    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Sep 16, 2016

    Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #4 is another strong issue in what is one of DC Comics best series. Robert Venditti continues to do everything in his writing power to make everything going on in his story feel larger to life. Even as he gives us an issue with almost no action scenes Venditti keeps your interest with how great character work for Sinestro, Guy Gardner, Soranik and John Stewart. All of this character work moved the overall story forward to make the reader look forward to the war between the Green Lantern and Sinestro Corps. Add in Ethan Van Sciver's phenomenal artwork and you have an issue and series that every Green Lantern fan should be buying. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - John White Sep 14, 2016

    Robert Venditti is at the top of his game in this issue, as is the art by Ethan Van Sciver. The combination of larger than life stories combined with awe inspiring art of galactic wonders and terrors continues to make this one of the best books currently put out by DC. As the action continues to rise in this arc, it is hard to not get excited about what is yet to come as it builds towards it’s eventual climax. Much like the Green Lantern Corps itself, this series is getting stronger in every issue I cannot wait to see what happens next. Read Full Review

    Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #4 is another spectacular chapter in one of the best books DC is publishing right now.  This series continues to build on itself towards what feels like a major event in the history of the Corps.  The book is blessed with one of the best art teams around and this time around it's Ethan Van Sciver providing some glorious eye candy.  Nine out of ten lanterns.

    Hal Jordan And The Green Lantern Corps #4 builds tension as it barrels toward the conclusion of the first arc and it gives some great character moments for both Sinestro and Guy Gardner. This book really feels like it's finding its rhythm. Read Full Review

    Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #4 is a substantial move forward in the storyline and sets the stage for a few promising plot threads. So far the book has been a pleasant reminder of why the corps matter, and why we love them so much. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Pablo Arriaga Sep 14, 2016

    Ethan Van Sciver is one of those artists who will be known to be 'the' Green Lantern artist. Well versed in what they're capable, tested through a fantastic Geoff Johns run and accustomed to the range in characters and the different types of Lanterns who create various styles of constructs depending on their personalities, Van Sciver alongside Jason Wright on colors continue to deliver gorgeous looking pages that you stop and admire. Showcasing in great half-page panels the entire might of Sinestro's power now that it contains the Parallax fear entity in him, a costume that shows him to be well above his corps and Warworld with its Fear Engine that is Frank Quietly inspired with Van Sciver's very own style injected into it. Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps is a much-needed continuation of what's been Venditti's great run, and necessary to a lackluster companion comic. Read Full Review

    Green Lantern Corps - iggy Sep 14, 2016

    While this needle didn't move the plot that much, there was enough progression to satisfy any reader, and honestly the real hook of this series is seeing Sinestro reattempt to retry his strict order policy that got him the boot the first time around, plus Van Sciver's pencils were on point as usual. While there hasn't been that much centered on the actual Green Lanterns, I'm sure that Venditti is drawing that moment out so when they all do reunite it's something special but for now I'll enjoy Sinestro dominating the universe for as long as I can.

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Sep 14, 2016

    After three issues of running in place, this book takes off like Shaggy and Scooby-Doo to find a Scooby Snack. Wait, that's a terrible analogy. What I mean to say is that this issue has more interactions between core characters, and I believe it makes all the difference. You get a good look at Sinestro's style of rule, and it's not very cool. If you weren't sold on the art to begin with, then get your eyes checked. I hope this good time Green Lantern Corps train can keep rollin'! Read Full Review

    Even with the comic missing its headline star, there's still enough here for fans of Guy Gardner to pick up this issue as his appearance allows Sinestro to give us a few clues to the villain's plan for his Corps and the universe. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Flickering Myth - Tony Black Oct 4, 2016

    Beyond that, as Hal undergoes his own trial and John Stewart–the defacto Lantern leader–debates whether or not he needs to throw Guy-like caution to the wind, there is plenty starting to go on in Hal Jordan & the Green Lantern Corps to make this stop startfirst run of the comic engage more of the latter than the former. Let's hope we can now build to a strong finish. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Dennis Mui Sep 20, 2016

    Overall, HAL JORDAN AND THE GREEN LANTERN CORPS #4 is a solid addition to the series. The issue opens the door for the Green Lantern Corps to reveal themselves to the public. More importantly, steps are being made for the return of Hal Jordan to join the Corps and confront Sinestro. The Green Lantern Corps has never been weaker while the Sinestro Corps has never been stronger. Tensions are high and the buildup to a war keeps me wanting more. Read Full Review
