REVIEW: Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #22

 

Throughout time we as people have always found a way to retain some sort of normalcy. No matter the chaos surrounding the world at any given time, it’s utterly important to keep with a routine. It’s not something explored deeply in the realm of superhero comics. Yes they’re breather issues occasionally that give some introspective to the lives of the heroes we follow on a weekly basis, but usually it’s one shattering crisis after another. Forcing readers to keep with up a break neck speed. Does this issue continue the rapid pace or does it slow thing down a bit. They’re will be spoilers, you have been warned.

Let’s be real for just a moment. Given the state of the world right now, despite all our individual differences there is one unifying thought. Despite what people say out loud, we as humans are thinking about the future in some fashion, whether it’s tomorrow, six months, five years or two decades, the future is on everybody’s mind. Now imagine if you lived in a universe filled with strange people and beings actually coming from the future. How would that effect your outlook into the future? Enough meandering, there will be spoilers going forward! You have been warned.

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: 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: 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: 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.

REVIEW: Hal Jordan & The Green Lantern Corps #16

 

As long as I can remember, personal trauma has been part of a being superhero. I realize that hasn’t been the case always but for me as a reader the amazing set pieces and crazy costumes has always walked side by side with the pain of their past. However in mainstream comics there is a reliance on that trauma a bit to much that readers can be beaten over the head with it thus losing the power of whatever the moment the writer is using. Heck even our own Hal Jordan has been subject to the overuse of his Dad dying (spoilers btw). Warning there will be spoilers going forward. You have been warned.

REVIEW: Hal Jordan & The Green Lantern Corps #15

 

Okay I will admit that two weeks ago I was a bit harsh in my criticism that the cover ruined the ending of the comic. I did amid that when I first saw the title of this current arc, my mind instantly went to Saint Walker since he’s the only Blue Lantern who’s actually progressed outside of his initial appearance (does nobody else remember the elephant Blue Lantern?). So I set my own personal expectations that it might have been a new Blue Lantern. I love Saint Walker regardless so let’s see what Robert Venditti has in store for the only Blue Lantern in all the universe.

Imagine it’s your first day of school, and for the sake of the argument let’s just assume it’s a brand new school where you have to find new friends in order to make the adjustment process a little bit easier. Working together with complete strangers who might share a different ideology is perhaps one of the more difficult aspects of humanoid life. Of course when you factor in power rings things become even more complicated. So where does that leave the new partnership between the Sinestro Corps and The Green Lantern Corps? There will be spoilers going forward, you’ve been warned.

REVIEW: Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps Vol. 1: Sinestro’s Law

 

Ask most Green Lantern readers in the last five ye–scratch that, the last freaking decade and they’ll tell you the two creators synonymous with the brand are Geoff Johns and Ethan Van Sciver. No other duo has a made mark on the series than they did way back in 2006. They started this Rebirth with Green Lantern: Rebirth and now the legacy they left on the franchise has become the newest DC Comics initiative for all titles. That’s quite a standard to align your entire publishing line on, but damn if it doesn’t give me goosebumps just thinking about so many comics being that damn good. So who would DC put to the task of recreating that magic from what seems like so long ago? Who? Well, just a guy who was tapped to replace Geoff Johns when he departed the title, in Robert Venditti and one of the biggest artists in comics…Ethan Van Sciver! Below, I’ll give you my take on the first volume of this historic series and whether or not it shines as bright as the legacy it follows! Click here to read the full article.
