REVIEW: Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #25

 

You know they’re is an old saying that goes like this, “the apple never falls far from the tree.” No matter how much we try as children to march a different path than our parents. Yes we rebel in our teenage and early adult years, but for most people they become their parents. We claw our way into finding our own sense of individuality as adulthood becomes the norm, until you wake up one morning and scream. Even in the world of DC where legacy is king, certain characters can’t escape their future. Warning they’re will be spoilers going forward. You have been warned.

REVIEW: Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #24

 

Alliances are fragile, we as humans ally ourselves with each other for protection from a greater threat or a common interest. Yet when you look at history, alliances are difficult to form, yet so easily shattered. There is something in our DNA that makes humanity just want to start a relationship, start some shit then immediately break of said relationship no matter now long it lasted. Same goes within the universe of comics, the deadliest of foes have teamed up only to be back at each others throats within six months. Now if that doesn’t tell about this issue then I don’t know what will. Warning they’re will be spoilers. You have been warned.

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.
