Green Lantern #12 (Quit posturing and get in the air Spoiler

Postby Punchy » Sun Aug 19, 2012 4:38 pm

Hal and Sinestro face off against an army of zombies, but it’s not as much fun as it sounds, because this issue is firmly in ‘crossover set-up’ mode. We are given a massive heaping of foreshadowing about what’s coming up, and Johns basically spells outright what is going to happen in each GL book during the event. This is done in a pretty ham-fisted way, as the cunting Guardians gloat and plot and generally act like evil shits. That said, I am intrigued by the idea of Hal Jordan being the ‘greatest Black Lantern’, if only because that means he’s going to die, heck, he may already be dead by the end of this issue. So yeah, this issue was kind of a waste, just get to the crossover and gun-toting Green Lantern already! At least we got to see some zombies get incinerated, that was cool. The artwork in this issue was a little bit of a mish-mash too, Guedes and Calafiore are both decent artists, but their styles are very different, and didn’t really mesh for me.
