    The threads of the tapestry are being woven slowly, yet masterfully as plans don't seem to be coming together easily. While John may have succeeded in his mission, Hal and Kyle are in a world of trouble which should provide a high degree of drama as what comes next unfolds. There is no simple solution or answer. The Corps has attempted to make deals with devils and it seems like it's starting to backfire already. Will this be the end of the Green Lantern Corps? Read Full Review

    HAL JORDAN AND THE GREEN LANTERN CORPS #46 moves "Darkstar Rising" into the personal arena, as new Darkstar Guy Gardner goes after his abusive father. Robert Venditti gives Gardner a strong story to work with, but doesn't do quite as well with the rest of the cast. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Corps - Justin Swenson Jun 13, 2018

    We are seeing temporary alliances from characters who share, or potentially share, a common enemy, and it's flat out cool to see. From Stewart and Zod, to Jordan and Hammond, Robert Venditti has put together a marvelously interesting story, and I am so excited to see where he is going to take it. Read Full Review

    Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #46 is another rock solid issue that swerves the plot of "Darkstars Rising" in a couple of unexpected directions. There's plenty of personal drama in this one, particularly in Robert Venditti's strong script as it pertains to Guy Gardner's confrontation with his past. Nine out of ten lanterns. Read Full Review

    This detour has been a bold move, but it's worked. I'm hoping the eventual Darkstars war proves just as engaging even if I'm not in a rush for it to arrive. Read Full Review

    Hal Jordan and The Green Lantern Corps (2016-) #46 is the fifth issue in the Darkstars Rising story arc, and although we have been immersed in this story for some time, Hal Jordan and The Green Lantern Corps still feels fresh and exciting thanks to moments of great emotional intensity.

    Black Nerd Problems - Oz Longworth Jun 13, 2018

    Bottom Line: I believe I've said this before but I never thought I'd care this much about Guy Gardner. Venditti's puts together a highly convincing script that manages to set the stage for what promises to be a hell of an ultimate showdown. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Marcus Freeman Jun 13, 2018

    Guy Gardner's personal decision could have drastic consequences not only for himself, but also for the Green Lantern Corps and the universe as a whole. While John Stewart's recruiting trip has proved to be successful so far, Hal Jordan and Kyle Rayner are struggling to reign in their recruits. The Darkstars have the upper hand, but it is only a matter of time before the Green Lanterns take the fight to them, with or without the help they sought out. Read Full Review

    Even though the war moves at a slow pace, I am enjoying the small character moments that Venditti manages to sprinkle in despite the scale of this conflict. Another fine issue. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Cat Wyatt Jun 13, 2018

    This plot has been a never ending source of twists and turns and surprises. Every time it seems like the path is clear, something else is thrown in the way. Last issue we were shocked when Guy became a Darkstar, and this issue it's that Arkillo ran to stop Guy. What will be next? Read Full Review

    Tons of payoff for longtime readers of Green Lantern this issue, with a bunch of plot threads and callbacks present, not very new reader friendly but very rewarding for a fan. Amazing arc! Read Full Review

    The final arc of Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps has brought in elements from the entire run of the series, as the advent of the Darkstars has left the Green Lanterns fleeing to any corner of the universe where they might find an ally " including among former enemies. Read Full Review

    I like that this issue goes from the big themes of the last one to something smaller and more personal. It gives some great insight into the characters while providing some development. I've never been a fan of Guy Gardner, but this issue gave me the spark of thinking about him differently as a character. Henry's art is great as well and the details in his work help enhance each panel. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Jacob Robert Nuckolls Jun 18, 2018

    Despite some flat artwork, "Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corp #46" makes up for it by successfully mounting the tension of the Darkstar threat and providing the reader with several excellent character moments that demonstrate the core beliefs of the core and the individual characters we have come to love.

    This issue lacks the punch and immediacy of previous issues, but is still a fine read. The visuals are also not as strong; they work, but aren't as strong as what's come before. Lantern fans will be happy this, but others will probably be indifferent. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Jun 18, 2018

    Hal Jordan And The Green Lantern Corps #46 was a very good chapter that added more of a personal touch to the "Darkstars Rising" arc. Centering the story around Guy Gardner's origins how that motivates his first action as a member of the Darkstars made this a standout issue in the middle of this arc. Adding in what Hal Jordan, John Stewart and Kyle Rayner are doing makes things even more tense for whatever endgame Robert Venditti is building for "Darkstars Rising." If your a Green Lantern fan this is story that you should be checking out if you aren't already. Read Full Review

    The book has suffered from some really inconsistent art choices over the last few months, but Henry is one of the stronger artists to work on the series. His art meshes well with Pantazis' color work, giving the book a bright and unmuddied look that works well with the colorful characters (pun intended) in the series. Read Full Review

    Guy's dad gets his comeuppance, but good! Beyond that, everyone sort of stands around, shifting from foot to foot, waiting for the director to call the scene so they can head back to their trailers. There's some nice-looking pages here, but I think you can put a pin in it and pick things up in the next issue; the closing caption promises some actual action. Read Full Review

    The Rise ofthe Darkstars has not been the major story arc I was expecting. It hasntimpacted the whole of the DCU like Id hoped. Its like a musical note thatnever quite reaches its proper pitch, so Im ready to move on to the third act" the aforementioned battle. But wait " didnt the last major story arcconclude with a major battle? Yes, I believe it did. Read Full Review

    Welcome to the Oblivion Bar where the first round is on me and the pretzels are free! Be warned: like the pickled eggs at the bar, this issue is going to get SPOILED rotten.

    When we last left Hal and Pals, Guy and Arkillo were having a drink, Kyle and Space Cabbie went to New Genesis for help, John confronted Zod for help, and Hal broke out Hector “God Brain” Hammond for help. The issue ended with Guy becoming a Darkstar and flying off. Well, this issue picks up by showing us where Guy is going.

    We see Roland Gardner, Guy’s dad, standing outside the bar fighting the urge to go inside. He’s remembered all the times he beat up on his son and regrets every last one. Later, we find out that he’s been sober for r more

    Guy's hitting a new low and Hal looks like he got in over his head. Things aren't looking good for the Green Lanterns right now, and I love it. The last page has me cheering, hell yeah!
