    AiPT! - David Brooke Nov 23, 2016

    If you like Green Lantern, or used to read the series at all, you must buy this book. Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps is a showstopper of a series that shouldn't be missed. There's plenty of action, mystery, and science fiction goodness to make this worthy of anyone's pull list. Read Full Review

    Blog Of Oa - Myron Rumsey Nov 23, 2016

    Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #9 is another excellent chapter in one of DC's best series post-Rebirth.  Robert Venditti's script has a lot of action and great character moments which more than make up for the slight advancement of the overall plot, and Rafa Sandoval's art is just the icing on the cake.  Nine out of ten lanterns, er F-Sharp Bells!

    Robert Venditti creates a nice sense of scale as the resurgent Green Lanterns find themselves simultaneously liberating a planet and battling Brainiac. He's ably assisted by Rafa Sandoval, who delivers a nonstop dose of sweeping battles and powerful, dynamic figures. Read Full Review

    Venditti does a great job of shifting the focus over to the rest of the Corps in this story arc, raising the stakes even higher just like he did in the issue before. Brilliant. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Dennis Mui Nov 23, 2016

    HAL JORDAN AND THE GREEN LANTERN CORPS #9 combines good storytelling by Venditti with strategic art from Tarragona and Sandoval. Though the Green Lantern Corps part of the story may not be for every reader, the Hal Jordan storyline is sure to excite most with the return of Ganthet and Sayd. There are also some old friends who reappear in this issue and they should play a large part in HAL JORDAN AND THE GREEN LANTERN CORPS #10. I won't spoil who they are here, so you'll have to pick this issue up and find out for yourself! Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - John White Nov 22, 2016

    With the return of multiple fan favorites, including the character that carried all Green Lantern series for so long, Robert Venditti proves that he is not done with using all the history of the Green Lantern to create stories that will please longtime fans and newcomers alike. His writing remains near perfect, as each character as allowed just enough dialogue to express their personality but not too much that they overshadow the book. The art and colors of Rafa Sandoval and Tomeu Morey continue to elevate this series above the many releases every week and establish it as one of the premier books on the market today.

    Another fine issue as this space opera continues to expand and bring more surprises. It seemed like the journey was over last issue, but it is clear there isn't a clear ending in mind as new possibilities continue to pop up, much to my surprise and pleasure. Read Full Review

    SciFiPulse - Patrick Hayes Dec 5, 2016

    The final line: I'd prefer this book to be Hal Jordan with the Green Lantern Corps, because his not being with them seems to be leading this book into the recent past. The Corps is great, but without Hal alongside this is only an average tale. Read Full Review

    Otherwise I have really enjoyed learning about John Stewart,Guy Garner, and Soranik. Vendetti is doing a good job of showing us who thesepeople are through their interactions with each other. I'm really excited forKyle Ranyer to get that same treatment in the coming issues. Overall, I would recommendthis story if you're into Green Lanterns books. It's a lot of fun for me and it'sdefinitely worth the $3.99 you pay for it. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Nov 29, 2016

    As expected, the death of Hal Jordan has been greatly exaggerated. Although I'm not excited to see the introduction of Kyle Rayner into the story, I'm up for anything to get Hal back into action. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Nov 23, 2016

    A fairly mediocre issue that moves some puzzle pieces incrementally closer to completing a full picture. But as it is, we're still getting a fractured story where protagonists aren't even aware of one another's existences--protagonists who are named in the title of the series, mind you. The art is great, and Rot Lop Fan is in this issue, so that's something to celebrate. But the story is just plodding along, and I fear we may be staring down the barrel of another bloated seven-issue story arc. I hope I am wrong! Read Full Review

    Despite the fact that this issue was the second part of an arc, despite the fact this issue continued the breakneck pace it definitely felt most like a breather issue. Sandoval's art was still good, not as great as previous issue but still very consistent and beautiful to look at. Overall still a fun part to a fun series. Read Full Review
