Green Lantern: New Guardians #5 (Thunder-Palm Style Spoilers

Postby Punchy » Wed Feb 01, 2012 1:25 pm

Thankfully this issue featured hardly any Larfleeze, so it was automatically an improvement over the last one. I even quite liked Glomulus, if we could get rid of his master and just have Glommy, that would be fine by me. This issue was good in that it allowed for there to be a bit more of a focus on the non-Kyle members of this ‘team’, so we got to spend some time with Arkillo, Saint Walker and Fatality, and most intriguingly, a bit of exploration of the Indigo Tribe. The Indigo Lanterns have been the only Corps not to get a storyline really focussed on them so far, so I hope it’s coming, I reckon there’s a dark secret. I wonder what the deal is with the planets in the Orrery? Okaara and Tamaran have both been destroyed right? Interesting, are we going to see a Krypton? I wonder why a Morgan Freeman movie about Rugby would do such a thing. (That’s an Invictus joke, not a very good one I know, barely even a joke).

I wonder the Tamaraneans looked different from Starfire?

Yeah, that is supposed to be the next arc in the main Green Lantern title. Unfortunately, I didn't care for the Indigo Tribe when they were first introduced, the haven't grown on me yet, and it's been so long since they were introduced that I really don't care about their back story.

As far as this book is concerned, I find myself really enjoying it more than I thought I would. I liked the little hints that Larfleeze's constructs may be slightly more sentient than originally thought. The concept of all of these planets being trapped within the Orrery is definitely I intriguing. Are they actually versions of these planets from one of the alternate 51 universes or just detailed copies?
