Green Lantern Corps #6 (So am I Spoilers)

Postby Punchy » Sat Feb 18, 2012 9:55 am

I’ve been a bit down on this title for how grim and serious it’s been, but this issue was probably the most serious it’s been so far and I really enjoyed it. The moment where John Stewart broke that GL who was about to betray him’s neck was hardcore. I was sceptical by how this series has turned toe GL Corps from a police force into an army, but this issue made it work somewhat, seeing them come in all guns blazing was cool. It’s all made to work by Fernando Pasarin’s art, he really is great and I’d love to see him on a bigger title such as Superman, I think he’d do a great Supes. I also really liked the ending where the Keepers were forced to dig graves for an entire planet of their victims, that’s like something out of an old EC Comic.

I wanted to like this issue, but I really didn't. John Stewart kills a GL...again? Seriously? Ugh. Enough already. After Mosaic and Mogo, I'm more than a little sick of the only non-white GL being turned into a hardcore killer. Okay, okay, yes, Hal killed Krona. But even he got his mass murder of fellow GLs retconned away. "John Stewart, GL Killer/Planet Killer" has been beaten to death.

Fernando Pasarin is brilliant. Like many of the New 52 artists, I see a very bright future for him.

I hope the next arc isn't nearly as grim and gritty. Tomasi's stories here have gotten way too violent for my tastes. This book needs to lighten up a bit.

Actually I agreed with John killing him. Hes a military man its exactly what he would have done to protect everyone or the mission.

True. But it would've been nice to see Guy Gardner do it instead. For a change.

Guy at the end of the day isnt a military man. He can fight but he has a little hope. John was special forces and will preserve the mission at any cost. Plus Guy wasnt there.
