I am so thankful that the Green Lantern family of books seemed to be spared the plague that was Flashpoint. Of all the books in the Lantern umbrella, this one was the biggest suprise to me. I am not a huge John Stewart fan, but love Guy (the one TRUE Green Lantern!) Gardner, so I was prepared to give this more than a casual look, and i am glad I did.
The writing on this book has been strong going all the way back to pre Sinestro War issues. Peter Tomasi has a very good grip on this series, and the raminications of the War of the Lanterns is still being felt even a year later.
Which is the reason these boks work better than most of the other books in the new 52 of the DCU.
Patient readers will find something lacking in most of the other books in the line. A dedication to storytelling, letting events play out before our eyes at a nice pace instead of breakneck. You can almost feel the epic coming in the issues ahead. The tease about the next corps has the hook firmly in my mouth, and this book gets my money month after month.
Pasarin’s art is nice to look at, and his storytelling ability is first rate. His characters actually have character. I only hope that the quality of this book maintains, it’d be a shame to see this one dip as it’s a damn fine book, and one of the few shining lights in what is turning into an embarassing relaunch for DC comics entire line.
