either of those stories, so "unusual" is a good thing, and with the diverse cosmology of the DC Universe, it even makes sense for the Green Lanterns to encounter rogue Kryptonians in deep space. And raise your hand if you're already wondering when Lor-Zod is going to go toe-to-toe with Jon Kent! Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Cameron McFarland Jan 25, 2018

    But, ultimately this issue is just anotherGreen Lantern book. We don't have much of an idea for what Zod is planning and we have a little bit of insight into John's current mood, but I didn't close this book with much excitement for what's to come next. Read Full Review

    "Hal Jordan and the Green Lanters" #37 shows promise in changing the recent pacing choices of this series, which were becoming stale. The high standard seen on illustrations and colors are certainly a backbone of this issue, which delivers on action, challenges and internal disputes. Read Full Review
