Writing a complex review would not do justice to an amazing issue I just read of Green Lantern Corps. So let me explain in a few short bits why I loved this so much.

1) Mogo. Mogo is all and all is well. Everything that involved Mogo, especially towards the end was so badass. Let’s just say that what he does here is probably one of the coolest things you’ll read in comics this year. Yes it’s only January 20th but I still stand by that.

2) Kyle Rayner. While it is still puzzling to think why Tomasi would kill him off and then bring him back in a blink of an eye; he is using Rayner very well. He isn’t the lame Hal Jordan replacement that he once was. Now he is a natural born leader and him trying to reach to Red Lantern Guy was a sweet moment between the two. Speaking of which…

3) Red Lantern Guy Gardner. Something so obvious to happen that when it finally happens, it is so awesome. I just love Guy being a Red Lantern, it totally works for the character! Tomasi writes it so over the top but somehow it still works for me. But again, when we have a moment where Guy is just trying to control himself; it is a sweet moment. We get the gist of the entire personality of Guy with that little moment. He’s so snarky but when it matters most, he just loves his friends.

4) Patrick Gleason. We’ve hit that time of the month where Gleason just clicks with every page of this comic. Everything about this comic was gorgeous to look at. There are several spreads in this that are just so detailed and good looking to look at. The one where Guy is coming right at you, is just a poster waiting to happen. Then the whole sequence with Mogo going along with his directive, that is just icing on the cake of a gorgeous book. If only Gleason could keep this up every single month..

5) Better then Green Lantern? Yes. I still believe this title has outranked it’s more important brother. Sure it is not focusing on the big issues of Blackest Night (at least not yet) but it has been a blast to read since the event started. This is how you should make an action packed tie in. Still give us some comic book moments; but still focus on the characters and focus a bit more on the character development then the fighting. Although there is a good amount of fighting in the first place. Either way, you won’t find a more perfect comic book this week then this issue of Green Lantern Corps.

Story: 5 - Excellent

  1. I agree with your whole review but I didn’t think the art was perfect.  Check my review.  It’s nice to see someone recognize Tomasi’s work.  He does a great job with character development and handles the assortment in GLC very well.
