This. Is. It! It's an extra-sized anniversary celebration, and one of the biggest battles the Green Lantern Corps has ever fought to mark the occasion. John Stewart issues a dramatic order: no lethal force! The Green Lanterns need to prove they can keep law and order in the universe without killing. Elsewhere, Hal Jordan faces down Tomar-Tu, and looks to use the Darkstars' armor as a weapon against them-with some psychic help from Hector Hammond (who probably shouldn't be trusted).

    Green Lantern Corps - iggy Aug 8, 2018

    I'm going to miss Venditti writing these characters, it's been five years since he joined the Green team and I'm glad that I was there to review a majority of his run. So if you're reading this, after you've read your comic please do me a favor and make the number 4 with your finger and raise to the sky. The Four Corpsmen ride on. Thank you Robert Venditti for this historic run on Green Lantern, and thank you Rafa Sandoval for the amazing art, you've made me a fan for life. Burn bright Lanterns. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Rick Lopez Aug 8, 2018

    The past couple years on this series with Venditti at the helm, after the departure of legendary writer Geoff Johns, truly brought this series back into readers pulls and discussions with this heartwarming space opera. Venditti and Sandoval will go down as yet another legendary team in the Green Lantern mythos, delivering fan-favorite stories for years to come. Read Full Review

    Blog Of Oa - Myron Rumsey Aug 8, 2018

    I'm really going to miss this series but what a great way to end Robert Venditti's run. Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #50 is a wonderful conclusion to the Venditti era and a fantastic end to the Darkstars saga. From script to art this one hits every beat perfectly. Read Full Review

    This final issue serves as a challenge to the next creative team, just as Robert Venditti's task of following Geoff Johns was a tough one, so too is the task now at hand of following him. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd Aug 8, 2018

    Well, we're finally here at the end of Robert Venditti's run on Hal Jordan and the end of this particular Green Lantern series. It's been a pleasure to review this book for the past few years. This has to be one of the best runs on Green Lantern, if not THE best. It has brought classic concepts back and yet pushed to concept further than ever before. It has explored intellectual and moral issues all while remaining entertaining and true to the characters. This final issue puts all the toys back in the box, and yet has left profound marks on characters and set a lofty standard for the next creative team. Read Full Review

    SciFiPulse - Patrick Hayes Aug 20, 2018

    The Lantern and Darkstar conflict concludes, as does this series. The battle is good, the dialogue outstanding, the visuals strong. I'm sorry to see this conclude and Venditti leave Hal, but one can be safe in the knowledge that this is not the end of the Green Lantern Corps' adventures. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Oz Longworth Aug 9, 2018

    Bottom Line: One would have to aim pretty high to expect a better wrap up to such a fun tenure from Venditti. You just can't argue with such a well paced, nuanced script in such a gorgeous book. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Aug 9, 2018

    Robert Venditti ended his run on a high note with Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #50. With the spotlight on Hal Jordan, John Stewart and Tomar-Tu, Venditti was able to deliver an ending that felt extremely rewarding. Adding in the standout artwork from Rafael Sandoval elevated how Venditti was able to end his run on the Green Lantern franchise with a fantastic final issue. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - John Jack Aug 14, 2018

    Sorry to see this series end, but nothing good lasts forever, the story continues in Dan Jurgens' Green Lanterns run (beginning with issue #50 out last month) and Hal will be appearing in Grant Morrison and Liam Sharpe's Green Lantern series beginning this November. Coool. I'm gonna miss Venditti, fingers crossed he gets my numerous tweets about a Guy Gardner/ Arkillo Team up mini, because I still want that. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Aug 8, 2018

    For fans of the series, this is a bittersweet finale. Venditti and Sandoval reached some massive heights with this title whether battling the Sinestro Corps, Starro, General Zod & family, the Controllers and the Darkstars. I'm looking forward to revisiting this run in collected trade format as it was one of my most consistent favorites. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Philip Schweier Aug 8, 2018

    One of thestrengths of this issue is its dialogue. Venditti is skillful at deliveringHals verbal sparring Tomar Tu, Johns exchanges with Zod, and Guys overallcomments. Together, they represent various facets of the two groups conflictingphilosophies toward achieving the same goal. Read Full Review

    GWW - Deron Generally Aug 8, 2018

    Sandoval's art is a standout in this issue and I truly enjoyed watching the progression of the panels in the story. They moved with the narrative and went a long way towards building on the tension in some moments and slowing down for emotional moments in others. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Dispatchdcu Aug 8, 2018

    Looking at just this issue, I was extremely disappointed. Venditti had an opportunity to wrap everything up within his 50 issue run, but he doesn't. Extra characters were dangled throughout the issue, as well as the entire arc, for pomp and circumstance. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Aug 8, 2018

    The big conclusion turns out to be a dud, as nothing of import happens except for concluding the final arc. An Absolute edition of this series might be worthwhile for the artwork alone. But in terms of narrative, this issue was a microcosm for the title as a whole: no real stakes, and a convenient conclusion that is unearned. What a shame. Read Full Review
