Just like with last week’s Green Lantern #1, it’s somewhat comforting to read a book where very little has changed. This is still the same Green Lantern Corps we’re used to, but perhaps a little fresher. I did notice that the look of Oa has changed a little, is it more in line with the movie? I still haven’t seen it to my eternal shame. One thing I liked about this issue is that it showed both Guy and John on Earth, I like it when the GLs remain a bit more grounded than they have been for a while, and it was interesting to see the struggles that both characters are facing trying to balance being a Green Lantern and having a regular life and job. The artwork from Fernando Pasarin was really strong, he did good work on Emerald Warriors, but I think he’s taken a step up here. Gabe El Taeb’s colours also deserve a mention, they were great and gave Pasarin’s work a new dimension. The threat Tomasi introduces is a little ‘meh’ at the moment, but killing a whole planet certainly grabs you. I imagine that pissed off some readers though, it seems any of the new 52 that have anything even remotely violent or sexy are lambasted at the moment.
