What is Love? A Quick Dissection of the Relationship of Hal Jordan & Carol Ferris

 

It’s not often Carol Ferris is the star of an issue of Green Lantern. It’s not often that Hal Jordan spends a lot of time with her. These days he’s off being the great hero that he is and she’s…well, she’s whatever the latest writer wants her to be in that moment. Depending on what fan you talk to, that may be for the best or insanely frustrating. I’m pretty firmly on the latter side, however I want to take a look at the relationship between these two characters and put it under a microscope. How does it hold up compared to other hero/civilian relationships in the DCU? I’ll answer this question and some others that help me decipher these two characters, all while getting the opinions of comic creators to see where they land. Join us as I ramble on about your favorite test pilot and his boss.

REVIEW: Justice League #17

JUSTL_Cv17-Copy-e1549468762287-740x431

The Source Wall is broken. It’s scary to think about isn’t it? It’s not often when reading superhero comics that I find myself unnerved, but with this new era of Justice League I find myself feeling every more terrified as Synder inches further along in this grand epic of his. Yes Synder is writing big time superhero comics, but his horror roots are very present. Proving once again that cosmic horror is the creepiest kinda horror. As always this review will contain spoilers, so remember to read your comic before reading this review. You have been warned.

REVIEW: The Green Lantern #4

 

I’ve read superhero comics regularly since May 2006 and one of the first writers I latched onto was Grant Morrison. Talk about a deep dive into the weird right? One of the first rules I’ve learned is that a Grant Morrison comic can always become more absurd. If you thought the first three issues were insane, my friends we’ve only just started. Warning the following review will contain spoilers. You have been warned.

REVIEW: Heroes In Crisis #5

Here we are ladies and gentlemen, the official halfway point of this very controversial series. While I’ve praised the craft that both Tom King and Clay Mann have put forth, at this current juncture I’m left mixed on the series overall. I can see the story that King wants to convey with the most iconic characters in all of comics, but the cracks in the armor are starting to show just a tad. Perhaps this issue begins to turn the series around for me? Warning the following review will contain spoilers, so remember to read your comic before reading this review. You have been warned.

REVIEW: Justice League #16

JUSTL_Cv16~2

 

The previous issue of Justice League teased something huge. Now I won’t spoil that for you if you haven’t read it by now, but needless to say that Scott Synder has some major plans for how he wants to shape the DCU. Justice League #15 was only the tip of the iceberg and this issue is a full on crash into said iceberg. Warning the following review will contain spoilers. So remember to read your comic before reading this review. You have been warned.
