REVIEW: Hal Jordan & The Green Lantern Corps #20

 

CONSEQUENCES! I realize that wasn’t a full sentence, but if that one line got your attention then I did my job for today. In all seriousness, one of the many aspects of why I still continue to read comics on a weekly basis (besides this site paying me a huge amount of cash, in fact I’m writing this from my yacht), but it’s the notion of dropping a hint of something and revisiting that concept at a later time. While it seems easy to pull off, I think it takes a good amount of skill to recall hints. Warning they’re will be spoilers going forward, you’ve been warned.

REVIEW: Green Lanterns #22

 

I want you (yes whoever is reading this) to stop for a second and remind yourself when you first started reading comics. You might read something that started off as mundane but then gave you a feeling that only comic books can deliver. It may be a trip across the multiverse, a trip to the past or the future, or a battle against some cosmic God you will always will remember the first a comic book took you on an adventure you’ll never forget. Keep that in mind, also as per usual there will be spoilers! you have been warned!

REVIEW: Hal Jordan & The Green Lantern Corps #19

 

HUBBA HUBBA HUBBA WHO DO YOU TRUST?! ME?! Okay now that I’ve gotten the Batman 89 reference out of my head, time travel is the one of the trickier aspects when writing in a shared universe. In most cases time travel is not done well and ultimately it gets forgotten the moment that particular story arc concludes. However when time travel within comics is done well, it can make readers beg to learn more about what might coming down the pipe. Now that a certain character has joined the GLC as of last issue it’ll be interesting to see if Venditti drops any future mention of things to come. Warning there will be spoilers going forward, read at your own risk.

REVIEW: Green Lanterns #21

 

For superheroes death is nothing but a revolving door, even the most heartfelt of death scenes ultimately seem trivial when in the back of reader’s minds they know the heroes will return in some fashion. However one aspect that isn’t treated like a joke is the death of supporting characters. Yes some of them do return but for the most part when a supporting character dies, they stay dead until the plot deems otherwise. What if we took this idea and looked at death from the villains perspective? Warning there will be spoilers, read your comic before reading further. You have been warned.

REVIEW: Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #18

 

I know I’m relatively young, but if there’s one thing I’ve learned when it comes to human beings is the sheer amount of animosity we can have when trusting another human. I understand that is a huge generalization but I believe that it’s a factor of life at this point. For some people it takes time to get over these preconceived notions and move forward in building a better society, one that well can enjoy for generations to come. There will be spoilers going forward, you’ve been warned. Read at your own risk.

REVIEW: Green Lanterns #20

 

Before reading this review, I want to you completely put yourself in a state of silence (unless your on public transit AND WHY ARE YOU READING OVER THIS PERSON’S SHOULDER YOU CREEP). Do you hear that voice? It may not be the loudest voice, but you constantly hear it, “You’re not good enough” or that voice questions each decision you make. Despite all the noise we create in today’s our own minds are what can be our greatest enemies. How does this factor into today’s issue of Green Lanterns? Read further on to find out. Warning there will be spoilers going forward. You’ve been warned.

Top 5 Things We Learned from Sam Humphries’ WonderCon Snapchat Takeover

I don’t believe you anyway. I’m stalling. Let’s get to this list of things Green Lanterns writer Sam Humphries spilled during his time running the DC Comics Snapchat at WonderCon this Saturday.

REVIEW: Green Lantern/Space Ghost Annual #1

 

Oh baby, when DC comics announced last year that characters from Hanna-Barbera would meet DC characters, the one that excited me the most was this issue. I’m only twenty seven years old, but I would rewatch Space Ghost on syndication whenever it was on, as a little kid Space Ghost was my favorite superhero. I’m not super protective of Space Ghost, so in terms of characterization Christopher Sebela and James Tynion IV in my eyes have more freedom with Space Ghost than his counterpart Hal Jordan. Will this issue make me nostalgic for my cartoons of old? Or will it make me regret reading this issue? Warning there will be spoilers going forward, you’ve been warned.
