Green Lantern Corps #1 (GL vs City Hall Spoilers)

Postby Punchy » Thu Sep 22, 2011 2:28 pm

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.

This is the most I've enjoyed Green Lantern in years and years. I never thought about it, but Guy seems like the sort of guy who couldn't stand being away from Earth too long, and it was great to see how once you're a Green Lantern, you just can't do anything else. It ties in subtly with Hal Jordan's plight in the main title really well.

Nothing says otherwise. Pretty much everything from the GL Universe has stayed the same. GL 1 was a direct continuation from the previous volume.

Actually you should be proud.

Did anybody else find it interesting that Salaak had to remind both Guy and John that Hal was no longer a member of the Green Lantern Corps? Weren't they present when the Guardians stripped him of his ring and sent him home? :smt102
