A good start to the new arc. My only nit-pick complaint is that I'm not crazy about the art. That aside, this storyline has great potential. I'm expecting each issue to get better and better as the storyline progresses!

I really enjoyed this first issue. I don't agree with the negative reviews it's been given. I'm a big Spawn fan, but I don't know anything about Witchblade. However, the issue was easy enough for me to follow. It has everything needed in a first issue: background info, set up and action. I'm looking forward to the next issue to see where it goes from here. The artwork was great too! If you like me more

This is definitely Seeley's best issue so far. We finally get some GL mythos connection with "Volthoom's ring." We also get the origin story of Jessica's anxiety disorder and nice artwork. I hope the momentum this issue brought to the series continues!

This is Seeley's best issue so far (in my humble opinion). Is it perfect? No, but soooo much better than what's come before! I've never been a fan of Cliquet's art and it doesn't add much to the story here. It's just "ok" in my view. I'm just happy this issue is a step in the right direction for the series.

This sucked. Booster Gold is more than some petulant child, but that's how he's portrayed here. He's supposed to be responsible with time. But he's not. At all. His plan actually doesn't make any sense. Why would he save Bruce's parents as a gift to a Bruce Wayne that would no longer exist after the timeline changed? And how would that Bruce Wayne learn the lesson of how important him becoming Bat more

Not a great issue, but much better than the past few! I like the artwork and the overall plot, just not the execution of the plot. Jessica making a deal with "Singularity Jain" to fight her internal demons - like it. Having it played out on a "robot planet" with a robot dad and baby - not so much. I think Seeley is trying too hard to make this series light-hearted and humorous. At times it borders more

This issue is ALL about the artwork. It's beautiful. I'd give the art a rating of 9. However, there's not much story here. Mogo brings the corp to himself and releasing Volthoom's mental hold on them. That's about it. Not much there. So, I'd give the story a 7. That gives this issue an 8 overall.

A nice conclusion to the "Rise of the Third Army" story arc and lead into the next - "Wrath of the First Lantern." Tomasi brings it all together very nicely. The only thing missing was Hal Jordan. The artwork was also very nice. "Rise of the Third Army" is a classic run in the Green Lantern mythos.
