Jesus Christ, people who complain about superhero comics being too dark and violent should not read this issue. In a comic about space policemen with magic rings, we see a character kill all of his allies and then shoot himself in the head. This is grim stuff. But I suppose this is what Tomasi’s take on the Green Lantern Corps has always been, they aren’t so much a police force, but an army, and therefore the stakes and levels of violence are upped. But still, this went to a dark place I’m not sure Green Lantern really should. I mean, it’s not even enjoyable anymore; at least Black Lanterns were fun! This was just depressing. Add to that another scene much like the one in this week’s issue of Green Lantern where the Guardians speechify, this was not a good issue of GLC. Let’s hope the zero issue and it’s Guy Gardner origin will be more fun.
