Green Lanterns Annual #1 (DC Preview)

A six page preview for the May 30 issue.

It's a fifth week for comics so that means Annuals. And it's the first Annual for Jessica Cruz and Baz as they head to deep space for a very special GLC celebration. But things soon take a deadly turn as this celebration is much more than it seems.

The DC Comics solicit says:

Every thousand years, a ceremony is held on a long-forgotten world to celebrate the life of an ancient Green Lantern hero. Simon Baz and Jessica Cruz are chosen to represent Earth at this event, but they quickly learn not all is as it seems. A secret has been buried on this planet, and it's up to our heroes to find it and put the mystery to rest once and for all!

Andy Diggle?

Haven't seen this name in quite a while - not since Losers and Adam Strange a decade ago.

Diggle has been writing Shadowman over at Valiant.

Perkins did a great job on the art this issue. There was the occasional odd looking panel such as Baz's spine-twisting pose on page 3 :? but overall is was some good stuff. Story-wise it was very character-driven but Diggle balanced it out with just enough action to keep it flowing. The plot took a slightly different turn than what I thought it would be. I was expecting the standard "heroes are drawn into an unexpected trap" schtick and while it looked like that it turns out that there was no diabolical mastermind scheming in the background. Instead it becomes this somewhat tragic tale of heroism vs duty.
