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.

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.

REVIEW: Hal Jordan & The Green Lantern Corps #17

 

Isn’t the objective of life, is to move beyond our past to find something new about ourselves as people. However that doesn’t apply to the world of comics (shocker I know) where the term “ending” is only used in pure sarcasm because the tale of superheroes is never ending battle and recycling events to fit the current generation of comics. I’m not against going back to older concepts because sometimes you need a back to basics approach. Now what in the world does this have to do with Hal Jordan & The Green Lantern Corps? Well if you saw one of the covers to it then you already know. Read further on, but warning there will be spoilers.

Rumor: “Green Lantern Corps” Screenwriter David Goyer Could Become Director

 

So we already know for sure that Green Lantern Corps will be/is being written by Justin Rhodes (Fantastic Voyage) and David Goyer (Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, Man of Steel). Now comes an offhand comment on a podcast by TheWrap.com writer Jeff Sneider saying that Goyer might pull a Simon Kinberg and want to take the reigns of the camera into his hands, in addition to his producer role as well. Hit the jump for quote and bring your grain of salt with you.

REVIEW: Green Lanterns #19

 

Revamping classic villains for modern readers is such a classic trope in comics, a trope that I hope never dies. Yes I would like some new villains, but if creators can bring fresh new approaches I’m game. Just look at Green Lantern when Geoff Johns took over the title, all I have to mention is Black Hand a character that had little notoriety and becomes a mainstay. So now we enter Doctor Polaris another Green Lantern villain I’m not to familiar but I’m hoping for something deep. Warning there will be spoilers going forward, you’ve been warned.
