REVIEW: Planet of The Apes/Green Lantern #2

 

I believe it goes without saying that last months issue left me a bit lukewarm. From a technical standpoint it was very good comic, but I feel like I’m missing something. The Planet of The Apes series is a series I have little to no experience with and last issue didn’t exactly help me understand what’s going on at least on the Apes side. Robbie Thompson is in a tricky situation as he has to placate different fanbases and tell a compelling story. I want to like this series because of the creative team, let’s see if the second issue can turn it around for me.

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: Green Lanterns #18

 

After Volthoom’s return in the Rise of The Third Army, The Wrath of The First Lantern and just recently the Phantom Ring story arc it seems that Sam Humphries has chosen now to reveal the “secret origin” of Volthoom. Now you’ll have to forgive me but I didn’t read The Third Army or The Wrath of The First Lantern so I have no idea if Geoff Johns or any other writers delved into Volthoom’s origin at all. So I have zero expectations for what Sam Humphries has in store for The First Lantern. Warning there will be spoilers going forward, you’ve 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.
