REVIEW: Green Lanterns #17

 

It’s easy for people to acknowledge what makes them afraid, it could be spiders, giant oceans, or the fear of being alone (looking at you Dark Knight). In my own personal experience it’s generally easier to admit that you’re afraid of something and actually confronting the heart of said fear. Humans generally don’t enjoy being terrified, it reverses us to a vulnerable state. This is a Green Lantern website and facing your fear head on is what being a Green Lantern is all about, so let’s see if Simon Baz finally tackles his inner demon.

REVIEW: Hal Jordan & The Green Lantern Corps #14

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.

REVIEW: Green Lanterns #16

When you think of iconic team ups within the DCU, your first thoughts might pop to Batman and Superman or The Flash and Green Lantern or Green Arrow and Green Lantern. However one partnership that tends to get overlooked and that’s Batman and Green Lantern. Whether it’s Batman knocking out Guy Gardner with one punch or Hal Jordan helping Bruce Wayne cope with his inner fears. The contrast between these heroes is night and day, more so than even Batman’s relationship with Superman. Now we get to see a new generation of Green Lantern meet the Dark Knight. Warning there will be spoilers going forward. You have been warned.

REVIEW: Planet Of The Apes/ Green Lantern #1

 

When this book was first announced I was honestly surprised that these two very different (yet rooted in science fiction) would be meeting each other. I’m gonna be completely honest in that a small experience when it comes to Planet of The Apes (I’ve seen the original exactly once) so I’m hoping that this series isn’t a exclusive barrier for fans of either side. Who knows maybe this crossover will actually create new fans. Also if you’re wondering I’ll eventually get around to reviewing the Star Trek/Green Lantern review…..maybe. Warning there will be spoilers going forward. You’ve been warned.

REVIEW: Hal Jordan & The Green Lantern Corps #13

 

I’m gonna level with you for one second, and it might be a bit radical when you factor in the types of comics I tend to enjoy the most. I believe that some part of that “mythical” aspect of the DC heroes isn’t as prevalent. This isn’t a rallying cry to force creators to write a certain style but to find unique circumstances to emphasize what makes a hero different from everyday people. Especially in the DC Universe where the Justice League themselves are treated like the Greek Pantheon. What does this have to do with this issue? Read further on and find out, there will be spoilers.

REVIEW: Green Lanterns #15

 

Whoever is reading this I want you to take a look at the person in the mirror. Now take into account what you accomplish on a daily basis and more than likely it’s a simple process of getting out of bed, putting on your work clothes and doing your job. For others it’s not as easy, for others getting out of bed is the biggest challenge of their given day. I’ve been highly critical of how Sam Humphries has handled Jessica Cruz’s anxiety over the last fifteen issues. Well today I might be changing my tune about that. Spoilers are to follow, you’ve been warned.

REVIEW: Hal Jordan & The Green Lantern Corps #12

 

Forgive ladies and gentlemen, but the reality is we live in a divided world. Nowadays it’s so easy to find people who fit their ideas and ignore whatever idea their “opposition” brings to them. When I sit at the bus stop thinking about people who flat ignore the other side of the argument it flat out scares me. What I like about comics is that it should emphasizes the more optimistic side of humanity. What exactly does my ranting about fake new and people ignoring facts have to do with Green Lanterns fighting a crazed Larfleeze? Read my review and find out! Spoilers are to follow!

REVIEW: Justice League/Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #1

 

Let’s rewind the clock back to 1995, I’m a young lad having fun on the playground running out with my friends acting out what we say in the hit show, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. Fast forward a few more years and the Bruce Timm Justice League cartoon bursts onto the scene, bringing the legacy of the Justice League to a whole new generation. I’ve seen my fair share of crazy crossovers that I thought would never happen, but this six issue just might take the cake. Warning there will be spoilers so be sure to read your comic before reading the review. You’ve been warned!

REVIEW: Green Lanterns #14

Hello everybody and welcome to 2017! Yes it is a new year and that means a sorta fresh new start for our resident Green Lanterns! This issue concludes the Phantom Lantern arc and while I’ve been critical it there are many aspects that I’ve enjoyed. As a fan of the Green Lantern mythos I want this series to be good and enjoyable for both new readers and veteran readers. Will Jessica and Simon move past self deprecation and actually believe in themselves? Will Jessica actually form a construct that’s not completely abstract? What about Frank Laminski? There will be spoilers going forward, so you have been warned.
